Grasp the stud at the part that stays outside your nose. Point the tip of the L-shape that goes into the nose down towards the pierced hole. Slide the L-shaped stud into the hole and then curve it so that the nose ring adjusts to where the bent part of the piercing is facing up on the inside of your nose.

Also to know is, do L shaped nose rings fall out?

The main disadvantage of L-shaped rings is that they often fall out easily. Their level of security cannot be guaranteed like the other types of nose rings. Again, if you don't want a nose ring that would be too visible, you should consider other types other than the L-shaped types. L-shaped rings are very conspicuous.

Keeping this in view, what type of nose ring stays in the best?

A nostril screw is the way to go. Flatback labrets can be good, but most nostril piercings are small gauge (20g - 18g) and it's hard to find that style in such a small size. A nostril screw has no threading to come undone, and, in my experience, is very comfortable to wear in your nose.

How do I stop my L shaped nose ring from falling out?

L-bends will fall out pretty easily (but you can make them more secure by wearing an o-ring on the back), screws stay in better, and labret studs make the most secure nose jewelry - but you may need help installing them since the jewelry is inserted from the backside of the piercing (inside the nose).
