Default Does anyone make Rhinestone flip flops?

Does anyone make rhinestone flip flops? Just curious if you completely cover the straps with rhinestones do you then seal the rhinestones with anything to protect them from falling off?

I have added a picture so you can see what I am talking about

I would strongly discourage sealing the rhinestones or crystals (whichever you use) Even a finger print will fog the clarity. Any sealer is going to take away from the brilliance. Just use the best glue! Even my $100 pairs of Jimmy Crystals have lost some stones here and there... Nothing is forever... : (

That is true. I am thinking about trying to use E6000 glue to attach them... any other suggestions on what type of glue to try?

I use a glue called Mighty Gemit from the makers of mighty mendit. And let me tell you... Once those puppies are dry you can not move it with a sledge hammer! LOL!!! I have put some rhinestones on a plastic lunch box, and my 5 yr old DD has yet to remove one!

My friend puts swarovski crystals on different things. I am not sure what she uses, but You can not get those suckers off for anything. So there are ways to put them there to say. Sorry I don't know how, but at least you know there is a way.

I don't do to any because of the cost involved. I only use high quality ones any way so that is my issue. LOL!

Regarding my post earlier, it is not the glue that is the problem. It is the fact that you're securing to "rubber". I have yet to talk to a rep for a glue company that has been able to tell me that x glue is recommended for permanent, long term adhesion for rhinestones to rubber. If you all have one, LMK please!

Like I said not sure what she uses, but she puts it on shoes and you can wash them and the crystals will not come off.
