The Feather Manicure

Ciaté Feather Manicure Cover

When creating new nail polishes (remember the Sequined Manicure), U.K. brand Ciaté, helmed by Charlotte Knight, always surprises us. Imagine my excitement when I got the news about their upcoming launch this September: the FEATHER MANICURE.


Knight took inspiration from the runways when formulating this eye-catching trend, which involves gluing an actual feather on your tips.

Feather Manicure Ciaté

Here’s how it works: Apply two thin coats of the nail polish, followed by a layer of Speed Coat Pro, and lay the feather on your nail before it dries. Seal in the plume with a second top coat and clip any excess feather overhang. One final top coat layer, and you’re done!

The three different kits will be available in September 2013.
In the U.K. and US: Sephora – In Germany: Douglas (Snow Owl- What a hoot) and Karstadt – In Switzerland, Austria and other countries:

Chanel’s New Wardrobe for Your Skin


When I received the new Chanel skincare range, I have been without doubt all over the moon to try it. I can assure you that you will be blown away by this amazing trio!

According to the French Maison, our skin is programmed to know when it’s day and night, or even when it’s weekend time. Inspired by this fact, this new weekly wardrobe helps you to get radiance back, restore balance and to achieve a gorgeous glow. Within the first fifteen days, I have already felt a difference. This trio makes your skin look great and also your bathroom shelf – so worth the investment.

Chanel-Range_Le Jour La Nuit Le Weekend

FOR DAY Le Jour de Chanel contains jasmine to energize and salicylic acid to exfoliate and brighten. CHF 105.00
FOR NIGHT La Nuit de Chanel. Its frankincense extract soothes the skin while hyaluronic acid plumps. CHF 105.00
