As I’m sure you all know by now, I can’t get enough of nail art. I’m always looking for new ideas, techniques, and styles. Admittedly, when there isn’t a holiday or big event going on, sometimes it can be hard to think of new, creative nail art ideas. Enter Nail Art Society. I recently signed up for Nail Art Society, a monthly kit of curated nail art tools. After receiving my first kit, I’m in love. Read on to see how I completely this look – entirely from this month’s Nail Art Society kit!
My nail art kit came with:
- Jessica Custom Nail Colour in Black Matte
- Nail art studs in purple, pink, orange and gold
I started my manicure with my usual filing, buffing, and a coat of Nail Tek II. I then applied two coats of Jessica Custom Nail Colour in Black Matte, which is an amazing deep black matte polish. I had never tried Jessica Custom Nail Colour before, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised! The polish was opaque and my manicure lasted just as long – if not longer – than most other manicures.
I let my manicure dry completely so that I could work with the nail art studs. Taking one stud at a time, I applied a dot of matte polish where I wanted the stud to go and carefully placed each stud one at a time using tweezers.
I finished the manicure – and sealed the studs in – with NYC’s Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat. I absolutely loved the matte look with the shiny studs, so I had to keep the matte look going!
Was it time consuming? Yes. Was it worth it? Definitely. This is one of my favorite manicures to date (do I say that a lot?), and I can’t wait to try nail art studs again soon.
