Nail Lovin’ – How to add Nail Pearls!!!!

Posted On

Hi girls, welcome to another day of Nail Lovin!

Today I’m going to show you how to apply nail pearls to your nails using a kit from Claire’s Accessories. Nail pearls look really different to wearing just a normal polish and are perfect for parties!

You will need:

1. A Nail Pearls set - £5 from Claire’s. I am using the multi-coloured pearls set.

2. A clear base coat

3. A nail polish similar to the colour of your nail pearls. I am using a pale off-white shade.

Here is the Nail Pearls kit:


Your pack will include a bottle of nail pearls, a small funnel and a clear plastic tray.





Step 1.

Apply your clear base coat to your nails and allow to dry. This will protect your nails from any colour staining and make your manicure last longer.

Step 2.

Apply one coat of the coloured nail polish to all your nails and allow to dry. I have chosen to use a pale off-white shade as I think this will really make my pearls stand out and also there are a few white pearls in my pack.

 Step 3.

Once your base coat has dried, take out your nail pearls and tray.  Apply a second coat of nail polish to one nail and whilst the nail polish is still wet, put the tray below your hand and pour the pearls over the wet nail polish. The tray will catch the pearls that don’t stick to your polish and you can pour these back into the bottle when we’ve finished.

 Step 4.

You will now have a nail full of pearls and lots in the tray below, but don’t worry too much about these for now. To make the pearls stick to your nails you need to pat down lightly using your finger so that the pearls sit in the wet nail polish.


 Step 5.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each nail until all your nails are covered.

 Step 6.

Wait around 20 minutes for your nails to completely dry.

 Step 7.

You can now tidy away the pearls that fell into the tray and these can be used again!  Simply place the funnel into the bottle of nail pearls and carefully pour the loose pearls from the tray into the funnel.


 Don’t forget to send in a picture of your finished pearl manicure!
