Happy Friday! Posting will probably be a little sporadic over the next few weeks as I finish everything up for the year, fair warning. You probably know that I love studs on my nails, so when I was offered the chance to review a product from KKCenterHK, I jumped at the chance to try some of their awesome nail studs! :)
These studs came in a package of about 50; it's not very many compared to other packages of studs I've got, but if you remove them carefully you can reuse them, (hence why some of mine look a bit scratched up.)
This was actually the second time I wore these studs, the photos from the first time turned out horribly. This time, I chose to wear them over one coat (yes, only one!) of OPI Honey Ryder. Because it was a textured polish and top coating over the studs would have ruined the finish of the polish, I used nail glue to attach the studs and left them sans top coat.
They actually lasted an entire day, much to my surprise! The first time I wore them, they were attached with top coat and covered in two coats of Seche Vite, and those lasted almost two days before I took them off!
These studs come flat, and the edges would poke up a lot on my curved nail beds. To solve this issue and prolong wear time, I simply curved each one over the handle of a nail art brush to fit the curve of my nail prior to applying. No pokey edges here! :)
This product can be found on the KKCenterHK website here: Studs Regular Triangle Silver 5mm Nail Art Decorations. These studs retail for $5.28USD per package, but you can use the code "globeandnail" to get 10% off your order! (Expires Jan.21st, 2014.)
