Ciate Nail Varnish Review, beautiful paint pots reviewed.


ciate nail varnishes

Hello everyone, really excited to be doing a beautiful review as there's nothing I love more than reviewing products so as you've probably guessed, I was an extremely excited girl when these BEAUTIFUL 'paint pots' landed in my post box. First, I just wanted to share some exciting news with you, I have been chosen to co-host a new radio show every Tuesday from 10am-1pm on RadioFrequency (wow, who wants to listen to me for that long!?) and my first show was last week, if you missed it you can listen to it back here - I'd just like to thank everyone so much who listened to my first show, but i'd also like to thank those who are still continuing to listen to me rant on the radio!

Now, back to the main thing, nail varnish! eeee! look how pretty they are, wouldn't these make the most adorable stocking fillers? (yes I am excited for Christmas, already...) I think these are the most aesthetically pleasing nail varnishes that I have ever set my eyes on. Now, I think that nail varnishes are extremely difficult to discuss, as you never really know what to go for, it's not like you can sample them like you can with other beauty products. Basically, you only know what nail varnish to go for by word of mouth, or trial and error, because you can't exactly try them in the shop can you - but this can be time consuming and expensive. Maybe we should invent something that means you get to try them out aha, I think that would be very helpful. My lovely brother always buys me Nails Inc nail varnishes from Harvey Nichols, and I love them so much but just because they're 'Nails Inc'. I hate to say it but the actual nail varnish from Nails Inc is quite weak meaning you have to put lots of layers on to see any intensity or colour. This is where I prefer Ciate, just wow. I was actually shocked when I put one brush stroke on, and my nail was bright. Imagine how good the colour looked after 2 coats? And even after 3, it doesn't even go gloopy, which you'd expect after putting too many layers on, well this just doesn't. The solution is just perfectly thick and the colours that I trialled are just beautiful, I don't think anyone can doubt that.

ciate nail varnishes strawberry milkshake
My favourite colour has to be the beautiful baby pink. Ignore how badly I painted my nails,tragic I know. They're not exactly neat but I just did this quickly to show you the colour. Most baby pinks tend to be quite dull once they come out of the pot, but this colour 'strawberry milkshake' got soo many compliments, it's just so scrumptious, who ever knew that a colour could be delicious? Well this one really is. This is just after one layer. It's 100% my fave colour out of them all. You can also see the red, the colour is 'pom pom' and it is perfectly shiny, and theeeee brightest red. I hate nail varnishes that are supposed to be red but turn out to be really dull. This nail varnish differs from the rest as it is actually bright (hooray!) and it doesn't lose it's shine. These varnishes actually dry really quick too, which is another wow factor about Ciate.
Above you can see the colbalt blue and the dark green varnishes. I love the names of the products, the blue is called 'skinny jeans' and this photograph really does the colour no justice whatsoever, as my nail does look just plain blue on the photo. Trust me though, this is no ordinary blue, it's a gorgeous colbalt colour, which is perfectly shiny yet  gorgeously bright at the same time. I couldn't believe how bright it was when I first put it on my toe nails. Everyone who has seen my Ciate nail varnishes absolutely loves the green though, or better known as the 'tweed and tails' colour. Once again, this photo does it no justice.  What matters though is, Ciate paint pots, are so beautiful that I could eat them up, they look beautiful, they would make gorgeous gifts, but mainly, they perform extremely well. They last long and the colours are perfectly intense. I love the bows on the pots too, they're just the perfect finishing touch for a glamorous product. They're £9.00 each which is very good considering how much you get in the pot, they are very big especially for how little you have to use to cover your nail and how long nail varnishes in general last - I never really run out of my nail varnishes. This is cheaper than Nails Inc, yet these products are much better.
ciate caviar manicure
I am dying to try the Caviar manicure by Ciate (above), if you haven't heard of this, they actually do a three dimensional nail kit, where you actually apply caviar beads to the nail. They look incredible and are available to buy for £18.00 , I am going to have to get my hands on the black beads AND the white pearls. They're just beautiful, I promise to grab these soon and let you know how easy they are to apply. Knowing Ciate, they'll be amazing though,i've watched videos and they look so simple to do and soo cool.

Have you used Ciate? more importantly, have you used the caviar nail kit?!
