How is everyone doing? Things have finally resumed a semblance of normalcy for me. So I decided to celebrate with some studs. I don't know if it's result of growing up in a ”rough” neighborhood, listening to the Ramones etc., or what, but I love anything studded. If it looks like it would hurt if I smacked you with it, I NEED it, haha. But I digress.
I'm sure you have heard me wax poetic about the China Glaze Summer Neons collection. And how Sun-Kissed may possibly be most PERFECT neon yellow ever. Well I decided to pair Sun-Kissed with Pirate Polish' s Radioactive, a neon yellow and green matte glitter. All I needed was a coat of Sun-Kissed and 2 coats of Radioactive for for this manicure.
While my polish was still wet, I applied some gold studs I purchased at Urban Outfitters. I used a pair of tweezers to set them in place but I'm sure you can use a wet toothpick. Two coats of top coat gave my nails a smooth, glossy look.
And this manicure wore like iron. I was able to wear this for 4 days before seeing any tip wear. Those studs weren't going anywhere. Not bad, eh? Removal did require cotton and tinfoil, but that was to be expected. All in all, I was super happy with how this came out. I only wish I had been able to take more photos.
Have a great day!
