I got these black microbeads in a pack of 10 mini assorted colors for nails.
I started off with a coat of Revlon Stiletto for a black base. After waiting for it to dry, I added on a thick coat of clear polish, then immediately sprinkled the microbeads to cover the entire nail. Press down to secure the beads before they dry.
I didn’t use any top coat because it will ruin the whole look. The mani lasted for a good 2-3 days with occasional beads falling off here and there.
