Yet again another doubler! This one featured in the 2012 Calendar HERE. I had hoped it was slightly different - maybe matte or textured - but no such luck!
This is hard to apply and really streaky. Like the one before it, a total nightmare! I think I could class this as part of my Ciate Nightmare Gang (Doll House Collection, et al). Having had 2 years more experience painting my nails, I tried my best to deal with it. Drying was slow because I used thick coats (probably 6-7 minutes at least per coat). Thick coats and minimal brush strokes are the way forward with the polish. And that's difficult because it is a mini, probably applies better with the full sized bottle! All that said I still really like the polish! And it did last well.
Easy to use = 4/10
Application = 3/10
Drying time = 5/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Finish = creamy
Removal = easy
Overall = 4/10
Purchased from = Selfridges
My Personal Rating = 7/10 :-) Poor formula but nice colour!
Oh how I love this shade ! Shame the application is so bad :(ReplyDelete
It is so nice! I know - it sucks! LOL :-)Delete
You really don't have much luck with that calendar - I'm guessing you will not buy it next year LOLReplyDelete
It's so strange Ciate don't think that far...
I know :-( I might, I don't know! knowing me though, I probably will ;-)Delete
Really, they should have hmm?
hope it's different than the previous one, but not bad color at all :DReplyDelete
It's exactly the same! It's a nice yellow yeah :-)Delete
They repeat themselves but the color is great and you managed excellent with this polish :)ReplyDelete
I know *boo* I was quite pleased with the final result - certainly better than my last attempt in 2012 *cough* ;-)Delete
Yellows are SO troublesome to apply but they're so cool, eye catching and striking :) Ciate Nightmare Gang, lolol!! Polishes that spendy shouldn't be nightmare inducing.ReplyDelete
I know - I know! They annoy me but I do like them! They really are eye catching :-)Delete
Yeah it's part of that Gang now! I know they really shouldn't!!!!!! :-O
Oh too bad about the application :( I think the colour is amazing though!ReplyDelete
Yeah! It really is a pretty one :-)Delete
I admire how patient you are with your polishes! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! It must be part of my obsession - the care, love and attention I give them :-)Delete
