Step 25. After the paints are dried, I started to add Swarovski crystals and Swarovski pixies to my art. I used my crystal katana to pick up the gems, even the big ones, and I secured them with crystal glue gel. Step 26. When all my crystals was on the tip, I used a non wipe top coat and a short detailing art brush to make sure I'm not touched the crystals with the top coat.
