Caviar Nails x2

I finally got my own caviar manicure set! :D I know I'm so late with this trend, but better late than never right. I actually found myself a set of four different Ciaté mini-polishes and caviar pearls as a promotion during the Shopping Festival (I should actually do a post about that, I got so much cool new stuff... :D), altogether 195 dhs (roughly 40€) from Sephora. I don't know if I would've been able to find these cheaper online, but since I hate ordering stuff, I always try to find what I want from actual shops... If that even makes any sense. :'D So yeah, here they are:

the caviar polishes from left to right: fit for a queen, pom pom, knickerbockerglory and sand dune.

Aren't they adorable? :D Some close-ups:

I actually decided to share these with my sister, since it was then four polishes each. I kept the polishes and the pearls which you can see in the photo above. :)
Here's my first caviar manicure:

I used knickerbockerglory polish and candyshop pearls.
I like. :) The little caviar pearls are so cute! I messed up my ring finger a bit with top coat, I know it's not necessary, but I figured it might keep the beads in place for longer. Well, maybe so, but it also took some colour away... Learnt my lesson there. I was expecting these to start coming off quite soon, but surprisingly they lasted for a week, only a few came off! Then I also did my sister's nails:

For her nails I used my pink Skinfood polish,  except on her left ring finger, in which I used the golden Ciaté polish, and the holographic caviar pearls. This was a bit of an experiment, just to see how the beads work on different polishes. I must say I like it on both polishes! :)

Love them! :D
Oh, one last thing: I finally joined Instagram! :'D Follow me for daily pics of things I like, my art & nail-art!

See you all soon x
