Dressed Up in Studs

 Hello from Vegas. I'm here this week for work, but I couldn't resist getting a good post in. I thought about painting a tiny Vegas strip on my nails but somehow that seemed kinda like wearing a band's t-shirt to their own concert so I went with the next obvious choice... studs! These also match the dress I'll be wearing tonight (yeah, check out the cheesy title) so I'm excited about that. 

I started with two coats of each polish. The black nails are LA Colors, Black Velvet. The grey is Nina Ultra Pro, Ink-ling (loving this shade) and the green is Sally Hansen, Limestone. I used scotch tape to tape off sections on my middle and pinkie fingers and painted some color blocks. I added the studs in two sizes from Born Pretty by painting a section of clear polish and pressing them down firmly. I topped it off with two coats of clear polish to seal the edges and keep them from catching and popping off.

I didn't get this posted quite as early as I'd hoped (silly work meetings) but that means I can show you a picture of the dress. Behold the matchy-ness. Well, aside from everything looking blue- this was taken right outside the Blue Man Group show which we all got to see for free thanks to the company.
