Ciate – Fun Fair NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 11 - 2011

I always protest that I don’t like pastels… and on paper, I don’t.  They’re insipid and make my hands look pudgy and blotchy.  I know that my fingers look far more slender with darker tips… but then I look down at my nails and get that happy feeling that only light and airy colours can bring.

Ciate Fun Fair is a cool toned cross between pink and lilac… the thing that strikes me most about it though is that it doesn’t look too stark.  Anything that leans towards pale AND cool does tend to start looking a little chalky and obvious.  Fun Fair just about keeps it’s dignity intact!

The formula was fine, one of those polishes that really come good on a 2nd or 3rd coat.  Don’t expect to be happy with this on it’s first coat.  I find that to be true of a lot of Ciate polishes.

Wear was good too… it lasted a full 3 days before tip wear became noticeable enough to make me want to remove it.

Ciate Fun Fair is priced at £9 and available to buy online from The Powder Rooms.

    I love that color, it’s soo pretty and girly, but not too young girl-ish.

    Oh my days that is beautiful! xxx

    I love this on you, I do envy your very fab nails too btw – a post on what you do to keep them looking that great would be good. Unless of course they are god given and then I don’t want to know as that’s not fair!

    • honestly, they’re pretty darn shite at the moment under all that polish.

      They grow like weeds but since December have started to split and peel at the tips. I was thinking of putting a HELP! kinda shout out on the blog to get advice. xx

    What a lovely colour! I’m never too sure what looks good on my nails either, darks look like I’m a little girl playing dress up, and pales make me look a bit babyish. Just need to grow my nails (again) before I even think about buying this gorgeous polish, but it’s definitely one for my wishlist.

    Your nails look lovely in any colour hun, and you always have such lovely photos. I’m envious! x

  8. I really like these Ciate polish bottles, they’re super cute! I love looking at pastel pinks on other people, but it’s been a long time since I last wore one.

    Really liking the look of this….it’s just the right side of too pale…might be a spring winner….

    That’s a really sweet polish and it looks really good on you! I sadly don’t think I’ll be able to pull of that colour as it might be a bit too cool toned for me, but that doesn’t stop me from admiring the lovely colour on you 🙂

  11. I don’t like pastels either, they make me look so washed out :/ This one looks so pretty and cute on you though, I really like it 🙂 It makes your fingers look like candies 🙂
