Review: LadyQueen - Fluorescent Studs*


This wheel is from LadyQueen and contains six different fluorescent coloured studs. Of each colour there are both square studs and round studs. The square studs are 3mm and the round ones are 2mm.

Some nail accessories are overly 3D which makes wearing them a little difficult. These studs aren't huge and don't stick out too much and as such are easy to wear.


In the past I have been known to paint plain silver studs so that they were the colour I wanted, these studs mean I don't have to fiddle about painting tiny squares, waiting for them to dry before applying them. Also they come in fluorescent colours which I don't own in nail polish, so couldn't DIY myself.

To use these I just stick them to my nails while my top coat is still wet, you could use nail glue for a more secure fix. You can use top coat over the top of the studs to seal them in to the nail which will help them to last longer.

Below are some nail designs I have done using the studs, clearly I was feeling the summer when I used these studs!

Nails: Studded Black Texas Tea

Colors By Llarowe, Black Gold Texas Tea is the darkest strong holo polish I have come across. It's hard to get an actual black holo because of the holographic pigment seems to change the colour to a lighter, grey tone.

The flash made the holo reflect like crazy for the photos making it difficult to see the studs;


So I took a photo without the flash:

Review: Square 4mm Studs - Born Pretty Store

I got these for Christmas and thought I would share my thoughts on them. I haven't tried nail art studs before but have used rhinestones. These might work well on denim nail polish too.

Both sets (black and silver) are in 4mm and are square studs, they are hollow and stick to the nail around the edges of the stud rather than the way a traditional flat back rhinestone would.

As much as I like the black studs, they don't obviously show up over black polish. Which is why I was also glad to receive some of the studs in silver, these of course show up really well on black polish.

Inside each pack are around 100 studs and depending on how you remove them they are reusable which is always a good thing!

I wanted to do some nail art using these studs, as I didn't have any in orange to pop over the black polish I just painted a couple of the silver studs with an neon orange polish and that worked really well and was quite effective.
