Hello, my wonderful readers, I am sorry it has taken me so long to write up some of my reviews, but work has been manic and I have lots of positive news for a change!
Now, about this nail polish/varnish/enamel, whatever you want to call it!? I love it!
It arrived in my July GlossyBox, and I was pleased with the colour. The colours that were available were Skinny Jeans, Beach Melba, Kitten Heels, Big Yellow Taxi, Speed Dial, Mojito and Caberet. As always with GlossyBox, you can’t choose what they send you so I know that some subscribers weren’t very happy with a Shrek Green (Mojito) colour, but I was one of the luck ones and received a lovely bright orange colour which is Speed Dial.
These nail enamels sell at £9 for a 13.5ml bottle. Personally, I usually go for a cheaper range of nail colours from Barry M or Rimmel, but once I tried this product, my view changed!
When you apply this nail varnish, it doesn’t go on very thick, so for good coverage you will need to apply 2 coats, in addition to this I found that it felt quit gloopy coming out of the bottle, so care is needed for application. But it lasts!! I definitely found this product lasted a lot longer before chipping than most of my other nail polishes. I do have a couple of more luxurious polishes, but Ciate’s product outlasted Ruby&Millie and MAC’s.
Also, the handle on the brush is nice a long, which allows you to get a better grip and it sits nicely in your hand for a smoother application.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that loves a nice bright colour on their nails. Ciates products are also formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate and toluene free. Plus they have a very cute and ultra-feminine little bow on the bottle which makes them stand out.
