time for a HOT mani - featuring studs from Born Pretty

Hey guys! Pretty much I am the worst blogger ever this week, because I am busy being a good employee at my new job!
I've been super super busy but it's gonna slow down after tomorrow and I can get back to my regular flow. Good thing, too, because I might soon die of exhaustion! Opening new stores is hard work. But I love my new job and my coworkers. So life is good!

Tonight I'm going to show you a mani that is freakin' hot!

I recently received some new items from Born Pretty to review so you'll be seeing those over the next little while.

The first thing I tried out are these awesome studs!

Sexy! I'm a sucker for anything studded so I adore these nail studs.

These are the 4mm gold square studs from Born Pretty which you can buy right here.

They came in a nice resealable bag:

There are so many things you can do with these studs, I had a hard time deciding what to try first!

I got so many compliments on this mani, the studs are really eye-catching and fun to wear. They give your nails that extra somethin' somethin'!

The base color is China Glaze - Love's A Beach from the Summer Neons Collection. I'll have a full review of these polishes when I get the second half in the mail, but let me just say now that this one is amazing!
I love the shimmer and the formula is fantastic. 2 easy coats. As usual for neons it dries matte but comes alive with topcoat.
My ring finger is Milani Jewel FX - Gold.

I applied my studs into a coat of wet Seche Vite and then I added another coat on top.
I wore this for 2 days before losing a stud - and that was only because I was unpacking dozens of boxes at work! I could likely get these to last 4-5 days under normal circumstances.
Despite being kinda big, I didn't find they stuck out much at all once covered in a thick coat of Seche Vite.
The one on my pinky nail was more stuck out because the nail is so much smaller but that's to be expected.

Overall I totally love these studs and I can't wait to use them in a bunch more manis!
