Get a DIY Clear micro beads manicure tutorial

  • Base coat
  • Opaque nail polish (no shimmer)
  • Clear micro beads (available at most craft stores—we snagged our jar for three dollars!)
  • Top coat
  1. apply a clear base coat on completely bare nails.
  2. apply one coat of no-shimmer white polish onto your nails and let them dry.
  3. Apply a generous second coat of color to one hand, and let the polish get tacky for 10 seconds.
  4. over a sheet of paper, a cup, or a plastic tray, pour the microbeads over your nail bed, ensuring you coat the entire surface of your nail bed like glitter over glue.
  5. use the pad of your finger to press and secure the caviar beads.
  6. then apply a tiny drop of top coat along your nail tip to seal the Clear micro beads.
