Hey Guys! I am very excited to review and show you how to use Ciate’s Caviar Manicure. I wanted this the moment I saw it but it took me a few months to actually get myself to buy it. When I went into Sephora and they were sold out I start to freak but online they were in stock so I ordered right away. I bought the rainbow version but they also have a black and a white version. This costs $25 and can be purchased from Sephora and Sephora.com.
I was very surprised at how easy this was to use. Included was an instruction card with some different styles to try and tips. The first step to getting a caviar manicure is to paint one of your nails with the Ciate nail polish in Strawberry Milkshake.
Right after you paint a finger you have to shake the caviar over your nails. You need to have the tray included under your fingers before you start applying the caviar or else it caviar beads will go everywhere and you will waste most of the product. Once you have a painted a nail and covered it in Caviar you can move on to the next nail and so on. Once you have finished the first hand, lightly press on the beads over the tray. Some will fill off and the rest will be pressed firmly in their place. After you press on hand repeat the process with the other hand.
It only took me about 10 minutes to do both hands and it was very easy. You don’t have to worry about the base polish looking perfect since they will be covered anyway. Do not apply any top of topcoat since it makes the bead color run and just look horrible. Once you are finished you can use the funnel to pour all of the left over beads back into the bottle to be used for your next manicure.
The caviar manicure looked beautiful for the first hour and then it began to go down hill. After an hour beads started falling off. I am finding all of these little beads everywhere now. By the next morning three of my fingers had lost all of their caviar and my other fingers had large spots of no caviar. This is perfect for a one night event but not longer then that. For example if you have a party on Saturday you have to do them Saturday afternoon, if you do it Friday night you will not be very happy with how it looks. Overall I would recommend this to a friend but keep in mind it does not last long.
