Tweed Nails + Born Pretty Store Pearl | Review & Nail Art

Hey guys! Only a few days until Valentine's Day. So I thought I would use some pinks and muted purples for the lovey dovey days! I have been dyyyyying to do tweed nails. On Instagram, I saw sooo many girls (and boys?) creating tweed nail art and it intrigued me. Today, I will show you my first take on tweed nails!

Tweed nails are so easy to do. I used 4 different polishes and I think that gives the best effect. First, I applied 2 coats of my base colour which is the second lightest shade. With a slightly darker shade, I painted on small vertical and horizontal lines, making sure they crossed. Then, I did the same with my darkest colour and repeated with white. I let it dry for a couple of minutes and applied a fast-drying top coat. Et voilà, you are done!

The pretty pearl stud on my ring finger is from Born Pretty Store. You can get them here. I got the 4mm ones and they fit my nail perfectly. 

Materials used for this manicure:
  • OPI - Don't Bossa Nova Me Around
  • Catrice - Karl Says Très Chic
  • Catrice - Put Lavender On Agenda
  • Catrice - Goldfinger
  • Essie - Not Just A Pretty Face
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • Born Pretty Store - Pearl studs

Have you tried out tweed nails yet? I will be doing them again very soon. They are so easy and quick to do, but look like they took you hours to do. :-D Do not forget to use my code THL91 to get 10% off of your order on Born Pretty Store! <3

*Pearl studs were sent to me as a pr sample*


  1. These look sooo good!! I love the colours you picked too, Karl Says Très Chic is a gorgeous colour. I will definitely have to put tweed nails on my to do list!! (also I'm so jealous that you have Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, I missed it when it was in the shops and now I've been searching all over for it but of course no shop has it anymore booh)

    1. Thank you!! I love DBNMA! I use it at least 3 times a month, it's the perfect nude for my skintone. I will be devasted if I run out one day.. Maybe you could check nailsupplies.us? They might carry it!

    2. Ooh I hadn't heard of that shop before! I looked just now, but atm they don't carry any OPI's :/ Hopefully I'll find it somewhere in the future though, thanks!

    3. They do carry them! And Dbnma too, I just checked it 😊. You have to login to see the OPIs 😉😉
