Born Pretty Spikes

We all know that I have a penchant for studs. Whether it's clothes, nails or shoes - if it's got studs on, I'll be there drooling all over it. The next logical step is spikes and Born Pretty have started stocking nail sized ones! They're available in gold and silver and come in packs of 10 for $0.99 or 100 for £7.99.

I used clear nail polish to attach these to my nail. I just used a nail art brush to dab a spot on where I wanted them and stuck them on. I tried using tweezers but with all those smooth, glossy, rounded surfaces there was no hope of getting a good hold so I just used my fingers.



My base colours are A-England Lancelot and Sally Hansen Green Tea. I top coated it all with a coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri before quickly applying Born Pretty's 2mm square studs to create the little cross on my index finger. The spikes* are also from Born Pretty here.

  8. I can picture the spike studs on the runway or for editorial photos but I don't think they are very practical! With that said it's still pretty cool.

  12. I like them, I'd use nail art glue to attach them though. With regular polish I'm afraid that a hint of wind would knock them off! ;)

  13. I love the index finger! And the spikes are great but in theory would not last on me! Love the mani though <3

  14. I'm also in love with anything spiked or studded, haha. I need to order those spikes, they're amazing. I wish I could have had them for New Years, my blouse was black with gold spikes on the shoulders and neck.

  21. I was excited enough to see spikes, but then the studded cross and beaded nail pix come into focus, and next thing you know....I'm a goner.

    Absolutely sick! And that's meant in the most complimentary way! :)
