DIY Half Moon Nails with Studs

Friday, 22 February 2013

Here's a nail tutorial which is pretty self explanatory - just follow the images! I'm using Essie polishes in the shades, 'Neo Whimsical' and 'Master Plan'. The little nail studs I bought on eBay from this seller here. You can buy ring binder stickers from any stationary store or on eBay. They are really useful for all types of nail art! You can also use gems or rhinestones if you'd prefer and this nail design looks great with any two colours...

*Top Tips* 
Wait until nails are COMPLETELY dry before applying the stickers and again, wait until the next colour is set before removing the stickers. You don't want to pull of your nail polish and ruin your manicure.
I applied Seche Vite top coat, popped on a stud and when it was dry I did another thin layer or top coat to seal in the stud. I've now had mine on for 2 days without any chips or any studs falling off.
