Caviar Nails

I keep seeing Caviar Nails on Pinterest.  I wanted to try them, but not at the hefty price tag that the kits cost.  So I picked up some microbeads from Michael's.  

Basecoat of Instra Dry "Lively Lilac".  Then I poured on the beads, pressed them in, and then did another coat.  I then did a top coat on my plain nails of Sinful "Purple Diamond".  I also did a top coat of Seche Vite on the microbeads.

Blurry closeup of the microbeads.


I've liked doing gradients since I first learned how.  Here are 2 recent ones:

1. Gradient done with Revlon "Grape" and Sinful "I Love You".  Then stamped in black with Cheeky plate CH8.

2. Base of OPI "Candid Cameron", then gradient of OPI "Candid Cameron", Sinful "Midnight Blue", and Color Show "Bold Gold".
