If you missed it, I had a post go live earlier today. Click HERE to see my review of February's Beauty Box 5!
But now, for my #NailArtForNubs! Today's look was inspired by Raggio di Luna dots and square studs nail art. She does some of the most creative nail art, and I really love her style.
I started off with Paula Dorf Stormy, a light grey creme. I picked up a few Paula Dorf polishes in a blog sale, and I've loved each one so far! Great formula.
On top, for a little sparkle, I layered NailNation 3000 Dancing In The Sky, a light grey holo. I love how it adds a slight blue tinge.
I had some trouble lining up the dots in the center. I tried to put a marker in the center (like on my thumb) with Julep Josephine, and then build the diamond on top of it. This worked better for some nails than others. Probably because some of my nails are wonkier than others!
Also, geometry is important, kids. Stay in school.
I used Julep Char for the next set of dots, sweeping to one side..
And I used Julep Something Blue to make the dots that swept to the other side.
The original nail art used square studs, but I'm so in love with these triangle studs I just got, I had to use them instead. I love a good stud.
Topcoat is essential for keeping a stud in its place. All studs should be properly, um, restrained. Use your imagination.

Hopefully, you're seeing through this series that even nubs are a playground for studs.. and nail art! No need to hide your hands because of short nails!
