Born Pretty Store: Gold 5mm Sea Shell Studs

**Products Provided**
Hey guys! Today I have for you another review from Born Pretty StoreThey have tons of affordable nail-art supplies, from brushes, polishes and even studs! I know spring is here, but I couldn't resist trying out these cute seashell studs :D. They are so popular and great for the upcoming summer. 
At first, I had no idea what I wanted to do (which happens to me every time I purchase or has something to review, haha!). But when I saw Astrowifey's Art Deco Pyramid Tutorial, I knew I had a plan. I completely loved how these came out and didn't want to remove them! :(
The studs come in a small plastic resealable bag, containing 20 pieces (which is exactly how much I received). I choose the gold 5mm seashells, but they are also available in 3mm (which are smaller than these). 
As I was brainstorming the colors I wanted to use, I didn't want to go with the common mermaid colors. So when I saw Essie Mint Candy Apple and 70 Crewed Interest together, they looked so beach-y and unique, it was the perfect combination for the Art Deco design! I've even created a tutorial for this specific look! ;D
I began by applying three coats of Essie Waltz. It's a very sheer off white shade, which was perfect for this design. Now to give the illusion of the real seashell I applied a least two coats of Color Club Mini Snow-Flakes.
Once the polishes were completely dry, I added the studs on the nails. Of-course there are many ways to apply a nail charm or studs. Personally, I really don't like the glue, unless I want the charm to last a little longer. However, I prefer the top coat or a gel top coat. 
Lastly, I sealed the design with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall I really loved how these came out! 
The 5mm/3mm seashell studs are $2.78 each and are a great to use for the summer or any design.
