THE PROCESS: Get your party nails on. This one-of-a-kind treatment starts off with a regular manicure where the therapist files and shapes your nails, and then cleanses and gently massages your hands. Next, you select two polish colours: One for your varnish base and the other colour for the tiny beads that will be applied on top. At Nstyle, there are many fun and bright colours to choose from, including a mixed pot which actually looks like the hundreds of sprinkles that you put on ice cream! The first layer of paint is applied to the nails, then the therapist applies a second, much thicker layer of varnish which will allow the beads to stick. They then pour the hundreds of tiny beads over each nail individually and slowly pat them down tight, to settle neatly into place. It's quite fascinating to watch. You will then need to sit and let your nails dry for at least 10-15 minutes to make sure the varnish and beads will settle and stay.
THE RESULT: Ideal for any special occasion, these sophisticated and bizarre nails will stand out and make you feel that extra bit glamorous.
MAINTENANCE: The texture feels slightly rough so be careful not to catch them on anything. The Caviar manicure will usually last at least 48 hours in top condition. It is ideal for you to make a statement at a party.
