MUA Nail Constellation

In my recent MUA Haul post, I mentioned that I had bought the Nail Constellation in Pisces to try (see post HERE). I wasn't sure how much success I would have but said I would blog about it once I had tried. I had a spare half hour this afternoon so gave it a go! They were actually more successful than I thought they would be.

 You have to apply a coat of nail polish - any colour will do but works best with something similar to the colour of the balls (teal blue, baby pink and silver) and then shake the tube several times so the balls cover the nail. Press the balls down gently and once positioned, secure with a clear top coat. 

I used Maybelline's Forever Strong Super Stay Gel Nail Colour in Mint For Life as my base colour as its fairly pale and I didn't want anything too bold. Here's how they turned out...

Considering I didn't spend much time perfecting some of the little empty gaps, I am really pleased with the outcome. I am not sure how long they will last as a few bits have already dropped off within a couple of hours. I wouldn't use this nail art for my daily nails, however they would be great for a night out or a special occasion. 

A word of warning though - if you are going to try this out, tip the balls out onto your nail over a tray or bowl as they go everywhere! You can see how many I collected just by doing one hand! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing how successful these were! Have you tried them? Was it successful? 



  1. I bought this for a friend, and it looks so cool! Does the little beads tend to fall off easily? Because I don't want to be accidentally eating them!

    1. I hope she likes them :)
      No they actually stay on very well once they have dried! I had a job getting them off although a few did fall of in the first couple of hours but I think thats to be expected as not all end up touching the nail!
