I’ve Never Seen a Diamond in the Flesh

Wed-nails-day has been missing for a few weeks. I’m shamed to admit this is because my nails haven’t really been painted, another consequence of being so busy.

I spotted a little caviar nail kit in Primark the other week, it was bargain so I thought I’s give it a go. You may have seem the instagram of the kit, I didn’t fancy the silver polish it came with so went for this deep purple instead.20131127-131548.jpgIt’s very easy, you simply paint your nails and pour over the little beads right away while its wet. I forgot how long it takes nail polish to dry but managed not to smudge my purple base coat. photo 1 Instead of a statement nail I wanted a little detail on each. I painted a triangle of top coat at the top and poured the caviar over. I think it looks really cute but I’m intrigued as to how long these will last. When I add details with shellac they last days, not sure that will a the case here.

  1. Mine didn’t last long at all, but I found when they started falling in the pattern left in the nail varnish still look pretty cool.

  2. I really like the look of these on other people, but never tried them myself because I didn’t think they’d last long at all & I knew I’d be sooo tempted to pick them off! May have to pop to Primark & give them a try, nothing to loose at the kind of prices! 🙂

  3. Really love the triangle of detail at the top – I tried the accent caviar nail once and did a really thick coat of clear on top which kind of set it (for about a day and a half before I couldn’t resist picking them all off…)


I love hearing from you, let me know what you think
