Today I have rustled up a little DIY for you that is super easy when you have all the right tools and a steady hand! Studded nails are an simple way to jazz up a plain polish that can be applied on all nails or simply to your ring finger for a hint of detail. I came up with 5 easy designs all from the one studded nail art wheel but there are millions of variations that you could come up with.  

All you'll need for this DIY is a base coat of your choice, a clear topcoat, some nail studs and a pair of tweezers. As you can see I picked Models Own Black Magic and Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat , I chose to use black simply as it is a great canvas and contrasts with the gold and silver studs. As for Seche Vite it is literally the best topcoat and leaves your nails with salon quality shine and dry's in half the time of your standard varnish. You can purchase this exact nail art wheel from Missguided for £3.99 or you can purchase specific studs from via eBay sellers such as this. The wheel also includes pearls and gems if you're not into the studded trend but I'll save that for another day! To achieve this look simply apply a base coat and leave to dry. Once dry add a generous coating of topcoat and then simply pick up your tweezers, select your studs and just pop them on in the design of your choice. Once finished seal with another topcoat and you are done! 

I personally love the crosses but i'm still a 14 year old goth at heart so that was to be expected. 
Which is your favourite and do you think you'll be trying out this for yourselves?
