Wonder no longer! I found this product so easy to use!
It was my birthday recently, and seeing as I LOVE nail art, most of my friends bought me nail polish. I was so excited to try using this nail caviar because I'd seen it around, but never bothered buying it. I tend to stick to hand-painted designs and stamps on my own nails, so this was a new area for me.
It's really simple to use:
1) Firstly, paint all your nails with one coat of your chosen colour, and allow it to dry.
2) Get two pieces of paper ready by folding them in half to create a channel. This way you can pour excess pearls back into the pot, but you can do the same over and over again, alternating the two sheets under one another, because this particular bottle has such a small neck that some bounce back out again.
3) On your second coat, immediately pour caviar onto the nails you want coated. I only did one nail on each hand because I do quite a lot with my hands and didn't want it to fall off fast, seeing as I didn't know how well it would stick.
4) You can then gently press the pearls (as bourjois calls them) onto your nail with a dry and clean finger, and pick up some that have fallen off and press them into any spaces, so that there are no odd gaps on the nail.
5) Leave the pearls/caviar to set into place for a few minutes before sealing with a clear topcoat. When this is dry to the touch, apply another coat to fill in the gaps between the pearls and create a sort of sheet. This will stop individual pearls around the edges from falling off.
The only problem is you have to try not to knock your nails until the caviar has set.
I found using this technique kept the pearls on for 4 days before they started to fall off! I expected them to last one day tops!
Love it! And if you're not sure, try it anyway! :D
