Sorry I’m a bit late posting this, but at least I’m not missing it! Today I have ‘Caviar’ from my untrieds list. Although I wouldn’t class it as nail art, it involves sticking things to my nails and I’ve never tried it before! I only ended up doing one nail because, even though I tried to control them, this is the aftermath of one application….
Anyway, I used Models Own ‘nail beads’ on my index finger over Barry M Espresso, a matte black. I also painted my pinkie with this and used Barry M Rose Hip for the other nails. All finished off with Barry M’s Matte Topcoat.
The way I applied these was once my nail polish was dry I popped on a top coat (Barry M Matte Topcoat) and when it was still wet poured some of the nail beads over my finger and lightly pressed them on to help them stay fixed. I kind of like the look but I don’t think it’s very wearable… Beads will fall off and you’ll end up with lots of gaps. Also it’s a bit too textured for me and kept catching on things.. It’s safe to say they didn’t last long!

I know I keep saying this, but I feel like I need to reiterate it. I’m sorry I’m not very regular with my blog OR my Instagram at the moment. I really am trying to keep up but I currently have a stack of coursework that needs finishing by various dates in early December, one of which is my dissertation. My blog is important to me but currently I’m putting uni first! I hope no one minds!
