DIY Nail Art Guide: Studded Nails!

Studs have been huge news on the catwalks and high street this year, adding the edge factor to clothing and accessories alike! Now you can get the look on your nails by using tiny nail art studs, which look amazing and are much cheaper way to get the look than investing in a studded biker (although we might have to make an exception for Topshop\'s amazing \'heartbreaker\' jacket!)

We bought a wheel of 1200 different coloured metal studs on eBay for just £3.99! You will need tweezers to place them onto the nails.

Usually we\'d advise you to use a fast drying topcoat, but for the purpose of this project, it helps to use a longer drying topcoat. Do a coat of clear topcoat , this will act as \'glue\', and then begin stick your studs onto the nail with tweezers.
