I recently received some wheels filled with nail gems. Since I haven't really ever used nail gems before I did this manicure as more of an experiment. I just played around with a couple of designs.
I used Color Club Cold Metal, Hot Like Lava, Perfect Mol-Ten, and assorted nail art gems from Bundle Monster. I wasn't really bothered by having something sticking off my nails, but they did pop off pretty quickly. That's not too bad for me though because I change my nails about everyday anyway.
