#LLCrisp: Rice Krispies Treats Nails

In Essie, Nails, OPI, The Lacquer Legion by Jacki9 Comments

Good afternoon, readers! It’s this month’s nail art day with The Lacquer Legion and the prompt is “Crisp.” Instead of doing something seasonally appropriate as the days grow cooler, I’ve made my nails into Rice Krispies Treats…literally.

Here’s how I did it!

  • I started out with two coats of Essie Marshmallow. I had to use the appropriate base color, of course.
  • Next, I applied a coat of OPI Glitter Off and pressed Rice Krispies cereal bits to my nails. I had to break quite a few and apply them in a puzzle sort of way.
  • Once dry, I used my cuticle nippers to cut off the excess on the tips and edges.
  • No top coat as I wanted the cereal to really keep it’s texture.

What do you think? Of course this is a complete joke. I wish I had time to do a proper nail art mani for this month’s Lacquer Legion prompt but life is too crazy. I figured I could join in goofily if I couldn’t do it seriously. Haha, thanks for reading!
