Budget Caviar Manicure

While in Superdrug picking up some last minute holiday essentials with my friend, we spotted the MUA Nail Constellations

These are the perfect budget solution to Ciate's Caviar Manicure. I picked them up in the colour Gemini to test, and I must say, they didn't disappoint. The price difference is amazing, MUA costing a mere £3 compared to Ciate's £18! Although with Ciate's version you do get a matching nail varnish, which you don't with MUA. But any nail varnish works great with these beads. 

I chose to use an Essie nail polish in the colour Bahama Mama. I was really impressed with how easy this manicure was to apply. I envisioned a messy affair, but it was reasonably quick and easy! 

I started by painting my nail with the nail polish, then sprinkled the Nail Constellations all over my nail until it was completely covered. I shook off the excess then moved on to the next nail while it dried. After a couple of minutes, I pressed slightly on the beads to ensure they were all stuck fast.

I really love the finished result, I think they look great, and for the price, it's fantastic! I sprinkled the beads on to my nail over a bowl, that way you can pour the unused beads back in to the bottle. There's enough beads for dozens of applications. I will definitely be purchasing some other colours, they look great for the christmas party season!

Has anyone ever tried either the MUA or Ciate version? One things for sure, I'm definitely sold on the Caviar Manicure.
