Born Pretty Store Gold & Coloured Studs, with Barry M Cocoa

So after a morning tidying up my nail desk (see post here!) I finally got round to actually painting my nails! It's been almost a week since I did anything worth posting.  Today I wanted to finally get round to trying more of the Barry M Autumn Gelly colours, so I started with Cocoa.  Cocoa is a gorgeous, dark, chocolately brown. This is two coats.  

The formula is great - opaque, smooth, even and glossy. Really lovely. I decided to pair this with some really lovely studs I have been sent for review from Born Pretty Store.

Just look at them! Aren't they fab? There are circles and squares of various colours. There's a gold coloured base, and then a super shiny, glowy coloured centre. I decided just to stick with one colour for this look, and used the orangey brown ones. 

I love how this looks! The contrast between the gold metal border and the coloured middle looks so fancy! I really like the bullseye effect.

The studs themselves are light, and stick down very easily with topcoat. 

These studs are on the Born Pretty Store website as item no 15332, and cost $5.32 for the whole set. I really like them, and can think of loads of looks I want to try out. 

You can also get 10% off this price using my AKJ61 discount code at the till.

  1. I'm not really a brown person but this actually looks okay with the studs - they are a really nice addition :-D

    1. They definitely jazz it up a bit, don't they? I can understand people not liking brown (although I really do) but I think the studs make it look quite elegant.

    1. Thank you! It's lovely isn't it? Really rich and velvety.

  3. Ooo lovely colour! I don't have this one yet, I bought the Paprika and Mustard ones which are great too! Love the choice of studs, they look fab against the brown xx

    1. Thank you! I love Paprika and Mustard too - I'm loving this collection so far!
