DIY caviar textured nails

See also

Textured manicures are a cool and fashionable nail trend. They are not only artistic and interesting but also very simple to do on your own. Of the most popular textured nails trends, caviar nails have definitely stood out.

If you’d like to recreate a caviar looking manicure without an expensive nail kit, you can do so in a few simple steps. You’ll need a nail polish of your choice and a pack of micro beads. Micro beads come in all different colors and can likely be found at a craft store near you.

  • To begin, apply a coat of nail polish as you normally would. Allow it to dry completely and add a second coat for full, even coverage.
  • Before the second coat of nail polish dries completely, pour the micro beads onto your fingernails. The wet nail polish will act as an adhesive and the beads will stick to the nail once they touch the wet surface.
  • Make sure to pour the beads until they cover the entire surface of each fingernail, then gently tap any access beads off. Allow your manicure to dry completely and you’re all done.

This is one example of a nail look that does not finish off with a top coat. It is best to skip the top coat step, as any coating over the beads will take away from the textured look.
