Today's post is another review: I'm showing you some cute studs from Born Pretty Store!
- What? Small semicircle studs, 1.2mm in size - I *think* I got the rose golden ones (read on for an explanation).
- Price? $1.58 for 20 pieces.
- Where can you find it? Here on Born Pretty Store!
- Extra info: You can pick other colours and other shapes of studs too for the same price: 9 variations of studs in total, as you can see in the picture below (taken from the BPS website):
I had actually asked to review the nr. 7 studs, but there was a mix-up and I got these instead. I emailed Born Pretty Store about it and they were so kind to offer to include the correct studs for review next time. So that's why I'm not sure if these are rose golden (nr 1) or champagne golden (nr 2), but my guess is on rose golden.
I decided to do a cute design with these studs, and used Only You Black Passion, Shimmer Polish Vivian (which I received for review but haven't swatched on her own yet), and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.
Normally I wouldn't use something that I've received for review in another design before actually reviewing the item, but Vivian just matched these studs perfectly and it would have been stupid to not use her as she's so lovely - you'll see Vivian in her own post soon though!
I based my design on these cute daisy nails that Jayna from The Sequined Nail did. I used a dotting tool for the flowers and added the studs in the middle. I sealed it all in with my Fast Drying Top Coat from Only You.
On my thumb and ring finger I added one coat of Vivian on top of Black Passion, plus top coat.
The studs stick out a bit from your nails so I made a picture from this angle to show you. They don't snatch on anything though as they're so small and are perfectly round. The other end of these studs (the part that you glue onto your nails) is flat so they sit perfectly on your nails (unlike micro beads).
All in all, I think these are really cute! The price is a bit steep for small studs like this (especially if you only get 20 pieces), but for the larger variations I think it's a nice price. You can also re-use these studs if you're careful with them. I didn't have any small semicircle studs like this so it's nice to have them.

What do you think of the studs and of my design? Thanks for reading!
