Monthly Mani: Caviar Nails

As a future PR maven, it's important to look put together. This is especially important when it comes to your hands--you'll be meeting people, shaking hands, working with papers--and it's super important to have a nice manicure. This is a monthly series that will show you perfect colors so you can always be polished.

 Ciaté's creative director, the London company responsible for the latest nail fascination, wanted something 3-D for a cover photo shoot and brainstormed the caviar manicure.

This look is "feminine, indulgent yet delicately extravagant" and it's time consuming. It should be reserved for special events.

The Ciaté, two-step kit is available online for $25 at Sephora and, for those outside the United States, at Ciaté. Unfortunately, Ciaté's online store is often out of stock, so you have to check back frequently. The kits can also be found on Amazon and similar sites for a higher price.

However, you can get this look for less and in a wider variety of colors. Just pick up micro-beads from your local craft store. Mirco-beads usually come six colors in a package for under $10. And you can use polish you already own for the base.

Tutorials are abundant on the Web for caviar manis, so instead of boring you with a step-by-step, just Google the process when you're ready to try this trend!

What nail craze are you into? Let us know! We're always looking for ideas for Monthly Manis!
