Today I have some 3D stud nail art for you again with a Born Pretty Store review. Since I pretty much suck at freehand nail art and I don’t like decals or stickers much then this is pretty much the only thing I can do :D I got these metal skulls (#2) to try out and I had to think for a bit about what to do with them. The obvious thing was to put on black nail polish and stick a skull on one of the nails. I wanted to do something a little more girly though and came up with this design.
The base color is OPI Chic From Ears To Tail. After that was dry I used masking tape to get straight lines on the tips and applied OPI Liquid Sand Emotions. Then I used top coat to attach round studs and the chain on the ring finger. Both of these products can also be found from Born Pretty Store. At last I added the skull. I just used top coat so I could easily remove it and save for later use. If you really want to attach it so that it stays on too you need to use glue.
Skulls are flat and they stick out on the side of the nails. So I recommend these to be used mostly on one night party manicures. If possible you should also wait till the last minute to glue the skull on to your manicure. Otherwise it will be stuck in your hair or clothes while you’re getting ready.
I think this looks great with my nail shape and using pink too made the manicure look a little more feminine but still edgy and pirate-y ;)
