Trend Alert: At Home Caviar Manicure.
The hottest nail art trend this year is the Caviar Nail. The Caviar trend is using a Glass Micro-Bead as a top coat, creating a glamourous and luxe effect. This look is great for special occasions or when you just want to be extra fabulous. Here is the simple steps of how to create your own at home Caviar nail art look.
1. Apply a clear base coat.
2. Apply a coat of a full coverage base color that coordinates with the same color as your beads. Nail polishes with no shimmer that are more opaque work best.
3. Apply a generous, thick second coat of your polish one finger at a time and sprinkle the glass micro-beads on your nail. (A best practice is to have a bowl beneath to catch all of the micro-bead fall out from your nail.)
4. Press the beads gently in to set, then move on to the next nail.
This fashion forward manicure will last between 24-48 hours for your special occasion and will turn heads!
