Diagonal manicures are one of my favorites. They are really easy to do but they look different and, that being said, very unique and great.
- base coat
- light purple nail polish
- darker nail polish with a striper
- colorful rhinestones
- top coat
- optional - nail glue
- First goes the transparent base coat.
- After the base is dried, we're going in with light purple from one corner of the nail diagonally to the other corner. To make it more precise you can make a line with a pen or pencil and then cover it with nail polish. Do not stress if the line is not perfectly straight.
- Pick some nails you want to put rhinestones on.
- To disguise a rough edge, we'll cover it with darker nail polish. Straight line is made with a striper in the polish or a thin brush. It goes on all other nails but those previously picked out.
- Choose whichever rhinestones you think go together and start placing them either on wet top coat or on nail glue.
- Seal it with top coat. Or don't. Mine don't have top coat.

- light purple nail polish: No. 59 Silver me by MaxFactor (there is no "Silver me" any more but it should be similar to No. 30 Chilled Lilac)
- dark purple striper: No. 11 grape-metallic rocks! by Essence (I couldn't find it in Essence's page but this is what are you looking for)
