Review: Born Pretty Store - Round Polka Dot Studs 2mm*

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-BornPrettyStore-BPS-Round-Polka-Dot-Nail-Studs-Fashion Dots Pattern-Decoration

In this pack there are 30 2mm round polka dot studs, there are other shape (square, triangle) and sized  (2mm, 3.5mm) ones on the website as well. 

I like the idea of these because the design is too small to do by hand on to a stud. For all of the nails I used monochrome polishes as I thought it went with the colours of the studs. 

The first way I used these studs was as a simple cuticle accent.

The second way I used them in a polka dot design as an accent nail.

And finally I used it along with some chevron tape to create a monochrome accent.

Stamping Plate: MoYou - 101

Recently MoYou have really started to re-brand. I have used the brand before and have purchased plates from them before, you can see those reviews herehere and here. This plate was sent for reviewing purposes, which won't effect my opinion.


As you can see the plates come in a cellophane package and have a blue plastic layer to protect the plate in transit. The plates are fully backed as well with the website address, this is useful as it also means no sharp edges.


 Below is the images stamped on to white paper. They all stamped well other than the eyes on the left of the photo, this seems to be a problem with me not being quick enough at stamping though rather than a problem with the plate. These are quirky designs and something different from the floral and filigree patterns typically found on plates.


On to the nails which I have done using MoYou 101:

Green Eye Gradient

Owl Nails

Evil Eyes

MoYou 101 retails at £4.99

Monkey See Monkey Do: Cherries

I saw these nails on Crumpet's Nail Tarts done by JustJade Bar. While I like these nails the original are far better, and I will be trying again to get them right. I thought I'd use a holographic base, shouldn't have tried being clever. Original nails can be seen here.

Base Polish: A England - Bridal Veil
