Born Pretty Store 2mm Small Square Studs!

Hi everyone and happy Saturday AND Happy December!  I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Mine should be eventful...lots of holiday events including my work open house and holiday party and the city tree lighting!  The season is upon us!  Today I have a fun nail art supply review for you from Born Pretty Store!  Today I am showing you the Born Pretty Store 2mm Square Studs!  I always shy away from 3D nail art, feeling that it's just not really my thing, so today's manicure definitely falls under Not My Style Saturday!  I think 3D can be awesome, but I just prefer my manicures to be smooth, but I still wanted to try this out!


When you get your studs in the mail, they come in a nice resealable baggie that provides for easy storage.  I was surprised by just how many studs come in the set...LOTS!  For $5.73, it's definitely more studs than I will use in a long time!  I decided to use the studs as accent pieces on a fun holographic manicure with a holiday twist, so this manicure is also part of my Holiday Nail Art Series.


I started off with a manicure in BB Couture Under the Mistletoe.  I waited until it was completely dry so I wouldn't smudge it while applying the studs.  I applied a thick layer of top coat (I used NYC here) and then used a set of tweezers to place the studs where I wanted them!  Easier than I expected!  I didn't for these pictures, but you should probably seal the studs in with top coat.  On my accent nail I did a triangle shape...an abstract Christmas tree!!  I'm pretty sure that if I wore this manicure long term, I would want to pick the studs off, but I think that the look is awesome!  Definitely an easy way to spice up an old manicure or add something a little special.



Born Pretty Store 2mm square studs are listed on the website as "1 bag 2mm silver square stud rhinestone Acrylic UV Gel Nail art" and can be found [HERE].  One bag retails for $5.73 and Born Pretty Store always offers free international shipping!  Born Pretty Store really is everyone's one-stop-nail-art-shop!  Don't forget you can use my code RUL91 to get 10% off your purchase!

  2. You can tell I'm a real geek, because my very first thought was "KLINGON NAIL POLISH!" & then I thought, "Or, Japanese lamellar armor...."
