6 x mini polishes (Mistress, Pillow Fight, Rain Coat, Ferris Wheel, Power Dressing & Amazing Gracie)
4 empty mini paint pot bottles
6 x suspension top coats
12 x 5g Glitters
7 x professional nail tools (1 scooper, 2 mini test tubes, 1 petri dish, 1 funnel, 1 mini nail file, 1 roll of customisable labels)
This is probably the product I wanted the most right after I saw it on the PR information. I mean come on, for a nail polish junkie like me this set is heaven. Who doesn’t want to mix their own polishes?
With time I also collected and tried some of their nail care products and base / top coats.
Ciaté – Nail Tonic (nail strengthener)
Ciaté – Mattnifficent (matte top coat)

Be careful not to keep the matte top coat for too long or it might get ruined. It happened to mine after about 1 and a half years.
Ciaté – Speed Coat (fast dry top coat)
This is probably the best fast drying top coat I have tried. It dries the nail polish to a good amount within 30 – 60 seconds I would say. Would definitely recommend it to any of you and will keep buying it myself.

Ciaté – love me oil (almond cuticle oil)
I simply love this cuticle oil. I am a big fan of almond products and I feel this oil is moisturizing and nurishing. It is quickly applied and the cuticles soak it in pretty fast.
I also love the cuticle butter from Burt’s Bees, but I don’t use it too much because I don’t like wasting the product by having to apply it with my finger.
Do you own any other Ciaté polishes or products in general, which I should try?
only a few days left until this years Ciaté Month is over. I would love to read what you think and if you liked it. Please let me know in the comments below or on my other Social Media Sites.
Today I would like to review Ciaté’s Corrupted Neons Kits.
Usually the loose neon glitters I am going to review today are only available in the corrupted neons kits. They come in four different colors and include a mini polish, a full sized bottle of loose glitter and a mini bottle of black light top coat.
Let’s take a look at the available kits (top to bottom)
Corrupted Neon Manicure Megaphone
Corrupted Neon Manicure Club Tropicana
Corrupted Neon Manicure Shout out
Corrupted Neon Manicure Foam Party
I got mine seperately at TKmaxx though. I bought the following three:
10g – Megaphone Neon Glitter
10g – Club Tropicana Neon Glitter
10g – Foam Party Neon Glitter
I really love how bright these glitters are. Depending on which base color you apply them they loose a bit of their brightness though. I applied over Ciaté’s sass pott and used different placements and also neon studs to brighten up this manicure.
To achieve this look you simply add tape at the parts where you want to keep the base color. Carefully add a layer of clear top coat where you want the glitter to stick. I made sure not to apply to much on the tape because it would we a waste of glitter since it would stick to the tape. Immediately add the glitter and while everything is still wet, carefully take off the tape. If there is some glitter poking out of the straight line, poke it back in place to get a clear edge.
Add small dots of clear polish to make the studs stick to your nail and you are done. I did not use any top coat to seal in the glitter, since I don’t like the way it looks.
How do you like the result?
If you are interested in buying these kits, they are still available at the Ciate USA Webiste.
welcome to the third day of my Birthday nail art month.
Since I want to show you something different everyday, I decided for statement nails today.
I don’t know if I told you, but I really like Beyoncé. I saw her live last year in May and it was amazing. I guess I don’t have to tell you that I went nuts when she secretly dropped her visual Album.
Today’s nail art is inspired by one of the songs and the video to it. The song is called “Blow” and the video is super fun and bright with lots of neon colors. If I am not mistaken, they even used Ciaté’s corrupted neon kit on all the girls on set.
I can not begin to tell you how excited I was to try out my new Ciaté kit (corrupted neons). As you know, I bought the one with the yellow polish and the loos yellow glitter. This was also the perfect chance to try out some of the glitter I bought in January at Micheal’s Arts and Crafts during my stay in New York.
The only actual polish I used was the one from the kit, it’s PP065 – big yellow taxi.
What else I used? Glitter, tons of it^^
Ciaté – megaphone – neon glitter
Michael’s Arts and Crafts – Recollections™ Signature Glitter & Microbead Set- Peacock
Michael’s Arts and Crafts – Recollections™ Signature Glitter & Microbead Set – Muse
Michael’s Arts and Crafts – Recollections™ Signature Glitter & Microbead Set – Bubblegum
Michael’s Arts and Crafts – Recollections™ Signature Glitter & Microbead Set – Emerald
You can get the whole Recollections™ Signature Glitter & Microbead Set here. It was $ 29,99.
This manicure is actually pretty simple. I started by applying two coats of PP065 – big yellow taxi and let it dry in between the two coats.
The second coat was applied one nail at a time, because while the polish was still wet I applied the yellow neon glitter. Make sure to use something under the nail while applying the glitter so you can put the glitter back using a funnel. I always use a small plastic tray that was the packaging of other Ciaté kits. When all the nails are covered in glitter, take a wide fan brush to brush off the access glitter.
Let everything dry and take a nice liquid clear top coat afterwards. I used an very thin paintbrush which I trimmed myself to apply the clear polish. Again, one nail at a time, I wrote a B, an L, the O and the W for BLOW each time using a different glitter and putting it on top. You really have to be sure that the polish below and the yellow glitter are dry, else you will ruin the whole Manicure.
For me it worked very well as you can see and I really love the result.
I did not use a top coat for this but you probably should if you plan on wearing it for longer. You can also use the “black light” top coat which came with this kit.
How do you like this Manicure?
