Week #23 – 3Ds

More experimentation with pretty basic 3D techniques (Poundland crystals, in fact).

The main difficulty here is whether to top coat over the crystals. If you do, they stay on for weeks but they loose their sparkly-ness as the top coat smooths over all the facets. If you just glue the crystals to a finished nail and leave it at that, they might stay on for two or three days.  YOUR CALL.

The difference is far more pronounced than it appears in these shitty phone photos. Apologies for this also; temporarily lack decent photography solutions!

6.2/10

You know you’ve seen more exciting nails on this blog. It is what it is.
