Gucci Pre Summer/Spring 15 Nail Art + Born Pretty Store Gold/Silver Stud Review

It's finally Summer! My favourite part is the definitely the warm weather. I feel so much happier since it's beautiful and sunny outside. I've been behind on my reviews and nail art for a while, so I finally found the time to do this. I was sent the 1.5mm/2mm Punk Half Round Metal Ball Rhinestones Flatback Nail Art Decoration w/box by Born Pretty Store. To simplify, it is a container with gold and silver stud of varying sizes. I used this to create a nail art inspired by an outfit from Gucci Spring/Summer 2015 Ready to Wear collection. I was drawn by the pastel and the mix of patterns. It also gave me a chance to use my new Essie "bikini so teeny" baby blue polish, that I received from the Essie Canada Station at Luminato. 




The package contains 360 pieces, so you can do a lot of nail art with these. I find that these round studs are very versatile and fun to use. If you have never heard of Born Pretty Store, they are basically a Hong Kong based online retailer that sell everything from cute jewellery, phone cases, to make-up at very inexpensive prices. Once you purchase and review their product, you can earn points to put towards your next purchase. These studs cost $3.28 per container. Once you buy 5, it will drive the cost down to $2.92 and when you buy 10, it will cost $2.89! I've been to retail store that sell these product for $8, so getting it through Born Pretty Store is definitely a bargain! $10-$20 can definitely go a long way on this website. In addition, you can use the discount code NVL91 to save 10% off your purchase. The best part is that it is free shipping world wide! For me, I usually receive my package within 3 weeks, which is pretty standard considering it's overseas.
