Born Pretty Store: Black Rhinestone Studs

Hi there lovely ladies (and gentlemen?). Today I've got some nail art to show you that I created recently. It features black rhinestone studs form the BornPrettyStore.com which I used to accent my Zoya Blu manicure. There are tons of possibilities for these studs, but for this manicure I chose to incorporate them into a stamping pattern...

For the manicure I started out with a base of the lovely Zoya Blu and stamped with a pattern from Bundle Monster plate BM-322 using KleanColor Metallic Aqua. I used nail glue to adhere the black studs to the nails since I did not want to top coat over the studs to seal them in place...

I love using rhinestones to accent my manicures and these are perfect for the job. They are a bit edgier than the standard rhinestones for sure. Granted it is probably difficult to tell that with my chosen color palate. Making a baby blue manicure "edgy" is no easy task...

The black studs are made out of aluminium and measure 1.5mm in diameter. They are convex (or concave) depending on how you look at them. One side is shiny black and the other is a dark gray. They come packaged in a small ziplock baggie and there is plenty of them in each package for many manicures. In my opinion  you definitely get your money's worth with these...

A closer look at the studs...

I transferred them to a small container for storage along with my other accessories, but that is certainly not to say that they can't be stored in the sturdy bag they are sold in...

I would love to know what you think of these! Have you tried accenting your manicures with studs before?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. I did exactly the same manicure a while ago :) http://onlypassingby.blogspot.co.il/2012/11/china-glaze-deviantly-darling-over-kiko.html

    and obviously... I love it! :)

  2. This many is great! I never thought before of wearing studs on the nails, it sounds interesting

  3. Great! I like how you "incorporated" the studs into stamping :)

  4. Oooh, these look like so much fun!

  5. These are so pretty. I can never make studs or gemstones stay on my nails though, no matter how much top coat or anything i put on. I wish i could though, theyre gorgeous

  6. Great idea to incorporate rhinestone studs into a stamping pattern! I like them, I still don't have them.. :-)

  7. Thank you so much everyone! I'm so glad that you like the design and the studs! I think they are so much fun and will be showing you more manicure with them for sure :)

    @Jane, how funny is that to use the exact same pattern and colors! Love it :)

    @Pamela, have you tried using nail glue? They stay on a bit longer than just top coat. Granted if you tend to pick at them (as I do) they don't last long at all...

  8. Very goog color choice et very good idea for the studs. Beautiful work.

  9. @cathenail, thank you so much! I'm really glad that you like it :)
