Studded nails with American Apparel Passport Blue

So after a week of bright, colorful nails, I wanted something edgier so I decided to put little metal balls and rhinestones on top of American Apparel Passport Blue. I wanted to go for a studded, punky look.

This was my first time using these little balls and they were a lot more difficult to work with than I had imagined. I also didn't add a top coat on them initially, and when I woke up the next morning I had about 2 little metal balls left so I ended up redoing them and layering like 3 coats of topcoat to make sure I wouldn't have to redo them again. If you enlarge the pics, you can see they heavy coat of topcoat I put over them to make sure the suckers aren't going anywhere.
