Manicure: Raspberry and orange nails

Hey Luuuxers,
here is another microbead manicure :) This time raspberry and orange.

Youll need:

- Microbeads {Either this Martha Stewart set from Michaels, or these from Born Pretty. Jenn said Hobby Lobby nor Joanns had these kinds of beads.}
- Base coat
- Top coat
- Polish color of your choice {I used Make an Entrance {pink} and Sun Worshiper {orange} both by China Glaze}

Simple How To:

- Brush on a base coat. Once dry apply your polish color of choice, as many coats as it takes to be opaque. {I had to use 4 with Sun Worshiper!}
- Next, apply another coat of polish color to the nail you want to bead and while the polish is still wet sprinkle the beads over your nail. {I used a Birchbox lid to catch my extra beads in ;) } Sprinkle until the entire nail is covered.
- Lightly press the beads into the wet polish and allow to dry.
- Add a top coat to any plain polished nails.

Some tips:

Its up to you whether or not you want to add a top coat on the beads. I found that adding one over the beads didnt look as good, but the downside is it wont last long without one. In that case these are good manis for special occasions or a fun night out on the town. {The clear ones look AMAZING over black polish!}

Like I mentioned above, I used a Birchbox lid to catch my extra beads in. Any small rigid container should work, maybe even some Rubbermaid plastic wear. That will keep things neat and youll be able to pour your beads back into your bottle afterward. Dont want to waste any!

So what do you think? Something you would try?
