Please don't forget to enter NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Giveaway. It ends September 19, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. PST (Pacific time).

I am fortunate to work with Born Pretty Store.

Here are the items I choose. I already reviewed Born Pretty Line Flower Water Decal (top right) and Born Pretty Chameleon Nail Polish in Violet Galaxy (top left). For this post, I will review the nail studs on the top middle.
This is Born Pretty 30 Pieces Triangle Nail Studs Fashion Dots Pattern. Since I did a thorough review of Born Pretty Heart 3D Nail Studs, I will base this on that. It retails for $1.49 and it's described as...

Material: Alloy
Quantity: 30 Pcs
Size: Round: 2 mm/3 mm
Square: 2.5 mm/ 3.5 mm
Triangle: 3 mm
Pattern: 5 patterns available

Package Contents:
30 Pcs

Nail decoration
Easy to apply on natural or artificial nails
Clean the surface of your nails, brush the base polish, and place it onto nails

You can also use them to decorate your home, cell phone's case, glasses, made card, body art, etc."
Thoughts: I haven't done studs in awhile. The reason why I haven't done nail studs is because I got into water decals. They're just so easy and there's nothing sticking out of the nails. Then I saw this stud on the website and knew I had to get back into it.
Here's a closer look at one of the nail studs.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original and Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat on all my nails. On my thumb, index, and pinkie fingers, I applied three coats of Priti NYC in Swan River Daisy. On my middle and ring fingers, I applied two coats of Love & Beauty By Forever 21 (there's no name of the color). Then topped off with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat on all the nails. On my middle and ring fingers, I added Born Pretty Triangle Nail Studs with nail glue.
Here's a closer look at the nail studs at a different angle.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love that the studs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. You have a choice of square, round, and triangle. I believe the square and round comes in two different sizes. Honestly, it took me some time to figure out which shape I wanted. They're all so cute. The dots on the tiny studs were what sold me. They're so detailed for such a tiny thing. I like that the studs level/height isn't big. It doesn't stick out of the nails as much as others. For that reason, I wanted to try this. Secondly, they're easy to apply. From the description, they recommend applying top coat on top of the nail studs. I actually did it a little different. I used a nail glue. I dipped the back of the studs onto the nail glue and applied it where I wanted on my nails. It was that easy and using the right tool makes a difference. I will review the tool I used next week and I highly recommend it! With that said, the reason why I use nail glue is because it lasts longer than a top coat or at least it does on me. When I use top coat, the studs only last couple of days since I'm so harsh with my hands. Also, I'm constantly washing my hands. With nail glue, it holds the studs until I remove with a nail polish remover. Third, the dots on the nail studs make it so modernized. It makes any nail polish hip. It's great for all ages and styles. Not only that, it's versatile. They recommend you can use it on other things other than nails. I haven't tried it so I cannot say much about it. Lastly, it lasted until I removed the polish. There were no scratches and marks on the studs. It looked brand new like the day I applied it. After this nail stud, I might be back at it. I love how comfortable it felt and it didn't feel like I was wearing any!

Would repurchase: Yes!
