Continuing my 'how to' story. =) Fish egg manicure AKA caviar manicure. Ciate creative director came up with the idea of micro beads over nail polish and is very sensitive about the use of word 'caviar' when it's not made with Ciate products. Hence fish egg manicure.
You can buy Ciate Caviar Manicure Kit in three different colors for £18 or you can use any of your nail polish shades and buy some micro beads in any craft/art store for a couple of bucks. The decision is in your hands. This is how I beaded my nails...
1 - Paint your nails with the desired nail polish. Thicker polishes will work better for this.
2 - Prepare your beads and apply another layer of polish.
3 - Dip your nail into the jar with beads while nail polish is still wet.
4 - Arrange the beads on your nails to fit your polish line and press them on the nail gently. Repeat steps on other nails.
I applied a top coat over my fish egg manicure and the color of the beads started to melt. Well, it actually changed color. Interesting, huh?
Fish egg manicure is interesting and quite fun to do, but it's not very practical. I can't see myself wearing it, but I know some of you might like it.
P.S: This is part I on my fish egg mani. Part II is coming soon... =)
What are your thoughts on fish egg/caviar manicure? Would you wear it?
