Ciate 2018 Day 20 - Cookies and Cream

This is a doubler from 2012 and 2015. This one also had a damaged bottle lid.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4 minutes). I used one coat with this, whereas previous years it was 3. I think the formula was thick because of the lid being damaged. Or perhaps they've changed the formula? It is an okay polish, not really my colour.

Ciate 2018 Day 17 - Pepperminty

This is a doubler from 2013.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4 minutes a coat). It is quite streaky on the 1st coat but builds up nicely on the 2nd. It looks different from the previous time in 2013, this one is more dusky. Nice enough anyway.

Ciate 2018 Day 14 - Jelly Oil

This is a treatment.


I used this a few times on my cuticles and I think it is really good. It hydrates well and leaves them looking lovely. It has a nice scent, reminded me of honeydew melon :-) Definitely recommend for dry cuticles.
