Agreed, they look so much better than pre made ones! Plus there's the added joy of them being attached to the nail completely, rather than having raised edges that catch on everything! And you can also then choose whichever shape and size you want :D

Sorry to hijack this thread, I was going to post something slightly similar, and came across this one!!

I use Gelicure, and bought these skulls last week... Can anyone suggest the best way to attach them? I don't think putting them in the tacky last colour layer, curing and then putting top coat on would hold them... If I took off the inhibition layer after I'd finished my nails, and attached them with nail tip glue, do you think this would work?

Again, sorry to hijack!! Xx

Are they flat backed? I'd try maybe pushing into some wet acrylic, or have you tried glue?

No, they kind of arch up :-/ I don't use acrylic :-( I'm going to attempt them tomorrow with glue, I just wanted to see if anybody had any better alternatives :) Thank you!! Xx

I order mine off ebay, would love to know a uk supplier? They all come from China and places but they do eventually come. They have some beautiful crystal ones also and if you avoid colour they look very classy. Nail delights stock 3d flowers.
