Born Pretty Review: Neon Studs over Neon Color Block Texture Nail Art

Press Sample

My next review from www.bornprettystore.com are these awesome neon fluorescent nail art studs that I used for an extremely bright and fun manicure. Born Pretty is a great site for all your nail art needs and other items (they also have adorable phone cases and other accessories!). Normally you see studs placement at the cuticle, but I decided to try out some color blocking.  Make sure you read through the post to grab the coupon code at the bottom of the post!

Using a variety of neon textures to make the studs, I color blocked my nails with the polish brush. After two coats of each color, I dabbed a little bit of top coat in the center, and using a dotting tool, I picked up each stud and placed it. Once this is done, you could top coat the stud, but I wanted to keep the texture polish as is. I suggest using a quick dry top coat to secure the studs. I found they last longer on my nails that way (vs. the ones I used a normal drying top coat).

This manicure is SO loud, but it is awesome.  I used Red Dog Designs Neon Sands for the green, pink, purple, and blue. OPI You're So Flippy Floppy (yellow) and Julie G Tangerine Dream (orange) for this look.

You can find the candy fluorescent  studs and other nail art supplies here or http://www.bornprettystore.com/350pcs-candy-fluorescent-light-color-round-square-stud-rhinestones-nail-decoration-wbox-p-7276.html.  They are $7.59 for 350 and I don't see myself ever running out!
