Continuing with the nail theme today…

My first Ciate!

I (like many others) am in love with the packaging…

Look at that gorgeous little bow, such a simple but instantly recognisable addition.  Whoever came up with that idea at Ciate deserves to be on far more money than everyone else.

However, one of my bows on another bottle has come undone and I CAN’T DO IT UP AGAIN!  This shouldn’t frustrate me.  At the age of 28, wife of 1, mother to 1 and regular tax filer I should be able to rise above this… BUT I CAN’T!

Someone with more dexterity than me come round my house and do my bow up for me please, it’s making the bottle look sad and ugly.

Anyway… look at this shade, a lovely metallic purple-blue combination – stunning!

Application was ok… not the best as it’s quite a thick formula and dries very quickly (both a blessing and a curse – are all Ciate’s like that?)

Once applied though (2 coats) – this stuff just lasts and lasts… I’m on day 5 now with minimal tip wear.  Very good!

Do you have any favourite Ciate shades?

    God.. that is gorgeous. I must have it when my middle nail has grown back ha. Im not painting them at the mo, as that one broke and well my hand just looks deformed and it looks even worse when painted. :sadface:

    Wow minimal wear and no top coat? Impressed! Are they expensive? Might have to try them 🙂 Lush colour btw 🙂 xx

  3. Cassie says:

    I’ve never heard of this brand before. I’ll have to check them out because this color looks fabulous!

    Gorgeous shade!

    They’re all very thick and you need to apply them really fast. On the plus side, they dry super fast and wear like iron. I have Shaken Not Stirred on my toes right now – a great blue-toned hot pink.

    We reviewed a few of them earlier this year if you want to take a look st some others.

  5. @Jo – It’s pretty huh? Hope your nails are all better now! LOL

  6. @Kim – They are expensive 🙁 I nabbed this off Cosmetic-candy’s blog sale.

  7. @Cassie – The bottles are too cute huh?

  8. @Helen – I was going to buy a thinner for them, but I’ve never used one before.. all sounds a bit daunting! Hopefully with practise I’ll be able to pick up the pace!

  10. […] have no complaints at all.  Definitely one of my preferred Ciate shades, you should also check out Starlet and Velvet Tuxedo if you want some other lovely Ciate […]
