A little while ago I bought my first ever Ciate polishes in one of their many massive sales (I picked up the Nail Lab in a more recent one - will blog about that soon!). I'd never really been particularly interested in Ciate - I didn't think the polishes particularly looked anything special and I didn't like all the drama they'd created about people using the term caviar manicure. But dammit I love a bargain.
One of the items I bought was the Mini Paint Palette. Seemed like a good way to try out their polishes :)
I used a base of Amazing Grace, a pretty soft pink jelly. I then painted on Looking Glass to create a gradient. I actually really wasn't expecting Looking Glass to look like that; I thought it was a glitter, but it's actually a stealth holo! Happy days!
I really like the effect of the holo blending into the non-holo base - I should definitely do more of these! All-in-all I can't criticise the quality of the Ciate polishes I've tried. Although, as always, there are about 5 from this set still sitting unused...I should really stop buying polish.
