Review and Nail Art: Born Pretty Store Seashell Studs

Hi everyone!

Today I have another Born Pretty Store product to share with you – seashell studs! This product was sent to me for my unbiased review. I created some beachy nail art with them.

Painted Fingertips | Seashell nails with shell studs from the Born Pretty StoreAren’t they cute? For this look, I started with a base of the Vixen Nail Lacquer I am holding. It doesn’t have a name but it is a lovely blue-green base filled with gold sparkles – quite similar to Sinful Colors Kissy. I used plate QA62 to stamp with penguin with Sinful Colors Snow Me White on my ring finger. I used a sponge to create a gradient using Tribal Colours #11 and LA girl Sands of Time on my other nails and dabbed some on around the penguin too. Painted Fingertips | Seashell nails with shell studs from the Born Pretty StoreI used a small dot of top coat to stick on each shell stud – I didn’t topcoat over the whole nail as I wanted to keep the sandy texture of the textured polishes. I really liked these studs, the shell shape is very cute. They came in a bag with about 20 studs. As you can see, they are quite small, which works well if you want several on a nail like here or just don’t like anything too huge on your nails. There is a larger size available (these are the 3 mm ones, 5 mm ones are also available), and you can get them in silver too.

    It’s very pretty! You did a very good job making it look like a beach. Using gold and the pretty shells makes it look very classy
