Precious Gemstone Nails: Manicure featuring Born Pretty Store Nail Art Stone

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Hey everyone, today I am sharing a fun and purely decorative mani using nail art cabochon stones from Born Pretty Store. These nail art gemstones are lightweight artificial stone pieces, measuring around 8mm long and 4mm thick at its thickest part. They are sold in sets of 5 pieces for $0.99. To read more, click.....

These stones look very nice and fancy, they look like parts off of a real piece of jewelry. However, the bottom of these stones are flat and thus does not contour against the curves of the nails at all. I wanted to place this on my ring finger but the curvature of my ring fingernail would not allow it so I ended up placing it on my middle finger.
In addition, the flat bottom also impeded with the wear of them as edges of things will get caught between the space underneath the stone and above the nails. Hence, this manicure is not at all practical. But hey it looks pretty cool right?
I decorated along the edges of the stone with a row of gold "caviar" steel ball beads and that complemented the stone very well. The base color I used is called "Careless Coral" from Mary Kay.
