Todays NOTD comes from this baby! - Ciate Paint Pots in 'Cupcake Queen'. If you haven't heard of the bran before 'Ciate' is founded by Charlotte Straughan and was born out of her own salon buisness so it's more like a professional range, It has been feautured in many high profile magazines (Such as Elle, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Grazia, Vogue, Glamour, Company and many more) they also previously teamed up with ASOS and did a range of paint pots you might have seen on their site.
This shade is a fabulous neon type hot pink with a funky irredescent hue that gives a slight shimmer, You can get all the ciate nail colours (RRP £9 which from the site in Euro and Dollars for my internation readers is about €10 and $14 as they do ship internationally) make sure you have a look at their fab website http://www.ciate.co.uk they also do a range of:
- Hand care (Hand wash, Hand cream and Hand repair)
- Nail Collections (Festival Fever, Classics, Fashionista, Metallics, Nudes, Passionista, Pop & Pastels
- Nail Care (Top coats, Base coats, Cuticle oil, etc)
- Acessories (Nail remover/Nail files)
- Footcare (Foot oil, scrubs, etc)
This particular nail colour on their site is available HERE
This is my first Ciate paint pots although I have had their nail varnish remover which is great, and wow I am impressed! The long handle is great for application and it has a great flat brush, what I also loved most is that this only needed one coat, and I never get nail polishes that just need ONE coat! (All the pics have just one coat of this on aswell) I have been wearing it the past few days and still no chips, it's got a glossy finish and everyone keeps complementing me on the colour of it, plus it perfectley matched the dress I wore to my friends birthday night out this weekend (a seperate post with my outfit and make up and that night coming soon)
When it catches the light it really picks up on the shimmery hue it is which makes it a much more interesting colour than just been a flat colour, I couldn't get a much more close up of my finger than this LOL
I will definatley be picking up more Ciate Paint Pots so if anyone has any recommendations then please feel free to leave a comment below! From the look of the site I am loving 'Mojito' a lovely summery green, 'Couture Creme' a beautiful nude, and 'Skinny Jeans' a denim-y type blue, I could go on forever but you really do have to check them out, they're stunning!
