So I decided I needed to give these Nail Art Manicure Spike Studs a go the minute I saw them on the Born Pretty Store website. Badass chic at it's best!
These studs are easy to apply, I just smashed(well placed gently with my fingers) them into my topcoat. Although had I been wearing them longer then a few hours I would have used nail glue(I will tell you why I didn't wear them for longer in a second). The studs are just over 5mm high. I honestly don't think I would ever wear these are more than an accent nail. As cool as they are as you can see they can be a tad overwhelming if you go crazy with them. In the end when I took them off I used acetone on the bottom and removed the polish that had stuck to the bottom of them. This did not appear to ruin the finish. Which I am extremely pleased about because that means even though I have 10 I can hypothetically use them more than once. The square nail studs are also from the Born Pretty Store also and the microbeads from Michael's. I also used OPI's Black Onyx and My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
I received a pack of 10 for $2.98(USD) although they are current on sale for $1.99(USD). Alternatively you can get a pack of 100 studs for $7.99(USD).
Now the reason I didn't wear this manicure longer was the rest of the manicure. I went all out and did a skittle, but for some reason my Seche Vite went and ruined it all. It didn't shrink my polish, it made these weird bubbles. Not air bubbles like when you polish is to thick, the polish kind of separated into bubbles that reminded me of spotted polish. So I just took it off. Le sadness.
Anyways sad manicure aside if you would like some of these amazing looking studs go over to The Born Pretty Store and grab some! And remember to use our discount code EAL91 for a 10% discount. Not only that but shipping is always free!
