With apologies for my recent absence (busy busy with the necessities of life, and maybe a bit of hiding out from the horror show that IS life), here is an exceptionally impractical manicure I crafted together out of some cute items I recently purchased from Daily Charme, home of the fun, super obtrusive nail art embellishment. “Crafting” always seems like the right word when it comes to my adventures in 3D nail adornment – there’s always a lot of glue and tweezers and frustrated screaming involved.
For these nails, I laid down a base of two super summery polishes, Picture Polish’s sparkly coral, Paris, and OPI’s pale turquoise, Sailing & Nail-ing, before topping my two middle fingers with a cluster of little clay flowers. I then added a single marigold-hued bullion bead to the centre of each cupped flower (that’s just a very, very tiny gauge of bead) before filling in the spaces around the flowers with lime green beads.
And in case you’re wondering what the life span was on these particular nails, about seven minutes! 🙂

Amazing patience you have! I think the beads were a great addition.
Thank you! I’ve never done the micro bead thing before (can’t call them Caviar beads, right, in case Ciate gets antsy? Although…does anyone either Caviar bead OR Ciate these days?) The beads were super cool, but dang, this mani DID NOT last!
Yeah that was not practical for any wear, but cute pix definitely!
It was weird, I saw multiple posts here recently about bead bling:
Ha, that’s funny. 🙂 I guess these things go in waves. I remember when I first started getting into the nail thing these little beads were all the rage – I once saw a woman STAMP over top of a caviar bead mani; it was bonkers how great it turned out.
