Review - Neon Studs 2 Ways

7 March 2014

Hi Everyone!

Born Pretty Store was kind enough to send me these 2mm Candy Fluorescent Coloured Studs to review AND I also have a 10% off coupon code for all my readers... KVL91.

If you don't feel like painting details or a specific pattern, studs are an easy yet fun way to add some interest to your nails! Studs can also help create a variety of looks depending on the colour, size and shape of the studs. Born Pretty Store sells a whole variety of Nail Studs.

For my review, I wanted to show off these neon studs in 2 different ways... which one do you like?

For my first look, I created a double accent nail featuring my FIRST EVER indie polish (which I absolutely ADORE)!!! For my ring and pinky fingers, I applied 3 coats of Totally Tubular by KB Shimmer and 2 coats of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying Top Coat.

For my index and middle fingers, I applied 2 coats of 4 In The Morning by OPI (from the Gwen Stefani collection). It is a gorgeous black polish with a waxy, satin finish that gives it a leather type finish. And I adhered the 2 nail studs using nail glue since I didn't want to add a top coat over the satin finish of 4 In The Morning.

For my second look, I wanted to pair the neon studs with a neon glitter topper... another AMAZING indie polish that I have been wanting for a very long time and FINALLY got it... Clowning Around by Polish Me Silly.

I started with 2 coats of blanc by essie. I then taped off a V-shaped half moon at each cuticle to make sure I had a plain white background against the stud. I applied 2 coats of Clowning Around by Polish Me Silly on the remainder of each nail. I then applied a different coloured stud on each nail and finished off the look with 2 coats of good to go top coat by essie.

As I mentioned above, here is the coupon code that will give you 10% off when you shop at the Born Pretty Store website. If you are in Canada, you can change the currency to $ CAD at the top right corner of the page. BPS offers FREE shipping worldwide and it will take around 5-6 weeks to receive your purchase in Canada. They also sell other products... not just nail art supplies. I will share pictures of a watch I bought from the store in the near future.
