Lets face it Ciate seem to be the crème de la crème of nail art. First there was the release of Caviar nails, and now there is the anticipated release of the velvet manicure . In all honesty no matter how much I may love the designs I find the prices extortionate for nail art that will more than likely be a fad. So when I saw pictures on Instagram of MUA's version of the velvet manicure aptly named the "fur-effect nails" , I knew I needed to take a trip to Superdrug.
The fur effect collection contains five different shades of fluffy delights. Fluffy Bobbin (deep blue), Fluff and Cuddles (a deep pink/mauve shade), Fuzzy Fluff (bright pink), Boo Boo Fluff (bright light blue), Fluffy Puff (baby Pink). With the £2 price tag I had to stop myself from purchasing them all, however I sensibly opted for two, Fluff and Cuddles (post to come) and Fluffy Puff.
A gorgeous baby pink, fluffy puff is perfect for jazzing up a basic manicure, and best of all its easy enough for even the biggest novice (myself included).
To create the above look all you need to do is;
- Prep nails with your choice of polish.
I opted for Ciate's Cutie Pie, a fellow baby pink and the perfect companion to fluffy puff.
- Then apply a second coat
- Whilst wet press your nail down into the fluffy pot, until covered (I only applied fluffy puff to ring finger)
- Finally brush excess off, Its as easy as that
MUA's fur-effect nails, is a rather effective and easy form of nail art. The only gripe I have is that the fur gets dirty rather quickly.
Have you tried fur-effect nails??
