Beauty trend: high fashion 3D nail art

One particular area of the beauty world that has been dishing out innovation with sheer abandon is the nail sector. I wrote a blog post back in May 2011 entitled Everyone’s Talking About Nails, and it appears that almost a year later, they still are!

Something that’s really caught my eye though comes from the gorgeous girly nail brand Ciate, which is launching its Caviar Manicure next month. Bringing high fashion 3D nail art to the home, the Ciate Caviar Manicure comes with a pot of teeny colourful ‘caviar’ pearls that can be poured onto freshly painted nails then gently pressed down. An accompanying tray stops the pearls going everywhere and a tiny funnel allows the pearl balls to be poured back into the pot afterwards.

I love, love, love this idea. Although I’m a little concerned as to what would happen if I absentmindedly chewed on a nail; maybe Ciate should bring out an edible sweetie version – a bit like the top of a fab lolly, yum!


  1. I really want to try this idea, it's a bit different to some of the other nail art you see around.

  2. I would want to eat my own nails, Fab lollies were my favourite as a child!! xx
