Ciate Velvet Manicure (Review)

I saw this product at Sephora the other day and found it intriguing.

Ciate Velvet Manicure review by joyz*k joyz of AngelicaBrigade Angelica Brigade Avant Garde Innovative Nails

I was a little skeptical at first; but, then, I read the the instruction on how to achieve velvet-like the effect on the back of the manicure kit’s box.

Since the method sounds very much like how fabric manufacturers produce flock ( = create raised textures on fabrics)*, I thought that this product is going to work.

And …

Does it really work?

The answer is …


In fact, it’s much more than what I expected.

The upper surfaces of my nails look & feel like real velvet

>>> P.S : Sorry for the not-so-good picture. It’s past midnight & my energy saving lamps aren’t able to provide good enough lighting for me to take decent pictures. Please check back tomorrow to see better / clearer pictures of the manicure.  <<<

I’m going to write more about this product (about the manicure’s durability, whether it gets stained easily, etc etc) in a few days. If you are interested to find out, you might want to bookmark my site and check back in couple of days. My blog’s url is https://angelicabrigade.wordpress.com

But, for now, I have nothing but great things to say about this brand (Ciate) and this manicure kit.

It is a truly innovative, avant garde nail product.

To learn more about the brand, please visit the company’s site: http://www.ciate.co.uk
