1. Prep the nail and apply a base coat and primary color. Allow polish to dry.

2. Apply a large dot of top coat where you want the jewels to be placed.

3. Dip an orange wood stick in top coat or use pointed tweezers to pick up a jewel and press it lightly onnto the wet top coat on your nail. Repeat with other jewels and small pearls.

Pro tip: If the jewels are having a hard time sticking, try applying an extra bit of top coat where needed.

4. Apply a final layer of top coat over all the appliques and allow the polish to dry.
