I had heard about this "Nail Caviar" idea but it wasn't until a couple of days ago that I found such thing at a local Walmart. It was the only box on the shelf. I looked all over for more (and for the price) but couldn't find anything. Well I brought it home with me. I was curious. Here is what I call the Abnormal View of the caviar rocks. This is as close as I could get in zooming. No one sees your nails like this of course (these are nails not diamonds!), but it gives you cosmetics fans a pretty good idea of how small the beads are. I forgot to mention the Nail Rock Nail Caviar set comes with a bottle of nail polish also. This one came with a gold polish that I didn't use for this manicure. The instructions are simple.
First polish your nail as usual and then dip your fingernail in the jar of beads so the entire nail is coated with them. Then you press the beads gently into the wet polish on your nails. Pressing ever so gently work the beads over the entire nail. It is not hard to do at all. I used a light, jelly, pink nail polish under my beads this time around. I did not use top coat on the beads. They felt glued enough to the nail really ast. I wore this manicure and went about my day to see how it would last. I expected beads to be falling off my fingernail all over the place. It did happen, but not as bad as I thought it would be. Some came off when I shampooed my hair and when I washed my hands, but I was left with plenty of rocks to last another round.
