Hiya Poutlings!

I LOVE Volt Cafe’s beauty editorials.

This is a particulary great take on the ever-so popular gold theme everyone-and-their-mother is doing nowadays.

It’s the new thing girls!



It made its début on the runway for Cushnie Et Oche.  Ciate have however made a range which all us nail art lovers can now achieve by ourselves.


You have to admit though, nail caviar has quickly grabbed the nail art scene by storm. First it was water marble nail art, then it was followed by ombré nails (which is still very much in).20120623-211944.jpg

If you can’t get hold of Ciate products, you can do your own nail DIY project at home. Use your favorite nail colour and apply some beads while it’s still wet, press down and let dry. Obviously you have to buy some small ass beads at a craft store.20120623-211949.jpg

The Ciate range comes in three colors; rainbow, black and mother of pearl. It’s been said that ranges might expand in colors due to demand!


Will it make or break the nail art world? It’s gonna be a biatch to remove me thinks. Unless you soak it off with cotton and tin foil. And I can see nail biters having a feast nibbling on the not-so-tasty bits!


Thing is, it looks pretty amazing.







Love it or hate it?  Will it be trending your fingers?
