♥ Rhinestone fun { I am not serious with this }♥

above - here is all the rhinestones from the Dollarama rhinestone wheels that I found last month.

Maybe I should say 'plastic' stones.... because these are not crystal=oops; so maybe 'embellishments'?

I tried out some of the rhinestones I bought at Dollarama  ( in Canada ) , I thought they would look huge on the nail but they actually look pretty decent. Of course, this is just a 'for fun' look. I was just messing around with different patterns and such.

Not too bad for a buck for each wheel. I also used some of the Nailene jewels, the tear drop shaped pink ones on my ring nail.

 I have applied this with just a coat of clear polish, then placed them on the nail using..... A PIECE OF DRY SPAGHETTI THAT I BROKE INTO SMALL PIECES. Serious. A piece of spaghetti, I licked it and then picked up the individul stones with it. So far this is the best way to apply stones and different nail art.

 I wish I knew that sooner becuase this whole mess took me like 5 minutes to do.

 These things actually stuck on perfectly just the clear nail polish anchoring them to my nail, but if I do a look soon with rhinestones I will be putting Top Coat over it, to make sure I don't loose any.

This was my mani from the other day 'Logical Asparagus' and I added some of the origional polish I used to make this franken; Sally Hansen HAN Radish using a curved french tip guide.

the clear embellishments

the small colour embellishments

I love the square and rectangle clear rhinestones and the Nailene Tear drop rhinetones

Sally Hansen Radish, the polish I mixed with white to get the base colour I am wearing.

I had other plans for this mani.... but decided to test out these rhinestones

How long did they last? Before they fell off? Mine never last more than a day.

These remind me of Lady Gaga, haha!

And I'm totally trying that spaghetti trick next time I use rhinestones, how did you come to try it?

There is no such thing as too much glam on your nails!
Love the spagetti-trick, I got a tool from Essence to pick up nailart from my sister, but if I didn't I would have used your trick.

Haha, I love it! The more rhinestones the better, in my opinion.

I've tagged you with a Sweet Friends award at my blog here:

♥ The Green Fairy - I will be doing a look with these soon and testing how long they hang on with my Nailene Arylic Strong Top Coat. If you apply rhinestones either with nail glue or just top coat, I would try and add another layer of top coat to seal them in♥

♥ Freshie - Haha thanks I love over the top looks♥ I just popped these off with a 'scraper' thing and removed my polish as usual.

♥ l0verlada - Thanks - I was shocked at how easy it was to pick these up with the spaghetti!

♥ Kimberly - Thanks!

♥ Aggie Pigeon - Thanks it was super easy and fast.

♥ Polishsis - Thanks I wasnt sure where to find a thing to pick up rhinestones and other embellishments.

♥ Pam - Thanks I love over-doing it. Thank you for the tag!!!!

♥ Jaljen - Thanks this is just a look for fun, I will be doing 'real' looks soon.

Looks like a lot of fun...Do you use the foil method when taking these off?
