Review: Born Pretty Silver Square Nail Studs

I want to kick things off with a reminder that if you haven't entered my Born Pretty giveaway yet, today is the last day! Up for grabs is a $20 voucher for Born Pretty Store to use on whatever your polish-loving heart desires. :)

So what better way to mark the last day of the giveaway than by checking out some nail studs from Born Pretty? They have a seriously impressive variety of nail studs in all different shapes and sizes. I decided to try out some 5 mm silver square studs.

The studs are thin but still feel nice and sturdy. I didn't have to worry about bending or breaking them at all when I was playing around with them. $3.99 gets you one bag of approximately 50 studs.

I recently came across this Youtube tutorial from OPI for the Gwen Stefani Collection (you can check out the video HERE) and I thought this would be a fun look to try and recreate with my Gwen OPIs and these studs.

I wore this mani for a little over two days and the studs stayed perfectly in place for the duration of the manicure and they they can also be re-used, if you want. As for the mani itself, I started with a base of OPI I Sing In Color, then did a stripe of OPI In True Stefani Fashion down the center of my nail. While In True Stefani Fashion was still wet, I used tweezers to place the studs, then sealed everything up with two coats of Deborah Lippmann Addicted To Speed Top Coat. My striping skills aren't the best, but hopefully this mani at least gave you some idea of how you can incorporate these studs into nail art ideas. :)

If you would like to order anything from Born Pretty, they offer 10% off for Nailed readers:
