Claire's Accessories Nail Pearls

These are Claire's Accessories version of the caviar mani - Nail Pearls. These are normally £5, but I got these on a 2-for-1 a few weeks ago.

These come in a tiny bottle with a teeny weeny cute little funnel for putting the spare beads back in afterwards. I tipped the beads out into the plastic wrapping, and dipped my wet nail in.

Here are the black beads with Illamasqua Scorn. I love Scorn - this is one coat. I love the rubbery satin finish.  I also really like how the black beads look like those jelly blackberry sweets you can get, the ones with teeny tiny crunchy balls all over them.

I wasn't happy with just the black though, so I painted alternate nails gold (Barry M Gold Foil) and added the gold beads.

I like how these pearls are very tiny. The beads I've tried previously (MUA) were a bit larger and bulkier.  These are a lot neater and less lumpy.

  2. They're cool, the gold is surprisingly restrained though. I'd kind of like to see a proper blingy shiny gold pearl mani.
