Evening all! It's week four of Kimber's Mish Mash Challenge and the theme is a nail art technique that you have never tried before. I chose to do a caviar mani as I just purchased some kits!
I found out about the BYS caviar kits thanks to Haylee from Dry, Dammit! and just had to have the same one that she used: Prom Queen.
I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of the included polish, BYS Prima Ballerina. After the second coat I dipped my ring nail into the pot of beads and then lifted it out. Maybe I had waited too long because there were small gaps where beads had not stuck to the polish.
I was only going to do one nail but then I had a brilliant idea! Make a stencil out of paper in the shape of a heart - foolproof! Wrong - the beads stuck to the paper and the heart shape was all wonky so I ended up coating my nail in beads.
Even though this didn't work out as planned, I liked the look, especially the shade of the polish, it's a lovely neon pastel pink. The beads spent the day falling off and I ended up removing this mani as soon as I got home, but I plan on giving it another go soon!
And now I'm off to check out what the rest of the gang did!
