Hello! Today I have my first attempt at nail studs to show you. I received these cool blue leaf studs from Born Pretty for review. Since I had never used them before I decided to go simple for my first time. My next conundrum was how to put them on and what to use to make them stick. I dug around in my bin of random nail art stuff from the days of Nail Art Society (think that was the name) and found some tweezer type things that worked for picking up the studs. I put down a layer of topcoat then placed the stud on the nail. I love they way this turned out so much. It took a very simple mani of China Glaze Shore Enuff and First Mate and amped it up a notch.
I think I didn't push them down enough into the topcoat so they popped off pretty quick. I've been advised to try some nail glue next time buy some very smart ladies. Born Pretty has all sorts of nail art supplies. Click the link to head over to their store front. If you'd like to go directly to the nail studs click here. I have a discount code for Born Pretty one the right side of the blog. The code is FEMJ6 will save you 10%. Here's a link for a great sampling of everything they offer.
Until next time...
