Ciate Caviar, Sequin and Velvet manicure - always on the forefront of 'nail technology', 2012 has definitely been a good year for Ciate. I've only tried the caviar manicure (which doesn't last long but it looks so cool) but I would love to try the other two. Nail art has boomed this year, and these nifty products have taken it 3D!
Magazine freebies - this has been the year where we've been buying multiple copies of magazines just for the freebies!! From Benefit to Nails Inc to Ciate to The Body Shop and more.
Selfridges Lucky Bag and Beauty Box - these both created a huge stir throughout Twitter! I wasn't quick enough for the beauty box but got a lucky bag and was so happy with the contents! Definitely foresee more shops doing this next year.
Brad's Chanel ad - I think this one is pretty unanimous - absolutely awful, and I cringe every time I hear it. The world turns, and we turn with it....piss off!!
Snakeskin manicure - This news came out in July, only from America of course! For the bargain price of £150 you could coat your nails with real snakeskin. I think we'll stick to nail art and wraps this side of the pond!!
Collagen sweets and drinks - 2012 seems to be the year that these have boomed onto the market and I just don't think they can work. You need collagen to go into your skin, not your blood stream after having been digested.
Let me know what have been your 2012 highlights and lowlights
