Ciaté Jelly Bean



















This month's British magazines have some fab freebies inside of them, which I'll list at the bottom of this post. One of them being a choice of 3 Ciaté polishes with Marie Claire. I picked up the colour Jelly Bean, shown above. It is a bright pink polish with a blue shimmer, which doesn't stand out in my picture but you can see it in the bottle. The two others are Bon Bon (taupe creme) and Purple Sherbert (pale purple creme). 

I've never tried Ciaté polish before, so I though this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. Their packaging is absolutely gorgeous, and you get a hefty 13.5ml of product which isn't bad for a retail price of £9. I found that the polish was incredibly easy to apply, and left a pretty opaque finish even after one coat (although I always use two with any polish). The brush isn't fiddly in the slightest which I love, since I am horrendous at applying nail varnish 99% of the time. 

The back of the box the product comes in states a 15% off the Ciaté website, so I think I'll definitely be checking out more of their products, especially since they're so cute!

Other magazines offering freebies this month are:
  • Glamour - Choice of 3 Benefit products (Porefessional primer, That Gal primer and Bad Gal mascara).
  • Red - Jemma Kidd eyeliner or mascara.
  • InStyle - Body Shop products (2 eyeliners or a mascara)
Have you picked up any of this month's freebies?  I walked home in the rain to get my hands on Glamour magazine but my local Morrisons and local paper shop didn't have it, boo! I'm also on Twitter now, follow me at @paintpotted!

  1. I didn't know that Marie Claire were offering free Ciate nail polishes. I must invest in this colour because its amazing and the quality is good too according to you. I love colours that are opaque and doesn't need to many coats =) Thanks for sharing~x

    1. I need to do the same, there is no way I'd pay that price for a primer without trying it first! Been to my local Morrisons last night and this morning though and they didn't have any! xx
