Get Your Glow On! Plus a GIVEAWAY!!!

I've always been a HUGE fan of neon-hued nails. So when I got the Ciaté Corrupted Neon manicure set, I was obviously ridiculously excited to give it a go!

So I went with the pink kit, since--let's face it--pink nails are one of my fave accessories.

Each kit contains a bottle of polish, a bottle of glitter, and a black light top coat.

I really liked the way that the polish applied. It came out evenly and the color was gorgeous. After painting my nails, I went straight for the glitter. It needs to be applied before the polish dries. I knew this would be the trickiest and messiest part, so I set up a bunch of paper towels to do the deed. Basically, the glitter bottle contains loose glitter that is the same color as the polish. You just lightly sprinkle it onto the nail until you're satisfied. At this point, it's time to apply the black light top coat. Again, this applied like a dream! It was thick enough to hold the glitter onto my nails, but not so thick that it took forever to dry.

Here's the end result:

Pretty cute, right? And since different textures are all the rage for nail polish, this matte-ish, almost gritty, glittery look is perfect for Fall! 

Here's a look at what happens with a black light:

It was tough to get a good picture, but I think this shows the bold brightness fairly well.

After you master the look, you can apply the polishes in different, unique ways. The black light top coat works over the neon polish sans glitter, so I suggest trying the glitter on your ring finger as an accent nail. You can definitely be creative!

The sets come in four different colors: pink, yellow, orange, and blue. All of them are fabulous. Each kit retails for $25 at Sephora.

But now for the best part--Ciaté has teamed up with Sassy Fashionista for an amazing giveaway! I've got four kits (one in each color) to give away to four lucky readers!
