Ciaté Launches NEW Nail Art Innovation - Cuticle Tattoos

Move over nail rings, there's a new, innovative nail decor taking your place. Brought to you by Ciaté, the leading innovators in nail care, nail colors and nail artistry, this newest nail care accessory - Cuticle Tattoos - is sure to be a huge hit with beauty lovers.

Cuticle Tattoos made a brief appearance last year but it seems the masses were not quite ready, but I believe with the Ciaté option, it's going to soar. Decorate your cuticles with Ciaté's signature pretty bow, diamonds, flowers and abstract shapes, a great way to add more flair to and/or extend your manicure. These cool finger decorations really embellish your manicure. Try the same art on all fingers or go wild and give each nail it's own decoration. I've always been a fan of Henna tattoos and have gotten a few applications with concentration on my fingers so I'm really excited that this is coming back and can't wait to rock Ciaté's Cuticle Tattoos.

Beyonce's dress wasn't the only dramatic thing she wore at the Grammy Awards. For her Grammy manicure, Celebrity Manicurist, Lisa Logan, gravitated to shades of purple and red to create a daring manicure. Starting with a base of purple, Lisa then layered red glitter to create a deep, sexy, one of a kind shade. "The luster of the red top coat complimented her gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz rings and matching red lip.”

“We cleansed and prepped her nails with the FORMULA X THE SYSTEM to ensure long-lasting wear."

 We then painted her nails with one coat of FORMULA X New Classics in Pedal To The Metal, a purple metallic pearl, and added one coat of FORMULA X Lusters in Atom + Eve, a ruby red glitter.

"We sealed the look with FORMULA X TOP COAT for added shine and longevity for her performance and rest of the evening.”

Deck Your Nails w/ SinfulColors Holiday Tinsel N' Ice Collection

It's been said that the holiday season is the time to shine but why limit your shine to then? There are plenty of times to rock a little black dress so why not enhance your LBD with nails that gleam and stand out. SinfulColors has just the nail polishes that put your nails in the spotlight for the New Year and beyond.

These Tinsel shades offer a festive flourish that's worth celebrating. Whether you go for an all-white snowfall effect, a festive burst of rainbow celebrations, or modern black and white, these shades, infused with glitter, gives nails a just-tinseled touch. Choose from six shimmery shades for all-out shine:

  • Silver Rainbows: Slivers of silver 
  • Spiked Ice: Black dazzle 
  • Pink Icicles: Confetti concoction 
  • Cold As Ice: Winter white 
  • Tinsel Town: Blue sparkle 
  • Gold Tinsel: The gift of gold

The entire collection is stunning but I was especially excited to try the Cold As Ice (pictured below), which can be worn alone beautifully and of course over any color. I used the matte top coat from KO Cosmetics in the second photo.

Unlike the Cold As Ice, I'm not a fan of wearing the Spiked Ice (shown below) on its own but of course it wasn't made for that. This black is however especially wonderful over pastel and muted colors.

I do admit wanted to see what these two tinsel colors would look like layered over each other and I must say, I do like the result. It's basically a black and white version of Silver Rainbows.

The SinfulColors Holiday Tinsel N' Ice Collection retails for $1.99 exclusively at Walgreens.
