Ciate Very Colourfoil Manicure

Monday, January 28, 2013

I have something a little different to share with you today - the Ciaté Very Colorfoil Manicure set. This manicure set is coming soon and will be available exclusively at Sephora for $19.

The Very Colourfoil Manicure is complete with a Ciaté pro formula paint pot, glue and metallic "Colourfoil" sheets in three brilliant shades. There are 30 sheets of foil in the set. It also comes with a nail wheel to practice your foiling techniques. The set I am sharing today is the Wonderland. There are three kits to choose from - Wonderland, Carnival Couture and Kaleidoscope Klash. I will be sharing Kaleidoscope Klash in the next couple of days.

Ciaté’s Creative Director Charlotte Knight was inspired by gleaming metallic accessories, models wrapped head-to-toe in luxe foil shades at London Fashion Week, and unique-fashion street-styling to create this inspirational nail kit.

The Wonderland kit has a light gray polish called Cream Soda to use as a base color.

The instructions were easy to follow and Ciaté polishes have a wonderful formula. Simply apply your base color and let it dry completely. I used a top coat of Seche Vite fast dry top coat to speed  up the process.

Apply a thin, even coat of the glue to the area of your nail where you want the foil. It is important that the glue is even or the foil application won't be even. Let the glue dry about a minute until it is clear. Place the foil on the nail and press firmly and evenly. Remove the foil sheet quickly.

Repeat on each nail and apply as many colors of foil as desired. If you are going to layer the polish on top of each other make sure to use a top coat between foiling.

Finish with a top coat and you have nail art with texture, color and uniqueness.

I think the foil has an abstract look. It almost appears as if the foil is brushed on with a paint brush. What would you create with this kit? Colorblock? Abstract?

  3. I tried tge colourfoil set yesterday. I had to try the holographic sheet. It looked gorgous! When i added topcoat, the holographic effect completely dissapeared.
    I tried an other topcoat, with same results.

    Do you have any experiences??

    1. The topcoat definitely changed mine. Although when I used a thin coat it wasn't too noticeable.
