Hi everyone, happy hump day! I'm back again for Day 11 of the #33DC and the prompt for today is 3D. I don't normally do a lot of 3D nails, mostly because I can't stop picking at them when I do. However, since this is a challenge, I decided to go for glittery stud-fest. And why not!
This was a pretty quick and easy mani to do, although it annoys me that the studs could be a bit straighter. In real life though, it's so darn sparkly you would never notice. I used a base coat of PVA glue so removal isn't so hard, then I used 2 coats of A-England - Avalon, and waited for that to dry fully. (I didn't want any bald patches if I had to push the studs around the nail quite a bit) Then I added 1 thick coat of Shimmer Polish - Caroline, and applied the studs immediately. They did need a bit of pushing, but that was partly because I didn't know how many studs would fit on each nail to begin with. 2 coats of top coat to keep them on, and viola!
I did this last night, and I still have all my studs on now, so that's a good sign. These are just so blingy in real life, I like them so much more than I thought I would! I'm also looking forward to what I have planned for Friday if I can pull it off. It's another new one for me, so I will be doing it tonight, just in case I need to try twice! Wish me luck : D
