Studs and Glitter

Good morning everyone!  I have a mani for you today that I am pretty much in love with!  I have been trying to wrack my brain to come up with some nail art ideas, and when I painted my nails with Julep Blake on Saturday, this came to me!  Come check it out!

I started with 3 coats of Julep Blake.  When that was completely dry, I used some striping tape to tape off half of my nail, and then applied Revlon Graffiti glitter top coat to the right half.  Then, when I applied the top coat over that, I applied the 2mm Square Studs I got from Born Pretty Store for review.  I first tried the dotting-tool-in-water to try to apply the studs, but that wasn't working for me (see the wonkiness of the studs on the index nail??).  So I wrapped a piece of scotch tape around one end of my dotting tool, sticky side out, to pick up the studs and that worked much better :)

Have you ever had a mani come to mind when you put your base colour on?


  1. I love this look!! I may have to recreate it even though I don't have any studs...

    1. Thanks!! Dots with silver (or any colour) polish would work just as well :D Can't wait to see it when you recreate it :D

  2. I adore this! I think I am going to have to recreate it as well - excellent!!

  3. Thank you! Please share it with me if you do recreate it, I'd love to see it!
