NOTD – Ciate Paint Pots Plastic Fantastic

So far, all the Ciates I’ve tried are consistent in formulation.  They’re thick but not quite gloopy and they dry like lightning.  If I knew how to thin nail polish down… I probably would with these.

If you’re quick enough, application is great!  It dries to a smooth glossy finish and lasts like the Duracell Bunny.

Plastic Fantastic is a great shade… it’s not mind-achingly beautiful, but it’s a solid mauvey pink which is sensible enough to be completely work safe.

Recommended.

    You can buy Seche Vite Restore which thins down polish (and their top coat that gets mega thick!). I’ve not tried any Ciate polish yet, but it’s on to to-buy list, along with a zillion other polish brands 😉

    You can always get a nail polish thinner… I’ve heard about them but I haven’t used them yet. Although, this color is really pretty 😀

  3. @Lisa – Thank You, I knew it was Seche Nails that did one, but I couldnt’ remember what it was called! xxxx

  4. @Ndoodles – I wonder if they’re easy to use, or if you can screw it up and ruin your polish? x

    i’ve heard that adding the tinest amount of nail polish remover to your nail varnish, then shaking the bottle well thins the formula. just a tip!
