Golden Star Nail Designs

Hola!

We’ve been having alot of fun with different types of nail studs recently. One of my favorite is the gold star studs! I think the stars are super cute and very easy to design with.

Look 1: Dreamy Beach Nails

First I have for you is a beach mani. I wasn’t planning on making sand or ocean themed nails when I did the base gradient. But hey, good accident happens, right? I applied Deborah Lippmann’s Stairway to Heaven after the ombre colors are dry, and then I placed the beads and stars before the glitters become completely dry. After the glitters are dry, I added 2 layers of Seche Vite top coat. The studs are pretty secured in place and won’t come off unless I purposely pick on them.

I have to say I really love this look! It’s very fresh and cute for spring and even more perfect for summer. I can’t wait to go to the beach when the weather is warmer. 😀

Look 2: Simple Shiny Stars Mani

This is what happens when you are busy and have limited time to paint nails. It’s clean and light. I like how the stars make the look more fun and they go pretty well with OPI’s Goldeneye. We’re also loving OPI’s My Vampire is Buff! It’s such a nice color to wear on its own, to use as a canvas pallet, or even to make ombres.

So which look do you prefer? 😀 

I still want to try other looks with the stars. It’ll be interesting to play with the silver stars, too. A wonder woman theme maybe? haha.
