Ciate Nail Day: Round-up

It’s about time, but I’m finally finishing up the Ciate Mini Mani Month box. I decided to go ahead and wear five colors at once and then just take a picture of the last 7 bottles. I got ridiculously behind. With work, switching jobs, interviews, and life, painting my nails didn’t happen much.

Without further ado I give you the colors:

In order of left to right on nails: Headliner, Fade to Greige, Mojito, Big Yellow Taxi, Speed Dial

The yellow(big yellow taxi), green (mojito), and orange (speed dial) were by far the most difficult to apply thus far. They were very watery when I applied them. It took many, many coats to get a solid color formed.

And here are the remaining bottles: bottles2Bottles from left to right: Glass Slipper, Power Dressing, Candyshop (caviar pearls), Magic Carpet, Sundance (caviar pearls), Enchanted Rose, Cookies and Cream

I love the color names of this whole box. Ciate is definitely going to have my vote for favorite nail polish for a long time.

Which is your favorite: Ciate, Essie, OPI, another??

Ciate Nail Day: Twilight

Next up in the Ciate Mini Mani Month is Twilight!

This black nail polish has flecks of gold in it making it a great choice for outfits. It goes with everything yet has a bit of something extra to it. The gold flecks really come out in the sunlight, making it look more gold than black.

I will admit, this nail polish was more of a pain than any others I’ve used so far in this set. It dried quicker, probably because of the high density of gold, but this caused it to clump while painting so it was very difficult to get it even.

Please forgive my old lady looking hands, the cold and dry winter weather always makes my skin look like I’m well over 25 years!

Ciate: Mistress & Ladylike Luxe Days

It’s been a while since I painted my nails, so I thought I would try and get the next two of my Ciate Mini Mani Month in one. This is days 9 and 10 (yes, way, way behind) but I truly want to use them not just swatch them. Here is Mistress, a red color with an orange undertone. (It’s more red than shown in this image) With Ladylike Luxe as the gold shade. These colors were perfect together.

Ciate: Vintage Nail Day

Here is day 8 of Ciate’s Mini Mani Month. A gorgeous color called Vintage. I’ve been wearing a lot of gray this week so this bluish-gray has been a perfect color. I love it. And so far all these nail polishes have really held up well. This picture was taken today and I painted my nails on sunday so that gives you a great idea of how well this stuff does. :)

 I have skipped three colors, which is what this second image is. I’m going to try the caviar pearls at some point, I just don’t want to waste them without an occasion because I type on a computer all day and I’m worried they would just be falling off all over my desk. Kinda awkward at work! The other two: angel wings and cutie pie I just skipped because I wanted some color. :)
