Born Pretty Store Studs and Nails Inc Leather Effect Nails

So when I went to my local Sephora this weekend and I saw that Nails Inc sells their Leather Effects polishes in several different colors now! I picked up a pale blue called Dalston and decided to make some nail art and pair it with these circular studs I got from Born Pretty Store to review.

Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like studs so I had to take photos with my phone!

The leather effect polish is so cool! I found that it does not work if you use base coat, and of course, if you want the effect to be textured like leather, you can't use top coat either. Shown is two thin coats on each nail. Originally, the leather polishes were available in kits with studs for $25, but you can get the polish alone in any color for $11.

My ring finger started with a couple coats of black, and then I taped it off to add a stripe of Nails Inc Dalston and topped it with some studs.

Anyway, the studs are super cute and easy to manuver and you can buy them HERE. They're also really cheap, and you can use the discount code RFL91 at checkout for an additional 10% off and free shipping internationally.

Did anyone else pick up some leather polish? What did you think?


  1. I'm loving these leather effects! And this color is gorgeous <3

  2. Really like the mani, like the studs even more.
    Leather effect is cool, Barry M are doing something similar with their station road colour, but it reminded me of sand, so I'm using it for beach designs :)
