Girlie Googly Eyes and Studly Stars from BPS

*** This post contains items which were sent for review and affiliate links. ***

Hey y'all!

Today I have a couple more goodies to show you.  These were sent to me for review by Born Pretty Store, from their new arrivals section.  Here I have some girlie googly eyes and a wheel of gold and silver star-shaped studs.  After the jump, I'll show you the nail art looks I created with them!

For the googley eyes, I considered a lot of different possibilities, but these are actually a bit bigger than I was expecting, so I opted to paint a girl (in acrylic paint) and give her eyes that would let her look all over the place.

I started by painting all my nails with two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff.  I used acrylic paints to add her hair, nose, and lips, and applied the character eyes with nail glue.

On my other nails, I created french tips with Essie Leading Lady, and lined the tip with tiny white half-pearls.

To show off the stars, I created this American patriotic look.

I began this look by painting each nail with a coat of Sinful Colors Hot Shot.   On my middle and ring fingers only, I added two coats of China Glaze All Wrapped Up and then laid stripes of Essie Leading Lady down the center.  On the other nails, I created the same kind of stripe using Pure Ice Superstar! (both stripe colors took two coats).  I didn't use any special tools for the stripes, just the bottle brushes and a steady hand.  I find it helps if you swipe it fairly quickly.

While the stripe polish was still wet, I added the studs down the center of each nail, and finished by applying topcoat to seal everything in.

    1. In retrospect, maybe I should've done a muppet instead. LOL.

  2. So, how long did the googley eyes last?
