The Born Pretty Store was kind enough to let me pick some nail art items for review from their shop. One of the items I picked was this set of nail art studs. I don’t use studs all that much so I thought it would be a fun experiment to see how they worked for a ‘studs beginner’. I was really drawn to the stars. There is just something about stars that I love in nail art!!
I started with two coats of Mentality Asphalt (which I also originally received as a press sample). Then I applied a top coat and right away (per nail) placed a star stud. After each nail was done, then I went an applied another layer of top coat to seal in the stud. If you really want the studs to last, you’re going to need to use nail glue. I change my mani every day so I did not want or need that kind of lasting power.
I found that these studs were easy to pick up with tweezers and place on my nails. Sometimes studs just will NOT cooperate. Maybe it was the shape of the stars or something, but these were nice and easy to apply.
