24 Days of Ciate - Day 24 Talent Scount

The end of the calender has come day 24. I really enjoyed getting a surprise everyday so I will definitely get one next year should they be available, I'd hope with some more dark winter colours, few less pastels ;)

Today I got Talent Scout, a nice basic dark purple creme. Very nice, 2 coats. 

It looks very nice with Day 1's Snow Globe. 

Enjoy! and Merry Christmas to my followers. x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 23 Mistletoe Magic

Day 23 Mistletoe Magic is a wonderful bottle of large sequins in red, green and gold. Very festive for the season. 

Not sure how I'd like the removal of these but a good peel off base coat would be helpful, lucky I have just the thing!

Wonderful isn't it? Only one more door to go.

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 22 Mini Nail Files

On day 22 we get another little secret gift, 3 mini glitter nail files. They are super cute and come in a little plastic pouch so they can go right in your hand bag like that,  perfect size never know when you'll chip a nail and I never have anything to fix them up so these have gone straight in my bag ;)

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 21 Iced Frappe

In day 21 I found the beautiful Iced Frappe which has hit my top 3 fave colours, the other 2 being Chinchilla and Apple & Custard respectively. 
Iced Frappe is a coffee colour nude, reminds me of milky coffee I like so much but with a mauvey hint. Only needed 2 coats to be opaque, it is really very pretty. 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 20 Apple & Custard

Day 20 holds one of the prettiest polishes so far and a major factor as to why I bought the calender apart from Chinchilla. Apple & Custard a lovely jade green, it's amazing with all the greens I do have that I can still have one that's different to them. I have no idea but between 10-15 at least :P

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 19 Ice Queen

Day 19 had another caviar beads in Ice Queen and it is so pretty. Packed full of pearly purple, pink, silver and gold mini beads it makes a perfect partner to Chinchilla which I've used to swatch below on my nail wheel :) I really love this one and can't wait to use these together!

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 18 Knickerbockerglory

Yeah that is the name, fabulous isn't it?

Knickerbockerglory is a fuchsia pink and very opaque. I only did one coat below and it covered well. 
This will be perfect for summer it's so bright and summery. 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 17 Members Only

Day 17 completely slipped my mind, to much Christmas wrapping, paper everywhere!
Day 17 is really pretty called Members only a shimmering nude colour that is good by itself but great layered over other colours. 

Very sheer mind, this is 4 coats swatched. 

2 coats over Hoopla and Hopscotch.

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 16 Chinchilla

Day 16 and my favourite so far other than Party Shoes is Chinchilla, this was the polish I fell in love with a pretty blue toned grey. It very much is the colour of a chinchilla. Very light compared with the lilac toned greys of Pillow Talk. 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 14 Party Shoes

Day 15 is so pretty, a nice glitter top coat called Party Shoes ^^

It's a nice gold glitter that has some blue shiny glitter in there and the little note, chocolate nail polish remover? Umm yes please ;)

Swatched over Pillow Fight, really shows off the blue. 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 13 Loop the Loop

Sorry followers, I didn't have time to post last night, it slipped my mind and I've been away all day (last minute Christmas shopping) ;) and just clicked that I still hadn't posted day 13 so here it is. 

Day 13 was Loop the Loop a very summery yellow creme, glides on well and isn't as sheer as other yellows out there. 2 coats will do it. 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 12 Hidden Gem

Day 12 is a Hidden Gem, literally that is the name and it's a nice mustard yellow. 
I have nothing like this in my collection, it's not something I'd buy myself but it's a welcome addition.

24 Days of Ciate - Day 11 Amazing Gracie

Day 11 Amazing Gracie was a bit of a pain to photograph, not so much in the bottle but definitely on the nail wheel, it just wouldn't show up it is very light and sheer. 3 coats to make it opaque, it's a delicate baby pink. I don't have any nudes this light so I'm sure it'll come in handy, great work paint for those who can't wear bright colours ;)

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 10 Pillow Fight

Day 10 the Ciate calender holds Pillow Fight a lilac toned grey and a very pretty polish it is too. 

Sheer on the first coat, this one took 3 coats for complete opaqueness. 

To bad I have all these lovely new nail polishes but bad nails to wear them, they've been so neglected there splitting and dry, so I'm back on the OPI nail envy and nail envy alone till there back in tip top shape ;)

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 9 Kiss Chase

Day 9 and we have Kiss Chase, a pretty hot pink creme only marred by the fact it has a dodgy brush :/ The brush is literally curved like a hook, I have forgotten to upload the pic of the brush but it's not good *sigh*

Anyway here is Kiss Chase

Perfect colour for Summer.

24 Days of Ciate - Day 8 Deck the Nails

Day 8 Ciate Mini mani month calender holds the first of caviar beads for me. 
Very excited to try this one out soon and it's very Christmassy!
Deck the Nails is full of red, gold, silver mini beads to decorate your nails with. 
I've matched it over the swatch of Boudoir I did as I think it suits it perfectly. 

So pretty.

24 Days of Ciate - Day 5 Hoopla

Day 4 became a bit of a disappointment, my bracelet broke after a couple hours, just unravelled itself. I've contacted Ciate see if there's anything can be done because I really liked it and I'd really like it fixed and I have no idea how there put together :(

Anyway onto another door, day number 5 and a lovely pastel shade that will do nicely come spring ^^ Hoopla a delicate peachy toned pink. Sadly I'm not wearing any nail polish right now, I've had a few bad breaks 2 on my left hand and 1 on my right that took off 3mm above the nail line, yeah big ouch! 

Enjoy! x

24 Days of Ciate - Day 4 Ciate Bow Bracelet

Hello on to day 4 of the calender. A bit of a different gift today, a Ciate bow bracelet. 

The little message inside says:

and you really can with this little bracelet from black string and a little gold (not real obviousley lol) which is able to be pulled in or out depending on size. Good thing because my wrist is tiny so I pulled it loads :P

It's just a pretty and nice little extra gift to have, I really like mine.
