Get a French manicure
Get a French manicure or give one to yourself at home.
Make sure your nails are thoroughly dry, and separate the rhinestones by color.
Apply a clear topcoat to one nail.
Dip one end of the toothpick or orange stick into water. Pick up a single rhinestone, with the moist end of toothpick, and place it onto the nail's wet topcoat. Press it firmly into the nail.
Repeat, applying the rhinestones horizontally across your nail in rows. Apply a topcoat to the next nail and repeat.
Apply one or two more coats of topcoat to set the rhinestones in place. Freshen your topcoat every two to three days and your sparkling new digits should last up to a week.
