Getting Nails Holiday-Ready With Ciate

We love glamorous nails for making us look and feel polished from top-to-toe, so getting our mitts beach-ready is one of our favourite pre-holiday treats.

For many years, I would treat myself to a Shellac mani and pedi before jetting off for sunnier climes. But this year, I'm preening myself with these fab Ciate nail polishes, available online or in Selfridges beauty halls.

They come in a huge rainbow of colours, meaning you can pick and choose your holiday look. Since we are holidaying in Cornwall this year (we leave tomorrow - WAHOO), I'm opting for laid-back elegance and plumping for this grey polish to perk up my tootsies. 

If you're feeling ultra brave, Ciate also has a fantastic range of manicures (some of them completely exclusive to Selfridges), so you can make your nails a real talking point.

Which one will you go for?

Teresa and I are both fans of sleek and chic grey nails. Elegant yet quirky and fashionable all at once, grey is our favourite way to do 'nude'. This Ciate Paint Pot in Cookies and Cream is the perfect shade for pared-back nails.

Stay one step ahead of the A/W13 fashions by snapping up this baby blue polish. Shades of blue were all over the catwalks for this Autumn, so we adore this Ciate varnish in Ferris Wheel. 

 Get traffic-stopping nails with Ciate's Big Yellow Taxi Paint Pot - this is a real in-your-face polish, great for city breaks!
Go super pretty and girly with candy-coated nails. We love how this Tutti Frutti Caviar manicure set is reminiscent of pick and mix sweets!

If you're jetting off with the other beautiful people to the party capital of Ibiza, then snap up one of these Corrupted Neon Manicure Kits, exclusive to Selfridges. Coming in a rainbow of neon shades (although we love the flamingo pink Shout Out set), these are the girly way to do 'rave' - the topcoat means that once the sun sets, your nails will get glowing beneath UV lights.

And if you really want your mitts to do the talking, then try out one of Ciate's glamorous nail manicure sets. Dare to dazzle with Denim nails, available exclusively at Selfridges, or stand out from the crowd chalkboard nails - you can make your nails a real talking point!
