Nail art studs are a simple way to add some rock star glam to your nails! The metal studs add a fun 3D element to any nail art design. A studded nail design can be used as an accent for another nail design, or it can be the star of the show!
It’s also quite easy to create a studded nail design. You can place the studs in wet nail polish to adhere them to the nail. When the nail polish dries, the studs will be embedded into the design. Some people, though, prefer to use nail glue to adhere studs to the nails. Nail glue can provide a stronger bond, which means the studs are less likely to fall off.
