Question about nail charms
#1
I'm talking about the 3-d metal nail charms. For those who use them, what is the best way to stick them to the nail (gel or acrylic)? Also, how do you remove them when doing a fill? It does not seem likely that you can just file through them.

There is a jewelry bit that goes on the e-file, that's how I create the hole. For removal I just use my tip cutters to clip off the end of the nail and it will pop right off.

Thanks, but I did not mean the dangle charms but the flat ones.

I have just used a bit of clear acrylic to stick the charm on top. I have also sealed them in the acrylic. But when you glue it on top your can nip it off with nippers fairly easily.

I apply them with acrylic, and just nip at the ball with my cuticle nippers. Whatever is left of the acrylic can just be filed off.

I do have a question..... I drill the hole and place a full cut diamond into hole, use nail glue all the way around and underneath... after a few days my client calls and said it came out. The backing of the diamond is still in tack...what can I do to correct. Putting a top coat or gel on top would take away the facets :0/.... Any help would be great. P.S. It looks BEAUTIFUL when first done..... Smile

I've never used the rhinestones with the pointed back just the flat ones but the same thing happens. The bond between the backing and the glue is stronger than the bond between the backing and the crystal. Sometimes, when something hits it, it comes apart. It may be the brand of crystals I use but this has never happened to me when I've used acrylic to glue down the stone. You probably would have to drill a bigger hole. Also I've been using CND gel bond recently for rhinestones and it hasn't happened so far.

That method sounds really neat Smile do you have a picture of a finished nail using that technique I would be very interested to see what the finished product looks like Smile
