I'm a simple Scottish girl with an unusual name and a strange obsession for nail polish! My aim is to capture what the eye sees, with a camera! Too much nail polish and never enough time. Welcome to my little world :-)

Ciate Day 24 Meet Me At Midnight

So we have come to the last day! It has been a quick 24 days I think.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It's a nice glitter with different things going on! Interesting one and pretty. Lasted well.

I would say that I was happy with this years calendar. I only got 2 doublers and there were some really nice polishes. I didn't like the design of it though.....poorly thought out as the boxes kept falling out. I preferred the little doors like they did in previous years! :-)

Ciate Day 22 Raincheck

Had to cut the nails really short, as one had ripped again! Not ideal, but these things happen :-|

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It's a nice blue, kind of like jeans blue! And it didn't stain! Slight tip wear, but last well otherwise.

Ciate Day 21 Cupcake Queen

This is a doubler of a doubler! Was bound to happen at some point! From 2012 and 2014.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2 minutes a coat). It's a lovely pink with a subtle shimmer. The shimmer certainly looks good in the bottle and isn't as obvious on the nail. Noticed slight tip wear. I still think the 2012 version is the best!

Ciate Day 19 Nail Saviour

This is a nail treatment and I didn't review it. I think to get good results you would need to use it for a few weeks. Sounds like a good thing though!

Ciate Day 17 Starry Night

I put this over Orly Color Blast Ultra Pink!
This is easy to use, you just sprinkle it over a wet nail. Make sure you have something underneath to catch the excess glitter. Make sure to tap the excess glitter off as well! Lasted well with top coat - China Glaze Fast Forward!

Ciate Day 15 Nail File

A nail file!!!! They had one last year: nail file. But I don't think this one is as good a last years! It's okay, but it is something you could easily find in most beauty stores. I guess it is a standard file.

My Personal Rating = 6/10! :-|

Ciate Day 14 Pretty In Putty

Sadly had to cut the nails as I had a little break and I wasn't able to save it! :-|

This is okay to use and okay to apply. Quite streaky on the 1st coat and I had plenty of polish on the brush for the 2nd. Drying time is okay (3-4 minutes a coat). It's an okay colour, I guess. Not really my thing and doesn't really look that good on me either! Lasted well.
