Easy peasy Wednesday!  Didn’t really go into this with a gameplan, and then needed to wrap it up right quick after something came up, so this really was a low-investment number.  Started with a two coat base of OPI My Very First Knockwurst and then added little black bullion balls to the upper half of the nail.  Sealed it down with SV and then thought it needed a bit more, so went over with a coat of Cherimoya Pink Soiree — it’s got a bright pink jelly base to it so it shifted the muted pink of the OPI a fair bit, but still looked purdy.  Didn’t have time to do another topcoat so that’s all there was to it!

Things are kinda bonkers in Nerd world right now (shooting for a legal hat trick, it’s exhausting and I’m super cranky about it) but I’m hoping to get caught up on emails tonight/tomorrow — thanks for your patience, hope everybody’s having a great Wednesday!

    I love this & have been wanting to try something similar. Ciate has those little Caviar Nails kits, but they’re so expensive!

      I just wanted to tell you that you can buy microbeads off of ebay, for like 3.00 that are the exact same thing that Ciate uses. They also come in like 12 different colors (you get all 12 with your 3.00 purchase) So you use polish you already have and the beads off of ebay, cost close to nothing. :)

    Love these! They certainly don’t look like you did them quickly. I love pale pink and black together.
