Hello my Sweets!
If any of you love sprinkles, Hundreds & Thousands or anything cute and sweet then you are going to love MUA: Makeup Academy's Nail Constellations! They are bottles of little beads in an array of cool colours that allow you to add that 3-dimensional feel to your nails!
The Constellations come in 5 colours Scorpio, Pisces, Leo, Gemini and Libra so you can pick a shade to suit your mood. The packaging is very simple and practical as the pointed funnel top allows precision application and the clear bottle lets you see the different colours easily.
Here, I have the Gemini shade and it is made up of lovely, light pink, peach, gold and green beads that work together to create a fun look. Because I am not very skilled when it comes to detailed nail designs I decided to use the constellations on just one nail and I think it worked very well.
To apply these nail beads, it is best to apply the nail colour you want underneath then apply another thick coat of that same colour or a clear varnish. Then apply the beads using the pointed tip to the nail or area you require. Make sure you do this while the varnish is still wet as this will be what holds the beads into place.
Once you have all your beads in place, apply a clear coat of nail varnish over the top to keep them in place. I found this step does dull the colour slightly, but it helps it last longer.
I really like these Nail Constellations, in one quick and simple application you can jazz up your nails and give them that 3D look. I wouldn't say they are great for an every day nail as the beads can catch on your clothes etc but they are great for a weekend look. The colour combinations that are available are great and I cannot wait to collect them all (although they're sold out everywhere I look!)
You can have so much fun with these that it feels like you're topping your nails with sprinkles!
UPDATE: I'm sorry guys, I didn't realise until afterwards that I didn't tell you about the price etc. The Nail Constellations cost £3 each and I got mine from Superdrug. You can also order them from the MUA website where I believe they offer International delivery if you are not based in the UK. For me, you can't go wrong for £3!
