NOTD:Elegant French Manicure and Pedicure with Rhinestones

by xin on March 22, 2010

I love rhinestones! But they are also quite hard to work with because you need to be really careful with them. And the position to place them can be quite a headache sometimes.

However, I have found an easy and fool-proof way to look good to share with 😀


A Tsuya-Tsuya nail wheel from @ RM29. The quality of the stones and the box are good! I can recycle the wheel for other stones without a casing.

An elegant french mani. You can just sweep white polish as a tip, or using french manicure stickers as guide.

When the polish is dry, coat a layer of top coat then quickly using tweezer to press the stones along the tip onto the nail.

It might be a little tedious…but it is a design that will not fail.  And they can cover the imperfections of the white tip.

Here’s how all 10 fingers look like. If you can see, I only stuck 3 or 4 stones to certain nails, but they will still look fine.

And finally cover a layer of top coat again to secure the stones.  If you are careful, they can last for more than a week before everything comes off. Of course, you might want to use nail glue if you really want to secure it tight.

For my toes.

It is harder to work on toes as I have to bend very much to see it and stick it to the flower shape. Hence only one toe is done.

Rhinestones are expensive in nail saloons…so DIY is a much better option 🙂
