    Steps For Adding Gems To Heart Nails More Info
    Prepare Your Nails Start with clean, dry nails. Ensure your nails are free of any polish or oils.
    Apply Base Coat Apply a base coat to protect your natural nails and provide a smooth surface for the gems.
    Choose Gem Placement Plan where you want to place the gems on your nails. You can opt for a single gem as an accent or create intricate designs with multiple gems.
    Apply Clear Nail Polish or Nail Glue Using clear nail polish or nail glue, apply a small drop to the area where you want to place the gem. Make sure it’s tacky but not fully dried.
    Pick Up the Gems Use tweezers or a gem picker tool to pick up the gems. This allows for precise placement without getting glue or polish on your fingers.
    Place the Gems Gently place the gem onto the tacky area. Use an orange stick or a dotting tool to adjust the position if needed. Press down lightly to secure the gem.
    Create Gem Patterns Experiment with different gem patterns or arrangements to achieve your desired look. You can create lines and shapes or even cover the entire nail.
    Allow to Dry Allow the gems to fully adhere and the polish or glue to dry completely. This may take a few minutes, depending on the product used.
    Apply Top Coat (Optional) For added durability and to secure the gems in place, apply a clear top coat over the entire nail. Ensure the top coat covers the edges of the gems.
    Clean Up Excess Glue or Polish If there’s any excess glue or polish around the gems, clean it up with a small brush or cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover.
