NOTD: Caviar Manicure

Barry M Pink Flamingo 305
Essie 3 Way Glaze
Micro Beads (here)

You'll probably have realised by now that I love Caviar manicure! Not only is it eye-catching and unique, it is amazingly quick and simple to do! I like to do it on one accent nail as I think any more than that would be too hard to pull off for an "everyday" nail. I find the beads last a good few hours, and even after they've fallen off, they leave a silver imprint on the nail, which gives you a polka-dot effect! Just a little word of warning with the microbeads: don't put a top coat over them, they'll discolour. I found this out the hard way! I do like to put a top coat on the base colour before adding the microbeads though, and the Essie 3 Way Glaze is fantastic! For my tutorial post on the caviar manicure, click here.
