Born Pretty Store 4mm Gold Square Studs Review

Hey everyone! Today I will be reviewing Born Pretty Store's 4mm Gold Square Studs. I have never used any kind of studs before, but I was excited to try these out. I re-created a mani that The Nailasaurus did here. I used OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons and then added the stripes in China Glaze High Hopes. To affix the studs, I just applied a small dot of topcoat on the spot in which I wanted to place the stud, used a tweezer to place it, and then just added a thick layer of top coat.



Here's how the studs are packaged. There are a lot of studs in the bag so I won't be running out of these anytime soon!

I really loved using these studs. They're really easy to use and as you can see, you can either use just one or several to create a different look. My only complaint about them is that I have very curved nails and I had a little trouble getting them to lay completely flat on the nail. They still adhere well with the topcoat applied, but I feel like I have to be careful not to let them catch on anything. If your nails are not super curved like mine, you will have no problem with these. Maybe next time I will just apply them straight and see if that helps to make them lay flat on my nail. Something I really liked about them is that they don't dull when you apply topcoat. I sometimes have that issue when I put topcoat over rhinestones, but these still look shiny. 

These studs can be purchased here for $5.84.Visit Born Pretty Store for all of your nail art needs. They have free worldwide shipping on all orders! Use my code "NV7X31" for 7% off your order.
