Breakfast at Tiffany's-Inspired Nails

The first thing that pops into my head when I see robin's egg blue, black and diamonds is Audrey Hepburn and "Breakfast at Tiffany's." I saw these nails over at Prettyfulz and fell in love. I can't find the original link, but they looked really cute on her shorter nails. My nails are getting monstrously long, so the proportions were a little off, but I still love the color combination.

For the base color, I used two coats of China Glaze For Audrey. I seriously can't get enough of this color — it's one of those shades that just makes me feel happy looking at it. Next, I freehanded two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on half of each nail. That one is becoming my go-to white shade, though I've discovered that although I'm only used about a quarter of the bottle and had it for a couple months, the formula is getting a little clumpy.

The dots were made with my dotting tool and China Glaze Smoke and Ashes for a metallic black shimmer. I used a striper brush from It's So Easy Nails for the vertical line. For the accent nail, I used tweezers to place a row of small silver rhinestones. Overall, I liked it -- and with a few coats of Seche Vite, none of those rhinestones fell off!
