Ciaté is known for its fun and eccentric nail trends, most of which are more pretty than practical. So when I stumbled upon this nail kit I knew I had to try it! It comes with a nail poilsh, multiple foils, foil glue and plastic nails to swatch.

The manicure itself is fairly easy, however it can be time consuming depending on the effect you want to achieve. You paint your nails and let them dry. Then you take the foil glue, dab it on in the desired area and let it partially dry. While its tacky, you place the foil shiny side up on the glue, press down and remove quickly. You’ll be left with an abstract sparkly piece of foil! Repeat the above steps several times on the same nail with different foils to create a mosaic look. Then, seal with a top coat.

I adore this manicure. I think it’s much more practical than the caviar or velvet nail kits. My only issue with it is that it lasted one day. I definitely recommend multiple top coats, and I think that will solve the one-day problem. Next time I plan to do the foils over a black nail for a more intense result.
