I put more studs on my little nail so you can see the effect better, but I actually only wore them on one nail as an accent.
I decided to team the look with my double finger cross ring from ASOS (here).
Heres what I used to complete the look.
I painted on a base coat and allowed to dry before painting on two coats of Barry M Black nail varnish. Whilst the second coat was still tacky I used tweezers to pick up the studs and place them in a line down the centre of my nail (the studs are a bugger to pick up so I definitely suggest using tweezers instead of your fingers). However, if you put the studs on and the nail varnish has dried too much they will come off easily. If this has happened paint a dab of clear nail varnish under the area that you are about to place the stud and then allow to go tacky. After your line of studs is complete paint over a couple of coats of clear nail varnish to seal them in.
If you want to recreate this look you can get the studs from At Your Finger Tips (here). The site has loads of nail art accessories and you can also get the round gold studs which WAH use quite a lot in their designs. It is the only place I can find that actually sells these square gold studs! If anyone else has seen/heard of anywhere let me know!
They are quite hard wearing and mine didn't come until a few days after and even then it was only one or too studs that fell off. I would also say that try and get the studs as flush to your nail as possible, that way they aren't going to catch on anything and get pulled off.
What do you think?
