Microbead manicure sets in Primark

Post  mmmmchocolate on Tue Nov 13, 2012 2:11 am

I was sure there was a thread about these microbead / caviar manicures somewhere, but I can't find it so I'm going to have to start a new one!

Primark have sets at the moment - you get a polish and a bottle of microbeads. They were with the christmas-y makeup gift sets. Sorry - didn't pay enough attention to the colours available or the price, but it can't have been more than a couple of quid. *must pay more attention in future*

Ohhh sounds interesting. My local doesn't do the nail varnishes so I doubt they'll do these but I'll be sure to look next time I'm in. Thanks for that.

They're with the Christmas decs and gift sets rather than the polish, so definitely worth a look Smile

£2.50 in Pearl and Black. My friend just called me from Primark to see if I wanted any Very Happy
As I actually use my hands and can't sit all day admiring my fingers I politely declined, wouldn't last 5 minutes on me lol

Yep - that's one of the reasons I didn't pay too much attention when I saw them. I don't like the effect that much, looks damn fiddly to achieve, I'm sure it would feel horrible, and it just wouldn't last! This one's not for me Smile

MUA have also started doing some (available at Superdrug). I think they were £3, and they're a mix of colours - the one I got is blue, pink and silver.

No I haven't yet, but planning on using them soon! I did, however, decide to do a dry run to see how easy it'd be to get them out on to the nail. For the record, very easy. I don't know why I thought that was a sensible idea...they went everywhere lol, and they're so so small!

The Superdrug here only had two colours, the one I got and a black one, but then it is Maidstone and nowhere has much of anything. I miss cities. Mine's called Pisces though, so I'd imagine there are 12, one for each starsign?

I just got my microbeads from ebay. Paid about £2 for a set of 12 colours from china.

They are quite easy to apply, just put a thick slow drying base coat on and stick them in.

MUA at Superdrug also have the microbead sets (can't remember how much but given it's MUA i'd assume only a couple of quid or less). Lots of different colour combos bounce

Right then ladies, I finally got round to trying out my MUA beads!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

They weren't the easiest thing to apply. It would've been easier if they were in a pot you could just dip your nail into instead of having to shake them out on to your nail. Not that it was too bad, it only took a few seconds...

I applied one coat of seche vite over the top, because I figured they wouldn't even survive me sleeping without it, and actually I don't think you can tell there's top coat on there - it hasn't ruined the look at all. I've been running round like a headless chicken today trying to sort out registering with a new doctors, sorting out internet, shouting at Virgin Media, getting keys cut, Christmas shopping etc etc and they've held up absulutely fine. I haven't washed any dishes yet. And probably won't. I don't like doing dishes.... I've been rubbing them constantly though (because I just can't leave bumpy things on my nails alone, and none have come off.

I just had a look on the MUA website and it seems there's 5 different ones. So they just selected 5 star signs to use as very names...very odd lol.

It's three for two on all cosmetics in Superdrug at the moment so I picked up some of these yesterday - they look really pretty in the bottle so I'm just hoping my nails hurry up and grow so I can use them! They're £3 each so you can get three for £6, they'd make lovely stocking fillers for nail-minded people Very Happy

They aren't on the Superdrug website as far as I can see. Am I missing them or do they only have them in store?
Oh no ignore that - I found them by searching for the word 'constellation' but they only ahve three colours now and all three are pinky Sad
