For this look I started out with Zoya Elisa from the fall Diva collection and allowed it to try. I then added a layer of clear top coat and set a single gold square stud from the Born Pretty Store to accent the point. It doesn't get any easier than that and I really like how clean and classy this turned out...
See, they are sharp...
The gold square studs for this manicure were kindly sent to me for review from the Born Pretty Store. They are two millimeters in diameter and made out of aluminium so they are very light. The are convex (or I suppose concave depending on which side you are looking from) with the outside a shiny gold and the inside a gray base metal. They come packaged in a resealable plastic bag and there is plenty to create lots of manicures.
A closer look at the 2mm studs... and now that I look closely... anyone else notice a typo?
I think these make a fun easy accent to any manicure and I really can't wait to play around with them more in the near future!
I dedicate this manicure to my aunt who loves this blog and is always telling everyone she can about it. She asked me why I never change the shape of my nails and in some way this is my answer to her question. I'm too scared to hurt myself. ;)
P.S. In case you were wondering, I returned my nails back to their original square/squoval shape, but I had to file them down to nubbins to do it. So I'm not very motivated to swatch or do any nail art at the moment even though I have sooo much I want to show you. Luckily, I have some manicures to entertain you while they are growing out and being pampered a bit...
I'd love to know what you think of this. Have you tried studs on the nails before?
Thanks for looking!
