Ciate, What Will You Come Up With Next?

Hey gorgeous people,

What's up? ♥
I wasn't really going to post today (mind you, I'm in class when writing this, lol.), but yesterday I saw something I had to post for you - although you can still read the previous post if you want to read about something else than nails. Of course, the ones who saw the preview picture might think: "What's so new about the caviar manicure, that's old news!"

Well, technically, there isn't anything new about it. Of course, where I live (in Finland), the caviar set from Ciate (and no, I'm not getting a dime for mentioning it) has only now hit the online stores. So, like me, all the beauty bloggers are buzzing a bit about that. 
However, as I love browsing the Internet for new nail art ideas, this is kind of a used idea for me. (Though, I'm curious to try it, because I haven't yet!)

I mean, look at this! Wouldn't it make a great effect for Halloween manicure?
 I love those little blue beads there!

And of course this colorful one that looks like candy is awesome, too. :) (Seriously, I need to try this. I wonder if I have microbeads at home?)

But more interesting than this is the velvet manicure. Okay, to be fair, I'm not sure I would try this, but I've seen many fun variations of this all over the Internet.

However, I found out that also Ciate has this kit for doing velvet manicure. I tried to find pictures, but Ciate's own ones were kinda bad. Hence, I borrowed these from other websites.

Isn't it cute in this light shade? I really like the way it looks, that would be perfect for Winter with comfy knits! ♥

Also this burgundy shade is great for a funky Autumn/Winter manicure. The more I look at these pictures, the more I'm actually changing my mind about trying these. (Though I will probably do them in more affortable way - and will provide a tutorial for sure!)

But the one I was actually coming to tell you about is something I spotted on IG last night (some lucky lady got a set in advance):

Ciate Sequin Manicure Set ♥

If you know me, you know I love bling and glitter, and to me, this looks super cool! This set is supposed to launch next month (October), so it's just in time for the whole holiday/Winter party season. I don't know how different it will be to a regular glitter manicure, but I'm excited to see swatches of these sets!

I managed to find two pictures for you of the packages, and I really love the idea of having sequined shoes on the cover of these.

So, they're supposed to be super shiny and fabulous - totally appropriate for all the parties one could have this Winter season. (If you want to read more about the sequin manicure, go to BecomeGorgeous website for more information.)

What do you think about Ciate's sets? Which one is your favorite? Have you tried any of these, or if you haven't, would you?

And mom, if you're reading this, don't worry, it was just a useless class I spent for writing this. No one else did anything useful, either. :D

    1. I could never forget you, dear! I've been just so busy - shame on me, that's such a lousy excuse - that I haven't got around with comments. I try to visit more often, though! ♥

  10. I love trying out new trends and concepts on my nails, so have been thinking about trying caviar nails for a while, but Ciate's sets are just so expensive! I am seriously tempted by their velvet manicure kits, though, such a pretty effect! xx

    1. I know, they have major prices... Just looked them today at a web shop, but ordered regular micro beads instead - so much more affordable! ♥
