You'll need these supplies. Toothpicks or tweezers work great for picking up bling. I may or may not use the nail strip tape, cause it peels off after a couple days even with proper adhesion.

I LOVE Nailene! They work better than Kiss or other brands; last MUCH longer and stronger. The Ultra Precise glue is perfect for bling! I use the Kiss on the pins glued to the nails, removes easier :)

First start with 2 coats of neon. I used Sinful Colors 60 Fashion Neon. The yellow is Icing Grande Margarita. You can use your real nail or if you're like me I only wear fake nails :)

Polish and shine up the the bling with shiny topcoat. Do the bling part first, then the rest of the nail if you decide to use shiny topcoat.

I decided to use matte topcoat on this set to make the bling really pop! Paint around the bling and drag away towards the edge, coating evenly. Do not paint over the bling with matte.

Play with designs :) I love the eagle but it's too big, best for thumb nails. The one on the right will do :)
