Sorry I've been MIA, I was on holidays. But now I'm home again and full of energy! :) While I was gone, I had some nail mail coming in awaiting my return. I have so many things to show you, but today I'll be starting with these gorgeous 3mm golden studs I received from Born Pretty Store for review.
The application was very easy! Just like with rhinestones, you simply add some clear polish or topcoat on your nail and place the studs with the help of a dotting tool or any other tool of your choice. Since I used a matte nail polish, I didn't want the topcoat to ruin the matte looks, so I first applied one coat of polish on all my nails. Once dry, I applied another thick coat of polish on a single nail and while still wet, I placed the studs on my nail and applied very light pressure so the studs would "sink" a little in the polish. The studs stayed in place for about 3 days until they started falling off one by one.
Because my nails are long and wide, I used the 3mm studs. If you have shorter nails, I'd advise you to use the 2mm studs. But If you have tiny nails, then maybe the 1.5mm studs would be a better option for you. It all, of course, depends on what designs you want to create.
These studs come in these little plastic bags, which can be handy for storage, but I would have preferred if they'd come in one of those plastic wheel thingies, if you know what I mean. It would have made application easier.
