Day 8 - Ciate Big Yellow Taxi

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.

Rating
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!

  5. 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.
