Beads/ Caviar Nail Art – Step By Step Tutorial With Pictures
Beads nail art design or caviar nail art design, as it is popularly known, has been a very famous nail trend since last year. Caviar manicure was first introduced by a UK beauty brand. They came out with a kit containing a nail polish and similarly colored beads. To get the manicure, you need to paint your nails with the given polish and stick really tiny beads on them. Unfortunately, these kits are not available yet in India. Secondly, the exorbitant price charged for these kits may be a major turn-off for most of us. But that does not mean this trend is going to go untried. A number of online stores sell these beads at great prices. Here is a simple and girly version of this nail trends 2013. You can also directly pour the beads on your nails when the polish is wet, but the method I follow is far simpler. Be sure to have a piece of paper to work on while using these beads in case you accidentally spill them. Ready to learn how to do it ?? Let’s begin :
- Hot pink nail polish
- Copper, bronze, purple, pink, green and silver tiny beads
Step 1: Apply any bright pink polish to all your nails. I am wearing 3 coats of Essie Jam ‘n’ Jelly. I have done three coats to cover any visible nail line, but 2 should work well. Let it dry completely.
Step 2: Mix equal quantities of the beads in the colours mentioned above in a medicine measuring cup.
Step 3: Apply a thick coat of a quick drying topcoat (I use Revlon ) to your ring finger nail. While it is wet, quickly dip the nail in to the beads and remove. If some areas seem bare, dip the nail again. Done !!
Step 4: Seal the beads with topcoat when completely dry to avoid fall-off. The topcoat might make the beads lose a bit of their shine, but that is unavoidable if you want them to last long. For a single day wear, skip the topcoat. If you are adventurous enough, apply the beads on all your nails. You can also mix and match different colors as per your liking or go for a completely different color on the accent nail. In that case, paint the accent nail in the color of your beads eg. gold polish for gold beads. Go for a light accent with dark colors or for a funky festive look, apply gold and silver beads alternatively on each nail.
So grab your favorite polish and a set of beads and start caviar-ing your mani. What colors are you planning to try this easy nail art designs??
