deco nail decorating tutorial by CassandraJames deco nail decorating tutorial by CassandraJames
I know this is something totally random but I felt like sharing this here. I hope it useful to some people! :heart: I'm so getting into 3D nail art right now. When I create some more nails I'll have to upload some photos of them.

A tutorial for deco nails. If you want to see the tutorial in the form of a web page you can find it plus larger photos here at my Lolita fashin blog: [link]

Try a small hand bath of nail polish remover maybe? Good luck!

I have looked around but can not find the 1 or 2mm pearls and rhinestones

Try other places then like eBay or Etsy. It's really a matter of keeping your eyes peeled; pretty sure I got those pearls in a lucky pack which is why they may not sell them by themselves on the site any more.

Great job on the nails (: I've been looking up some tutorials but this one is the clean-cut and simple one I was looking for.

Would you suggest any other type of glue for the rhinestones/pearls?

I know Strapya has a silicone type glue but other than I really haven't experimented much. Superglue could work but I wouldn't recommend anything too weak since you nails take a lot of punishment during day to day activities.

They look really pretty - sweet tutorial :) I experiment with my nails a fair bit -real, as they are really strong+ I try and use healtyh nail polish base coats- and if you ever want to try something really cool and clever try Konad nail art- it gives soooo many possibilities :)

Indeed; using fake nails gives me a bit more flexibility with what you can do but I don't wear them all the time.

woah they are soo pretty! I've been looking some good tutorials and stuff on nail art in general, but I guess it's all more about experimenting and making just the same as with art in general. I'm so going to try to do this stuff during summer when i finally have time! Thanks for this tutorial.

Wow, that is SOOOO pretty!! I had to stop painting my nails altogether because they kept breaking and I found that when I left them totally alone THEN they got strong and healthy. *throws out all the "healthy" nail polishes I bought* Using fake nails sounds like a great alternative. :)

For a minute I thought the glue was a pair of batteries... I was like "Uh... I don't wanna use battery acid to look awesome... I think I'd rather be ugly..." XD

That's great! I haven't had much to do with fake nails in the past but as I said I've really found myself loving 3D nail art and wanting to experiment with it.
