Hi, geeks.

I'm looking to buy some Swarovski Crystals as my rhinestones are rather dull and quite bulky... But I don't know what size to get. Has anyone got pictures of different sizes on the nails?

Sorry to be a pain but I'm looking to buy in bulk and trial/error isn't really something I can afford to do right now!

Xx

By the way, I've tried a search but my phone is playing up - more than happy to read other threads if someone could link me to a few? :) xx

Hi,

I find the best ones are 1.8mm, they are the smallest I can find, and they are small but it looks so much nicer when on the nail and not bulky!:)

Hope that helps:):biggrin:

Tbh I didn't know they came in diff sizes but I suppose the smaller they are the better they will look. Would these not catch on everything?

These look lovely:) x

when i went on my swarovski course everyone used SS07, I had SS09 and personally i preferred them on toes as the crystal look was acheived better.

However the ady i worked on had hot pop pink shellac with white glitter then SS07 scattered on the toes and this looked gorge!

For fingers however id definatly go for SS05/06/07.

I bought mine from scatter crystals xxx

Hello

I have ordered some crystals which I have never used before so will be practicing on myself first. I was just wondering what you do when removing them:) x
