Ciaté Collection

Hello lovelies,

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?

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.

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.

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.

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 – Corrupted Neon Glitters

Hello lovelies,

only a few days left until this years Ciaté Month is over. I would love to read what you think and if you liked it. Please let me know in the comments below or on my other Social Media Sites.

Today I would like to review Ciaté’s Corrupted Neons Kits.

ciate-2

Usually the loose neon glitters I am going to review today are only available in the corrupted neons kits. They come in four different colors and include a mini polish, a full sized bottle of loose glitter and a mini bottle of black light top coat.

Let’s take a look at the available kits (top to bottom)

  • Corrupted Neon Manicure Megaphone
  • Corrupted Neon Manicure Club Tropicana
  • Corrupted Neon Manicure Shout out
  • Corrupted Neon Manicure Foam Party

20130830-105527

I got mine seperately at TKmaxx though. I bought the following three:

  • 10g – Megaphone Neon Glitter
  • 10g – Club Tropicana Neon Glitter
  • 10g – Foam Party Neon Glitter

IMG_3503b

IMG_3504b

I really love how bright these glitters are. Depending on which base color you apply them they loose a bit of their brightness though. I applied over Ciaté’s sass pott and used different placements and also neon studs to brighten up this manicure.

To achieve this look you simply add tape at the parts where you want to keep the base color. Carefully add a layer of clear top coat where you want the glitter to stick. I made sure not to apply to much on the tape because it would we a waste of glitter since it would stick to the tape. Immediately add the glitter and while everything is still wet, carefully take off the tape. If there is some glitter poking out of the straight line, poke it back in place to get a clear edge.

Add small dots of clear polish to make the studs stick to your nail and you are done. I did not use any top coat to seal in the glitter, since I don’t like the way it looks.

How do you like the result?

[Review] Ciaté – Under the sea

Hey lovelies,

today I want to introduce to you a set by Ciaté I didn’t even know about before I saw it at my local TKmaxx.

Here we go with Under the sea

IMG_2326b

Besides it’s obviously perfect name (I am a huge fan of Ariel the Mermaid) this set is a super fun and bright bundle of joy. It includes three full-sized paint pots and comes in a cute sea/ocean inspired package.

IMG_2329b

IMG_2330b

All three polishes are super bright but require 2 good or 3 normal coats of polish. The polishes dry pretty quickly to a glossy finish.

The following polishes are included: (left to right)

  • PP135 palm tree
  • PP010 holiday blues
  • PP064 the glossip

Palm Tree is a very green polish, be careful though to use at least one or better 2 coats of base coat here and as well for holiday blues, sine most green or blue polishes can leave stains on your nails.

Nonetheless this polish is super fun. So far I haven’t seen a polish this bright green without being a pain in the a** to apply. This baby goes on super smoothly though. So I am happy now that I have a nice green polish in my collection.

IMG_2714b

IMG_2715b

IMG_2716b

Holiday Blues is also nice and bright, a good polish to create ocean inspired nails or a bright blue sky. It applies just as easy as Palm Tree and dries equally fast.

IMG_2718b

IMG_2719b

IMG_2720b

The glossip was probably the biggest surprise from this set. It is more of a coral pink instead of a “normal” kind of cold toned pink, which I really appreciate about this polish. I feel it is pretty unique so it turned out to be my favorite from this set. Who would have thought^^

Don’t let the picture fool you, in real it doesn’t look that red-ish.

IMG_2709b

I was really surprised to find this set. As far as I know they must have released it some time in 2014 I guess? I find the idea super cute, would have loved to have a sparkling top coat though, maybe some shiney polishes to re-create the shimer of the sun in the ocean water. To top that off I would have loved some small nail decorations, like shells, a crab or something like that. Maybe some foils to re-create a mermaids tail.

Now THAT woukd have been under the sea :D

 

Anyways, please also check my friend AJ’s post on this set. She created a super cute ocean inspired manicure.
