Chalkboard manicure: draw on your nails!
Caviar Nail Kit connoisseur company Ciaté has released a new product to test the limits of nail art. The launch of their new Chalkboard Manicure Kit has got people talking, especially when it’s being sold at such a fair price, just £25 both at Ciaté and Selfridges. The kit contains the matte black Ciaté chalkboard paint pot; the Ciaté Mattnificient topcoat and four-coloured chalkboard nail art pens.
The concept is simple yet brilliant. The kit carefully combines trends to create the new, whilst still retaining the public’s love of matte textures and self-decoration. One begins with two coats of the matte black Ciaté chalkboard paint pot onto clean nails and leave it to dry completely. Once it’s dry, you can use the four nail art pens to doodle away and draw whatever you like. The remarkable twist of this product is that if you’re not happy with you ‘chalk’ design, you can rinse it off and start again. Only once you are happy with all of your designs do you then apply the matte topcoat, concreting the design and making it like any other manicure.
This is both awesomely cool and innovative, because this ability to modify the designs repeatedly until it’s perfect has not been seen a huge amount in the nail art world until now. Many who are fans of personalised nails will certainly know the trials and tribulations of a steady hand gone array. So the chalk pens provided by Ciaté are quite bulky and by no means the finest, there is still a lot that can be said for them. Perhaps this will lead to a follow up kit with finer tipped pens?
