Kamifubuki are laid out on the dried layer of colored varnish with the help of a dots or a wax pencil, and then overlap with a top. One layer may not be enough to level the surface, another one is needed.
Even the simplest manicure can be turned into a festive with sparkling rhinestones. Of course, elements in the form of stars are a little more expensive than regular round ones, but they look simply luxurious. This idea can be used, for example, for the New Year's manicure.
