I first came across Ciate when I got a free bottle with a copy of Marie Claire about 18 months ago. I still haven’t used it, but you can get it for a steal on evilBay. I’d been looking at their website for ages, waiting for inspiration to strike and then, up pops Jewel. And I’m sucked in. Really sucked in. Then I ordered, POW they were with me in 2 days flat and this includes the weekend. And then, Adele happened. This is good, I’m so in favour of a small brand getting the recognition it deserves with a quality product.
Jewel is amazing. Holographic strips suspended in a pale, sheer purple jelly. On my first coat I was a bit worried, coat two calmed me down a bit and by coat three, well KA-POW! Hello lovely. The way it completely covered the nail is amazing and to be truthful a bit unexpected. But cover it did. And my how she sparkled for me. Even a good dose of top coat left her beauty untouched. I’m rather smitten with this. The formula is quite thick, so its more akin to spreading a good dollop around the nail for even coverage. But the way it build up, I just cannot explain how it works, but it just does.
I bought this off the website for £9, its currently out of stock, probably due to all the press coverage over Adele and her nails. If you like glitter, holographics or anything like that, I suggest you get on that waiting list and get one!
EDIT – It was in stock when I checked late last week 😀
