Ciate Chalkboard Manicure

I've seen this Ciate Chalkboard Manicure set quite a few times but originally thought it wasn't really my style. However, lately I've been enjoying messing around with designs on my nails a little more, so figured I'd give it a go and see if it lived up to the hype. 

The ciate chalkboard manicure set comes complete with a chalkboard paint pot, mattnificent matte topcoat and three coloured design pens. 

To begin, you apply two coats of the ciate chalkboard paint pot polish. Once it's completely dry you take your coloured chalk pens and shake them before applying your chosen design. Once your design is ready, allow it to dry before popping on your mattifying top coat. If you make any mistakes at all with the coloured pens, you can simply rub it off with some water within 30 seconds of applying. 

I actually really liked this set. It took me a little time to get used to using the design pens, so I did have to wipe it off and start again a couple of times. That's nothing to do with the actual product though, more to do with my not so steady hands!

I'll redo the polish this week and then share some pictures of my chalk board masterpiece. They are looking a little worse for wear after my pumpkin carving session today. 

Have you tried any of the Ciate manicure sets? If so, what are your favourites?
