Reviewed! Ciaté Velvet Manicure

I’d heard amazing things about the brand and a Ciaté product had been on my wish list for sometime. I had not heard of the Velvet Manicure and only discovered it while trolling the aisles of a Sephora in Dubai recently. And since I was looking to splurge and buy something from the brand anyway, I thought why not a manicure kit. In terms of versatility and value for money it made more sense; I could use the whole kit, or just the nail paint on its own to achieve two very different looks. So I went ahead and picked up a Velvet Manicure in Blue Suede.

My current list of play things looks something like this
