Textured Nail Design Using Caviar Micro Beads – Quick and Easy Nail Tutorial

Textured Nail Design Using Caviar Micro Beads – Quick and Easy Nail Tutorial


Hi everybody, I’m Kirsty Meakin from Naio Nails. In this video, I’m going to do a textured nail and we’re gonna use the micro beads. It’s something that I’ve wanted to try out, so why not try it on camera? It’s gonna go wrong, ain’t it? So, I’ve got a nail here, we’re gonna use a tip today for safety reasons. Now, if this was a natural nail, you would apply the base coat and you would do this with the urban graffiti topcoat. Ideally, I think this would work better on a hard gel extension or an acrylic nail extension. So I’m gonna imagine that this is an acrylic nail extension. It’s been filed, and it’s ready for artwork. The artwork we’re gonna do is this textured nail and we’re gonna work with mega gloss. It’s slightly thicker than the urban graffiti topcoat. I’m gonna do one coat. Do you know what? I’m gonna slight, I’m not gonna full cure it. I’m gonna give it… Adam: That’s what I was just thinking. Kirsty: …gonna give it a 20-second cure, so it’s slightly tacky when it comes out the lamp. Second coat. You want enough on there so the balls can sink into this layer. Doesn’t matter what colour the microbeads are, that you use at this point. I’m gonna use this little tin lid just to catch the balls. I’m gonna sprinkle. This is like amazing already. I love it! Adam: You’re not doing a very good job of catching them. Kirsty: I’m trying. Oh dear! The more you put on, the better really because it’ll sink into any little tiny bits. Adam: Question. How are you gonna get them back in there? Kirsty: Not thought about it yet. Right! What I need to do is make sure that they’re not sticking over the edge. You can use your finger or you can use a gel brush. A dry gel brush, you don’t want it to stick to your brush. We need a nice clean edge because we don’t want them to get caught. So, if any are sticking up, you can sort of flatten them down as well, push them into place. Right! I’m gonna cure that. Into the lamp it goes. I quite like sprinkling them. I feel like I’m decorating cakes. Now, we’re gonna use from the metallics range, this colour. I think this is called Going for Gold. Ooh, I like it already! Adam: I thought you were going to …. Kirsty: Not do this? Adam: … topcoat then put that on because… Kirsty: No! The balls are shiny. Adam: I thought you had to topcoat them …ah, right. Kirsty: See, there’s top coat underneath. The balls are already shiny. These sort of microbeads are already shiny. Kirsty: It has to go on to a shiny surface than the metallic polish does. Adam: That’s what I was confused about. I thought you were gonna topcoat, then put that on, then topcoat again. Kirsty: No! Now, if any balls come off like that one there, see? Just wipe that away. You don’t want to put that back into the lamp. Lamp? Bottle. You want to let that dry and then, I think we’ll need one more coat. I’m gonna put another coat on now. Drag it nice and thin. It’s reminding me of something like something a Greek god would wear or Egyptian or something. You know what I mean? Adam: I do! Kirsty: What is it though? Adam: It’s like a beard. Like the depiction of a beard or a sheep. The golden fleece, that’s it. Kirsty: The golden fleece?
Adam: Yeah! Did you pick like the way it was depicted? But I’ve seen beards like that as well, but I don’t know what in. Kirsty: What? Like a real beard? Adam: No. Depictions of… Kirsty: Right! I really like it. I’m gonna use, I’m not gonna use a mega gloss to seal it. And I’m gonna use the urban graffiti because it’s thinner and it works better over the metallic range. Make sure you cover all the nail, make sure you go around the sides. Get all those edges done. Then just give it a few seconds to sink in. The gravity will pull it down through all those little bits. And then you can pop it in the lamp and cure that. I like this! It’s like one of them games. That is cool. I like it. I Want one. Want one. It’s worked! I like it! Adam: So it is textured?
Kirsty: Yeah! Feel. Adam: Oh yeah.
Kirsty: Ain’t it good? Adam: That’ll be another like fidgety one. Kirsty: Oh, you’d have to keep rubbing that and messing with it. Yeah, I would mess with that. I think you would have to clean it with a toothbrush… Adam: Yeah. Kirsty: if you’ve got foundation stuck in it and things like that, clean it with a toothbrush and you’ll be fine. So, there we are guys! That is how to do a textured nail using the microbeads. I hope you’ve enjoyed that. All the products that I’ve used today will be listed below. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Instagram and I’ll see you guys in the next video. Bye bye! Let me just answer this it’s Jam. Jam, jam, jam, jam. I love jam. Jam: Hiya.
Kirsty: Hiya. Jam: Are you coming home?
I’m just saying jam, jam, jam, jam. I love jam. Babysitter: Jam’s the best. Are you still coming to mine at half 9? Yeah, I’m at work still. You’re at work still?
Kirsty: Yeah. Adam: Do you really call this work? Kirsty: Have you heard him? Says do you really call this work? Jam: Are you with Adam?
Kirsty: Yeah. Jam: Hi Adam.
Kirsty: She says, “Hi Adam!” Adam: I can hear her on me headphones.

