Yes, seriously, I put rub-ons on my stubby little toes. I did two coats of color and let them dry. Then I stuck the rub-on onto it. I didn't even need to rub; it just stuck. Then I put two coats of clear on top. If you decide to do this, go over the rub on only ONCE in each spot -- don't go over an area that you've already covered with clear. It'll smear if you do. I'll let you know how long these last.
