If you wish to wear the jewellery for about a week, then you should apply nail glue. Once your nail expert applies the adhesive that’ll help your jewellery stay, you can place the jewels on the nails and follow it up by shaping the nails if need be.
You can use tweezers to remove the jewellery from your nails. However, you should keep in mind that you have to wash off your nails with a gentle cleanser so that there’s no glue residue left behind.