  1. You might be able to put the micro beads back in the bottle with a piece of paper

  2. can you do greek goddess inspired nails full set please???

  3. That would look cool with a chrome on top as well

  4. Or even a copper metallic with the turquoise as an accent to look like the patina of the copper

  5. It looks like those sweets you get in liquorice allsorts

  6. Not fond of this nail look. Tacky

  7. I have to say, this is the worst I've seen You do.

  8. You should do an Egyptian inspired look, in celebration of them finding queen Nefertiti. ๐Ÿ˜

  9. I always enjoy Adam's random info inserts lol.

  10. Mardi gras beads! That's what this reminds me of…

  11. Looks like you packed sand onto the nail, and then polished it….sorry, not a fan!

  12. It makes me think a bit of Byzantine gold jewelry.

    (p.s. a Byzantine jewel inspired manicure would be AMAZING)

  13. #naionails how would you take this off without ruining a drill bit?

  14. It's like the caviar nails from several years back but putting polish over the top. Kinda meh.

  15. Are you guys getting monetized? I've rarely seen ads… (I don't mind ads! I think you deserve more than anyone!)

  16. Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ they went EVERYWHERE!!! X

  17. Looks like a Starfish leg to me. Thumbs up cuz I love you! But the design is a no for me dawg.

  18. I liked it, but I think it was better before you painted it, I'd be interested to see some ideas for plan microbeads.

  19. I love this design. I really liked the gold on. It did remind me of ancient Egypt or Rome. I think it would look really awesome with designs on other fingers having designs with ancient Egypt. That would be awesome too!

  20. It could work as dragon skin or something like that!

  21. Hi Kristy doing amazing work but could u do something special work of micro beads with large embellishments thanks cheers

  22. Unfortunately…..this is not my favorite application

  23. It looks like a ferrero roche chocolate.

  24. When can you come over to east Sweden (Norrkรถping) and fix our nails? ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿƒโค๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿƒ

  25. Thanks Kirsty. This reminds me of a similar look I've seen on the Russian nail posts on instagram, called VELVET SAND. It SO COOL, like rough concrete but super fine. They even use it for bridal manicures! Is there some way this could be achieved, as its very hard to access this Russian product? #velvetsand Thanks. Leah.๐ŸŒท @luxnailsbyleah

  26. Interesting way to create a textured nail design.

  27. Worst vid you've ever done

  28. Reminds me of champagne bubbles. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿฅ‚

  29. Sorry but I think it looked so much better before you painted it

  30. What kind of nails you have are they coffin nails

  31. Good God, I'd spend my day picking them off one by one!

  32. I love my nails smooth so not my smile but I donโ€™t love it and your technique and voice and less! Love your videos! Next time put a piece of paper under your tine sweep am all on the sand which the paper so the beads go back in super easy ^_^/

  33. So neat…..๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‘

  34. I donโ€™t know why everyone is saying they donโ€™t like it๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ I LOVE IT!๐Ÿ˜

  35. When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was a corn cob. You know, corn on the cob that had the corn eaten off? Strangely enough, my adult son walked behind me while I was watching Kirsty work and when he saw it, he asked me why I was watching a video of a corn cob! Apparently I'm not the only one who thought that at first glance. But it might be just because we are Americans and we eat corn on the cob occasionally when it's in season.

