Haute Nail Trend Alert! Look at what arrived in my inbox a few days ago – the Latest Beauty Update from Maskscara’s lovely Eleni & Team! If you’ve loved all the beauty brands she’s previously brought to SA shores – you are going to drool over this one! Mavens prepare to be blown away by the famous and coveted Ciaté Caviar Manicure.
Created in London, this one-of-a-kind nail art innovation brings avant-garde runway nails to your fingertips. Featuring pearlescent beads for a 3-D effect, this kit includes everything you need to become an instant nail connoisseur.
The inspiration behind the Caviar Manicure™ came about when Charlotte, Ciaté’s Creative Director, was looking to create 3-dimensional nails for a front cover magazine shoot and wanted to develop something feminine, indulgent yet delicately extravagant.
The finished effect gives nails an instant gorgeous and very sophisticated look. Enough said! I cannot wait to Caviar my nails! First shipment is expected to arrive early June. Just in time for my holiday – I hope! Watch out for my next Haute Nails post where I will be giving you more details on the Ciaté Caviar Manicure™ Kits and the application process.
Can you imagine my excitement when I received the following email from Eleni last Tuesday? :-
“GOOD NEWS I HAVE RECEIVED TWO SAMPLES OF THE CAVIAR MANICURE – THE WHITE AND RAINBOW ONLY THOUGH, WAS SO HOPING TO GET THE BLACK ONE BUT APPARENTLY KIM KARDASHIAN IS MORE IMPORTANT AND RECEIVED THE LAST BOX – LOL! IT HAS BEEN SO POPULAR THEY HAVE ALREADY SOLD OUT IN THE UK. ANY WAY LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE YOUR NAILS DONE…”
OMG ! Can you say Amazeballs?!! I am really so honoured to have been the first in SA to experience the Ciate Caviar Manicure. Mooi Nooi, a little pamper beauty boutique in Aurora, was kind enough to host us.
I could not believe how quick and easy it was! The Ciate Caviar Manicure is literally a three-step radical nail art kit that gives you head-turning results. Apply – Sprinkle – Press!
The Ciaté paint pots with bows are just adorable and adds a special touch! There are dozens of amazing colours to choose from! I chose to have the White Caviar Manicure as it complements my very tanned complexion and white is one of my personal favourites for 2011/12! The whole process took less than 30 minutes (excluding drying time) and The Results were Amazing!!!!
And turn heads? It did! Everyone loved it including hubby who could not stop taking pics! If you’re looking for statement nails – here’s your answer! I really put my Caviar Manicure to the test by tackling my daily chores as per usual which included preparing meals and doing the odd dishes etc and my cavi-mani lasted a good four days! I was extremely happy with that! You could definitely get five if you made a small effort to be careful. I cannot wait to try out the red!
