I may be a bit late to the party, but I have finally jumped on the bandwagon – I’ve caved to the ‘caviar’ nail trend.
I must admit, when I first saw this trend cropping up, I was in two minds. The first product I saw like this was the Ciate Caviar Manicure, and while it all looked very exciting, I wasn’t prepared to drop £18.
I just thought to myself that it looked like a rather messy affair, and I figured I’d give it a miss.
The MUA Nail Constellations are exactly the same concept, but with a much lower price tag. Retailing at just £3, they are considerably more affordable. I just had to give it a try!
A few weeks ago I was browsing Superdrug on my dinner break, and I spotted these Nail Constellations on the MUA stand. There were only a few left, so I grabbed Scorpio and headed to the tills.
To apply, I first painted my nails with a few coats of white nail polish, poured a little bit out of the bottle into a cap lid big enough to fit my fingers in, and dunked. I brushed off the excess onto a sheet of paper, so I could just roll it up and pour it straight back into the bottle – not nearly as messy as I’d feared.
I absolutely love the way it looks – it reminds me of putting sprinkles on my ice cream as a kid!
I can’t say that I see it lasting forever on my nails, and I’ll probably be finding tiny beads in strange places for the next few days, but it’s definitely a lot of fun, and I’d recommend checking these out for something a bit different!
