Always first with the next big thing in nail art, Ciate have worked their magic again to launch the Chalkboard Nail Kit. ASOS came in to see us today with their pick of the most exciting beauty launches for the new season. Clearly ours was this, since we held up proceedings to play with the kit before anyone else has (we know this because you have to saturate the tip of the liquid chalk pens on first use, and this takes some perseverance and extra delay). Hey ho, deadlines would have to wait; this kit is beyond fun. We were already quite enamoured with the flat matte effect base, followed by any manner of combos of the 4 chalk pens on top (you can wash off any mistakes with a wet cotton bud), before sealing with a matte topcoat.
To own one is to waste away a great many minutes having the kind of fun you last experienced at school. That alone is well worth the £18 the whole kit will cost.
We predict very big things for this set, out on 23rd April in Selfridges, and online at ASOS a little later, and can already sniff a few contenders nipping at their heals to bring out yet another nail innovation. We'll keep you posted.
