Ciate - Purple Sherbet

Thursday, 21 June 2012



I received this free in July's edition of Marie Claire 2012, this was the colour that I least wanted the others ware Ciate Jelly Bean, a bright pink which I really loved and the second was Ciate Bon Bon, which is a nude and is very similar to my Nails Inc Basil Street.  However, I wanted the magazine there and then as I was on my lunch break and needed something to read. So I settled with this colour and thought I would swap it with one of my friends. But then on Sunday night whilst I was laying in bed looking at my bare nails which had been colour free for at least five days! :( I was watching My Week With Marylin (which I was expecting it to be better than it was but it was still enjoyable) I saw this colour in my collection and tried it. It took only two coats and the next day at work I was paid so many compliments that I think it comes in being my third favourite colour after my orange and Basil Street. :) 

The nail polish to buy is £9 so getting it free with a magazine which I would normally buy is a bonus for me but even if you're not a frequent reader of Marie Claire then the magazine only costs £3.70 so you are still making a saving. There is also a 25% voucher inside for Ciate too - which after this polish I will definitely be using.

Did anyone else get Marie Claire this month?

  1. that is a stunning colour! I love pastels but if I use them on my nails it feels off somehow, so for now I am sticking to bright colours!

  17. I don't usually buy Marie Claire, but I picked this issue up purely for the free polish! It's my first Ciate nail varnish and I was so impressed with it! It was opaque in 2 coats and didn't chip for about 4 days. Such a good campaign by Ciate because I will definitely be purchasing from them again now!
