Review : Ciaté Caviar Manicure

7 May

Lately I’ve discovered that I have nails and that when I put polish on them, they look alright as oppose to the ragged way they usually look. On top that, sephora kept bugging me with their emails all “buy something! Buy something N O W!” So I was like ok, fine! Whats good in the nails department? Thats when I stumbled upon Ciaté Caviar Manicure.

Ciaté Caviar Manicure looks like little, shiny, festive beads on your nails. I’ve never seen anything like this before so obviously I had to buy it!

When I received the kit it contained two bottles, one containing polish, the other containing the caviar, a funnel and a tray.

This process was pretty easy. I say that because as easy as doing makeup comes to me, doing nails does not! However, I was able to do it well enough to actually get some compliments. The whole process took me about 45 minutes. I
had no problem getting the caviar to stick, however the amount of caviar I lost during the application was crazy. Thank God for the tray!

I LOVE this product. Never again will I do it on all 10 nails. I will do it on a couple of accent nails though. The reason for this is the fall out. The product claims that the caviar will stay in place up to 48 hours and it did. After that I had to reapply it to my tips. By day 4 they had really started to fall out, so as you can imagine I just wanted the caviar off. I started walking around absentmindedly rubbing the caviar off. Beads all over the place lol.

You can purchase Ciaté Caviar Manicure from Sephora for $25. Pretty steep, but my guess is no one will want to use this everyday anyway, so it works out.

So what’s the verdict? Do you think you will invest in this caviar goodness?
