Ciate has long been a favourite of mine when it comes to nails. Every time I see the little bows in store I can’t resist buying a new shade. So when I set my eyes on this new collaboration I was excited to try it.
Olivia Palermo has teamed up with Ciate to create a new Olivia Palermo X Ciate collection, and I have to say the result is beautiful. The colours are very safe, a red a coral and a nude. I tried ‘Hutch – My Go To Red’ and I had high hopes as the polish comes in at almost twice the price of the normal polishes at £17. So first impressions, the brush was beautiful and really made painting my nails easy. The polish itself was gorgeous and definitely looked and felt different to the usual formulation that I’m used to. It glides on and the pigmentation is so bold and plump. It’s formulated with something called Dual Polymer Mesh Lock technology. Although that doesn’t mean much to me, the finish of the polish does! It’s so much better than most polishes I own and looked so thick and glossy. It dried quite fast and after 4 days was still chip free.
A little throw in here but I wanted to mention it. I’ve been so frustrated with bad nail files recently so I came across these Lottie Sundowner ones and wanted to mention them. They file really well and look super cute. Make sure you file your nails well before you paint them!
The price tag is so worth it, for a little bit more I’ve got a polish that looks stunning and won’t chip. Plus the bottle looks really cute on my dressing table! I’m excited to try the other shades and hope the formulas are the same! What do you think of the three shades? Becky x
