Nail polish rings!

DS - Original & black crackle / Nfu-Oh - 50 & Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Burgundy Orchid

Various green glitters & LaRosa - Maroon Red crackle / Dried flowers & China Glaze - White Cap

Holo-blue-purple glitter franken / Blue-purple glitter franken & black crackle

Sinful Colors - Deep Blue Ocean & Sally Hansen - Purple Pizzazz / MAC - Bad Fairy & black crackle

Deborah Lippmann - Happy Birthday & various glitters / Iridescent stars on silver

These are my first attempts at making nail polish jewelry - ten ⌀25mm glass cabochons with matching silver toned ring blanks... uh, except that I do not have any epoxy at my disposal right now so I haven't glued the cabochons to the blanks. :p I absolutely loved making these, and I already ordered ten more cabochons/ring blanks! I want to make a hundred of these! The only one I wasn't that pleased with was the iridescent stars one which I thought was too... cheap and tacky, perhaps? Or one-dimensional compared to the others, dunno. It looks inherently better in the photo above than it did IRL,  sooo I gave the cabochon a nice little acetone bath and tried another combo of colours - hot pink holo and iridescent glitter (no pics yet, sorry)! 8)

 All together now: Cabochons in direct sunlight

One, two three four, can I have a little more: Cabochons indoors, w/ flash

These are absolutely stunning! How did you make the one with the dried flowers? Too bad the stars didn't work out in real life; the photo looks fantastic.
