Sister #2 here, all of my posts will be in blue. You can probably already tell us apart by our different hands :)
This week I decided I wanted to incorporate silver studs in my mani. These studs can be found on most nail art websites for pretty cheap. Here is what I came up with:
It took some time and patience but the end result was way worth it. I started by painting the entire nail with two coats of Cheers by Revlon, it's a peachy pink that works for any season. After I let that dry I used nail tape to form the line in the middle. When you're using nail tape it's best to do it one nail at a time, at least for me. I painted between the tape with Smokin Hot by Essie, a purplish grey color.
Then I used an orangewood stick to place 3 of the silver studs along each line. They stick really well even if the polish has dried. Finish off with some top coat and voila! It's a fun mani that has been getting a lot of attention so far. I see a lot more studs in my future and who doesn't love a good stud?
