Colors by Llarowe and Born Pretty Store Simple Nail Art

Hi guys! Did you miss me in my impromptu week-long absence? I made the terrible mistake of attempting to cut my cuticles last week, so I haven't been able to do ANY nail art or swatching. My cuticles are still ragged and scabby (gross!) but I figured I owed it to myself (and you!) to at least do some simple nail art, and try my best to keep my hands looking relatively nice.

I decided to get back into the swing of things with a super simple look using Colors by Llarowe Liquor is Quicker and these small star studs from Born Pretty Store. I used Essie Mademoiselle as a base for the detail nail, and top coat to hold the studs in place.

Sorry, I don't have too many photos of this look - I really am so self consious about my cuticles! Luckily you can't tell so much due to my strategic photography and watermark placement, haha, but trust me, they are looking quite bad. I have been using cuticle oil every hour for three days now - does anyone else know of a quicker way to soften my cuticles back up? Let me know in the comments!

Here are the polishes I used. You can get this Colors by Llarowe polish here for $6 USD.

The star studs are available here in a set with a variety of different colors, and you can use the code RFL91 at checkout for 10% off your order and free shipping internationally.

Some products provided for review.


  1. These are cute! I always love simple nail art. Hopefully, your cuticles heal up soon!

  2. Cute and Simple! Have u used #blisskiss before? I swear of I have a sore or swollen cuticle, it clears it up in a day or so.-@lacqueredmama

  3. Straight up butter or oil.
