caviar bead nail tutorial: guest post from katlyn @ the dreamy meadow
good. glad to see i'm not completely alone in this.
and i'm also glad you're here. because i have a super simple tutorial today from my friend katlyn at the dreamy meadow on a really cute method for "polishing" your nails! seriously - even i think i could do this... katlyn, the floor is officially yours!
Hey guys! I'm Katlyn from over at The Dreamy Meadow and I am super excited about guest posing on Neathering Our Fest. Skye is a truly amazing lady! Today I'm going to do a little DIY for you all so let's have some fun, shall we?
Have you heard of caviar beads or seen the new fab caviar bead nails? Well I sure have and I am totally in love! So I thought I would show you a small tutorial on how to accomplish the look.
Here's what you are going to need:
Caviar Beads (I used silver, but they come in a million colors)
Nail Polish (I used Armed and Ready by Essie)
Clear Coat (I used Essie)
1. Now I prepared my nails so they would be in mint condition to hold onto the nail polish. I pushed back and trimmed my cuticles and then went ahead and smoothed and buffed them with a 4 sided nail block.
2. Apply the colored nail polish to all of your nails besides your ring finger. Of course you can choose whatever finger your little heart desires. Apply 1-2 coats and allow to dry completely.
3. You then want to apply the clear coat to your chosen finger. Put your hand over the bowl that I told you to get out and gently pour the caviar beads over it. Allow to set and dry for about 5 minutes.
4. Apply clear coat to all of your nails! On your chosen finger allow the clear coat to seep down around the beads to lock them between the two coats.
Ta-Da! You have yourself some snazzy nails! :) Enjoy your new creation!
seriously, coming from one completely illiterate nail polisher, this looks like something i could actually DO. i absolutely love this idea! thanks so much for sharing it today katlyn!!
