Get Creative with Ciaté's New Chalkboard Manicure

It seems like a new creative nail treatment comes out every week these days. I saw a L'Oreal product (I think it was L'Oreal) at Target that makes your nails look fuzzy. That one I don't really get. Why would I want my nails to look like they touched my sweater before they dried?

A new treatment from Ciaté recently caught my attention though because I can see a lot of people just loving the creativity it allows. Their Chalkboard Manicure set allows you to doodle your own design onto the black nail polish. Since I'm expecting a baby girl I'm thinking about how fun something like this would be when she gets older and how much I would have loved this in High School and College. 

The kit contains mini liquid chalk pens, Ciaté Chalkboard Paint Pot, and Mattnificent topcoat. To use just follow this Step-By-Step Guide:
  1. Begin with 2 coats of matte black Ciaté Chalkboard Paint Pot, and allow to dry.
  2. Once dry, take a mini chalk pen and gently press onto the nail to release the liquid chalk.
  3. Ready, set, play! Sketch, doodle and squiggle to your heart’s content (see doodle gallery below for some ideas)
  4. If you make a mistake, simply rinse with water and start again!
  5. Allow to dry and seal your masterpiece with Ciaté Mattnificent topcoat. Remove with regular nail polish remover once you’re ready for a new scribbled style.
This $25 kit is Dibutyl-Phlalate, Toulene, and Formaldehyde free and is currently available at Sephora and online. In August it will be available at Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Henri Bendel, Lord & Taylor, Kitson, Von Maur and The Bay Canada.
