Hello! Geez it’s a bit like long time, no post, hey? Well I have been a little busy. My husband and I are going to Europe for three months at the beginning of October… what I will do with Dry, Dammit! yet is still in question, I’m thinking I’ll update it just once a week with polishes I buy in Europe or other nail polish stuff. I plan on going to WAH Nails when in London. Exciting! So anyway, in preparation for that, we’ve been cleaning the house and essentially doing a giant spring clean – fitting for the first day of spring! Oh, and it’s also our first-year wedding anniversary today. And I didn’t wear any nail polish! I had a design in mind, but we went out to tea last night and I just didn’t have time and then I couldn’t be bothered today. Sorry! But there’s nothing stopping me doing the design I had in mind another time, hey?
Anywho, I wanted to show you tonight some neon 2mm circular studs I bought from eBay. Usually I wouldn’t wear this many studs in one go, but because I was so excited when I got them, I figured I wanted to do something different on every finger. I think my favourite design is the little finger though, I like the cute little flower look. Second favourite is my thumb, I got the design so neat! You need a wax pencil to pick up the studs effectively, which I also got off eBay a little while ago now.
For my nail polish I used two coats of Sinful Colors Be Happy (which strangely is darker on the nail than in the bottle; when I got it out to use I was a bit disappointed it wasn’t as neon as I wanted to match the studs). I did both hands with the same designs, but just mixed it up on each finger.
- Where to buy: eBay, from seller echofairyland
- Cost: AU$4.50
- What you get: About 250-350 pieces
Apparently these studs are also glow in the dark, which I didn’t try out, but next time I will! And I have to say, the wear time on these was great, I wore them for three days including when I cleaned out under the house and they only scratched; they didn’t come off at all. Of course, you need a good top coat though. On my nails I used one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Be wary of bubbles with the studs; on my middle finger in particular you can really see some bubbles. I think the trick is to push the studs into the polish as much as possible so there’s no room for air to get in.
So that’s it from me tonight, I hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for reading!
