NOTD: Ciate Caviar Manicure
Hey guys! With exams coming up, I've had to spend time revising. Or, more likely, procrastinating. So I decided to try Ciate's Caviar Pearls in 'Frost Yourself'. Also on the topic of exams, if you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I'm looking for some people to guest post on my blog. I may not have the time in the months of May and June to post as much but I'd like my blog to remain active. So if you'd like to help me out and get your blog noticed by a few more people, drop me an email and I'll get back to you!
I got these two colours in the advent calendar they had out at Christmas which is still available on Fragrance Direct, but you can also buy other Caviar sets on the Ciate website. You may or may not know that I am a lover of Ciate nail polishes. They do some amazing shades and the nail polishes dry reasonably quickly and don't tend to chip that easily. Plus, they have a load of really cool sets like the velvet manicure and corrupted neon set.
I chose to wear this blue colour originally because I thought it was quite Spring appropriate but since I was bored, I decided to try out the Caviar Pearls as well. I was surprised at them since I thought after one use half the pot would be gone but there are actually a lot more pearls in that pot than you might think. And they also move a lot further and faster than you might think. I'd say there are more of them on my carpet than on my nails. So definitely have something underneath your hand because you have to tip it onto your nail and obviously a lot don't go onto your nail. you then tip the remainder off the paper and into the funnel to make it easier for you to get them back in the pot. Maybe make some kind of walls around your paper to stop them from flying everywhere out of books or something because I'm telling you, they literally go everywhere. I also didn't read the instructions for how you're supposed to use these, so I'm just guessing that you should apply a topcoat, which i did. I used a Ciate topcoat, unsurprisingly.
So I really like how these look and I think it makes what was just a normal colour into something really interesting and that isn't often seen on people's nails. I'm not actually going anywhere so nobody is going to see all the effort I went to, but who cares? I can stare at my nails constantly now and be happy.
End of Ciate appreciation post. Sometimes I feel like it sounds like they sponsor me or something, I talk about them so much. They don't, promise. Let me know your opinions of the Caviar Pearls! Also remember to drop me an email if you're interested in guest posting on my blog during May / June!
