How to do a Nail Dangle

In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of creating a stunning nail dangle that will make your nails stand out from the crowd.

Gather Your Materials

Nail dangles

You can find a wide variety of nail dangles, including rhinestones, charms, beads, chains, and more. Choose one that matches your desired style.

Nail polish

Select a base color that complements your nail dangle and any additional nail art you plan to incorporate.


A high-quality topcoat will protect your nail art and provide a glossy finish.

Nail glue

Opt for a strong adhesive specifically designed for nail art to ensure your dangle stays securely in place.


These will help you handle the delicate nail dangle with precision.

Prepare Your Nails

Clean and shape your nails

Start by removing any old polish and shaping your nails to your desired length and shape.

Apply a base coat

Apply a thin layer of base coat to protect your nails and help the polish adhere better.

Apply your chosen base color

Apply two coats of your selected nail polish color, allowing each coat to dry completely before proceeding.

Positioning the Dangle

Decide on the placement

Consider the desired location of your nail dangle. It can be placed at the tip, near the cuticle, or in the center of your nail. Plan accordingly.

Apply nail glue

Using a small amount of nail glue, carefully place it on the desired spot where you want to attach the dangle.

Secure the dangle

With the help of tweezers, gently pick up the nail dangle and place it onto the glue. Press it down lightly to ensure a secure attachment.

Finishing Touches

Seal the dangle

Apply a layer of topcoat over the nail dangle, making sure to cover the edges. This will provide extra security and help prevent the dangle from snagging on clothing or other objects.

Complete your nail art

If you want to enhance your manicure further, consider incorporating additional nail art techniques such as hand-painted designs, stamping, or glitter accents. Get creative and let your personal style shine through!

Allow ample drying time

It is essential to allow sufficient time for your nail art to dry completely. This will help avoid any accidental smudging or damage to your hard work.

Maintenance and Removal

Protect your dangle

Avoid activities that may put excessive strain on the nail dangle, such as aggressive typing, pulling or picking at your nails, or using abrasive cleaning products without gloves.

Maintain your manicure

Apply a clear topcoat every few days to prolong the life of your nail dangle and prevent any chipping or peeling.

Safe removal

When you’re ready to remove the nail dangle, soak a cotton pad in nail polish remover and place it on the nail for a few seconds. Gently wipe away the dangle and any residue, being careful not to damage your nails.
