Stuff you’d need.

 Start by drawing the shape on a sturdy piece of paper. Make sure the glue gun is nice and hot and starting from the outer edges, fill in the shape. (If the glue isn’t at the proper temperature, the surface won’t be even.)


Wait till the glue dries. Once it sets, cut out the shape.
You can even out any rough edges of the glue using a pair of scissors.


If you’re adding embellishments, press them onto the glue before it sets to get an impression on the surface and remove them.

Paint it using some nail colors and let it dry. Even better if you have acrylics.

Sprinkle on some glitter before the paint dries. Top it all off with a coat of clear nail polish. Now glue the add-ons in the impression you made before.

You can make pearls using the same technique.
