Simply Studded: Simple Nail Art

This is "that" mani which got scraped last time.
Such a pretty shade! Its OPI's Funky Dunkey from the Forever Shrek collection.
I love it even more when matt-ified. Mental note to self: use this polish more oten.

I had these studs with me form the born pretty store. Thought they would make a simple and sophisticated nail art look.  These are 1.5mm in dia. Here's a link for them---> Link  
They are really cool and simple to apply. Just dot a clear top coat using a tooth pick and stick them. 
Look at the quantity they send! I dont think I'll run out of these in this lifetime! 
I really liked using them and might probably get the other varieties they have in these studs..square, elliptic, hearts and neons too! they also have this box of mix shaped ones (link)
Stayed on my nails for 2 days, would have lasted a day more but I kept picking on my nails.
They sell for $5.86/bag but you get 10% discount if you use code KJ5X31

*Born pretty studs were sent for review but the opinion is an honest one.

Neon Splash

Some days no matter how hard you try..painting nails and making a blog post is just not on the cards.
The other day I painted my nails a lovely purple and thot I'd try my hand at a stamping mani next day once my lil bub goes for an afternoon nap. But the mani had other ruin itself. by night the thumb was morning the pointer went down and by noon the ring  finger nail got scraped too! 
So instead of doing a mani I got bugged and removed the whole thing and stubborn as I am I will put the same shade again and turn it pretty.

Till that happens enjoy this splash of neon bug that has got to me.
All I see is neon everywhere so much that its now starting to put me off! Every shop, indian/western, tv channels all have people sporting neon. So I just had to do a mani and get it out of my system. haha.
