Whoever said diamonds are girls’ best friend was right. A little sparkle goes a long way and the studded nails look is oh-so-hot right now. Emblazon your digits in sparkly gems in simple patterns for instant roch chick chic.
We are obsessed with Make Up Store’s Strazz ($26.00) – made from gorgeously colourful Swarovski crystal stones that are super easy to apply (just press in gently while nails are still wet with coloured polish then set with your regular clear top coat).
Go for black nails and silver or black stones for a seriously edgy look or pare it back by applying just a few carefully chosen stones to each nail with just a slick of clear polish. Experiment with different colours and patterns, a single gem on a dark nail looks chic as does a complete covering of stones.
As Just Be’s resident intern and beauty road-tester I put Makeup Store’s Strazz to the test on my mani this week, sealing my handiwork with a coat of OPI Rapidry Topcoat ($22.45). (Gosh this is a tough gig!) What do you think JB beauties?
