Day 3 - Ciate Girl With A Pearl

This little bottle contains half pearl shapes. I placed them over Color Club Blue-topia. I poured a few of the pearls out and turned them the right way round. I then placed them on the wet nail - I used a top coat then quickly placed them on the wet top coat and gently pressed them down. I used a pair of tweezers to lift and place them onto the nail one at a time. I do really like this look. I only wore this for a few hours and found myself picking at them! Too tempting not to. I was pleased with the end result.

  5. It looks great :) I sometimes touch such things, f. ex. rhinestones when I wear them.

  6. Yep another picker here LOL
    I think I prefer the old fashioned way with adding them dry - then the aren't upside down and easier to manage...

  9. I am the professional picker, so not wearing those things too often. I like the results on others, though. Black dress, pearls, your nails and you can go out :)
