I received some new nail art items from Born Pretty Store so I was excited to use them. I wanted to use the bow studs first since you all know, those are like my favorite to wear especially as an accent nail on a plain manicure. Let's see what I did with them.
I created the half moon shape using french tip guides from Born Pretty Store. I painted the bottom with Jessica Tangerine Dreamz and immediately peeled off the guides. Cleaned up the curves with a small clean up brush and nail polish remover. I applied a bow stud from Born Pretty Store on my ring. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off. Finished with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat.
Here's a closer look at the bow studs from Born Pretty Store. They cost $5.99 for a set of 10 of them. You can use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off. Unlike the previous bow studs I've tried, these fit my nails better and don't stick out as much. They were easy to apply and I like that I can reuse them multiple times. The bow studs are also pretty sparkly in real life when the lights shines on it.
This was my first try at a negative space manicure and I think they turned out alright. I should have went a little higher up on the nails so that the negative space was more subtle instead of stopping about halfway here. What do you think?
