Ciate "Cabaret"

Hi dears! Before I start on this post proper, I thought I'd let you all know I have joined the smartphone world and now have an Instagram account! It won't only be nails - I take an awful lot of pictures of my pets, and sunsets, and life in general - but I'd love it if you could follow me, and I'll follow you right back - http://instagram.com/annabean1983 (or click on the Instagram button on the right).

Now, nail time! Today's colour is Ciate "Cabaret", a rich, medium/deep, red-toned plum creme. I struggled to apply it as I only have a mini bottle and I just can't get to grips with the brush handle - I am too cack-handed. Formula is generally fine though, a little brush-strokey on the first coat, but perfect after the second.

Pictures show two coats plus base & top coat:






I bought a cover to protect my lovely shiny new phone and lookie, it matches! Not that that was planned or anything.... ;)



Thanks for reading, and come back again soon :) x

  5. I love this colour - so rich and plummy! It doesn't look as though you are too cack-handed though with the mini brush! Is this colour from the ciate advent calendar? Would you recommend ciate as I like their colours but have heard that they don't always apply as smoothly as one would like. The shine on the nails is incredible too! Do you use a particular top coat? x

    1. Thank you very much :) Yes this was in the advent calendar, I think it's my favourite one! I don't have an awful lot of Ciate polishes, but I think it's fair to say the quality is variable - this one is perfectly fine, others I have are not so. I use Nubar "Diamont" top coat, and I love it :) xx
