Earlier this month, the amazing people over at Beauty Solutions Trading sent me a gorgeous Ciate Caviar Luxe Manicure to test. You must be familiar with the brand’s Caviar Manicure already but there’s a difference between the two. The three-dimensional Caviar Luxe Manicure collection features a range of metallic shades with gleaming pearls that are bigger and heavier than the original Ciate Caviar micro-beads. There are three jewelry shades to choose from: Gleam for a blush rose gold color, Smoulder that imparts a gleaming platinum look and Lustre which is a glamorous classic gold.
I received the kit in Gleam.
The kit contains all you need to create glamorous and textured nail art. It is so simple too! When I applied it for the first time, I was in such a hurry to leave the house that it didn’t really look all that great however, I kept on staring at my hands the whole time after I put it on. The Gleam Luxe Caviar is perfect for a special occasion or the festive season. I totally rocked it on Valentine’s Day!
I am positive it would look so much better on longer nails! Being the clumsy person that I am, I can never grow my nails too long because I always end up scratching and hurting myself! *doh*
How to apply:
1.) Apply two coats of the base shade color.
2.) While still wet, sprinkle the luxe Caviar into a heavy coat of polish and gently tap into the nail.
3.) Allow 20 minutes for the polish to set, and layer with a top coat to seal the pearls onto the nail.
Be sure to sprinkle the pearls over the tray provided so that it will be easier to pour it back into the bottle with the help of the funnel.
See? Super simple, right?
I can’t wait to try the other shades in the range. They are available exclusively at Sephora for the price of AED 160.
What do you think of Ciate’s Caviar Luxe Manicure? Do you enjoy nail art?
