Ciaté Velvet Manicure Review

Ciaté Velvet Manicure

I was extremely excited to try Ciaté's Velvet Manicure this week. Don't judge me--I'm easily excited! After applying and wearing it for a day however, I can honestly say it's okay. Just okay.

The Good: The nail varnish and velvet textured sprinkles are super easy to apply and they stick.After washing my hands and dishes several times today the majority of the velvet flakes are still intact so this isn't just a one day look.

The Bad: The base coat color looks a bit dull and cheap which saddens me; I was looking forward to wearing it by itself.

The Ugly Truth: The textured effect leaves my nails feeling hairy to the touch. It's downright sort of gross, especially when you're used to touching your face or, God forbid, other people.

I think it's okay... It looks cute but I don't know if I'm down with hairy nails.

I would have been happier if I had paid, say, $9 for this instead of $19 at Sephora.
