BEAUTY | Rose Gold Nail Piercing







A manicure that is on the edge of bad taste and tackiness.
But I think that one single rose gold ring per hand through a white nail looks pretty badass.
This gives me so many high school flashbacks.
One tiny piercing on its own is cool enough, so I don't even bother putting on any more jewelry around my wrists or fingers.

How to get the hole through your nail:
Lay your hand on a flat surface with your palm facing up, and from the back of your nail carefully 'screw' the pin through with a bit of pressure. If you keep turning the pin between your index finger and thumb you'll get a hole after a minute or two. Be careful not to poke it through as it can cause cracks in your nail. Then put a tiny ring through it, which you can get at any shop where they sell jewelry parts and beads, I got my rose gold rings at Beadies Amsterdam.

There's a thin line for nail piercing between looking cheap and awesome, and you girl do it right.

This is so late 90s, early 2000 - I remember getting in trouble because I had poked dangly little crosses through my fingernails.

Yours looks a lot more classy though. x

Haha, I remember the "nail piercing" was a free gift included in Czech version of Mädchen magazine in probably like 1998 or something like that. I was 11 at that time and found that so cool!
I found it cool today again :)

White nails always remind me of the stuff used when you spell a word wrong, to cover it. Like tipex but you've made white nails look cool and amazing tip for the ring detailing. Love it

Ivania your creativity never ceases to amaze me.

eliza said...

This takes me back to primary school when the big thing was to pierce as many of your nails as possible.. I think we definitely crossed the 'tacky' line, but this is amazing. I'm so impressed at how good thing looks!

Olga said...

I had exactly the same idea when I was in high school... I think. Well, many years ago. :) But I could never do it because my nails are too brittle, and even when they do grow a bit, they are all crooked and ugly, so I just cut them short. I need working hand for everything I do anyway. :) But I think this looks great on your pretty nails! I think a stud earring would also look great, maybe a small silver or gold ball stud. That's if you can find a backing small enough to be hidden by your nail of course. :)

Oh my god YES...this takes me back to the wacky stuff I did to my nails in high school! I like the simplicity of this...subtle enough that most people won't even notice, but those that do will either give you the "WTF" face or a simple nod of approval. :-)

*nods approvingly*

Jessica said...

supergaaf!
Ik vind je nagellak ook erg mooi. Ik ben zelf al erg lang opzoek naar goed dekkende witte nagellak. Welke nagellak is dit als ik vragen mag?

Milda Narmon said...

I've poked through my nails with needles whilst sewing several times, but not once did I think to make it into an accessory. Love the idea, reminds me of a nose piercing - when left on it's own it looks perfectly cool and not tacky.

Kim said...

Waah echt badass inderdaad! Gaaf!

I don't think I could bring myself to do this. I know nails are "dead" parts of your body, but the idea of piercing any of me freaks me out so much...

What a great take on nail art! The world of nail art is usually dominated by the ‘more is more’ approach, to see a cleverly thought out minimalist design is exciting.

I miss my lip piercing so much, but I had to get rid of all of my piercings for work. :( Now I only have my ears but since I stretched them - now growing back - I can only wear certain earrings.

This one really freaked me out. It's just amazing design and is looking very beautiful with your nail. Moreover the color of your nail-paint is going perfect with that Rose Gold Nail Piercing.
