Petal perfection

In the interest of defying this miserable weather I am posting all things summery on my blog this week – witness Sunday’s feature about the gorgeously bright Peter Pilotto for Target collection. Today’s piece is a feast of flowery loveliness, featuring the latest manicure offering from innovative nail polish experts Ciaté.

Ciaté Flower Manicure in Bada Bloom, £18

Available exclusively from Selfridges & Sephora this month, the adorable Flower Manicure comes in two options – the bold Strike-a-Posy in pink or the pastel Bada Bloom in blue (such great names!). Each pack comes with a 5ml polish and top coat, along with a nail file, tweezers and a selection of natural dried pressed flowers to add to your nails.  Yes that’s real flowers, so there’s no need to pick up a paintbrush and channel your inner Van Gogh, although you may need a steady hand and some skills with a pair of tweezers. So be inspired by this Spring’s bold floral trend and adorn your nails with a plethora of petals.  And just in time for a weeks practice before London Fashion Week. Fabulous!
