Manicure Monday #4 | Ciate Caviar Pearls

This set was available free with Marie Claire, I was super excited to get my hands on the caviar pearl since I haven't tried them before. Everyone's reviews on these seem very mixed so I didn't want to spend money on them and I'm so glad I didn't. The cookies and cream polish was very pretty a lovely neutral shade that applied in a few coats and I love ciate as a brand supplying a high quality polish but the caviar pearls just aren't a winner for me don't get me wrong they look pretty and are definitely quite unique - you don't see a lot of people wearing them. But the disadvantage of them is they are messy, take a lot of time to do, don't always apply on the nail evenly and fall of very easily and quickly. They are for some people but certainly not for me will I be buying any no. If I won any I'd definitely like to experiment. But with something like this I don't feel like it's money well spent for me personally.

I got this set ages ago and is no longer available free with a magazine but you can purchase the Ciate caviar pearls online at the website.

Please enter my two giveaways. You win Kardashian Beauty goodies and more with both.


  1. Oh wow it looks so pretty on your nails Kate, but I agree it doesn't seem like good value - maybe just good for one off wear! xx

    1. Yeah there alright for jazzing your nails up for a night out or something but definitely not feeling it for a few days wear x

  2. These look lovely!! Exactly in the same boat here, they look so nice but not really for me, maybe for a special one of event, but cant really get away with it for regular use. The ciate baby pink and baby blue sets are sooo nice, so tempted to get some but with me I think it will just be a waste
