Tips for Rhinestone Application

So many people often wonder the best way to apply
rhinestones & how to keep them lasting long. 
So , heres what works for me. 

To get rhinestones to stick well you should
use a top coat  on top of your nail polish and place
the rhinestones on.

Make sure you push the rhinestones in so that
they are basically in between the polish and the top coat.
That way they are sealed in. 
Then what you should do is add a high
shine top coat to seal them in even more. 
If you are using Seche Vite which works well, 
make sure that it doesnt dry before you place it on. 
Nail Polish doesnt completely set 
for several hours normally. But, with Seche Vite
the process is sped up so make sure the stones are
right in there before it dries.

If you want long lasting rhinestones you can 
use a nail glue. Nail Glue does not harm your
nails as its on top of the polish or 
base coat, usually.  

For me to remove my rhinestones using nail glue - 
I actually put my nail horizonatally
in my mouth and actually pull off the entire layer 
of rhinestones.It sounds horrendous but it works 
like a charm ! Its hard to remove
them when they are stuck on with glue ! Haha ! 

To apply the rhinestones I usually use a regular 
old match these days. 
I have found that its the most effective way. 
I dip it into a small bit of base or top coat which
allows the stones to be picked up more

Most Top Coats create a cloudy finish to rhinestones
so make sure you test yours out first. 

The only way to have rhinestones that last for a 
super long time is to basically have Gel Nails. 
However, with these tips you should be able to get 
about 5 days out of your nail look with rhinestones. 

If you are deco-ing with rhinestones then you 
should use a clear epoxy glue that doesnt dry instantly. 
This gives you time to move things around. It also
prevents that cloudy look to your stones. Some
super glues give off a strange finish. 

I have a couple places where I purchase my
rhinestones and deco pieces.

For bigger more detailed pieces , esp deco pieces :

For generic rhinestones:
Just search '1 mm rhinestones' or '2 mm rhinestones'
You will find lots of cheap ones from Asia etc !

If you dont want to get them online you can try your local
pharmacy or Beauty Supply. I know pharmacys have 
the basic silver ones by Sally Hansen. 
I use those too : )
