NOTD - 3D Aztec Nails

Well hello there lovely readers! How are you all doing? So I returned back from my trip to NYC last week which was nothing short of amazing. I had the most incredible time out there in the Big Apple & now I've experienced the big city for myself, I can completely understand why everyone loves it! In fact, even though I've always been very much a home girl, I could honestly see myself living out there...& coming from me that's saying something!

Anyhoos holidays end at some point & one must return back to normality I guess which includes getting the blogging mojo back! Today we have a funky Aztec vibe going on with this 3D studded tribal mani I have to share with you beauts.


I adore Aztec patterns, they just scream summer times to me. Instead of doing a free hand design I decided to use some funky studs instead, to create a 3D effect & I loved the result!


For my base colour I used Barry M Matte nail paint in the shade Rhossili, a really lovely raspberry pink shade which dries to a matte finish. I applied two coats for full coverage which applied flawlessly, Barry M formulas are top notch!



Doing one nail at a time, after the second coat of polish had been applied, I grabbed a toothpick & my studs which are from Born Pretty Store, my go to place for bargainous nail art supplies. Psst you can also get an extra 10% off using my code TRUW10 ;)


Here I've used a combo of triangle & round studs. Dipping the toothpick in a little clear polish, I simply picked up the studs & placed on to the still tacky nail in a tribal style pattern.


I liked the matte effect so decided to forgo topcoat however I wanted to rock the tribal nails a bit longer so applied a couple of coats the next day to prolong the wear of the studs.


I hope you liked the 3D Aztec nails! Thanks as always for reading lovelies!

Lotsa love to ya!
