You can purchase Makartt’s Aquarium Nail Tips for $15 and customize your own nail designs. The hollow press-ons  and syringe come with the kit.

The decorative filling can be glitter, sequins, and other small items. You place it in the opening of the press-ons then you use a syringe filled with oil to fill the opening. The liquid used needs to be non-evaporating.

Seal off the nail with gel nail polish. It needs to be gel because regular nail polish easily chips away, which could result in getting oil on your clothes.

Standing out: Some women use an aquarium nail on each fingers, while others go for a single statement nail on each hand
