I've seen all sorts of Caviar Nail kits out on the market over the past year but they looked to me like they'd be more trouble than they were worth. But I came across this "My Beauty Spot" kit while I was in Las Vegas a few months ago and couldn't resist. There were 8 bottles of polish and beads in the kit, and all in such pretty colours, would you be able to resist?!?
And I found out that it's actually pretty easy to put on~
After you apply a clear coat base (I always apply a clear coat no matter what colour I'm applying, to make sure it won't stain my nails), apply a coloured base from the kit. I chose this soft metallic pink.
Only do a couple of nails at a time, because while your base is still wet you then pour the pretty little beads over top and they stick in the wet polish.
Just use a tray or something else to catch all the stray beads or you'll end up with a bit of a mess. If you're careful though, most of them will stick to your nails. I had to do a few touch ups on the tips of my nails because the polish had already started to dry but it wasn't difficult.
This is just a fun effect for a special night out. I'm not sure how long it would last in every day life. I do know that you shouldn't pull on your leggings while it's still drying or wash your hands....don't ask me how I know that, I just do.
You don't have to put a clear coat overtop but it doesn't hurt to add it to help keep things in place.
You can get similar kits that have foil or flocked finishes that I haven't tried yet. I don't usually get too crazy about my nails because I can never grow mine very long. But I recently came across some strengthener that that is really working wonders.
How about you? Do you have fun with different nail finishes? Is a trip to the manicurist a regular thing for you? Leave a comment below~
