I Scream for Icecream: Layla Caviar Effect Nail Art

A featured item was sent to me to review but as always will contain my full and honest opinion :)

Allo polish Pals,
Did you have a great weekend? I spent my weekend visiting the market and having a swatch-a-thon in preparation for my visit to England – there will be scheduled posts while I'm away. I can tell you my nails are looking as forward to this break as I am! Today I have Layla's 'Caviar Effect Nail Art' to show you, this is my first time using caviar beads. I must have been hiding under a rock.

 
 
 
As you can see Layla 'Caviar Effect Nail Art' beads are incredibly tiny, perfect in size for adhering to the nail bed. As this was my first time I was unsure what to expect when it came to application but the inside of the bottle has a dandy plastic stopper thing that controls how much you pour out. I decided to pour over a tacky topcoat with my finger in a plastic cup to spare any wastage of the beads that didn't hit the nail.

The colour of the beads is a real mixture! Looking at the bottle and moving it in the light baffles me as it could well be there are only three colours in the bottle, but looking at my pictures I see all shades of beads! The most striking colours to stand out are pinks, golds and greens. I think it creates a wonderful 'sprinkle' effect in my eyes ~ Just perfect for ice cream! Overall these where a really fun experience and such a simple way to add some 'pow' to a manicure, I recommend Layla's Caviar beads!

For the entire manicure: I started with two coats of Color Clubs 'Normadic In Nude'. I then stamped using the CH11 with Konad's 'Special White' polish. On my pinkie I added melting chocolate around the cuticle using a nail art brush and Golden Rose's '28'. On my remaining fingers I applied a cloud effect using China Glaze's 'Pinkie Promise, Golden Rose's '28' and Models Own 'Banana Split'.

What do you guys think of this look, have you tried caviar beads before? What do you think, hit or miss?
Have a great day!
Love
Ithi

  1. Hi Ithi, your mani looks Yummy!! Great manicure, I love all the detailed, you got a perfect Ice cream look! I only wore beads once and not for a whole nail look, I guess I should try.
    Have fun and enjoy your trip back home!

    1. Thank you so much Natalia! I thought one finger with beads was enough as I'm still getting used to the texture but you should certainly try a whole nail! Thank you, I think it will be great to see everybody again! :)
