Hello Everyone it’s time to do the snoopy dance, it’s the final day!

This needs some pre-prep, but the only trouble I had was getting the rhinestones to stay still when I was painting them. I opted for dripping polish on them and kinda using the brush to whisk the excess polish off and with the help of a pin to hold it still when applying the second color.

Whites are Zoya Goldie with OPI Mimosas For Mr. & Mrs over that, and reds are Zoya Paloma with Essie Shearling Darling as the second coat.

The next day they were dry and all you had to do is figure out the placement so it will end up close to the cuticle area.

This is my starting point. Place the rest of studs so they overlap (I had a photos of this but it somehow got deleted) so check Ali’s blog if you need the next steps.

Apply a thick layer of topcoat to keep everything in place. I stamped the other nails to make it look like tribal/rune markings, and they’re done.

  2. You did such a beautiful job with these! I had the problem getting them to stay still as well, so I stuck them to a piece of scotch tape which I taped down to a piece of paper. It kept them all in one place and steady enough to paint them pretty easily. I bet double sided tape would accomplish this as well.
