Stud Up! Day 7: Spots or Stripes?

Today is the last day of Stud Up! week and I've had an absolute blast. A theme week was definitely what I needed to bring some inspiration back to my manis.
Today's nails were inspired by racing stripes so I picked a base colour to match my car. Although unfortunately my little Percy Peugeot doesn't have any studded stripes!


I used two coats of Cult Nails Time Traveler for my base colour. One nail at a time, I added a coat of clear polish and placed the bullion using a toothpick with the end dipped in clear polish to make it sticky. I finished off with a coat of NYC In A New York Minute.

  3. That last pic is delicious. And as soon as I saw this in the little thumbnail on my dash, I immediately knew it was Time Traveler - such a perfect TARDIS blue.

  5. Your stud series has been fantasic. Thank you. Although I don't know if I could ever wear any other these cause I'm a fiddler. I'd be running my fingers over the texture all the time and probably get them caught on things too.

  34. Very cool! I saw this mani on this website... http://nailartgallery.nailsmag.com/abigailrichard/photo/287289/black-nails/user

    I think the user has stolen other peoples nail art and posted it. There are a few from you. Some pics have your watermark. Some have other blogs. Just wanted to let you know in case you didn't already.
