Nail Couture

Lately I have been seeing a huge explosion of nail art creations. While I was in Sephora this set caught my eye: The Ciaté Caviar Manicure. I walked by it a few times, bewitched by the awesome photo on the cover of the box before I decided I couldn’t pass it up.

I love the caviar affect for nails! It is such a fun look and adds a bit of spice to your life.  It is a very easy process to create as well. Start by unpacking the box of fun and use the plastic top as a tray to catch the fall of beads from your nails. Next put a coat of the polish on all of your nails after a base coat. Then one by one you add the second coat to each nail and pour the ‘caviar’ onto your nail and press them firmly onto the nail and then onto the next! Repeat this process on each nail until you achieve your desired effect.

Every nail doesn’t have to be done uniformly ...get creative! Try using a small brush to paint stripes on your nails and add the beads to the stripes or just paint the tips for a luxurious French manicure!

I am so glad that nail art is becoming a renewed fad! I remember when I was younger I loved painting my nails and everyone’s around me! I had an awesome kit and a book with how to paint different animals and designs on your nails.  I loved it! I am glad that I am getting back into this art with a bit more refinement in my technique.

Sephora has a great array of polishes as well as fun design kits. I was also able to get a set of a thin brush to draw designs and a metal tool to put polka dots on your nails. Ciaté has a few other fun 3-D nail art sets as well!
Get creative and have fun! The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy & be beautiful!

  1. This was such fun! Everyone at work kept wanting to touch my nails and was disappointed when it was time to switch polishes. Can't wait to try another!
