Born Pretty Store: 12 Color 3D Steel Ball Caviar beads review

I have for review today a set of metallic micro beads from Born Pretty Store.  Micro beads (or bullion beads) can be used in a variety of nail art applications and are easy to maneuver and remove.


Item No. 456

The micro beads come in a 12-color wheel.  Unfortunately, some of the beads have spilled out in transit and mixed with the other colors.  Colors include: black, silver, green, copper, fuchsia, pink, purple, dark green, dark purple, dark red, navy blue and gold. 

One of the many ways to use micro beads is to make studded nails: 


The base color is Color Club's Wing Fling.  I applied a bit of top coat and I applied a bead one by one using a toothpick.  It was hard to figure out the spacing but it became easier once I figured out how many rows to apply.  I added another layer of topcoat to seal them in place.  Also, the micro beads were no trouble to remove.  I applied a cotton pad with a some of remover and they removed rather easily. 

Some other uses for micro beads: 


You can use them on the whole nail.  Simply apply over wet polish and tap off excess. Apply a coat of topcoat to seal them in.


They can be used to make shapes.  I made a gold cross for this skull nail art. 

Final thoughts? 

I think steel micro beads are great for nail art or accentuating nail art like what I did for skull nail art. Unfortunately, these were packaged in a nail art carousel allowing for the beads to spill out and mix together.  Most of my colors were salvageable and I could pick through the mixed beads.

That being said, I feel that metallic micro beads are a very versatile nail art product. It can seem tedious or messy apply but the final outcome is amazing.

Availability?
