Nail art is so big right now, we’ve been seeing some of the most creative manicures in the last couple of years! I’ve just discovered the Ciaté Flower Manicure Set, which may not sound like anything new. We’ve seen flowers on nails plenty of times, right? But the Ciaté set includes real dried flowers! In the set you’ll find two containers filled with different types, colors, and sizes in dried flowers. It also comes with a pair of tweezers for precise placement as well as a color polish and a sealing top coat.
To maximize the visual appeal of the flower manicure, I added some press-on nails to what would otherwise look like the hands of a 12-year-old boy. Having longer nails isn’t a must for the flower manicure, but I just figured it would give me more room to play with!
First I added the pink color polish, which by itself is just gorgeous. (The name of the set I have is “Strike-a-Posy.” So cute.) Next, I added a layer of the top coat and added my flowers of choice, but I did this on one nail at a time. Don’t allow the top coat to dry before you apply your flowers; the quicker you’re able to apply, the better it’ll adhere to the top coat. Once I was done adding all the flowers, I went over them with one more coat of the clear polish and let it dry. And to finish, I took the nail file that comes with the kit and gently filed away any excess flowers that were hanging off outside of the nails.
I ended up loving these nails more than I actually thought I would! The color combination of the polish and the assortment of flowers made this festive and fun for spring! Pick up your Ciaté Flower Manicure Kit at Sephora stores or Sephora.com.
