Ciaté Collection

Hello lovelies,

we are at the last day of my 2015 Ciaté Month.

I want it to end with a bang, which is why I am going to show you my whole Ciaté Collection. Besides two polishes I bought all of these products myself.

This is probably the product I wanted the most right after I saw it on the PR information. I mean come on, for a nail polish junkie like me this set is heaven. Who doesn’t want to mix their own polishes?

PP107 – Pocket Money

This is the one of the polishes I did not by myself. I received this in a small appreciation package sent to me by Ciaté Germany, along with a mini glass nail file and a Ciaté key holder.

PP160 – She’s electric

This is the 2nd polish I did not by myself. I got this one as a present from my friend Heidi (Heidi’s polish).

Bought this polish along with a few other Ciaté polishes online.

Nail Care

With time I also collected and tried some of their nail care products and base / top coats.

Be careful not to keep the matte top coat for too long or it might get ruined. It happened to mine after about 1 and a half years.

IMG_2514b

 

Ciaté – Speed Coat (fast dry top coat)

IMG_2501b

IMG_2506b

This is probably the best fast drying top coat I have tried. It dries the nail polish to a good amount within 30 – 60 seconds I would say. Would definitely recommend it to any of you and will keep buying it myself.

IMG_2507b

comparison of the new (left) and old (right) product

 

Ciaté – love me oil (almond cuticle oil)

IMG_2502b

IMG_2510b

I simply love this cuticle oil. I am a big fan of almond products and I feel this oil is moisturizing and nurishing. It is quickly applied and the cuticles soak it in pretty fast.
I also love the cuticle butter from Burt’s Bees, but I don’t use it too much because I don’t like wasting the product by having to apply it with my finger.

 

Do you own any other Ciaté polishes or products in general, which I should try?

[Review] Ciaté Nail Lab

Good evening everyone,

today’s post is loaded with pictures so you might want to grab a tea, lean back and relax.

This post is about Ciaté’s famous Nail Lab!
It is currently out of stock in the UK and USA, but you might be able to get it again some time later this year or you should check the internet for more opportunities to get this. I got mine at my local TKmaxx, which was a huge surprise for me. It was only 20,- € so I went to the cashier, shaking and asking if they made a mistake, but they told me that it’s all good and that this is the correct price. I couldn’t believe it!

Ciate_NailLab

Including:

  • 6 x mini polishes (Mistress, Pillow Fight, Rain Coat, Ferris Wheel, Power Dressing & Amazing Gracie)
  • 4 empty mini paint pot bottles
  • 6 x suspension top coats
  • 12 x 5g Glitters
  • 7 x professional nail tools (1 scooper, 2 mini test tubes, 1 petri dish, 1 funnel, 1 mini nail file, 1 roll of customisable labels)

This is probably the product I wanted the most right after I saw it on the PR information. I mean come on, for a nail polish junkie like me this set is heaven. Who doesn’t want to mix their own polishes?

The following pictures are all taken by me

IMG_2376b

The Nail Lab comes in a solid hard paper drawer with three drawers and another one at the top to open.

IMG_2377b

The top presents kind of a mixing stationary for you to create your own nail polish creations, as well as two cases with cards. One set of cards for recipes and another set for “get the look” help.

IMG_2383b

Get the Look

IMG_2148b

IMG_2149b

On the sides of the Nail Lab you see all the different colors.

IMG_2386b

IMG_2385b

That’s how the open Nail Lab looks like.

IMG_2379b

IMG_2378b

Besides the card set’s and the mixing stationary the top also contains 6 mini polishes for you to start mixing immediately.

IMG_2382b

IMG_2381b

IMG_2384b

The first drawer contains the empty Ciaté bottles as well as the ones with the clear polish.

IMG_2144b

IMG_2143b

The second one contains all the glitters …

IMG_2140b

IMG_2142b

… and the last contains all the nail tools you need.

IMG_2138b

IMG_2139b

 

Of course I could not wait to try it so I started created my first polish with the Nail Lab.

What I used?

  • equal parts of clear polishsnow virgin and amazing gracie
  • 3 drops of polish thinner

for the glitter

  • 1 scoop – white glitter from Ciaté
  • 1 1/2 scoops – gold glitter from Ciaté
  • 1 1/2 scoops – rose glitter from Ciaté
  • 1 1/2 scoops – gold glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 1 1/2 scoops – gold bar glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 1 scoop loose pigments from Essence 10 fairy dust

IMG_3154b

IMG_3148b

First I mixed the glitters I wanted to use. Carfully I added scoop after scoop, closing and shaking the glitters up real good.

