Caviar nail art is the next cool trend from Europe and I think it will cause quite a buzz around here. In Europe, nail artists are applying black seed beads to nails…and yes, it looks just like caviar. Cool, right? But I thought, how about applying the seed beads in a colored pattern, instead of just solid black? So, I created pink and white zebra stripes with micro seed beads and I love it. Let’s get started!

Pink Metallic Micro Seed Beads
Remove your old polish, file and buff your nails. Apply a clear basecoat and let dry.
Step 1: Apply a coat of Opaque White Polish and let dry. You only need one coat, because you will be covering it up with beads.
Step 2: Paint a small swatch of clear basecoat and begin applying pink micro seed beads with the tweezers in a random stripe pattern. I began in the middle of the nail, so I could build the pattern around it. Add more clear base coat as needed to stick the seed beads to the nail.
Step 3: Continue making your pink pattern until you have covered the nail or are happy with the look.
Step 4: Fill in between the pink pattern with the white pearl micro seed beads, and let dry.
Step 5: Cover the entire nail with 2 coats of topcoat and you are finished.
Tip: you can use regular see beads, however, your pattern will have less detail and be slightly bulky.
This look takes a little bit of time and patience, and you might not want to bead all of your nails, but it makes a great accent nail. Have fun beading !
Until next time…..keep those nails covered.
