Minty Spring French

I got these really bright and fun colored studs for review from Born Pretty Store and I wanted do somekind of light and springlike manicure with them as the colors were so spring appropriate. I also haven't done a french manicure for a while and it was clearly time to do one, so I have a minty spring french to share with you guys today.

I started this mani with two coats of L'Oreal BB Perfect Pastel Coat, then I did the french tips with two coats of Zoya Neely. After that I dabbed some gold glitter over the polish line and I used I Love Nail Polish All Gold Everything for this. Finally I added two studs for each nail and sealed them with a coat of top coat (Essie Good To Go).

This was a fairly simple look, but I really liked it. Unfortunately my nails look a bit yellow in these pictures, but they didn't look as yellow in real life. Still, I probably need to buff them a bit more next time. Strangely enough, I do have quite few minty polishes, but I didn't have anything that would have been excactly the same color as those studs. All my minty polishes were too blue tones and even Zoya Neely looks blue toned compared to the studs. But it's close enough and it really didn't even need to be exact match.

Here are all the products I used for this manicure: 

I also wanted to say just couple thing about this stud wheel. Like I said, I got this for review from BPS and they have four different color variations from this same wheel (mine is 3#). I chose this one mainly because of those minty ones that I already used in this manicure, but I think the other two colors in this wheel are pretty great too.

There are three different shapes of those studs in the wheel and also two different sizes of that square one, so total of four different kind of ones from each color. The studs are pretty flat, so even I can handle them (I don't like decorations that stick out too much). I really like these kind of colored studs and they are a fun way to decorate your nails. You can use a top coat with these just fine, it doesn't damage the color whatsoever. These are right now on sale at BPS, only $2.59 per wheel. I think I'm going to get myself another one with different colors, I just have to figure out which one!

Don't forget that you can get 10% off with my code MBL91 and BPS offers free worldwide shipping! I don't gain anything if you use my code, but BPS has promised that they will sponsor a giveaway here in my blog if ten people use the code.

Born Pretty Storelta saaduista raikkaan värisistä niiteistä innostuneena päädyin tällä kertaa tekemään yksinkertaisen keväiset ranskikset. Hassua kyllä, vaikka minttuisia lakkoja kokoelmista löytyykin, juuri täysin niittejä vastaavaa sävyä minulta ei löytynyt, sillä kaikki näyttivät niihin verrattuna ennemminkin sinisiltä. Valitsin lopulta kynsien kärkiin sävyksi Zoyan Neelyn, joka nyt oli ehkä kaikista lähinnä tuota niittien sävyä ja varsin kivaltahan tuokin yhdistelmä näytti. Ei haitannut yhtään, vaikka eivät ihan sävy sävyyn olleetkaan!
Neelyn ja L'Oreal BB Perfect Pastel Coatin lisäksi käytin kynsiin myös I Love Nail Polishin kultaista glittertopperia All Gold Evertyhingiä, tietysti niitä BPS:n niittejä ja Essien Good To Go -päällilakkaa. Näistä tuli kyllä varsin simppelit, mutta kivan keväiset eli tykkäsin kyllä.
Näitä niittejä löytyy BPS:stä yhteensä neljää erilaista värisekoitusta ja nämä ovat itse asiassa juuri tällä hetkellä alennuksessa. Taidankin tilata itselleni vielä ainakin toisen setin, kunhan vain osaisin päättää sävyn.
*Niitit on saatu arvioitaviksi.

  4. I recently chose this wheel for review because of the mint studs but haven't received it yet. They look so nice on you! I think I will have the same problem finding a polish in the same color.

    1. This is really a nice wheel of studs, hope you'll get yours soon! And thank you, I'm sure they'll look as nice on you too. :) I'd say they work well with a polish that isn't exactly the same color.
