Blue Jeans Mani

*some products in this post were provided to me for review
Recently I received some nail studs for review in the mail from KK Center HK. The studs in question reminded me of the rivets on Blue Jeans, so I set out to create a Denim manicure to show them off.





To create the base look for the denim, I started off with a base of SinfulShine Break Away. I then used my fan brush to create vertical lines on my nails with a combination of Sinful Colors Sugar Rush, SinfulShine Most Sinful, and Break Away. I then painted on some stitching detail with China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (which you can see below) and finished everything off with my Revlon Matte Top Coat. 




As far as the studs go, they are just too big! They are so big, that they are impractical. I can't imagine anyone being able to comfortably wear these on their nails. There is no curve to them, so they stick up on the sides, which you can see in my middle picture. I think the design itself is really cute, I just wish they were about 1/2 the size. The stud on my middle finger didn't last more than one hour before it got caught on something and came off. The one on my thumb was gone this morning when I got up, so it's lost in the sheets somewhere. Sadly, I don't feel I can recommend these, but I did love the other studs they sent for review.

If you would like to see these studs for yourself, click here. Be sure to visit their store here as they have lots of other fun items for sale as well.

What do you think of my denim look? Does it look real?

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

  1. Your manicure *looks* cool, but I totally see what you mean about the size of the studs. While it looks nice, they do seem like they'd be rather impractical!

  3. Did you pick these out or did they just send them? I picked mine and ended up with humungo studs too. Gosh, they're cute but seriously, how could anyone even use them? And shockingly I think these are even a little bigger than mine! Who knew that was possible! Haha. Your nails look nice tho and I like the denim look, just the studs are, like you said, waaayy tooooo biiiggg.

    1. I picked them out. I thought they would be little, apparently I'm horrible at judging sizes.

    1. Yeah, they were just too big. You couldn't do anything with them. No stud should be the size of your entire finger nail.
