One of the newest nail trends this season is caviar nails. It’s gorgeous, affordable, and easy to do.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Base Nail Colour (To match the beads you are going to be using)
Missing from the photo above is the Recollections Clear microbeads, which is the one I decided to go with for this look. I purchased this package from Michaels. As for the base nail colour, I used Sally Hansen’s Smooth and Perfect Fog.
Step One: Apply one coat of your base colour. Let it dry completely.
Step Two: For this step, you want to do one nail at a time. Apply a generous amount of base colour on your nail. Before the polish dries, you want to pour the microbeads over your nail on top of a container so that you are able to re-collect the leftovers. Gently apply pressure to secure the beads on to the nail. You may need to pour some more beads on to cover missing spots, and that is okay. Repeat this step to all of your other nails.
Step Three: You want to apply a tiny bit of top coat to your nail tips to secure this look.
Lastly, pour your leftover beads back into the container they came in. We don’t want to waste all of that, now do we?
And there we have it, a cheaper, more affordable version of Caviar nails.
