Nailed it.

New nail trend alert! If you're one of those people who can't go a week without having a fresh coat of paint on your tips, consider crystal nails. Recently, Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing some at the American Music Awards, and now it's blowing up. Take a look at the manicure that's giving double takes.

Okay, so it may look intimidating, but with the right tools you can achieve this style in no time. First, paint a fresh coat of polish. Make sure the paint is still wet and apply the crystals with a rhinestone applicator. The design can be as simple or as intricate as you want! The hardest part is just finding the right tool to apply with. But we already did that for you!  The Crystal Katana Rhinestone Applicator works more precisely than a tweezer does.
