editor-spotlight_thumb3Tween girls will be freaking out over this fun nail kit that brings a trend from their rooms and accessories to their beauty routine. I found this product while sifting through the new products on Sephora’s website for any great and giftable gems. They never cease to surprise me with the great kits and collections that are perfect for women of all ages (including tweens). I’ve always been a big fan of Ciate’s nail art kits starting with the velvet and caviar kits of this past holiday season, so I was more than excited to find this one that lets the younger ladies in on the fun! I feel a summer sleepover activity coming out of this…

The Gift: Ciate Chalkboard Manicure


What makes it a good gift?

At first glance, the packaging stood out in the crowd because it is fun and youthful. Then, the product itself sunk in. Chalkboard paint is huge in home and DIY and I love that this takes that trend and gives it a super unique beauty spin!

Nail art continues to be all the rage in beauty trends, but Ciate has upped the ante with this cool and unique chalkboard manicure kit. The nail polish replicates the chalk board paint that has been so trendy in bedrooms, kitchens and classrooms for the past year or so. Unlike home chalkboard paint, this kit comes with white and black chalkboard nail polish so you can decide which type of contrast you want. The colorful paint pens allow for unlimited designs because she can draw, wipe it off and repeat. Girls will have so much fun doing, and re-doing each other’s nail art with this kit.

Who is it a gift for?

Tween, teen and young gals who love getting creative with nail art!
