Review: Gold Studs from the Born Pretty Store

Saturday, July 25, 2015


It's been ages since I last posted! I've been at Governor's School for the past five and a half weeks, and I wasn't about to tote all my nail art supplies across several cities and up three flights of stairs. But I'm back now and even though I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain a regular posting schedule, I'll take what I can get :)

A representative from the Born Pretty Store recently (or, not so recently -- oops) contacted me and asked me to review a product for them, and I chose the gold triangle studs!

Polishes Used:
Essie Blanc | Wet n Wild Black Créme

I decided to do a sort of tribal print design thing with them. I used a thin brush to paint the lines and placed the studs with a pair of curved tweezers. Before top coat, it looked great!
Unfortunately, the top coat bubbled and the gold color of the studs smeared when I added my cheap 99-cent NY Colors clear coat. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the studs, or with my clear coat.

Overall, I liked the studs. The only reservation I have is that the gold color smeared. They were exactly what I expected, and for $1.27 for an entire pot of studs it's very cost-effective!

I hope I'll be able to post more regularly, and even if I can't I'll definitely check out y'all's blogs!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Bummer they smeared, love the pattern that you created with them though!

  2. These look awesome! I got to review these too but I chose silver :)

    1. Thank you! I was almost going to get silver!


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
