Ciate Day 12 - Big Top

This is a glitter and I put it over Dance Legend Fushigi.

This is easy to use, just sprinkle it over a wet nail and tap off the excess. Make sure you have something underneath to catch the excess glitter! I think it would have looked better over a white as it is red and black glitter!

Ciate Day 11 - Cosmic Love

I put this over the last post: What The Shell?!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). There is a decent amount of glitter on the brush too, so no need to dip in and out. It is a nice mixture of holo glitters with moons and stars. Lasted well.

Ciate Day 9 - The Naked Truth

Well as you can see from my post yesterday, my nails are long! But sadly one snapped and I had to cut them so I am now down to short nails again!

This is easy to use, okay to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It was slightly streaky on the first coat but fine on the second. It is a cute pink! Noticed slight tip wear but lasted well otherwise.

Ciate Day 5 - Locket

Another doubler, this time from 2013. See here! Though, I think this one is slightly different too! It was put over a Kiko, that I still have to review on the other blog ;-)


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). I think it is slightly different, as this has a shimmer and 2013 didn't! It is really nice and lasted well.

Ciate Day 3 - Gelology Top Coat

Another doubler from 2016 - see here!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (1-2 minutes a coat) - it seemed slower than last years! Though I did use one thick coat. It does make the polish mega shiny and the polish lasted okay.

Ciate Day 2 - Cabaret

This is a double from 2012 - look here! Or is it??? Certainly looks different!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice purple red colour. Looks lovely and lasted well. But I do think it is less purple than the 2012 version!
