How-to: The bubbly nails at Joy Cioci S/S ’13

Joy Cioci - Spring 2013 nails

The look:

Bubbly nails—using micro-beads and small pearls—by CND nail artist Candice Manacchio.

The inspiration:

Underwater bubbles. (The show’s theme was “1920s woman meets mermaid.”)

The how-to:

1. Apply base coat.

2. Apply two coats of CND Nail Polish in Cream Washed.

3. Pour some white or clear micro-beads into a flat bowl.

4. Working with one nail at a time, apply top coat to the nail and then dip it into the beads. (Or dip each nail directly into the tube of micro-beads.) Shake off any unattached beads and then gently tap the surface to set.

5. Repeat with the rest of your nails and then let dry for at least 20 minutes.
