Oh wow, I totally failed to get a good picture of this. :c Sorry.
The red bored me more than I thought, and since I’d been wanting to encrust my nails for a while anyway, that’s how I decided to jazz it up. It ended up feeling a little less glitzy and more like a poison mushroom, though. Cool either way.
Lessons learned: while applying a layer of topcoat after placing the gems works pretty well to unify everything, it does dull the faceting some. Next time, topcoat up, then apply gems with glue.
