DIY: Caviar Manicure For £4

Hey Ladies,

It seems that Ciaté's release of their Caviar manicure got us all itching for our nails to look like Nobbly Bobbly's as the kits sold out very quickly & I couldn't seem to get a hold of one, which meant with me being me ie. the least patient person in the world a DIY job was my only option, so I thought I'd share the results with you.

You Will Need:
Some sort of mixing dish
Base Coat - Dr Lewinn's Renunail
Nail Polish - Essie Lilacism
Top Coat - Jessica Top Priority
Micro Beads - Ebay 

(I love the word vestibule so used it here!)
I used equal parts of each shade but you can tailor it to however you want
I found leaving the polish to dry for a few seconds helped the look, dip firmly into the beads & really push your nails into them.
I left all the excess beads on the nails & pushed the beads into the polish to help adhere them together
I then removed the excess & gently painted a top coat over the nails.
So there you have an easy Caviar manicure which costs £4 for the beads instead of £18 for the Ciaté kit, personally if you like the look I'd use my method as it's very annoying to have on the nails, I removed mine the morning after as they kept catching in my hair & it was impossible to wash it! For a special occasion I think it looks ace but I wouldn't say it's an everyday style I'll be rocking!!!

Has anyone tried the Ciaté manicure yet? Will you be attempting my DIY version?
