Review: BPS Silver Spike Studs!

Hey everyone! I have another review today, again from Born Pretty Store. These were done on fake, press on nails, so I apologize if they look a little off in the pics.

I loved spikes and studs. Love 'em. Then again I'm perpetually stuck in some weird punk/goth phase, and have been since I was 15, so..

For this mani, I used the Silver Spike Studs from BPS. You get a lot of them, and they're itty bitty, which is very nice. I attached them using nail glue, no topcoat, and damn, they look pretty badass, yeah? Now, these were just for photos, so they're pretty impractical.. some of the spikes fell off when I removed the nails. If you REALLY want these suckers to stick, I suggest nail glue+topcoat, or nail glue+gel topcoat, and try not to use a lot of the spikes, just a few for accents. Again, spikes aren't very practical as they're prone to catch on things, but they look damn cool. I wouldn't suggest using them for a mani you want to last the week.. these are for a more temporary mani, as in a day or two, for a special event. I'd personally use these for a mani for an event like a concert, or going to a club, or something fun like that. I think these would be fun to experiment with for other make-up applications as well.. they'd likely be easy to attach to skin with eyelash glue or spirit gum. All in all, these are very neat little studs!

Used for this mani:
BPS Silver Spike Studs, silver beads, craft store rhinestones, China Glaze Don't Honk Your Thorn, black acrylic paint

Once again, BPS was kind enough to give me a discount for my followers to use!

Thanks for looking, as always. :3
