This was the result of me toying around with the idea of creating a studded effect on my nails with the use of microbeads. Pretty simple and definitely eye catching. All you need is nail polish in the color of your choice, microbeads (I bought mine at Michael's), an orange stick, and some clear polish.
Step 1: Paint your nails with two coats of polish. Finish off with clear topcoat
Step 2: Dip the pointed end of the orange stick into the clear polish.
Step 3: Dip orange stick into the beads.
Step 4: Place beads in random patterns onto your nails.
Step 5: Add a final layer of topcoat and let dry.
