From Shellac finishes and sleek ombre, to matte manis and polish strips with no drying time, our nails have tried and survived just about every trend. Now, it’s time to step it up a notch with some 3-D flair that’s a perfect combo of creativity and class. We’re talking caviar, baby! That’s right – the upper crust delicacy is the inspiration behind Ciaté’s latest British invasion, the Caviar Manicure.
Charlotte Knight, creative director of the London-based nail, hand, and foot care company, developed a delicate take on textured nails that takes just three steps to apply. Just lacquer up your nails with two coats of the varnish included in your kit, sprinkle and press the compact Caviar pearls on your nails while wet, and let dry for 20 minutes tops; no top coat required. Adorn all digits in the Caviar pearls, or conserve the beads by dressing up just a few of your tips. Finally, a method that allows do-it-yourself nail novices to achieve a professional finish without an extended nail shop stay. There’s no fancy nail art pens, no ombre blends to achieve, no foil to cut and measure for a gilded French tip: just a few shakes for one of the hautest trends of the season.
What’s best is that the entire Ciaté nail line (Caviar manicure kits, too), are free of the toxic nail trifecta: no DBP, no formaldehyde resin, and no camphor here. At just $25, you can indulge in your fiungertip fix in Mother of Pearl, Rainbow or Black at Sephora. And by the time you master this Caviar craze, head back to Ciaté for what’s sure to take over fingers and toes in the fall: smooth, lush Velvet manicures.
