As I write this, I have 52 minutes left of Friday which means this counts, right? I've been wanting to do a Fish Egg Manicure ever since I saw the first one (I can't remember which one it was). I have been so busy swatching Zoya's new collection (swatches coming soon) that I just haven't gotten around to it. Then I saw this http://prettydigits.blogspot.com/2012/04/i-just-received-this-email-it-has-come.html?m=1. I don't have anything kind to say about this situation but I will pass this little jem along:
I thought that was pretty hilarious and I feel a little bad for Ciate because I highly doubt their Caviar manicure trademarking and product line is going to have much success. It's ok, Fish Egg Manis are far superior and much cheaper. Here is mine:
You probably recognize the stunning Charla by Zoya. It's one of my favorite Zoyas, it reminds me of the ocean or a mermaid's tail. The microbeads/fish eggs came from a random Bundle Monster wheel I had stuffed in a drawer. There were just enough for one nail but that's all I needed. I'm quite proud of this manicure, I'm even going to wear it for more than one day. *gasp* My camera doesn't like sparkle but let me tell you, it is blinding. Ok, I exaggerate but it is gorgeous! ;)
Oh, by the way this idea came from Dashing Diva which can be read about on this blog post from February 2011: http://thepolishexchange.blogspot.com/2011/02/caviar-nails-by-dashing-diva-at-cushnie.html.
Before I post this I must show you my nail fail. Here is my first attempt at the Fish Egg Mani:
This is Butter London Lillibet's Jubilee which just came out this week I think. I'll post more about that later. The microbeads were from Sally's and were just too big and I felt like an alien.
What do you think about this look? It isn't practical and will probably fall apart by tomorrow but it's great for a night out. Thanks for reading everyone!!
