Ciate Chalkboard Nails, hit or miss?

Something that has been floating around the bloggersphere a lot recently is Ciate's chalboard nail set. The set features a matte, black Ciaté Paint Pot and liquid Chalk Pens. The idea is that you put the matte paint pot on and then when it's dried you draw on them with the liquid chalk pens.


I really liked the idea of chalkboard nails. I am most definitely not an artist so found it particularly hard using the pens to draw a design or a pattern. Every time i tried a design it just looked tacky and messy. For me, this product was a total waste of money. Unless you are extremely talented at nail art I wouldn't recommend this. Hell, even if you're amazing at nail art i'm not sure you can work with this... If you do manage to get it to work for you feel free to tweet me at @Talisa_Lauren_T with a photo- i'd love to see your design!

It retails for £25, buy (here).

What are your thoughts on Chalkboard nails? Hit or miss?

  2. This seems like a good idea but I don't think my hand would be steady enough to do this. And its quite expensive.

  4. This is kinda cool! But how long does the chalk stay on?
    I agree with you! The idea is quite innovative, but I probably wouldn't be the best artist out there! xx

  5. It looks cool, but I don't think I would ever buy it. I could get the same effect by just using a matte top coat!

  25. I think the concept of this is good - but it's overpriced! I think I'd prefer normal nail art pens to this - they're so much cheaper & basically do the same thing. Great post & really cute blog - love the layout! :)
