You get ~50 fairly small studs which allows you to do many nail art looks. As you can see I can fit 3 studs on the length of my nail so they aren't super tiny but they don't overwhelm the nail. They are so lightweight and almost completely flat that you can't even feel them on your nail. This means they're much easier to wear than rhinestones because they won't catch on anything or have that feeling like they're going to pop off. You can either apply these with nail glue or put them on immediately after applying your topcoat(topcoat must be wet for them to stick). I used my super fine tip tweezers to place them where I wanted but you could also use a gem picker upper.

you can see how flat they lay against the nail.
Aren't these just so pretty?! I used Orly Rose Radiance under Layla UltraViolet then used WnW Black Creme to create the deep V and accented each nail with the square laser purple stud.
