Where can you get the best value and colours when ordering Rhinestones?

I have never ordered any before and want to know where is the cheapest? Also, has anybody tryed the pick up pen from Pro-Nails? And if so then is it any good?

What is the best size to get when buying rhinstones? Is it 1.5mm?

Thank You

I have always bought my rhinestones and stencils from Melle at www.allthingsnails.co.uk

As to the pickup pen - I have tried the picker upper from NSI and not found it very successful. I use an orangewood stick or a microbrush with a tiny bit of blu tack on the end.

I use an orange stick too dipped ever so slightly into water - this works great :D Then about 3 coats of topcoat or nail art sealer to seal it in well

I actually put them on with adhesive and only need one coat of topcoat - they stay put until the client returns 2 weeks later for rebalance.

Doesn't the adhesive ruin the nail plate? What type of adhesive do you use?

I used to stick them on with adhesive but found that they were more likely to come off this way :( Because they were more rigid I found that they'd prise off if caught on something, leaving just the backing on the nail. Have found the gentler way of applying by putting over a few top coats seems to make them stay on better :)

It was advertised in 'Nails' and it can be seen on the Pro Nails website, it looks like a pen, but it picks them up.

I have something called Pic.n.Stic........
They look like a cotton bud without the cotton and it has a sticky end. They are great for picking them up but you do need something to pry it off the end with, and I use a cocktail stick for that.
Pic.n.Stic is American but I buy it from Dental Art in Cumbria(I think)

Hi everyone :D ... I am not a nail tech and no where near a professional but i must admit i am a complete nut for nails and everything that has 2 do with nails. And i have a very easy solution for picking up those lil buggers(aka rhinestones)..an orange wood stick dipped in the smallest amount of clear top coat..does the trick everytime and no need 2 worry about a lil bit of top coat on the rhinestone since it will be covered up anyway...hope this works for ya all....*miss*

Am I allowed to say that I sell Rhinestones on my website?

www.libertynaildesign.com

If it's just round ones you want, then Melle has a great selection on her website www.allthingsnails.co.uk but I also sell star, snowflake, teardrop, bagette, oval, square and flower shaped rhinestones, as well as round. I'm based in Dublin but ship to the UK on a regular basis.

Sorry for the plug!

Jackie
