Hello again! 

Have  you guys ever seen 3D Nail Charms/Decorations that you think are cute but you have absolutely no idea how its possible to wear them? Because that was me with these decorations :P ...but, I decided I really wanted to figure something out. So I'll let you know how I did it, just in case you ever decide you want to give them a try.

**These products were sent to me for review. Please see my Disclosure Policy listed in the tabs above.**

I've always seen other people use 3D Pearls and 3D rhinestones (that don't have a flat surface), and wondered, "how the heck do they attach them to their nails!?" ...have you ever seen them and thought the same thing? 

I had them sitting around for a month or two and thought about using them a few times before I actually did. So, when I finally decided I was going to use them I decided to go through Instagram and find pictures of other people who have used them and see how they may have attached it to their nails (or hope they mentioned it in their post ;P). @red_iguana_ on Instagram has great videos of how to attach decorations btw.

I decided to do this cute design using one of the new China Glaze Chic Physique polishes. This is Pretty Fit, I applied 2 coats over all of my nails and then stamped Sinful Colors Snow Me White over my thumb, index and middle fingers using Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L020.

Once the polish was dry I placed some nail glue (a generous amount) onto the top section of my ring finger where I wanted to place the decorations. I first attached the 2 pearls side by side, and then placed the rhinestones (tip facing in towards pearls) directly in between the spaces above and below the pearls. It didn't quite look complete, so I added these mini silver ball decorations around the edge of the pearls and then took a small paint brush with some topcoat and went around the bottom edges of the decorations (I did not place topcoat over the top). After that was done I quickly and carefully applied topcoat to the rest of the nail.

Then to bring the design together I placed some of the silver ball decorations in the center of the flowers of the lace design, and then I did put topcoat over those decorations because they are small and I felt that if I didn't seal them in they would pop off the first time something touched them.

I wanted to keep these on for awhile to test out how well the decorations would stay on, and I must say that it worked really well! I had them on for a week and not one of the decorations on the ring finger came off (and I work in a Dental office where I wash my hands and wear gloves a lot!). I did have a few of the single silver balls pop off after a few days, but those are easy to pop back on.

So, if you're like me and have been wanting to give 3D charms a try, but you've been hesitant, I suggest you try it! Just make sure you use some nail glue and seal the edges and I think it should last you a good while! ;)  (oh and btw, when I did take them off, it came off in one whole piece!).

If you like these pearls and rhinestones I included direct links below the pictures near the top of this post. But you can find them here as well:, and make sure to use the code "PLAY" for 10% off of your entire order.
