# Align nested items in separate frames in beamer

I am working in beamer. I have used some itemize list in one slide, and I want to continue the indent of the nested list in the first slide to the next slide. Note that I do not want to use allowframebreaks. How can I achieve this? The situation is shown in the figure below.

From the figure, understand that I need to align "nested thing 2" with "blah" in the itemize environment. MWE:

\begin{frame}{First frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item something
\item some other thing
\begin{itemize}
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] nested thing
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] nested thing 2
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}{Second frame}
\begin{itemize}
\begin{itemize}
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] blah
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] blah blah
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}


However, I get an error along with the output "Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item". Is there any workaround, such as using \setlength, etc.?

You could add an empty dummy \item to the top level list:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{First frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item something
\item some other thing
\begin{itemize}
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] nested thing
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] nested thing 2
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Second frame}
\begin{itemize}
\item[]
\begin{itemize}
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] blah
\item[$\hookrightarrow$] blah blah
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
