Ciate Caviar Manicure

Sephora has just announced a new product called the Ciate Caviar Manicure, $25. It's a kit  that comes with one .45oz.  nail polish and one .47oz caviar beads, a funnel, and a tray. The polish color options are: Strawberry Milkshake (light pink) with Rainbow beads, Snow Virgin (white), with Mother of Pearl beads or Ghetto Fabulous (black) combined Black Pearls beads.  You apply the bead-free polish on first and then while the paint is still wet, apply the beads, let set for at least 15 minutes. The pearlescent beads create a 3D effect and the manicure lasts for 48 hours.

The beads remind me of  the sprinkles that you use for ice cream sundaes or little sugar balls used to decorate cakes. I really want the Strawberry Milkshake and Rainbow beads. I wish I was more skilled with nail art. They always end up looking like my baby niece did them. But this nail art might be simplistic enough even for me and I'll look more artisic and cooler than I really am :) If you're feeling bold and looking to spice things up, click here. Let me me how it turned out for you, send me a picture through twitter!

How To Apply


For us gals on a budget and can't justify spending $25 on Sephora's kit, I did some digging around for a more affordable "knock-off"option. I came across Martha Steward's Micro beads 12 pack of various colors for $12.73 through Sears (other stores like Joann sells the same beads for almost TWICE as much). You can also run to your local grocery store and pick up some edible beads used for baking, still works and taste yummy! A tip: apply a thin layer of top coat along the tip of the nail to create a seal.

Are you adventurous with nails or do you keep it simple?
