Nail Art How-To: Champagne Bubbles

Accessories don't just mean bags, shoes, and jewels, we're talking about your nails, too! Here nail artist Alicia Torello shows us how to achieve this gorgeous champagne-inspired manicure. Pair it with a little black dress for a fun party, or jeans and a sweater for a holiday lunch.


1. Apply Your First Coat. Before beginning, file your nails to the desired shape and apply a base coat. Apply two coats of an opalescent pink/peach or cream nail color of your choice. Here we used Obsessive Compulsive's Kava Kava. Allow to dry slightly. 

2. Add Your Pearls! First, apply small dots of nail glue where you would like each pearl to be placed (you can pick up small pearls from most craft stores). Using tweezers, pick up the pearls individually and place them onto your nail. Blow on your nails to help secure the pearls.  

3. Add a Top Coat. Once all of your pearls are added, apply top coat to help keep them in place. 

5. Allow Some Dry Time! Let your nails dry for a good 20 minutes. Et Voila!
