Ciaté holiday nail kits are not only festive, but truly jaw-droppingly gorgeous! Ciaté has launched 2 NEW LIMITED EDITION holiday nail sets: Mini Mani Month ($58.00) and Tree Trinkets ($21.00), exclusively for Sephora, that are sure to be on every finger fashionista’s nail list!
I love holiday events, as that means tons of goodies available for review. The Ciaté Mini Mani Month is a cute advent calendar that features 24 mini nail shades. You can change your color every day of the month (as I do – I don’t do chips!).
Ciaté’s calendar countdown has every shade and texture your little heart desires: base coats, quick-dry, mini Paint Pots, glitter sprinkles, caviar pearls, treatments, cute nail gifts and a hidden surprise!
The Ciaté Mini Mani Month contains 17 of Ciaté’s best crème shades and 7 textured manicure toppers (caviar/beads, sprinkles, powders), so you’ll be entertained the entire holiday season. I also love the cute quotes and tips inside every door you open.
Even more festive are the Ciaté Tree Trinkets. Six mini glitter polishes in clear dome tree ornaments — super-cute! The names alone will get you into the holiday spirit: Yule Rules, All Aglow, Candy Cane, Humbug, Wrap Star! and Tinsel Town. My nail tech even has her tree decorated with these!
With so many options to choose from for my review, I went with a festive shade, of course. So, I painted my nails all white and then chose the red and green Caviar Pearls Christmas Tree Caviar (beads). Now, I warn you as these toppers require patience.
These little beads tend to scatter and make a mess, so I recommend you take a white napkin and pour a dime-sized amount onto your nail. How I did it: After I painted my nails white, I let them dry completely. Then, I applied a thick coat of clear, quickly placed my nail face-down onto the beads and ROLLED, coating my nails with caviar beads. Press down and then apply a top coat. You get an amazing 3-D effect with the Caviar Manicure!
I took a break from holiday nails and played around with Ciaté Feathered Manicure Kit ($25.00) — previously reviewed by fellow Curl~Friend Nicole! Check out her review HERE! — and chose my fave combo of black and white.
A bit tricky at first, but the key is to paint your nails and while the polish is still wet, you lay the feather with the tip facing your cuticle, then press down and paint your nail BACKWARDS (again, towards the cuticle, not out to the tip). Let dry, trim and file in a downward motion. I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I received.
With 3 drawers and a huge top compartment, you can mix colors, create your own shade – whatever your creativity allows. Complete with: dotting tools, ombre sponge and a striping brush, 6 mini paint pots, assorted glitters and “recipe cards”.
