My base colour for this manicure is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Ion. I just got it in the mail from the fabulous Amanda and could not wait to use it! Gorgeously greige, fantastic formula, and so beautifully creme-y. I love it!
After Ion and my acrylic paint hearts were dry, I outlined the hearts in these silver studs. With a wet coat of regular OPI Top Coat on my nail (and a few drops on a paper plate), I just barely dipped a toothpick into the top coat and used that to pick up and place the studs. A nice, thick application of China Glaze Fast Forward on top of that, and these easily lasted all day (and probably would have last longer too, but I had some nail homework to do for Tuesday ;p).
These were so much fun to do! The first thing that struck me was how tiny 1.5mm actually is, and even though I probably used a good 50 of them on this manicure, I still have about a jillion left over. You get tons.
