I don't think I could come back from a couple weeks of travel hiatus without showing off some nail art, so here's some nail art I was working on with some vibrant pink metal studs from Born Pretty Store. In case you're not familiar with Born Pretty Store, they're a kick ass online shop for a TON of nail art tools, studs, nail tape - just anything you might need to make your nails look fab - they've probably got it. I also have a special blogger coupon that you can use to get free worldwide shopping and an additional 10% off: ARBQ10
So these are listed on the site as "90Pcs 4mm Mini Colored Heart Shaped Metallic Stud Rhinestone UV Gel Nail Art Decoration", item number 12151. These come in a ton of neon colours but I opted to get the pink ones because I figure it would get the most application that way. They came in two small "dime bags" (haha!) and I didn't bother counting to see if 90 pieces were included. It was just PLENTY in my opinion.
The first nail art I wanted to try was to add them over top my OPI Sheer Tints rainbow fishtail look. It looks very "Lisa Frank"!
I also tried to do an abstract heart tree geometric pattern (note that this is where my geometric pattern obsession first started). I like it - but I wish my neon pink polish matched the hue of the studs a bit better. Ah well, I still like them:
All in all these are great little hearts to add to your vibrant nail art - I think they aren't as versatile as a silver or gold stud but with the right polish combination, you'll be able to make something killer! I also would recommend to keep to 1-2 hearts per nail - when I tried putting on 3, I was running out of some serious real estate on my nail!
Again, for free worldwide shopping and an additional 10% off, use ARBQ10 at the check out!
Are these summer ready or what? What can you imagine using these cute little nail studs for?
