One thing I'm not so good at is nail art. When I saw that Ciate were launching a foil effect nail kit, I knew I had to get one. So after a quick lunchtime walk (run) to Selfridges, I picked up a Colourfoil kit in the shade Carnival Couture (there are currently 3 to choose from).
Each kit contains: a full size Ciate nail polish, 30 sheets of foils (5 of each colour), foil glue, instructions and a plastic nail wheel.
|Forgive me for the used foils - as you can see, you can get more than one application out of each foil|
|I used a GOSH polish as the base for my nails here.|
These are really simple to use, and nowhere near as messy as the sequin kit that I bought from them before Christmas. You will end up with a little excess foil around your nail beds, but this will easily wash off as it's not been protected by a topcoat.
Another bonus is that they are really easy to remove. I was having sequin removal flashbacks, but the Colourfoils actually came off in seconds using my trusty Bourgois 1 second remover pot.
All in all I'm really happy with this kit and will definitely be using it again and again. They retail for £18 and are currently exclusive to Selfridges, but can be bought online if you can't get to a Selfridges store.
What do you think of Ciate's Colourfoil kits?
