Hi kelly

I normally put rhinestones on while the polish is still tacky, never had a problem with them falling off this way.

I normally do the same as Sammie and then put layer of finishing sealer (or top coat if you dont have sealer!) over the top covering well over the rhinestones. Never had any come off - in fact its a b****r to get 'em off!!

Another option is to put a layer of gel over them and cure :)
I normally put nail art sealer over them its slightly thicker than top coat.

I put a tiny dab of Ez Flow Resin on the nail, pop the rhinestone on, and then seal with Melle's airbrush top coat - it's nice and thick and I never have probs with them coming off.

I usually put them on when the nails r still tacky then go over with a sealer or use a touch of gelbond then top coat both these work for me

I always apply a little dot of top coat.....pop the rhinestone on (a little gentle pressure) and then top coat over em!
I agree with Carole.....they are almost IMPOSSIBLE to get off!

Onto wet nail varnish with a thick top coat is great, or use a little gelbond, its also good for sticking your rear view mirror back on the windscreen if it falls off!!!!! :lol: :lol:
