Bold Buttons

Dry brush is really easy effect that looks like abstract art and is super fast.

I kept changing my mind on what to do with these buttons, but decided to go with an artsy look over something cutesy. I received these button charms from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review. The buttons come in six different colors - white, pink, light blue, yellow, green, and teal. I chose the pink. :) Each button is about 6mm in diameter and you get two in the set. They may be a little large on short nails, but I'm not opposed to big charm, so it works for me. The buttons have a flat back, so the edges can get caught on things if you aren't careful. Just use really strong glue, or surround the button with other rhinestones or studs.
