I saw some of the models on the runway for the Monique Lhullier Fall 2012 Show and all the models had an unusual manicure. They were wearing a velevet manicurte that caught my eye. I happen to be in Sephora one day and saw the product on the shelves from Ciate, I decided to give it a try. I must admit I was a little skeptical because it is a bit on the pricey side. Once I tried it, it was so unusual that it looked and felt like velvet. I do have to admit I am not a big fan because it almost looks like you're growing fungus on your nails. I don't if it maybe has to do with the color I chose, but I am not a big fan. I am glad I tried it but I don't see myself repurchasing it.
If you want to try this new trend I would suggest to try maybe their burgundy. I think that would look more trendy and great. I will be posting pictures so you can see the end results. Hope this review it's helpful and maybe can give you an input if you were thingking of purchasing it.
