I used the micro marbles I showed you in the Nail Jewels post and some masking tape
Here's a step by step
|assemble together your bits n bobs|
|cut your pieces of tape|
|mask off where you will want the beads to stick|
|cut the corner off a plastic bag and pour beads in. Dip nail in|
|repeat using any design you like. I like the moon detail|
|still with finger in bag use a cocktail stick to tidy up beads|
|A tricky one, Only attempt if you've got all kinds of time to spend doing this|
|Go back in and fill in gaps. Use a cocktail stick dipped in water to pick them up individually|
I went over the non beaded nails with matte top coat
And you're done.
Let me know how you get on
Even though I was very careful, the surface colour of the beads started to wear off after about an hour.
