Ever since I've see the Ciate Caviar Nails popping up on Instagram and all around, I've been absolutely lusting over them. But at 25 dollars a pop, I just couldn't justify buying. The other day I was at my local Michael's looking for chains and jewelry supplies, and I found myself looking at the scrapbook section. I was looking at the glitter and stumbled upon these.
Ciate Caviar beads are really just scrap booking micro beads. The package of six was 7 dollars. They had the one I purchased of neutrals, as well as brights. Here's my tutorial on how to do your own three dimensional nail art! Have Fun!
Here's What You'll Need;
Clear Base Coat
Nail Polish Color of Your Choice
Scrap booking Micro beads
Clear Top Coat
-Paint on your base coat and let dry.
-Paint on one coat of your nail polish. I used black. Let dry.
-This next part needs to be done on each finger individually.
-Paint a second coat of polish and dip finger in the micro beads.
(I just dumped mine out in a small pile, but you could always stick your finger in the container,
or pour them over your finger over a tray)
-Press the beads lightly down to secure them, but be careful not to press your finger too hard or it will smudge
(and if you are like me, you'll just have to erase that nail and start that one over)
-Brush off excess and let dry.
-Paint a thin swipe of top coat but only at the tip of the nail.
(be careful and only do the tips, it can smudge the pigment)
-To get extra beads back into your container, a funnel works wonderfully!
Admire your new caviar on a budget nail art. Next time I am planning on doing an accent nail, or half and half colors. Also, I think the clear would look good not only on white, but bright colors as well!
