DIY 'Caviar' Nails Tutorial 2

This is a much less 'high maintenance' look that still looks lovely but doesn't require as much effort and actually lasted a lot longer for me. 

I decided to use Barry M Gelly hi-shine nail paint in Pomegranate. I bought these microbeads on eBay for around 1.00. I just used Kiss diamond hard base coat to improve the condition of my nails. 

I painted 2 thin coats of polish on my nails after the base coat. Whilst the second layer was still wet I sprinkled the beads over my ring finger on both hands. I then gently pressed down to set them into the polish. I chose not to use top coat because I had used such a high shine polish. Feel free to do so! Top coat will prolong the life of your manicure but make sure you dab not paint the varnish on over the microbeads. Otherwise their colours will bleed together. not pretty. 

what do you think of this manicure?
