Free With Marie Claire - Ciate Paint Pot


April appears to be month of the magazine freebies, and Marie Claire are once again offering a free Ciate nail polish. You have the choice of either Pocket Money (above), which is a creamy, fudge coloured nude or Sand Dune, a metallic gold. Pocket Money appealed to me more and so I snapped it up.

The application isn't the best as it's quite streaky on the first coat, but with two it's opaque and dries to a very flattering everyday colour. Drying time is quite lengthy but nothing that a fast-dry top coat or the like can't help with. If you're a nude fan I'd recommend picking this up, I think Marie Claire is only £3.70 whereas the polishes themselves retail for £9.

If anyone has chosen Sand Dune over Pocket Money I'd love to know what you make of it!

  1. This looks like such a pretty colour! I love Ciate polishes but know what you mean about the initial streakiness. May have to pick this up! X

  2. I am SO jealous that we don't get these kind of offers with magazines here in the states!! This looks like such a lovely color and I've always wanted to try out the Ciate polishes :)
