Turquoise Stone Statement Nails

By  February 12, 2014

This intricate jewelry-inspired design looks like it took hours to create. But really, all it takes is a couple of coats of a fabulous turquoise lacquer and a few dots of black on top. Even better, a crackled turquoise mani that looks just like the real thing means you can get away with “forgetting” your jewelry for a week or so.
