CURRENT HOT FASHION TREND FOR YOUR FINGERS!
|ESSIE - PLAY DATE|
Texture seems to be a big trend right now with nails. The inspiration behind the Caviar Manicure is to give your fingers a 3-dimensional look, that isn’t too big on your nails. These tiny beads are applied directly to the nail. The finished effect gives your nail an instant enhanced look.
|$25.00 AT SEPHORA|
You can get this look a few ways. Sephora has a caviar kit called Ciate. It contains a base polish, a bottle of beads and a funnel for returning all loose beads back in the bottle. It also comes with a tray to catch the beads when you are sprinkling them on your nails. The price for this is $25.00.
|MICHAELS CRAFT STORE - $7.00|
A less expensive way to get the look is to get the beads from Michaels craft store. I got 6 bottles of different colored beads for $7.00. I already have a base coat, so this is clearly the better deal.
I tried this with a few colors and it's not really that hard to do. I think it looks better if you paint your nails the same color as the beads you will put on. You just paint your nails, then sprinkle the beads on your nail and press with your finger or a small makeup brush. Shake off the excess. Wait until they dry and then apply a top coat to the free edge of your nail or just dab on the top coat-(not brush) on top of the nail. If you brush it on, you will probably loose the beads or the color will come off of the beads.

Is it worth taking the time to do this? I would say if you have the time, it's definately a head turner, but my recommendation would be to do this last before you are out of the door. You will also need a solid 20 minutes for this to dry.
