Studded Nail Designs: 18 Ideas for Rocking 3-D Nails

When it comes to edgy fashion, studs are badass on garments and accessories, and this season, they're a must-have for your mani. These glue-on gems may be the simplest way to get the perfect 3-D nails, so we've rounded up 18 nail art tutorials you can do at home!

Rainbow Stud Mani

2 / 18

If you prefer vibrant colors, try Very Emily's 3-D nails. These digits balance neon studs with matte black polish and a heart accent nail. They are festival-worthy, but we'd rock them every day.

Throwing Star Mani

7 / 18

While you might have to be a ninja to keep from stabbing yourself with these faux throwing stars, these unique digits by Lab Muffin are well worth it. With the novelty, the matte black polish, and oozing "blood" all going for these nails, they'll have everyone's eyes on them.

Fish-Egg Nails

12 / 18

If a few rounded studs aren't enough, try creating a 3-D accent nail with Kiss My Sparkle's tutorial. The caviar reference and jewel tones make these high-class. If you want to take this mani from dinner party to everyday, try pastel colors with silver beads.

Studs and Pearls

14 / 18

Combining badass studs with ladylike pearls gives 3-D nails more character. Try an all-pearl accent nail with a single stud on the rest of your digits as Brit Nails did for a clean look.
