A Flash of Caviar

Hi everyone!!  Today is the very last day of my twenties!!!  My husband saw this little gem of a polish and gave it to me as an early gift, so I really wanted to use it today.


I started off with three coats of Sally Hansen Firefly ...


... a beautiful amber multi-chrome with flashes of gold, green, and bronze.  I followed it with one coat of SV.  Since there were so many color flashes in Firefly, I decided to go with a fun and colorful accent.


I used an older bottle of SV on my ring fingers, since the formula had thickened up quite a bit.


I then created the caviar effect using Colorful Microbeads from KKCenterHK by pouring them from the vile on top of my nail, using the provided tray to catch the excess beads.  Once the nail was covered, I lightly pressed them onto my nail to ensure their security.


For a little extra, I used the vertical heart design from my Nailz Craze stamping plate NC-01 with Konad Special Black.


I applied one final coat of SV to all my non-caviar nails.


I had a lot of fun playing with the microbeads today!  I hope you enjoyed it as well!

Happy Painting!
