my 500th post, featuring Sonoma Sunset!

Hello and welcome to the 500th post here at Rebecca Likes Nails!
500 is a lot of posts, and I've put so much time and energy into them, but the love I get back from you guys makes it worth it!


I wanted to do some simple nail art to commemorate the occasion, so I laid down some rhinestones and stamped on a cute 500! (However I didn't have an exclamation point stamp so I freehanded that one on and it doesn't look so great.)


The numbered plate I got on eBay but it's available from Konad as well. I stamped using China Glaze - Millennium
But what is this beautiful polish underneath?


That would be the amazing Sonoma Nail Art - Sonoma Sunset by my friend Michelle.
It's a stunning purple glitter that I'm so glad to own!


I had a really hard time getting a macro picture of the glitter (because it's so darn reflective and besides that, my camera hates purple) but I think you can see pretty well. There's a whole bunch of different colors and shapes of glitter. It's awesome! And this is just one thin coat over the base color, which is:


China Glaze - Grape Juice.
A great shimmery purple that needs just 2 coats.


It's been a really long time since I've worn rhinestones and I forgot how funny they feel! Especially all in a line like this. I keep running my thumb over it.


It pretty much doesn't get better than glitters like this.
You can find this polish on Michelle's Etsy store, which is tentatively going to reopen on June 1st, but at this time I don't know if this one will be available. All her creations are amazing though, so definitely check her out!


That picture really shows the colors of the glitter nicely. Gah, I adore this!


Thanks again to everyone who reads my blog, whether this is the first post you've read, or the five-hundredth. I love all of you!

And now I'll get started on the next 500...
