Crystallized nail art with salt!

Lately I have been reading a lot about “caviar manicure” and 3 dimensional nail art, and today I was thinking: “how can I reproduce a similar effect with something that I already have at home?”…Salt was the first thing that came to my mind (and according to Google, I am not the first one to come up with such idea!).

Anyway, the process is really simple, and considering what you need, it is very cheap as well!

You just need a nail polish (any colour can do, however I think that the brighter it is, the better result you will get. For my first attempt I have used two fluo polishes bought  a while ago in Primark), some fine salt and a transparent nail polish topper (which will give the crystallized effect).

I was a bit concerned with its resistance to water, but noticed that if you cover all the salt with a generous amount of topper, it is 100% water proof!
