I highly recommend buying Asian-style nail chips online, the ones that are all still attached like model pieces. When I first started doing this I was just getting cheap sets of 24 chips, glue and manipulating sticks from Wal Mart, because I'm obviously no pro. The trick to wearing these crazy nails is filing them down to a realistic length and applying many layers of top coat or some other kind of adhesive to the decorations. I used real candy sprinkles for these because I had them on hand. I stuck them to the still-wet white nail polish, and then followed up with top coat and acrylic spray.
