Look No 1. Studded denim nails
For @californails’ April nail art challenge on Instagram “Match OOTD,” I chose to do a studded denim shirt inspired manicure. I have been searching for a cute denim shirt for the longest time and finally found one I really like at H&M. I think it’s really cute and the light color is perfect for summer! 😀
The design is pretty simple and easy.
I painted a base color with OPI’s Can’t Find my Czechbook and painted another layer of white nail polish over it. After the nails are dry, I used a brush dipped in acetone to gently wash off the white layer to create the dyed denim look. I also added some Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter in the Air to match the dotted tank top I was wearing.
I used silver square studs to match the silver studs on the shirt. Simply place the studs over undried nail polish and seal off with a topcoat.

Look No 2. Black Punk Cross Nail
Here is a nail spine design I did. I wanted something punk rock with black and silver colors and here it is! I used the studs to make a cross as well as nail tapes and glitters. Added a holo glitter as additional accent. I think the look is very simple and classy but somewhat fun with the glitters. 😛
You can find the silver square studs for sale here. The nail set will also be available soon.
Cheers to warmer weather!
