I have finally found some great spike studs which are the perfect size for some crazy nail art! My inspiration for the nails came from these amazing shoes from Kurt Geiger.

First off I will show you the spikes I will be using:
After my original attempt to create spiked nails, in which I made the spikes from clay (!) I got contacted by an ebay seller who stocked exactly the type of spike I was looking for. You can get them here from the seller 'innovationstore' or they also stock some slightly bigger ones depending on the size you are looking for.
In order to match the shoes I decided to create a black half moon look, topped with a matte top coat to imitate the leather of the shoes. I then added spikes, stuck on with Elegant Touch brush on nail glue, along the half moon to finish the design.
I think these spikes are a little too large and sharp for prolonged use but they are great for a one off design. I would still love to find even smaller spikes for my nail art (if theres is anyone reading who knows where I can find these drop me an email!!).
