What’s the best way to keep rhinestones on the nail so they don’t fall off as easily?

Answer

The best way to keep rhinestones from falling off is by applying them with nail glue. I’ve found using an orangewood stick is the best way to apply the glue without making a mess. For a step-by-step, you can check out my video on YouTube.com called “How to Apply Rhinestones” at www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mN1CZf6fQ4— Patricia Lopez of Studio 24 in Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico, won NAILS Mural Contest in 2008.

How Do I Learn Nail Art If No One Is Available to Teach Me?

I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
