Introducing Caviar Nails – The Next Nail Trend You’ll be Beading + How-To Video

March 27, 2012  |  

Nail trends are a dime a dozen these days, but the “Caviar Manicure” might give current faves like ombre nails and magnetic polish a run for their money. Caviar nails first appeared last fall during the edgy Cushnie et Ochs’ runway show, and have been on nail art lovers’ radars ever since. To achieve the look is actually a fairly simple DIY project. One could easily grab their favorite nail polish, purchase small beads from their local craft store, and have a field day. Yet, UK nail polish brand, Ciate, has decided to make achieving the look even easier with their innovative “Caviar Manicure” kits. The kits are a one-stop-shop as they consist of a nail lacquer and beads. Presently, you have your pick of three colors – multi (rainbow), white (mother of pearl), and black (black pearls). We’re sure more hues will be offered as demand increases. The kits will be available in the US this April at your friendly, neighborhood Sephora.

Doubt you can create the look yourself? Don’t worry, with each kit, Ciate includes the following instructions:

Still clueless? Watch the video below to view a Caviar Manicure being performed.

We like! Over at Fashionista, they’re wondering if this three-dimensional trend will be the new glitter. Maybe. Maybe not. One thing for certain is that, like its sparkly counterpart, it will be a pain in the neck to remove. Still, what’s a little extra elbow grease in exchange for some fly digits?

Are you excited to try the caviar manicure? Give us your thoughts in the comments!

    I tried it it takes forever to get them on it does look niice tho I wish there WAs an easier way to make ur nails not look awkward shaped wen the beads fall out along eadges

    To make this much easier and to last much longer, pair the caviar beads with the gelish or shellac product. Pour the beads into a very small bowl, after polishing the nail with the desired color (following gelish protocol), Apply top coat and have the client curl their finger and dip her nail into the beads and rock her finger from side to side. Then knock away any stray beads and use an orhangewood stick to make sure all beads are in place where you want them. Leave a small hairline gap at the sides of the nail to prevent chipping! Cure. Apply top coat and cure again two more times. It should last as long as a normal Shellac mani! 🙂 I do this with the candy sprinkles and it works perfectly!

    The nails are cute but those lips look downright uncomfortable!

    The novelty on this will wear off quick. It’ll become a huge trend in the US. Other nail companies will try to imitate it. And you’ll see it everywhere and just get sick of it. Like the OPI Shatter polish. Shame, cause I actually like this idea.

      I agree that this design looks really fun and cool, but it definitely won’t stick around too long.  I wish they included some info on how to remove this polish, because something tells me it would take forever!
