Punk Rock Rings from Born Pretty Store

Today's manicure is inspired by the punk skulls and painful piercings of punk rock culture (or at least how it's embodied in my mind).

Born Pretty Store, the well-stocked e-tailor of fashion accessories including a huge variety of nail art supplies, sent me a set of rhinestone studs and gold rings. They roll together in a nail art wheel, and the rings can be pried apart to pinch around the tip of your nail, faking a pierced look.

I wouldn't actually wear these anywhere, but I'll wear them for the art of the look!

I hand painted the skull (using this design as a guide) using black polish and a tiny detailing brush I picked up at Sally's. The neon polish underneath is OPI's new one, Life Gave Me Lemons.

This nail art wheel is available for $3.95 from Born Pretty Store (10% off with my coupon code C10X31), and shipping worldwide is FREE! No excuse not to give it a try.

What do you think of the punk rock rings? Are they too impractical for you, or would you give them a try sometime? I know I certainly couldn't regularly rock them, but might pull them out come Halloween!

These products were sent to me by Born Pretty Store. The reviews are based entirely on my experience with the products and were in no way influenced by anyone.


  1. How awesome! I love the idea of the fake nail piercings! I don't think I could stand wearing them for long but they look so cool and edgy :)

  2. Hehe this is so cool! I really like the index finger! Awesome :-)

  3. I like the rings with the rhinestones! That's kind of a cool, funky look. The piercing… not something I could rock!

  4. Definitely agree with Hannah - the rhinestones with a ring round them look awesome - kind of like a flesh tunnel but sparkly! I'm not certain about the "pierced" ones, but I think I'd try it as a one-off.
