Hi Lynda

You can use either method. i usually apply mine with top coat and then make sure you seal them again using top coat. You don't need to be trained, just enjoy making up your designs, and make sure you charge for them too :)

antony gave me a good tip, put the stone on with a tiny bit of adhesive, this way you dont need to top coat it and it keeps on twinkling like a star. :lol:

Hi lynda,

I go over the nail with a thin coat of top coat. I have a small piece of blu tac on the end of one of my nail art brushes, I use this to pick up the rhinestone and place it on the nail - if you press gently the rhinestone will settle into the top coat but without making any marks. when i have completed my design with rhinestones i then go over the whole nail with top coat to leave a high gloss finish.

You can do this over natural nails or nail enhancements.

I hope this helps! :)

Jenn xx
