[Review] Ciaté – Candy Cane House 2014

Hey everyone,

I hope you have a great Saturday. Sorry I am a lil’ late on publishing this post.

Today I want to review the 2014 Candy Cane House by Ciaté. The gift set includes 4 scented polishes that are rather effect glitter top coats then simple base colors. The packaging is super cute and shows, as the name says, a Candy Cane House.

The details are super adorable, there are graphics on the side of the packaging to symbolize the polishes and scents.

When you open the gift set you see the four polishes placed detailed windows of candy canes.

After taking off the polishes you see that there is a background sheet with the same design , I found this to be a really cute detail.

The polishes are mini’s so they contain 5 ml of product. From left to right you see PP227 – candy crazePP229 – tangled tinselPP230 – snow fall and PP228 – ginger snap.

I must say I never seen polishes quite like that. The mix of the different glitters and colors is very pretty. My favorite might be tangled tinsel and candy craze. To really show the effects of the polishes I applied them on top of a simple black polish, in this case 39 Black to the Routes from Catrice.

[sponsored] ANNY – 456 blush champagne

Greeting lovelies,

again I have an additional post for you besides the current Ciaté Month.

Last week I received yet another nail mail from ANNY Germany. They sent me informations on the new “just married” collection and the super pretty glittter effect top coat no. 456 blush champagne.

Already when I saw the promotional pictures I was stunned by this pretty baby. It reminded me a bit of Catrice’s Crushed Crystals polish no. 04 Oyster & Champagne, but ANNY’s polish is more duo-chrome in the base color. It is also a bit more golden rose colored, while the Catrice polishe is more of a silver rose base color. The pink particles in the ANNY polish are also more bright then in the Catrice polish. Do I prefere one over the other? No, because they are both gorgeous.

This is indeed the perfect glitter polish for a wedding manicure, which is why I went for a nice french manicure with slight shimer as a base. I applied one coat of Sally Hansen’s Miracle Growth 155 Misty Rose, added Ciaté’s PP133 amazing gracie on at the tip of the nail and topped it with ANNY’s blush champagne.

I really love this sparkly stunning polish. It is easy to apply and dries pretty quickly. In the sunlight in can be pretty distracting though :P
