Nail Of The Day: Ciate Purple Sherbet Nail Polish Review
Continuing on with this month’s magazine goodies, I also picked up a copy of Marie Claire which came with a choice of 3 full sized (13.5ml bottle) Ciate nail polishes in the shades: Bon Bon, Jelly Bean and Purple Sherbet. I chose the latter, Purple Sherbet.
I’ve never owned any nail polishes by Ciate before so I couldn’t wait to try it out!
Ciate nail polishes have a much flatter bottle, with a curve at the back and comes with with a cute little bow on the front.
The shade Purple Sherbet is a pretty lilac/candy coloured purple.
The formula is of a nice consistency, but it is very sheer. After the 1 coat my nails were barely covered and it looked more like I’d only applied a top coat. The polish dries incredibly quickly though compared to most other nail polishes I own.
Even after the 2nd coat I found it was still a bit too sheer. It was only after the 3rd coat that I felt that my nails were evenly covered. This is a first for me as the nail polishes I already have normally achieve the finish I’m looking for after 2 coats.
Aside from the 3 shades which come with Marie Claire magazine, there is a lovely selection of other colours available from Ciate’s website. Ciate nail polish are around £9 per bottle which I consider expensive considering you have to apply at least 3 coats to get the right coverage.
Did you pick up Marie Claire this month? What are your thoughts on Ciate nail polishes?

I also chose purple sherbet, its a really lovely feminine shade and having to do three coats would annoy me but it dries so quickly! Its nice to try a new colour, I usually go for vampy reds and greys!
I’m the opposite! 🙂 I do tend to go for pastel, light shades but you’re right it is nice to change it up once in a while and try something different! 🙂
I chose the bright pink. It went on nicely and only needed two coats. But it began to chip quite quickly and lasted less than three days before it looked a complete mess.
Oh no, that’s a shame! The colours are so gorgeous, but something can be done about the quality. I think I’ll be sticking to my high street favourites for now 🙂
