Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure

Thursday, 18 April 2013

Let me start of by staying...I've not had this much fun with nail polish/art in a long time or possibly ever!

Ciate have hit the nail on the head again with their innovate nail art. Let me introduce you to the Chalkboard Manicure...

This adorable kit contains 2 polishes, 1 x Black matte polish and 1 x top and 4 x liquid chalk pens.

It's super simple, you just paint on the black matte polish on, leave it to dry (1-2 mins, it's fast!), take the liquid chalk pens, push down a few times to get the colour flowing and doodle away until your heart is content.

Don't like your design? No problemo...just take a cotton pad with a little water, wipe it off and start all over again! When you're happy with your design , pop on the top coat and you're ready to go..

I was actually quite surprised how easy to chalk pens were to use, I had images of smudged lines and clumsy designs..but the nib is similar to a ball point pen and as you can see below the lines were clear and there was no smudges just my dodgy doodles.

If you feel like treating yourself, or need a gift for a friend I recommend you pick a kit up, it will give you endless hours of fun!

Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure is available from Selfridges this Saturday 20th April priced £25*
