Some Champagne? Caviar... Nails?Wednesday, February 06, 2013
I know that this Ciate Caviar Manicure was such a big thing last year, but it didn't interest me that much until recently. I have always been curious about how they did it, and when I saw a YouTube video on how to use Ciate's "supposed" patented Caviar nails, I wanted to get my hands on one.
Since it's not so easy to get one here in Manila, I decided to look on Ebay USA because, 1. They have more choices, and 2. I have packages coming in from New York every 2 weeks anyway. As soon as I typed in "Ciate Caviar Manicure" on the search bar, literally hundreds of them popped up in results. I couldn't believe that they cost that much! Come on, $25.00 -and some much more (PhP 1,025), per color and those bead things? I mean, I would gladly pay that amount (and more) for Chanel Nail Lacquer, but not for such a novelty/fad product. Although I must admit, their colors are fantastic!
So, I scratched Ciate off my list and tried to forget about it. Until recently. I was in Landmark the other day buying polish remover, and that's when I came across these microbeads from Amie Magic Beauty. For a pack of 6 tiny (yes, unfortunately tiny) bottles, it costs PhP 139.95 ($3.40). I was ecstatic! I asked the sales lady if they sold bottles per color, but unfortunately, they come in 6 different colors per pack.
To do this nail art, you will need the microbeads (color of your choice of course):
Sorry, the pack had a double in color so I only photographed 5 of these. I bought 2 packs so I could get the other colors so I can show you how easy the caviar nails are to do!
