Every time I write about Ciate nail varnish and their extravagant limited edition kits, the response I get is overwhelming. It appears there’s a huge appreciation for their creativity and unique innovation, especially when they seem to set the trends that appear on the shelves of Boots a few months later. The latest offering from the iconic nail brand is totally on-trend for Summer and includes a lot of neon nail paint, some serious glitter and a hardcore UV finish. These ‘Corrupted Neon Manicure’ kits include a brightly coloured paint pot and corresponding bottle filled to the brim with neon glitter, the aim of which is to sprinkle one over the other for a striking nail result.
If you want to blow the minds of all your friends (I’m talking the
girlie ones that actually care what colour your nails are,) then there’s
even a topcoat which turns the nail varnish bright white under UV
light. Although the glitter is a bit fiddly and messy to apply, the
paint pot varnish creates a great base to really grip it and keep the
glitter in place. The paint pot colours provide a strong result that’s
easy to apply and not too thick, making them delightful to wear alone or
with the topcoats provided. However, what excites me most about these
cute kits is the packs they come in – 3D coatings allow the image to
change, depending how it catches the light, which provides a worryingly
fun experience that’s not unlike a small child playing with the box
their birthday present came in. If you’re looking for a gift, indulgence
for yourself or cheeky payday treat, then you could get a lot of
enjoyment out of this… Both before and after you open it.
Available exclusively in Selfridges this June in two colour combinations, priced £25 per set.
