WHITE FISH EGG MANI DISASTER

I ordered "micro" beads in white about a week ago and I was very disappointed to see that they were not the size I wanted. They are too big for the lovely fish egg/caviar manicure I have done before and the final effect looks a little bit weird. Perhaps like a nail disease/fungus? it could work on a photoshoot for a Snow Queen, but not in real life. Oh my... According to my husband it looks more like polystyrene :) haha.

The seller advertised the beads as "white caviar beads in ciate caviar manicure style" .... I don't think so! The size difference is huuuuuge!

I sprinkled some glitter dust on top, I couldn't resist it, haha :) The photos are cool though.


And here is my previous caviar manicure, that was a success CLICK

  3. Holy crap! That's so cool. I wouldn't want to touch anything, though, I'd be so afraid to mess them up. And my husband would kill me if I left a trail of tiny beads through the house haha!

  6. I see what the hubby means about looking like polystyrene balls. I was excited when I first heard about the caviar manicure but I've heard so many negative comments about them now I'm totally put off xx

  10. Wow, how long have you take to do this? Looks a bit difficult (I imagine one nail at a time), at least for me. But they look funny and you were very creative! Also, it's not a disaster if you did everything fine and the "caviar's" size is wrong! :)

  16. Ooh they do look a little like polysterene haha but I think it's just cause they're white beads, maybe you could paint a coat of colour over the top? I love the fish eggs one though! xx
