Review #15: Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure

3:26 AM




Hi Beautiful!

Have you ever heard about Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure? Well, I haven't too actually, until my brother gave me this manicure set as present. Ciate Chalkboard manicure is the first nail kit which transforms your nails into a chalkboard canvas to play, sketch and doodle. How cool is that? I was so excited when i got this, so when I got home I asked my mom if I could apply this to her nails and she said yes!

Inside the kit:
1 Black Chalkboard Nail Polish 
1 Mattnificent Matte Top Coat
4 Coloured Chalk Pens ( blue, yellow, pink, white)

Usage:
  • Begin with two coats of the matte black Ciaté Chalkboard Paint Pot onto clean dry nails.
  • Get your chalk pens ready by shaking and gently pressing the nib to a hard surface which will release the liquid chalk.
  • Once your nails are completely dry, select a chalk pen and gently press onto the nail to create your design.
  • Get ready to play! Sketch, doodle and squiggle to your heart’s content.
  • If you made a mistake, simply wipe down the nail with water and start again within 30 seconds.
  • Once you’ve done, allow to dry and seal in your chalk design with a topcoat of the enclosed Ciaté Mattnificent.

My Experience with Ciaté  Chalkboard Manicure:
  • The Black chalkboard nail polish dry super fast on my nail, less than a minute.
  • Applying this manicure set wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. The yellow ink wont come out after I shook the pen. And when it finally out, it was leaking. 
  • Another problem was the tip of the pen is too big and difficult to use for people with a short nail. For sure, I couldn't make any detailed manicure design with this. 
  • Fixing the design is not as simple as wiping the nail with water. Other than pink, the rest of the colors would not budge.
  • From other reviews that I read, I can conclude this nail polish is not long lasting. Some even said the colors was chipped less than a day. 
  • The black polish stains the nails. So I am not very happy with that. 
Final thought, I have to admit the whole idea of this manicure kit is fun and interesting and people with artsy manicure skill would get more benefit using this Ciaté Chalkboard Manicure. On the other hand, people like me, will get nothing other than messy nails. If the tip of the pen is more pointy, I think I would get more luck, I am sure of that. Nevertheless, beside the leaking pen and the giant tip of the pen, I had so much fun with my mom playing this manicure kit. We felt like we back to kindergarten and learned how to coloring a book. Cheers!


My gratitude for today:
I am thankful for loyal friends and their companionship

  3. As much as I ADORE Ciaté and their forward thinking approach to nail polishes I must admit that this never really appealed to me. I think Revlon does something similar and it's a fun concept :o) Xx
