Today I'd like to finally review the Nail Sugar Pearls from Catrice's Candy Shock LE.
They're basically tiny little beads to be used on your nails. Mine are in the shade C01 Cotton Candy. They are currently still available and cost 2,95 Euros for 17g.
The first time I tried them, I used the cream-colored beads over a hot pink nail polish. Not such a good idea, because in my opinion it just doesn't look good when the beads are lighter than the nail polish.
So, next try. This time with a matching background color, Something Sweet by China Glaze.
Application: I first of all painted my nails and waited for it to dry a little. Then I added one thick coat of top coat, and held my nail over a tiny container. Now I poured the beads onto the nail, directly from the bottle. I made sure I got every corner and then pressed the beads in place. So far, so good.
Feeling: the feeling of the beads on your nails is rather funny. They aren't in the way or anything, only when you do your hair. But the texture is quite unusual!
