Jewelry & Nail Art: Amethyst + Giveaway

January 23, 2014

Hello ladies! In today's Jewelry & Nail Art post I have an amazing ring which I truly adore, and a matching nail art of course! I received this lovely amethyst ring from Delezhen a couple weeks ago, and I can't get enough of it. This ring is absolutely beautiful and it's way prettier in real life, so I hope that trough my photos you can see just a bit of it's beauty. If you liked this ring, you will be happy to know that I have a little surprise for you at the bottom of this post ;)



The Nail Art:
To create this design I started with two coats of Zoya Tru, a beautiful warm purple with red and gold shimmer. I decided to create a simple and sparkly design, so I thought that a silver foil could be a nice addition that will also look nice with the ring.
To apply the nail foil I used a special foil glue, brushing random strokes over the purple base. Once the glue was dry enough, I applied the holographic silver foil with a tapping motion. To prevent the foil from wrinkling once a top coat is applied, I chose to use a clear gel top coat insted of my regular Poshe top coat, and it worked great.
The holographic effect of the silver foil was a bit hard to capture with my indoor light setup, so it mostly looks silver over the purple base. I still love this look and I think it works great with this ring, so I was pretty pleased with the result.





The Ring:
The beautiful purple amethyst ring I am wearing in this post was handcrafted by Masha Lezhen, owner and creator of Delezhen jewelry
The ring is made of sterling silver and pear shaped natural amethyst gemstone. The gemstone isn't completely clear, it has interesting lines and particles in it, which I think is wonderful because it makes it even more unique and one of a kind. The ring itself is perfectly handcrafted, just a flawless work of a great artist.
I fell in love with this ring instantly! I adore it's simple and delicate design and how luxurious this ring looks on the hand. Although amethyst isn't my birthstone (mine is actually Ruby, since I was born in July), it's definitely my favorite gemstone, so I'm really loving this ring.
This ring is also designed to be worn as a stacking ring, so you can mix and match it with your favorite rings to get an interesting look, or just wear it on it's own if you want to go for the delicate and classy look.

  2. I would love this ring. Not only is it my birthstone, but purple is my very favorite color. I have almost every Zoya, OPI, & Sally Hansen Complete purple polish. I am obsessed with all things purple and have been since I was very small. BTW, how do you repost to instagram? Is there a shortcut?

      Sorry for the late reply - about instagram, not that I know of. You just need to save the photo and post to your feed. I usually send the photos from pc to email, then save them on the phone.
