Pretty, pretty princess shattered diamond manicure

Diamonds are one of the most desirable stones in the world, and with good reason. When women wear this ultra-luxurious gem, they feel beautiful and special. While most of us can't afford to wear one diamond ring — let alone one on each finger — even the tightest of budgets can likely accommodate this princess shattered diamond manicure.
Boasting a soft, iridescent purple base, this nail look gets some extra oomph from the addition of cellophane paper and optional rhinestones. Try this look the next time you're heading to the club or venturing out on a first date.
