Today I have some stamping over Caviar Beads to show you!
I didn’t come up with this idea, I saw it somewhere on the internets, and now I can’t find the post anywhere 😦 I would love give credit to who ever it is that came up with this amazing idea! 🙂
I used a Ciate Mini set that has been in my untried pile for ages. the set contains Cookies and Cream Polish and Caviar Pearls called Shooting Star.
Cookies and cream is a nude creme, the colour is similar to a very milky tea, for a light coloured nude polish it’s even too pale for me! I don’t know if it’s because it’s old but the application was an absolute pain! So it’s not one that I’ll be wearing on it’s own. and I’m glad the caviar pearls covered the bunching and the bald spots!
The pearls are a really pretty mixture of mostly gold along with silver, clear and iridescent dotted throughout.
I applied them according to the instructions on the box, and waited for around 20 minutes for them to fully dry.
The stamping plate is Moyou XL Pro 04, I decided on the tiger print as it’s a bold and simple image, I think stamp images with a lot of detail would get lost amongst the pearls!
I stamped over the pearls as I would usually stamp my nails, I did use my extra soft Marshmallow stamper, I don’t think that it would be possible to do this using a firm stamper, without firing the tiny pearls across the room…
I do think this is really pretty, unfortunately it’s clearly not something that would last more than a few hours.

Wow, I’m amazed that the stamping came out over the beads! Looks really cool!

Thank you! 😀 The first time I saw stamping over beads I thought it wasn’t real! and I’m also really surprised that it came out so well! (this is the first time I have tried a caviar mani let alone stamping on one lol)

Now, I REALLY don’t like the look of caviar beads, but this stamping makes it super cool : D

Aw thanks lovely! This is the first time I have tried the beads… I think they look ok, but definitely better with the stamping… My main issue is, it feels horrid, all thick and gritty Oh yeah and I have learned (the hard way) not to type while wearing nail beads. My keyboard is now very crunchy!
