Continuing on the stud theme....Round gold studs. I wanted to experiment with them, to see how they lay and how well they stay on at the edge of my nails. Its not too summery, but I like the way it came out. I definitely recommend using a topcoat over the studs. Without it they are very dull. I really wanted my ring finger to look more like armor, but it doesn't. I think I'll try layering them next time.
What I used:
Orly Nail Defense (base)
Zoya in Ziv
Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Blazing Blue
Seche Vite Topcoat
These are one week later...the gold rubbed off of some of the studs. On the upside, I only lost one stud between both hands. Not too shabby!
