Winstonia Nail Studs Review


Winstonia Nail Studs

I am so unbelievably lucky because Winstonia sent me several nail art wheels to review!  These studs are not only super cute and unique, but they have just been getting all my creative juices flowing!  I have four manis to showcase utilizing nail studs from each of the four wheels, however, there will be plenty more manis to come!  Check out my IG feed for more up to date manis (@saraxbeara).

To start:

I love the bright colors that this wheel has.  The small, circular studs are perfect for 
lining any french tipped manicure.

I have been seeing the most incredible "leadlight" manis popping up all over Instagram.  After seeing a tutorial on Nail It Magazine's website I knew I had to give a go!  So this was my attempt at a french tipped leadlight manicure.  I used MoYou London Pro Collection 06 for the stamping and a combination of Sally Hansen sheer nail polishes and the OPI sheer tints.  

The bronze, circular studs were so easy to apply!  I personally like to use a dotting tool with a little bit of top coat to make it stick.  I then covered everything with Vapid Lacquer Top Coat.

This wheel is really unique because of the shapes available and I love the unique colors.  The deep red and cheetah-ish looking studs are by far my favorites.

For this mani, I was inspired by the small, square cheetah-esque studs.  I created this look by doing a light green to brown gradient fade.  I used B Squared Lacquer "Sprout" and Zoya "Avery".  I topped it off with a coat of Freak Show Polish "The Force", and finished with a coat of Vapid Lacquer Top Coat.  I then placed the square studs and topped with one more coat of Vapid Lacquer Top Coat for good measure.  

And then there were two:

I definitely think that this wheel has the most uniquely shaped studs out of the whole set.  I really love the gold diamonds and the ruby shape to the right of it?  I'm not even sure what shape that is, but I love it!

For this look I started with two coats of Spellbound Nails "Black Leather & Thigh Highs".  I then placed the large, gold, diamond studs and finished with a coat of Vapid Lacquer Top Coat.

I love how the diamond pieces look with two pressed together.  Definitely reminds me of some kind of military plane.  I also heard a lot of "Transformers" when I posted this mani on IG.

And to round it all out:

In this wheel you can really see how unique in color and texture this bundle pack is!  The first 
five slots to the right of the white divider are just so unique in shades and design.

For this mani I started with a coat of Zoya "Blu".  I then placed floral water decals of assorted shades on every single nail.  I topped everything with a nice coat of Vapid Lacquer Top Coat and placed the small, black, square studs.  This look totally reminds me of a phone case that I used to have!  I love the style and contrast of the delicate flowers with the black, edgy studs.

I definitely would have to say that my favorite part about these studs are the uniqueness of each wheel.  I have purchased many nail accessory wheels and tend to find them pretty generic.  I love the variety of shapes, colors, and even textures of the Winstonia nail art studs from this bundle pack.  For the price and quality, I would not only recommend these nail art studs, but I am totally going to continue using them in the future!  If you are interested in purchasing any of the studs pictured in this post you can find them here.

Have a beautiful week!
