This is HD from Olive and June. And while I usually don’t use any stones or stickers or any details I had these stickers sent from a cosmetic store with an order. I don’t have a steady hand to do any detail work. I gave these a try. Applied 2 coats of top coat to secure them in place. The white is 2 coats and was very creamy. After the 2nd coat the nail looked well covered so I did not see the need for a 3rd .

Trim toenails regularly. Keeping them short will minimize the risk of trauma and injury.Wear flip-flops at the pool and in public showers. This reduces the risk of infections caused by a fungus that can get in your toenails.Keep nails clean and dry.Cut nails straight across. Use sharp nail scissors or clippers. Round the nails slightly at the tips for maximum strength.Wear shoes that fit properly. Also, alternate which pair of shoes you wear each day.Keep nails shaped and free of snags by filing with an emery board.Do not bite fingernails or remove the cuticle. Doing so can damage the nail.Do not use your nails as a tool, such as opening pop cans.When toenails are thick and difficult to cut, soak your feet in warm saltwater. Mix one teaspoon of salt per pint of water and soak for 5 to 10 minutes.Avoid “digging out” ingrown toenails, especially if they are infected and sore. If you are suffering from an ingrown toenail, see a dermatologist for treatment.

@sahararex Plain old 100% acetone or alcohol are the best candidates for the job! You can buy a "dehydrator" if you really want to, but they're either going to be acetone or alcohol, with maybe some fragrance or color added, and marked up significantly.

@Tina30219 - I tried Orly Bonder a number of years ago and my polish came off more quickly than normal. Whether it was an incompatibility between the product and my nails or user error, I don't know. I always had good luck with Butter London Foundation, but it's very expensive. 😠

@Samtian Thanks for the tag! @Tina30219 I've got two of the polishes, and they're ok. One was a super easy two coater, no issues, but the other was a bit thin in coverage and needed three coats to even out streaks and bare spots. Both are deep shimmers, from the same collection even, so the difference in formula between the two was a bit surprising and off-putting. However, Gel Couture is on my no-buy list for a different reason: the brush stems are twisted (just like the bottles) and that makes cleaning off excess polish to keep it from dripping down the stem and flooding my nails *very* difficult, especially for someone with tremors (like me). I can't speak to the top coat personally but can say that folks that love it, love it, but they also report that it's not as quick drying as others out there, and quick dry is an important factor that I'm not willing to give up.

@Tina30219 Nails are dead material, and take 4-6 months to grow from base to tip. You likely won't be able to notice any difference until new growth gets out to the tip where you can evaluate if it's truly stronger or healthier in some way.
