Day 16 - Ciate Cupcake Queen



Another doubler! Bloody Ciate!!!!!! I had this one a few years ago, and I think the one a few years ago was better! Here's the link: 2012 Cupcake Queen. The blue shimmer is much more evident in the old one compared to this one!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The blue shimmer is really subtle and not as obvious as the previous version I had! Boo. I do like the colour but I'm a bit disappointed that it's a doubler and not as good! Lasted well.

  5. In case of this colour I wouldn't be too disappointed ;o). But less shimmer? That's a bit strange.

    Kind regards,

  11. :( sorry to hear you got another duplicate... except that it's not as good as the original! i love pinks like this with blue shimmer... such a shame the shimmer isn't very visible in this version!
