Ciate Paint Pots Free with Marie Claire Magazine!


When I saw that Marie Claire were giving away 1 of 3 shades free with their magazines, I went out and bought 3 copies! The Colours are absolutely gorgeous, not to mention I think Ciaté are such a good quality brand. 

 As I say, there were 3 different shades, and they each come in their own pretty little boxes and packagaing! I have a couple more of these paints which came with magazines, and I've kept them in their boxes, it just makes them look a bit more high quality.
 I love how they come with these cute little bows on the pots! They look so pretty :)
 So the shades were Bon Bon, Purple Sherbet and Jelly Bean. Lovely names? Makes them sound good enough to eat!
 Bon Bon, is a very neutral beige/nude shade. 

 Purple Sherbet, is a very pale lilac shade.


 Jelly Bean, is a hot pink shade, it does have a slightl shimmer finish to it. 



Application of all the polishes was super easy, probably due to the flat shaped brush, which makes it easy to coat the nail in as little as one stroke, depending on how much pressure is applied. 

The coverage is great, the above photo's were taken with 2 coats of polish, as recommended. Maybe the lilac colour could have done with a quick 3rd coat as there are a couple of stroke marks.

The magazine cost around £3.80, which is great value for money, as these nail polishes retail for £9 each. If you can get your hands on any of these magazines, make sure you take advantage of the bargain price!! They really are worth it.

You can see the full Ciaté range of polishes here.

Have you managed to get hold of any of these, what do you think of them??

  9. I got the Purple Sherbet one, I love it! Does Jellybean have a blue tint in the light or is it just the photos making it look that way? :)xxx
