Crystal pencil dress (happy new years everyone!)

Get the look
Dress: Asos (here)
Shoes: Bakers (sold out) similar (here)
toe nails: Chanel 'Dragon'
nails: Chanel 'Intermezzo'

For the nails I did an at home caviar style manicure.  I put a layer of the Chanel intermezzo and then sprinkled clear microbeads on top. The microbeads can be purchased at any craft store. Slightly pushed them down to help them set up. A clear coat can be applied but i opted not to use it. The glass microbeads have a beautiful shine creates an almost diamond look. The only downside is this is a one day manicure and the beads don't hold up past 24 hours. I loved it enough that i would for sure try again.
