MUA Nail Constellations in 'Scorpio'

Tuesday, 30 October 2012 11:00

When I was in town this weekend my lovely boyfriend treated me to a bottle of MUA Nail Constellations in the colour of my choice- which was 'Scorpio'. I have heard so much about this budget micro bead manicure and I have been wanting to try it for weeks, since it came out! It is always out of stock but they had all five colours in the Superdrug we went to which was really exciting and especially rare at the moment.



I used Rimmel's 60 Second Nail Polish in 'Green with Envy' as my main nail colour and then I used the MUA Nail Constellations on my accent nail. I was worried that the beads were going to be super hard to apply, but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! I used the applicator attached to the bottle to drop them onto the nail, then pressed the beads down a little to make sure they stuck properly. I used a clear top coat as the adhesive layer for the beads, as I thought applying them straight onto the nail colour could get messy, which really paid off. I know there are a few little gaps between the beads, but I was quite proud for a first attempt!

The MUA Nail Constellations are £3 a bottle from Superdrug or from www.muastore.co.uk.

  3. I was admiring these, has i do with all make up everytime i go into superdrug. I felt i couldn't purchase because of the names being horoscope. Are they ever going to bring out an aries? But they look quite scary to apply and i was wondering whether they worked well on the nails. They defiantly remind me of hundreds and thousands lol. It works really well on your nail and i can't help but say once again how completely and utterly amazing the rimmel polish is. I love this colour. xx

    1. Thank you! I thought they would be too but I was pleasantly surprised :) The trick is to use a clear top coat to stick them on I found, and use a bowl to catch the spare beads!xxx

  6. Absolutely love this! I have wanted to try a caviar manicure for ages, but didn't want to want to fork out for a Ciate one. I saw the MUA ones, and there's a good range of colours, for a decent price, so considering getting one of those. x
