There is nothing I love more than that perfect manicure that looks stunning in Instagram photos and adds that extra pep to my step.
While I’m a color lover and usually granite towards ombre nails or a statement color (like pink!) there is something so timeless and chic about nail designs with diamonds. The gems catch the light as you move your hands and add a special bit of magic to your outfit.
Nails with diamonds on them are usually found via stick-on nails, though you can buy gemstones and use nail glue to attach them to your own custom nail designs. I’m always really helpless at painting my right hand, so I usually go with stick-on nails.
I really love press-on nails, especially designs from Impress. They have subtle nail designs with diamonds on one finger all the way up to sets that are totally diamond-studded if you want to go BIG. But they aren’t the only beauty company out there. In this post I’m sharing all my favorite brands to buy stick-ons along with tons of photos of at-home polish and acrylic nail designs with diamonds so you can copy the styles on yourself!
