Hello my lovelies and happy Sunday! Today I have some really fun stuff to show you! I've been wanting to try nail studs for a while now but couldn't bring myself to buy large quantities of just one style that I knew I would end up not using entirely. But Born Pretty Store came to the rescue by creating this awesome wheel* with a lot of types of studs in silver and gold. Here's how it looks.
|Born Pretty Store Studs|
The wheel has square, round and ring studs of several sizes, both in silver and in gold. It also contains some gold oval ones, some gold heart shaped ones and some silver stars. It's the first time that I actually see studs in these awesome shapes. I would say that there is more gold than silver in this wheel, but I love both, so it's a decent mix. The great thing about these is that you can reuse them as much as you want. You just take them off with your polish, clean them with nail polish remover and put them back in the box. So unless they fall off and you lose them, there is really no way you can run out.
I decided to do 2 looks with these to show you how versatile they are. And since Valentine's Day is in less than one month, they are both somehow related to this theme. Here's the first one.
Sometimes I like to keep it simple and elegant. These nails are perfect for a date and can be worn anywhere because the studs are not too overpowering. I used a base of H&M Nude and after it dried I put one drop of top coat at the base of the nail and placed the stud with a pair of tweezers on top. I finished everything with a coat of Seche Vite. I don't have any nail glue so I didn't use it, but these were still well anchored and there was no danger of them falling off.
The second look I did is a bit more edgy, but also romantic. It involves roses and red polish.
I used Golden Rose 60 as a base for this manicure. Then I stamped with China Glaze Liquid Leather using plate m65 that I also got from Born Pretty Store a while ago. I used the same method to place the square studs on the accent nail. Just a few drops of top coat and then a coat on top after placing them. I was honestly thinking they would be harder to place and they would bother me but I didn't mind having them on the nail at all.
These studs are my new toy and I already made another manicure with them, which I will show you next week. They are so awesome and the fact that there are so many styles makes me think that I will never get bored of them.
