Here is one look you will not see  during tonight’s airing due to large controversy surrounding the Native American-style headdress.

As if these Angels didn’t give us enough Body Envy – wait until you see Adriana Lima! Just eight weeks after giving birth to her second child she was back on the runway and looking even more fabulous than ever.

Make sure you tune into CBS tonight at 10pm EST to catch all the Angels as well as musical guests Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.

Pre-show coverage starts at 9pm and can be viewed here.

Oh.. & who doesn’t want to try on a pair of wings??  🙂

Imagine being able to wake up everyday and having your fears erased.

Everyday should be lived  – Fearless.

As a self-proclaimed specialist when it comes to the at home manicure, I was intrigued when I came across the Ciaté  products at my local Sephora. They offered a few different options but I went with a smaller set since I was not  too familiar with the brand.

Ciaté CAVIAR Mini Bar $29.00

includes: – 4 x 1.7 oz Paint Pot Nail Polish
– 4 x Caviar Pearls
– Funnel

I started off with a Sally Hansen basecoat.

After the basecoat, I decided to try out a nail polish that I’ve had for a while but never got around to using. Sephora by OPI Nail Polish in Mermaid to Order.

I did double coats on all my nails except the ring finger since you need to pour the Caviar Pearls on right after the last coat is applied. I decided to use the Caviar Pearls in CandyShop – I felt like all the colors blended so well with Mermaid to Order.

The Ciaté set comes with a plastic tray so you can place it under your hand while pouring the Pearls on to your nail(s) to catch all the excess. It also comes with a funnel for easy clean up. You just place the funnel into the bottle and pour the unused pearls back in from the tray. After I poured the pearls on both desired nails, I pressed down on them to set them into place. I also used the same basecoat and went around the edges of the nail to try to hold them in place more. I do not recommend using a top coat over these pearls. It makes the pearls look super sloppy and basically ruins the look.

Overall I love the concept. The Caviar Pearls give a very unique “rich” look and makes the nails stand out. Do not purchase this product thinking your manicure will last a week or honestly, even 48 hours as the box states. Within an hour I had pearls coming off but it is not very noticeable. This is great for a special occasion or a night out but definitely not your everyday longwear manicure. I was a little worried that the removal of the pearls might be difficult but with a swipe of nail polish remover, they were gone with no mess or fuss. I also want to note that I am not a big fan of the actual nail polish the set came with. I felt for the price point that it lacked quality. I tested them out and they peeled pretty easily and needed about 3 coats for the color to pop and that is why I decided to use a different brand of nail polish for this look.  For $29.00 though I got my moneys worth and I do not regret the purchase. I am excited to try different styles of manicures with the Caviar Pearls.
