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: 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. :)

Ciate: Halo Nail Days

For the next day in the Ciate Mini Mani Month, we have Halo. It’s a sheer glittery nail polish that is definitely meant to be worn over another nail polish.

To me, it’s one of those that you have that you think about using, but never actually use. In these pictures I have about 4 – 5 layers of this nail polish on so that you could see the effect and its sheerness.

Ciate: Dangerous Affair Nail Day

Day 2 of my Ciate mini mani month. Well… day 2 is a little off as I don’t have the time to paint my nails every single day, but I’m still going to go in order.

So.. “day 2” is Dangerous Affair. It’s a gorgeous red shade with a pink undertone that is really only noticeable in certain lighting.

Please forgive the horrible painting job. I was exhausted trying to paint and I typically let my shower in the morning remove the excess ;)

Cíate: Cupcake Queen Nail Day

I broke into my Cíate mini mani month box and am currently testing out the first bottle. While the bottle is quite small.. very small.. I love the color! It’s called Cupcake Queen and it’s a pink with a purple under tint. Currently I’ve been wearing it for 3 days and it’s barely chipped and considering I type on a computer all day long, typically my nails see some damage by this point. I’m very excited for the next 23 bottles :)

(Don’t mind the purple dot either, I saw that I missed a spot and decided to fill it in at work with a purple sharpie.. don’t ask)

I included this so you can see the actual bottle size and that the color in the bottle is very true to the color it ends up on your nails.

Have you tried Cíate yet?

I’m Back and I Spend Way Too Much at Sephora

Wow… Have I been MIA?

Yes, yes I have! For good reason though, I work full-time crazy round-the-clock hours it seems like. Then when I get home, want to do absolutely nothing but sleep or sit on my couch and not even turn on my computer.

Please forgive my absence. I can’t promise that I’ll be back regularly, but I will be back every once in a while with something fun. I might change this blog up a bit, just so it fits better with my schedule. If I see something interesting I’ll post it, it may be random things that aren’t necessarily beauty or fashion, but things I enjoy. You’ll see when it happens. :) I miss this damn blog and all that comes with it: checking comments, keeping up with new trends ( I feel so out of the loop). I’ve gotten amazing at Dreamweaver and HTML/CSS since that’s what my job entails, but I do miss fashion. I haven’t read a damn fashion magazine since September.. no lie.

Anyways, so to start things off… I had a lovely trip to Sephora yesterday and took advantage of their VIB weekend special of 20% entire purchase and bought WAYYYY too much.

First is Ciate’s Mini Mani Month nail polish set for $58
