Yesterday I attended an evening of pampering at Raffles in Chelsea (which I will blog about separately, as the food, drinks and clothes deserve their own posting!) This post however, Is on the Caviar manicure that I had from the lovely girls at Cité!
I actually saw a girl with these in the original black at an event a few months ago and I have to say I wasn't too sure I liked them, but when I had the chance to try them out last night, I thought I may as well and actually me and the friends that came with me all liked them!
This is what we are talking about - tiny coloured pearls which, when poured over wet nail polish and gently patted in stick to your nail to create a 3D nail polish. The range comes in a multitude of colours and takes no longer to put on than a regular manicure, it is also apparently easy to remove with regular nail polish remover (although I have yet to try this - if its anything like glitter I'm not so sure!)
A caviar rainbow!
Ever the indecisive one, I went for a red base and rainbow beads, and I'm quite a fan of my 'cupcake' nails!

Hundreds and Thousands anyone?
Georgia went for the goth option - the original 'Caviar' nails.

So there you have it, much posing with nails covered in tiny little beads! It's basically a fun manicure that has carried on getting a mixed bag of comments today but yes, I would definitely try them again... A word of warning though - a few of the beads have fallen off since last night so I would say it's better to buy the do it at home Kit's. That way you can do retouching and not be wandering around with semi caviar nails as I am now - after washing my hair and rifling around in my handbag all day...
