    SLIDE 1 OF 6
  • Step 1

    Apply a base coat and paint the lightest color of your beach gradient as the base color.

    SLIDE 2 OF 6
  • Step 2

    Take a make-up sponge and apply the colors on it to make a gradient. Gently dab the sponge on your nails. Reapply the polishes on the sponge if necessary and repeat the process.

    SLIDE 3 OF 6
  • Step 3

    After you feel satisfied with the ombrés, clean up the cuticles with a Q-tip or a brush and nail polish remover.

    SLIDE 4 OF 6
  • Step 4

     Apply a coat of glitter polish and before it dries, use a tweezer (or your finger) to place the caviar beads. Add additional decors if you'd like for extra fun, like a star stud!

    SLIDE 5 OF 6
  • Step 5

     Finish off with 1 or 2 good layers of top coat to secure the beads and studs.
