Nail Art featuring KKCenterHK

I have something a little different to show you today! I have never used any kind of jewels, studs, embellishments etc. for nail art purposes, partly because I've been too scared to try and partly because I didn't think I had the imagination to create a decent design!

However, I was contacted by KKCenterHK recently and asked to review some products, so I have the first of those today.

I have used these small, pretty pink studs, item number NNAIL-DRN665:

They arrived in a little zip lock plastic bag which contained roughly 50 studs. I didn't decide on a design until the very last minute, and I ended up being really quite pleased with my first attempt! I tipped the studs out onto a plate, made sure they were all facing the right way up before I stared, and then, while my polish (Nails Inc "Fitzrovia") was still wet, I picked a stud up with a toothpick which I had moistened and then placed it onto my nail. I continued this process until I had finished all nails. These pictures are without top coat.

For the purpose of this review, I did not use glue or top coat, but if you want your manicure to last longer then I might recommend either one (or both) of those, to ensure your studs don't fall off.

I am really pleased with these studs. They are small and delicate and I can see them being very versatile - I'm certainly glad I have finally dipped my toe into the waters of embellished nails!

Thanks for reading, and come back again soon :) x

    1. Thank you! I decided to go for a fairly simple design as a) it was my first attempt; and b) I have narrow nails and didn't want to crowd them - I am quite pleased with the result :) xx

  2. Love this! I think I have these studs but have never known how I want to use them. This is a great idea. :)

    1. Thank you very much Katherine! :) xx
