I just had to do galaxy nails for today’s prompt because it’s been a while since I last did them! And, I have to admit, I’ve never been as happy to be an Aquarius as I was today. It is probably one of the easiest signs to freehand! Of course, mine left quite a bit to be desired but the rest of the look came out awesome…in my opinion, heh!

Today was also the perfect time to try out these star studs I received from Born Pretty Store. If I was going to try 3D studs they had to be in my favorite star shapes. Luckily, they were available in the 2mm size which were small enough for my tiny little nail stubs! I wouldn’t name these particularly RA-friendly as I had to use tweezers to turn them right side up but after that they applied without further hassle. They fell off the nail more easily than the Fimo canes. The bottom is slightly hollowed out so if I apply these with normal top coat application there is less surface area to adhere to the nail. However, they did hold up to light normal finger movement. If I remember to remove them properly the pieces are definitely re-usable. Though, I imagine I will lose quite a few too as I knocked a few out of the tin without realizing it!
