Ciate: Talent Scout NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 13 - 2012

I prefer my wintery brights over summery brights.  My skintone loves raspberry, purples and red shades and I have to feel a little more ‘brave’ to wear skintone repel-ing orange, green and turquoise shades on my fingers.  This is one of the main reasons for my love of Ciate’s Talent Scout.  It’s a bold purple that reminds me of juicy damsons!

A little unforgiving to ridged nails, though probably nothing a basecoat wouldn’t have prevented – Talent Scout is a two-coater with a creme finish.  Drying time was also good.

Ciate Talent Scout is available to purchase online at PowderRooms, priced at £9.00

    Very nice! I’m always drawn to purple nail polish and as a result, about 50% of my collection is purple-based. Still, one more wouldn’t hurt! :)

  9. I love Ciate’s polishes and that is such a gorgeous shade :)
