My little Ciaté collection (so far)

Hey everyone,

So here we go :)

Last but definitely not least, the only thing I did not buy. I received this little something from Ciaté Germany.

DSC05231

DSC05452

Which were a key holder, the full sized paint pot PP107 – pocket money and the mini glass file from Ciaté.
Again, thanks a lot for that. I was and still am very happy about it.

 

wheeeeee that was a lot haha

I hope you like my little update on my Ciaté collection.

Now the only thing missing is the Nail lab, but sadly that thing is a bit expensive.

But look what’s in it, the perfect things to play around with and mix your own polishes.

Any recommendations on what I should buy next?

HAULy friday – fourteen – Ciaté will make me poor

Hey everyone,

I am so excited I can’t even tell you haha

I recently went on ASOS to buy something for a very good friend of mine in Japan. I also checked the Ciaté section and what did I see?

A Bargain!

The Caviar manicure Luxury kit and the Emerald collection kit.
First was only about 8 euro (original 22 euro) and the second was only 15 euro (normally 30 euro).
If you ask me, a total steal :D

CAVIAR LUXE “gold” – MANICURE SET

IMG_0156

IMG_0157

 

PP050 – ladylike luxe (left) and caviar luxe pearls – lustre (right), also with a gold funnel ;)

IMG_0161

IMG_0162

 

Somehow the pearl bottle is much heavier then the normal ones, but I saw it contains 60g instead of only 20g like the normal pearls.
Maybe it is real gold and I should sell it ($_$) mwahahaha

 

Emerald Collection

IMG_0158

IMG_0159

I liked the saying in the packaging so I cut and kept it

IMG_0159s

 

 

IMG_0160

This set contains four full sized products.

  • PP060 – ditch the heels
  • caviar pearls – ball gown
  • luxury crushed velvet in green
  • Sequins in the color Penthouse ( a mix of green and gold)

It also contains a funnel and a small brush for the velvet and Sequins.

I love this kit, it is really gorgeous and I wanted it to buy for so long, but 30 euro is a lot, so I am super happy about the great deal I got.

The other day I also went to my local Karstadt. As I told you many times before, they often have great deals on the Ciaté kits as well.
I already own two of the feathered manicure kits, the chalkboard kit, one caviar manicure kit, as well as the tree trinkets and the x-mas calender which I bought in New York in January.

Just that day I read that there is a Karstadt only kit, which is similar to the caviar manicure but is basically used with crushed shells :D

When I saw the PR pictures I got all excited. I needed to have this!
I checked out the color options online. They sell a white kit, a pink kit and a kind of more purple kit.

The following pictures were taken from Karstadt Website. I you want to buy the kit go online here

Ciate white 1

Ciate white 2

Ciate pink 1

Ciate purple 1

I also checked them in the store and decided on the purple kit.

Same as the caviar kits this one conatins a full sized paint pot, which in my case was PP103 – pillow fight and the crushed sea shells CRS001 – mermaid you look. In the PR picture the shells look mus pinker and lighter, so if you wanna buy the kit take the chance (if you can) and check the real color in store. I think it makes a big difference, because the appearing pink/rose shells look definitely purple in “real life”.

Nevertheless a great kit which I can’t wait to try out!

When I reviewed the colorfoil manicure kit I was so excited about how easy it was that I decided to also buy the other two kits with different colored paint pots and foils.

So that’s what I did :)

and to remind you, this is the kit I already owned

DSC05255

DSC05256

This kit came with PP082 – cream soda

DSC06127

They also each come with a nail wheel to try out designs and a foil fix, which is a glue.

Also if you remember, a while ago I told you that I bought a paint pot which was discounted by half because the bow was ripped off the label. Well this time there was a polish in perfect condition, but it was also discounted by half. Why? I have no clue, but I also don’t care haha
Do I have to tell you I also bought this one? I didn’t think so :P

PP058 – cookies and cream

IMG_0359

IMG_0360

And theeeeeen I also saw that they had discounted a lot of the care products from Ciaté as well, so I decided to give the nail tonic strengthener a try and  bought this one as well.

IMG_0361

IMG_0374

 

whew that was a lot haha

Since my Ciaté collections is huge now, I will show the whole collection to you tomorrow.
I hope you like this post.

Any specific nail colors from Ciaté you would recommend to me?

I know I will definitely have to buy skinny dip and some other…..I can not decide – HELP!

 

Have a great Friday!

Sunday Mani – ten – Ciaté Colorfoil Manicure

Hello everyone,

as promised yesterday I did the colorfoil manicure by Ciaté.

Very Colorfoil Manicure Kit – Wonderland is what I used.

DSC05255

On top of the box you can see the foils that are included in the kit.
Not much BAM! going on there but I found the simple / discreet kit the most interesting one.

DSC05256

Let’s see what is inside this little box of happiness.
We have one nail wheel (to try out different designs), we have a full sized pain pot (PP082 cream soda), a small bottle of foil fix (glue) and a pack full of foils in the colors as shown above. Oh and of course the manual.

DSC05257

DSC05259

 

Like I said yesterday, I painted my nails with one coat of my normal base coat and applied two coats of the base color cream soda.
I let it dry properly so I would mess up anything later on while pushing the foils onto my nails.

DSC06127

DSC06128

DSC06129

DSC06130

DSC06131

DSC06132

After everything was totally dry, it was time to get it on with the foils :P

DSC06133

DSC06134

First I applied a bit of the foil fix. Since it is equipped with a pretty thick brush, I made sure to have just a tiny amount of the foil fix on the brush when applying it to the nail. I also did NOT apply it all over the nail, instead I put tiny drops or strokes of foil fix on the nail. Since you are supposed to let the white foil fix dry for about a minute until it gets clear to pressing on some foil, I realized I could also apply foil fix on each nail of one hand and then go back to the first nail where the foil fix already dried to press some foil on.
I hope I explained that correct haha

Anyways, it is simple.

  • apply foil fix, let it dry for about a minute
  • press on the foil you want to use
  • don’t wait to long, rip it off immediately
  • move on to the next nail
  • after you are done, repeat the steps with as many different colored foils as you like
  • after you are done put on a top coat, this is necessary because else the foil will come off after the first time you wash your hands :P

Here is my result

Here you can see the foils I used and how they looked afterwards. First I used the silver one, then orange, pink and green.

DSC06136

I must say I freaking love this kit and I will probably get the other ones as well if they are still on sale at my local Karstadt.
I bought this kit for 10 euro so I hope I can get the other two as well for this price.

Have you tried this manicure? I was really surprised how easy it was and how well it worked.
Even if you don’t have much patience or experience with such things, I still recommend you to try this.

Have a great sunday
