New Years Eve Nails!

Monday, December 31, 2012
I received a Caviar nails set for Christmas and I was dying to try it out - so I thought that news years would be a great time to test it out! 
The first thing I did was paint the nail I wanted to decorate with the silver polish. The Ciate silver polish looks really beautiful and it looks like a foil/metallic cover over the nails. I just painted one thick coat on the single nail first - then I tipped the beads onto the nail with a plastic tray under my hand to collect the stay beads. I would suggest you open the bead bottle in the tray too as some beads did come out when I opened the bottle. 

After I painted the nail and cover it with the tiny silver, dark grey and bright pink beads I then gently pressed the beads into the nail polish - the nail polish has the be wet. Be really careful when pressing down on the beads as they can move around and stick to your finger if you press too hard. Also the beads can get every where so you have to be really gentle and slow when using the beads. 
After I pressed on the beads I then carefully painted the rest of my nails with the silver polish and let it all dry. On the leaflet that came with the set, it says to leave the polish/beads to dry for at least 15-20 minutes. After 15 minutes I checked the polish and then I applied my Seche Vite top coat to all of my nails, but only the tips of the nails with the beads on. There is the final result! I am really happy with the way it tuned out, especially as this is my first time using the Ciate Caviar nail kits. 


  1. I absolutely love the way these look! I need to try them myself =)did you have to be careful with them or did they stay on well?

    Now following you lovely!

    1. I was careful with them and they still came off quite easily! I had them on for about ten to twelve hours and about half the beads have come off one finger - Overall, I like this set and it looks nice but the longevity isn't good.

      Thank you for following my blog! x

  2. It looks so lovely on your nails...especially with the base colour! I only have the MUA version but they are such a nice, easy way to jazz up your nails. xx

  3. I really want to try these, but I can't decide whether they would last long on me. I think I would want to pick them off! Happy new year! :)

  4. Your nails look really cool!

  5. All things sparkly for NYE are a must!! Super cute! xx
