MUA Nail Constellation in Pisces £3

I wanted to talk to you today about these babies. Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months you'll already know about caviar nails, the tiny beads that make nail art relatively simple. MUA launched their own much cheaper range a few months ago and while I was always planning on picking some up, I was hesitant. You see, apart from a glitter tip or accent nail, I don't do nail art. I'm bad at it. I'm bad enough at painting my nails let alone actually adding extras. These seemed simple and so I took the plunge and bought a few. So glad I did.

They're very easy to use for one. I painted on two coats of NARS nail varnish (you can use any but I chose NARS as it was the best colour as a base) and sprinkled the beads on top of the wet second coat. Press them down, add a top coat (I used MUA) and put the rest of the beads back in the tube. You're done. Simple, right?

You see, in hindsight maybe I should have filled a bowl up with the beads and dipped my nail in as my blanket is currently covered in labrador hair and beads from where I couldn't get them all off and my dog tried to eat them. Can't be healthy. Alas, if I'm going to be ill my nails are going to look pretty and pretty they do!

What are your thoughts on MUA Nail Constellations or caviar nails in general?

    1. They are just so pretty. My first time was messy so I'm going to try to remove them and do them again on a pale pink base tonight & buy more next week.

  2. I also purchased some of these! Such a bargain compared to the Ciate Nail Caviar Set! Gutted how quickly they come off though and how annoyed my boyfriend was when his bed was full of them - oops!

    1. Mine lasted two days and they are horrible to remove. I literally had to pick mine off. Not for every day wear! xo
