Hello Lovely Ladies,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen a sneak peek of my weekend manicure (I often share my NOTD photos on IG because I’m just too excited to keep it all to myself until the official post goes up, lol).
This manicure is definitely one I’m really happy to share.

I was recently sent these 5mm triangular silver studs from KKCenterHk for review
A package of approximately 50 of these studs retails for $5.29
I used nail-art glue to attach these and would strongly encourage glue over just top-coat to keep these in place. These are on the larger side, which makes me happy, but if you have small nail beds these might be too big for your liking.
As per wearablility, these triangle studs lie straight (they do not have a curve to them like your nail does); as a result the two bottom edges do lift off of the nail a little. I found that placing the studs right ON your cuticle line allows the cuticles themselves to make the ‘lifting’ less noticeable and less prone to catching on something.
I’m not bothered by having studs/gemstones on my nails and didn’t find these cumbersome at all; I did have to be conscious of them not to get the studs to snagg on anything.
I was able to get a day and a half wear out of them before one of the triangle studs lost its battle to a laundry basket ‘ incident’

To create this look I used two coats of OPI Tickle My France-y on all of my nails but for the pinky, which is two coats of SueSa S02.

I personally really enjoy the super metallic, reflective and cold to the touch, look and feel of studs. I am even okay with the little extra care that such studs require during wear- I think the look is worth it (yup, that was my moment of vanity ).
Do you enjoy nail-art accessories on your nails?
Could you see yourself sporting these? (maybe on a special occasion?)
