What it is:
A manicure kit for creating a raw foil finish with a mirror-like shine that goes beyond a regular metallic polish for an edgy runway look.

What it does:
This easy-to-apply longwearing manicure allows you to layer creamy nail color with metallic sheen and try out different techniques such as color blocking and color clashing. Ciaté’s Creative Director Charlotte Knight was inspired by gleaming metallic accessories, models wrapped head-to-toe in luxe foil shades at London Fashion Week, and unique-fashion street-styling to create this inspirational nail kit. With a Colourfoil Canvas included, you can practice your modus operandi and create and keep your favorite designs.

This set contains:
– 0.17 oz Foil Fix Glue
– 0.46 oz Paint Pot in Kiss Chase (Carnival Couture), Pepperminty (Kaleidoscope Klash), Cream Soda (Wonderland)
– 30 Colourfoil Sheets in Blaze, Babe, Bounce, Beaut, Bloom, Brill (Carnival Couture); Stomp, Splash, Shout, Snog, Sing, Smash (Kaleidoscope Klash); Flash, Fizz, Feisty, Fling, Flirt, Frost (Wonderland)

What else you need to know:
Each Colourfoil kit was designed by Charlotte Knight with each foil lineup offering a unique pallet, from holograph to rainbow-mirrored metals.

Overall I thought this manicure was a lot of fun to execute.  It didn’t take me longer than any other nail art manicure would so it was not frustrated in that sense.  The instructions that came with this kit were clear and accurate.  I enjoyed the contrast of color from polish to foil choices.  From the first application on the first nail I was excited.  The only flaw with the system that I found was it suggested a clear top coat and when I applied a top coat over the pink foil it bled a bit.  So I did not end up using a top coat on the rest of the nails.  It looked kind of like a rave on my finger tips which isn’t typically workplace appropriate.  However for special events or matching the colors to particular outfits would be fun for a night out on the town.  I loved the packaging and think that at $19 it was appropriately priced.  It would make a fun gift for a girl friend or niece.
