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.

A fun way to accessorize any outfit as quickly as possible is through statement jewelry; One or two pieces that speak for themselves, as well as the entire outfit. Rings aren’t typically the first accessory we picture when thinking of statement jewelry. However, they can play up any other accessory. A simple gold charm necklace stands
out even more with a chunky bauble ring.

Above are my recent purchases. I stumbled upon this fun crystal piece, which really adds a fun twist to whatever I’m wearing, at Forever 21
for only 6$! Same with the set of dainty gold knuckle rings. Only $5 at Forever 21, these little guys draw attention instantly! And as a bonus, they make your mani look fabulous!

If you’re in a relationship and low on cash, a great way to spend time together and have fun while saving money is having a night in! What better way to spend the night in than baking dessert?! I found this molten lava cake kit at Aldi, and it tastes delicious. Just mix the ingredients together, cook in a muffin tin, and top it off with ice cream! Perfection.