IMG_3143b

here is the result

IMG_3145b

here is how my polish turned out, I call it Unicorn Dust

IMG_3146b

IMG_3147b

since the polish turned out to be a bit sheer I added two coats of amazing gracie as a base color before adding my polish.

IMG_3168b

I love the result. The glitter spread very evenly and smooth. Thanks to the drops of polish thinner the polish did not turn out to be to creamy.

IMG_3155b

IMG_3158b

How do you like it?

 

After I was done with this one I wanted to try more, so I took out the polishes I did not use too often to create more unique polishes.

The next polish should be purple.

What did I use?

  • clear polish
  • Artdeco 146
  • equal amounts of white polish, UMA’s spectacular and #flashmob’s purple

for the glitter

  • 1 scoop – light purple glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 2 scoops – dark purple glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 1 scoop – silver glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 2 scoops – white / see through sequins from Michael’s Arts and Craft

IMG_3267b

IMG_3432b

here is the result or purple night sky

IMG_3268b

IMG_3269b

one coat

IMG_3270b

two coats

IMG_3271b

I like the result even though I wish it would be more opaque. I will definitely try it over a black base though. Maybe it turns out nicer that way.

How do you feel about this polish?

 

Next I wanted to create a red glitter polish

What I used?

  • Maybelline Colorshow – RED

for the glitter

  • 1 1/2 scoops – Essence 04 black glitter
  • 1 scoop – holo black glitter from Ciaté
  • 1 scoop – red glitter from Ciaté
  • 1 scoop – red glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 3 scoops – red sequins from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 2 scoops – black sequins from Michael’s Arts and Craft

IMG_3274b

here is the result of diamond wine

IMG_3272b

IMG_3273b

one coat

IMG_3275b

I might add this over a coat of normal red polish to make it more opaque, but I love the result with the black in it.

What do you think?

 

Last but not least I created a green polish.

What I used?

  • equal amounts of Cosmetica Fanatica 53-189.1, light green japanese polish and NYC 150 platinum carat
  • a drop of dark green polish from basic [b]

for the glitter

  • 2 scoops – light green glitter from #flashmob
  • 2 scoops – light green glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 2 scoops – dark green glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 2 scoops – dark green bar glitter from Michael’s Arts and Craft
  • 3 scoops – light green sequins from Michael’s Arts and Craft

IMG_3433b

here is the result of disco grass

IMG_3277b

IMG_3278b

IMG_3279b

I feel okay but not too happy about this polish.

Your opinion?

 

In general I love the idea of creating new polishes. One day I would LOVE to create my own collection. I will for sure try out more combinations.

For me the Nail Lab was a total steal. The price was incredible for all the things you get in here, even though I feel the original price is a biiiii~t too much haha

[Review] Ciaté – She’s electric, Looking Glass, Jewelry Box

Good evening everyone,

tonight I want to review 3 more Ciaté polishes I bought during the past few months. One of them I got from my dear friend Heidi (Heidi’s Polish). She was so nice to give me She’s electric as a present along with some other polishes.

Anyway, today’s polishes are :

  • She’s electric
  • Looking Glass
  • Jewelry Box

 

She’s Eclectic

She's electric

Is it blue, is it purple? This clever duo-tone polish is unique and very pretty. It takes 2 to 3 coats but when it’s opaque it’s a superstar in direct sunlight.

Available on the Ciaté UK Webiste for the regular price of £9.00.

IMG_2731b

Especially when popping it up with colorful studs this polish shows it’s true quality.

Looking Glass

A stunning holographic silver polish that gives off a rainbow pop! Good coverage and a smooth surface after the polish dried, are the perfect requirements for stamping or any other nail art.

Available on the Ciaté UK Webiste for the regular price of £9.00.

Bold and beautiful, this glittery black is the perfect accessory for any girls night on the town. The polish is very sheer at the beginning so you might need 3 coats to get an opaque finish. The different colored and holographic glitter. With one coat it even looks like small hairs of fur or feather.

Available on the Ciaté USA Website for $7.50 instead of $15.00.
