Fish Egg Nails

I've been fascinated by the "fish egg nails" trend I've been seeing lately, and wanted to try my own hand at it. I went to Michael's today and bought 12 different colors of microbeads, so I will be playing with this look and different color combos for a while.

Since it was my first attempt, I decided to start with an accent nail on each hand. It's not perfect -- there are a few gaps in spots between some beads, but for a first try it's not too bad.

I used Zoya's Pinta and over that, Essie Shine Of The Times on all nails except for the ring finger. On the ring finger, I used gold microbeads. I put a coat of Seche Vite on top of each nail, including the beaded nails.
