Favorite Things Challenge - My Favorite Mani

Hi all! The final day of the Favorite Things Challenge has arrived. This has been a lot of fun and I want to thank Kelly at Ooh La La Polish! for dreaming up such a fun challenge! My favorite mani involves studs. I love studs. I love them on clothes, shoes, bags and yes, my nails. One of the earliest posts I did actually featured a studded mani and I have done a neon version of it as well on the blog. I usually do studs with black but I didn't want to repeat myself so I decided to switch up a bit. I recently did a temporary nail polish swap with a good friend of mine. In my bag of goodies was Butter London Blagger which I really wanted to play with and so I used it as the main color for the design.

I started with two coats of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons once that was dry I tape off my nail using scotch tape and painted on Butter London Blagger. I then applied my top coat. While my top coat was still wet I applied the studs. I had a few technical difficulties with this design. My Poshe top coat has decided that it wants to have air bubble which unfortunately made their way onto my nail ( I even added nail polish thinner to minimize this but no dice). I like Poshe but I am really missing my Seche Vite and may be going back to it.
