Nail Art Society - I Love Studs Kit Preview

Discalimer: I am a "Renowned Artist" for Nail Art Society. I have provided my affiliate link in this post. 

Hello everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far. This is going to be a very quick post as it's a sneak peek of the next Nail Art Society (NAS) kit. NAS is now naming their kits based on it's theme instead of calling them by the month they are released. This month's theme is studs so it is called, "I <3 Studs." 

As a "renowned artist" for NAS, I was given the kit early so I could get a look ready for today. All of the renowned artists for NAS are posting their looks today (or as soon as possible) for you to see! We are really excited about this kit and have a lot of cute design ideas for what you can do with it.

This is what I did!

Half Moon Manicures
I love the versatility of the half moon mani. The options are endless from turning the moons into actual moons to something more simple like my design. 

Before I tell you how I did this design, let's talk about the sneak peek. In the I <3 Studs kit, you will get a bottle of Jessica Cosmetics Black Matte (shown on my accent nail) and an assortment of circular studs (all colors shown). Wait until you see what the other girls have done with this kit. They're amazing. 

 I started with a base coat (Cult Nails Get It On) and then put on three coats of Essie Mademoiselle. I finished off that step with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast Top Coat. I watched a couple reruns of Say Yes to the Dress to make sure my top coat was completely dry all the way through. When certain my mani was safe and dry, I placed a paper hole reinforcement on the bottom of my nail. Above the paper hole reinforcement I painted my nails Jessica Cosmetics Black Matte. I then quickly removed the paper hole reinforcements and quickly placed my stud before the polish dried. I did this one nail at a time to ensure I'd have enough time to place my stud before the polish dried. I sealed in all of my nails except for my accent nail with Cult Nails Wicked Fast Top Coat. That's it! 

If you'd like to subscribe in time for this kit, the deadline is October 15. Kits are $11.95 a month plus shipping and handling. You can sign up for NAS, here (my affiliate link). I do not get compensated if you sign up. If you'd rather not go through my link, you can always sign up on their website