  36. Iโ€™ve tried to do the technique multiple times with different products and the balls always melt into one, big, bumpy blob ๐Ÿ˜‚

  37. Love THE gold ๐Ÿ˜

  38. TRYPOPHOBIA!!!!
    anyonr else? No? Just me?

  39. Use a price of paper folded in half and make a paper shoot and place back in bottle works every time ๐Ÿ™‚
    I would do lines of different coloured micro beads yes I'm doing that design you made me think of lol.
    Love your nail though very textured !!

  40. I think if your doing a texture like that it would make great SNOW

  41. I love gold! Do more gold nails!

  42. Damn, Adam is so smart, what is he doing behind camera? ๐Ÿ˜€ People that have no idea how auroras happen (not even mentioning antic sculptures with beards) teach me at university ๐Ÿ˜€

  43. I don't feel like this will work this way. it needs more flexibility. small parts always need movement

  44. I love ALL of your work! Thank you for sharing this with us!! Where can I find a nail stand like that? What I'm using is complicated!!! Thank you!

  45. Oh Iโ€™ve just howled laughing at Kirstyโ€™s face when Adam said โ€œa beard!โ€…….. haa haa haa!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ that wasnโ€™t what Kirsty was thinking! So funny, Iโ€™m cryin here ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Love you guys x

  46. I need a video of Adam attempting acrylic nails ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Is ths the same girl that used to do videos years ago?

  48. It reminds me of millet sprays (seeds.) I used to buy them for my budgie and hang them at the top of his cage as a treat. He loved them. I Hope you know what I mean? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

  49. It works better with normal polish and without covering them. I put a thick layer of polish and put the beads before drying, push them a little to sink in. And just use polish for the tip to make them stay strong, they look amazing.

  50. I kind of looks like one of those bird eggs from smurfs the lost village

  51. Que padre idea me encantรณ!!! Saludos desde Mรฉxico!!!!

  52. What?! No bling??!!! Who are you and what have you done with the real SuperStar??

  53. You want to be really careful when you wipe your ass with those!

  54. omg love the look you gave camera man when he said beard

  55. I love this!! What a great idea. You are so talented!!

  56. Looked better with just one coat of the gold. It'd make a cute accent nail.

  57. ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ˜’

  58. How to remove it from the nail afterwards??

  59. I love your work so much! Could you show us how you would remove these if it was on a natural nail and also on an acrylic or gel extension? Please?

  60. Your hair is black then white

  61. the technique is nice but the color looks like a poisonous frog or some kind of infection with puss, def not I would use

  62. Do a polygel video

  63. So cute ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  64. love this Nail!!!! greetings from munic๐Ÿ˜˜

  65. Maybe next time pour the beads in a dish and just dip the nail into it. Just a thought

  66. I wonder what this would look like encapsulated in clear acrylic because although I always love your work I do find this quite messy looking. P.S I find the best way to get the rogue microbeads back in the container is to brush them onto a folded(creased) piece of paper and just pour them back in carefully.

  67. Getting them off the nail is the hard part if you wear acrylic nails Iโ€™ve tried it and it sucks

  68. microbeads are so bad for the environment

  69. I like it too! It reminds me of something ancient and expensive.

  70. I love it. I would so get this on my nails. ๐Ÿ’œ

  71. its like a golden nugget, love it.

  72. โ„๏ธโ›„๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’‹. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน

  73. Beautiful Kirsty, but how to remove it?

  74. It's a wrappedย Ferrero Rocher!

  75. It kind of reminds me of reptile skin. Something around dragon's eye or something

  76. You are absolutely talented! Such a wonderful gift. Wish you were here in California USA. ๐ŸŒบ

  81. I would have liked the beads with a top coat different colored beads be neat. Just my personal preference. Great job tho

  82. Your reaction to โ€˜beardโ€™ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ love it

  83. I think she should do a challenge where she paints each of the little balls separately and then puts them in the nail one by one I think it will look really cool xx

  84. I think this design is cool

  85. How do you remove this from the Nail? I didn't this on my nails a couple months ago but when I went to remove it with the electric file it smelled like it was burning. So I ended up using old cuticle nippers. But what's the proper way to remove them?

  86. Looks like the textured ceilings of the 60's to me.

  87. My NeatFreak In me is MAKING me WANT TO PICK UP ALL THOSE TINY BEADS and put em back in the Bottle…Iโ€™m Soooo distracted.. but I actually Like this.. itโ€™s Different kinda like CRUSHED GOLD Iโ€™ll put on my ring fingers Nail๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜ฆ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
