Ciate Denim Manicure // Take one!

Ciate denim manicure £12*

If you know me at all, you'll know that I'm useless when it comes to nails. Past a regular trim and an occasional lathering of cuticle cream, I don't even groom them. This is mainly because of limitations within my line of work, but also because I have no patience, and my hands must be the least steady of all. So when this Ciate denim kit landed on my doorstep, I was tentative. I know I'm rubbish at this stuff, but seeing as I've graduated and thus have far too much time on my hands, I sat down and prepared myself for a good laugh. 

Well, although I bit my tongue in concentration throughout, I managed to complete this entire 'manicure' in under 20 minutes. I was firstly surprised at how quickly this pretty Ciate nail polish dried, but I'm even more impressed with the brush! I wish all nail polishes had thick, wide brushes like this one, its so simple to use, even for a novice like myself! The transfers were also super easy to use. If you know where I can find more of these similar, let me know! 
One thing I'm not sure about though, is the studs - Some were too big to use, and one of them reminds me of cheerios (always got food on the mind, me)! If I do this again I think I'll go without, or just use the silver pyramid studs like the ones on my thumb!

What do you think?
Is this something you'd attempt?

  1. Hooray--another fellow fashion blogger in healthcare! It really tickles me to find similar people :) I am in dentistry :) And from now on will be following you! BTW, love the nails, they really do look like denim. If i had the time, I would absolutely attempt the fun designs that I see everywhere now. Until then, I'll keep drooling over them like I am right now!!

  3. I really like this! I love nails, and I'm useless at nail art so easy props like transfers and studs (although they definitely do look like cheerios!) are a win with me! xx

  8. Aha! They do sort of look like Cheerios! Brava for managing this manicure because just looking at makes me tilt my head to the side and go "How the heck did she do that?!" It's very cool!
