Ciaté Caviar Nails - How To

As you may or may not know, I recently received an order of Ciaté products and jumped at the chance of re-painting my nails straight away.

I bought a 13.5ml bottle in the colour 'Iced Frappe' and a Caviar Manicure Set in 'Mother of Pearl'

Because I couldn't choose as to which item to use first, I decided to paint my nails in 'Iced Frappe' and then use the Caviar set on my ring fingers as an accent nail.

Here is a photo of my nails after painting 3 coats of the 'Iced Frappe'

Once painted, I then waited for my nails to fully dry before painting a fourth coat on my two ring fingers, and proceeded to shake the Caviar beads from the bottle over my nails. The directions that came with the Caviar Manicure Set advised to use the lid as a tray to catch any unused beads in, so this is exactly what I did. I then pressed down gently on my nail to ensure that the beads were securely fastened into place.

The Caviar Manicure Set also came (cleverly) with a funnel so that it was easy to pour the unused beads back into the bottle (and what a life saver that was, with the set costing a lot of money, I am glad that there was an easy way to save any left overs!)

Here is what my nails looked like once finished. What do you think ?

I love them and still can't stop looking at them. The single nail polish in 'Iced Frappe' is also a great colour and one I will definitely be wearing more of during the winter season.

The packaging on the Caviar Manicure Set was so eye catching and cool that after painting my nails, I even thought about sticking the tiny caviar beads to my lips too, but at £18.00 a pack, I thought otherwise as to not wasting the precious little gems.

Have you tried Ciaté nails yet? What do you think of their products?


  1. This definitely looks absolutely amazing! Its probably a bit too faffy for me to try, I'd end up pouring the beads all over the floor and wasting it all. Your nails do look fantastic though :) Xx

  2. I love it!! Have you seen MUA are bringing out a dupe?


  3. I still can't decide whether or not I like this look! I really want to try it out though because it's probably one of those things that looks best when it's right in front of you.

  7. Hello,

    Hannah - The tray & funnel made it much easier to catch any unused beads

    Hema - Thank you x

    Bess - I have seen a few dupes. I am sure that they work just as well. These are too expensive so would look at buying a different make next time

    Danielle - They look better in person. I really don't have a good enough camera to show them properly
