MUA // Nail Constellation in Gemini

I'm sure most of you have heard of MUA's Nail Constellations and probably own one or two if not all already. The Nail Constellations have been causing quite the stir in the beauty 'community' selling out extremely fast. Nail Constellations are fool proof and will see you through another party season.


When Ciaté launched their 'caviar' manicure last year almost every nail enthusiast out there hopped onto eBay and ordered cheaper beads because these wonderful constellations from MUA weren't created yet. I didn't get round to using my beads because they were too messy to apply in the packaging they arrived in. MUA have got it spot on again, not only are the bead varieties gorgeous they come in a plastic tube, complete with funnel.

Nail Constellations are super easy and quick to use, they do come with instructions but here's how. Paint your nails with a colour of your choice, I went for Avon's Romance, I love this polish at the moment I don't usually rate Avon. Remove white cap on the funnel and sprinkle over your wet polish, if you're feeling slightly crazy and want them all beaded paint one nail at a time. Once you've covered your nails, press the beads in gently and allow to dry. You can apply a top coat, I applied to the tip of my nail as I was looking after a 4 year old. It didn't change the colour in my opinion with Gemini*, they're also still intact. In person the gaps you can see on my nail don't show up as much and look rather great! To put your left over beads away unscrew the funnel cap to be mess free. My Nail Constellation nails should see me through till Monday!

  4. I'm buying some of these V soon! I've resisted biting my nails (my worst habbit) for weeks now ever since I first saw a review!
    Love this colour, I think Gemini is my favourite so far. Can't wait to see if they bring out the rest of the star signs!
