ACCESSORIZE 4D 'CAVIER' NAILS IN LILAC SORBET REVIEW AND HOW TO

I've used the 'Caviar' technique before, but using the beads from a local craft store. This is the first Accessorize beauty product I'd used, and was pretty excited. The beads came in a little container with a pointed applicator which was perfect for applying the beads, it's pretty much identical to the MUA packaging. The nail varnish 'Lilac Sorbet' wasn't bad quality. It only took 2 coats to achieve a good colour, but I felt I was waiting a while for it to dry - I'm not the most patient of people! You can get these sets for £5 from Superdrug - And I do believe they're on a special offer at £3, which is a bargain for a nail varnish AND some nail art beads.
To start using this set, I first took away the front of the plastic packaging as I thought it was ideal for catching  the left over beads. I simply painted my nail with the two coats it recommended, put my nail over the tray and then shook the beads all over the nail until it was fully covered. It took about 10 minutes to fully dry.
It was so easy putting the remains back in the pot too, the tray was a perfect size to tip all the beads back in. After I'd done that I then found a clear nail varnish and just went slightly over the tips of the beaded nail, just to secure the beds in case the end of the nail got caught. This is such and easy thing to do, and makes your nails look amazing in minutes. In the past, 'Caviar Nails' only lasted me up to 2-3 days before the beads started to fall off, so it's not the most sustainable nail look. Overall this look took my about 15 minutes, including drying time, so if you have time to spare, this is such a fun look to do. I loved the finished look. It was very girly and somehow reminded me of sweets! I love this innocent look, and it really catches the eye. I can't wait to wear these out and show my claws off! There are many bead nail kits out there, and I really enjoyed using this. At the moment they are £3, so it's hard not to say no. Let me know in the comments what you think of this trend, and if you've ever tried it. Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Ooh I'm incredibly tempted to try this myself. I've been trying to get back into nail art but I'm always rushed for time, but this seems very time efficient and effective!

  5. I love the combination of the pink polish with the beads! It looks like a cupcake! :D I like the caviar trend but I'm not sure that I could wear it because I am such a texture person that I would end up just rubbing my fingers on my nail all day! I'm doing that with my glitter polish from my last nail of the day post! Great post!

  9. Using the plastic tray to catch the beads is simply genius! I tried this look but it didn't even last 1 day due to my job. It's a very pretty look for a night out though.
