Ciate Caviar Manicure

After seeing the Ciaté Caviar Manicure on Sephora's website I had to try it out. The concept is very cool and modern...tiny beads create an effect I had yet to see in manicure sets. So now here is the good, the bad and unfortunately the ugly:

The Good-The first few hours the beads look very nice. The process is two step, first polish then another layer of polish helps to adhere the beads. The beads are initially a shiny black and blue. 

The Bad-After about half a day the beads start to fade. As you wash your hands the shiny finish dulls and the blue beads turned gray. 

The Ugly-While the box says this manicure lasts 48 hours, before the 24 hour mark many of the beads began to fall off of mine. I only did my ring finger on each hand and on both of them I had huge gaps where beads had once been. 

My take on the Ciaté Caviar Manicure set is that if you have a special function to attend it is a nice look. Just do your nails right before you leave the house and try not to overuse them!
