NOTD | Make My Mint Matte

Born Pretty Store mutli shape stud NOTD (1)

I've been all about matte nails lately. At first it was nothing bu pale, blush shades (like Nicole by OPI Sweet Surrender) but then a bit of pale yellow, and most recently mint. So, when I was deciding what to do with these cute little studs from Born Pretty Store it was obvious it would end up being minty and a bit matte too. Read on for a look!

A pretty simple nail of the day, but I kind of just wanted a scattering of studs. The Born Pretty Store studs are available in a few different shade combos, but I went with #4 which has three shades of green- mint, grass, and an acid-yellow shade. The wheel includes four stud shapes- small circles, smaller squares and larger squares, and oblong leaf shapes. I wasn't really feeling the leaf shapes, so I stuck with the circles and squares. I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint and Julep Hope as an accent nail. I popped on some studs and topped it all off with Nicole by OPI Matte Top Coat. Quick and simple but totally fun and the matte effect gives it a softer feel and look.

What are you wearing on your nails?
