Happy Sunday! It seems the weekends feel shorter and shorter, and before you know it, Monday is here!
I was recently contacted by Born Pretty Store to do a review and of course, I said yes! If you've never heard of Born Pretty Store, you need to run to their website (or let your fingers do the running for you!) They have everything you can think of to do nail art and their prices are really reasonable, plus the quality is great. And they offer FREE world wide shipping!
I decided to review the fluorescent studs since they would be my first time using studs!
These come in a hard plastic case with a rotating lid, and has an opening so you can get studs from one section and not have to worry about the rest spilling everywhere. It does come in a plastic bag so that, in my case, the studs won't get lost and fall out somewhere.. they're all contained in the bag so you can put them back in the container. You get 6 fluorescent colors (purple, fuschia, green, orange, blue, and yellow) in both round and square shaped. These are 2mm and you get approximately 400 studs.
I did some saran wrap nails the other night, and if you follow me on Facebook, I posted a photo of my nails asking for advice! :) I used OPI Don't Touch My Tutu for my base color, and saran wrapped with Sinful Colors Dream On, Sinful Colors Burning Bright, Sinful Colors Boom Boom, and Wet n Wild Stand the Test of Lime. I wore this for a day because I fell asleep before I could stamp! :P The next night, I stamped with Pueen 46 and Sally Hansen Black Patent. I waited a few minutes before top coating, let that dry for a few minutes, then used my top coat (Glossy Glam) and a dotting tool to apply top coat to the circles, then used the dotting tool to add the studs. Waited a few more minutes to make sure the studs were secure and added two coats of top coat to seal them in. My photos are from the next day after doing this and the tip wear is baaad, so please forgive that! I thought the studs were a great way to spruce up a manicure and I usually don't go this bold with my nails :P
*I'm currently on day 3 of wearing these studs and all of them are still in place! Even after working, unloading and loading the dishwasher, doing a couple loads of laundry, putting my son in his car seat several times yesterday, they're still on.. every single one! :D
If you decide to check these out, or purchase anything else from Born Pretty Store, be sure to use my code QUL91 to get 10% of your order! The fluorescent studs are $7.59 USD.
