So what is the purpose of No HF rhinestones? First off, its plain back allows nail glue to adhere to the entire back. On a HF rhinestone, the glue is not properly adhered to the entire back since there is a layer of unnecessary glue. Secondly, and probably most importantly, the No-HF rhinestones are enhanced with platinum foiling for extra brilliance and protection.
There you have it. The difference is that HF rhinestones were made for fabric and to withstand high heat to secure the pre-applied glue. No-HF rhinestones shine more and are more compatible for nail art since you can glue them down to the acrylic nail properly. So it's really a matter of preference! HF are cheaper, No-HF work better for nail art. Here at Kreativ Nail Supply, the only stones we carry are Swarovski Flat Back No-HF Rhinestones.
