How To: Caviar Manicure
Textured, futuristic, and incredibly decadent! Love the look of the hot caviar manicures? Follow this easy DIY guide to get the look at home for less!
This look can be created with the Ciate at-home caviar manicure kit (recommended) or with your own supplies bought at a craft store. The instructions below apply to both directions.
Follow any manicure prep steps you usually follow such as soaking the hands, filing your nails, and clipping hang nails prior to starting.
Apply a base coat to the nails to protect them. Let dry.
Apply one coat of base nail polish of your choosing. Apply a slightly thin layer and allow to dry completely before proceeding.
Once your first coat is dry, apply a second, thick coat of the same polish to each nail. Allow to dry about 10-20 seconds or until sticky.
Pour the Ciate caviar beads over each nail. You can also pour a small amount of beads onto a plate or bowl and dip your nail into the beads. Press the beads softly into the polish so they stick.
Allow to dry completely. Apply a top coat to the tips of the nail to keep the ends from breaking, and voila!
Try this look on all 10 nails, or just one contrasting nail for a fun twist!
