Day 1 - Ciate Headliner



When I opened the first door - I was slightly let down as I've had this polish before. But when I put it on, it was nothing like the last time I used Headliner: Ciate Headliner

This is hard to use, hard to apply and the formula is really thick. It really isn't easy to work with. It is also really slow drying (5-6 minutes a coat). So this looks slightly different from the first time I posted it - this version is matte. The brush is good on the mini bottle and the lid is comfortable to hold. Despite the problems, I quite like the colour! Lasted well.

  5. I think I prefer this one compared to the glossy one - no complaints for the glossy one though! - I have something similar from Flormar - Matte. These Ciates sometimes are difficult to apply!

    1. I do like both, this one the formula was annoying though. Some of them are but on the most part they are okay. This isn't quite the Ciate Nightmare category though ;-)

  7. That is so weird that it's so different from the first you tried...
    I mean the finish alone...
    I have a thing with mini bottles, I love to look at them, but I hate polishing my nails with them...

    1. I know! I noticed that the PP number was different too!! I quite like this finish though.

      Sometimes mini bottles annoy me and other times I get on okay with them. I guess it depends on the brand. Most of these are okay along with most of the OPIs. :-)
