Hello my reader! I've decided to toss my dubious nail art talents out there and join The Crumpet in her next awesome Laid Back 31 DC. I love following these challenges because it shows me a lot of wonderful art, introduces me to a ton of great blogs and gives me inspiration to perfect my manicures.
I love purple. It's one of my favorite colors. However I had a really hard time coming up with something to do. I surfed the internet for a while looking for something to really jazz me. So I polished, removed, re did and just wasn't happy with anything.
So I went to find a different tool and saw MICROBEADS!! I had picked them up a few weeks ago and forgotten I had them. AND there was purple!! SCORE! So I finally got to do a caviar manicure!! It's surprisingly easy. And it's an interesting look!
For my ring finger I put on one of the OPI's liquid sand "Can't Let Go". You know to change it up a little bit. I love the liquid sand polishes. You can find swatches of them everywhere. The micro beads is the Michael's brand, the color is Heather. I tapped them gently into Julep's Alfre.
Basically what I did was paint a thin coat of Alfre. Then I gave it a little while to dry. Then I applied a thick layer of the polish. While it was still wet I pressed a slightly damp finger into a bowl of the micro beads and lightly pressed them into my nail. To get a thick compact of beads, I picked up more beads and tapped them against the wet nail. Then I went over it with a top coat. To give it some extra glue.
It looks very cool!! I would love to go out with this look. I think when I go to Vegas I might go out with these one night.
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I'm looking forward to see what the others do for the 31 day challenge.
