Diamond up the Toenails

  1. To apply “diamonds” (rhinestones) to your painted toenails, first polish the nails as you normally would.
  2. After the polish has time to dry, add a drop of clear polish to the backside of the rhinestone and then affix it to the nail. Allow the polish to dry. If your rhinestones have an adhesive backing, you can skip this step.
  3. Apply a few coats of clear top coat polish over the entire nail, including the rhinestone, to seal the rhinestones in place.
  4. If you find it difficult to pickup and place your rhinestones, dampen the tip of an orange stick for small rhinestones, or use tweezers for larger rhinestones.
