Ciate Ladylike Luxe

I usually do my nails at night. I often take my showers in the morning (after which my nails flatten and my cuticles look destroyed for at least an hour). And I often have to be places other than home with my camera when sunlight comes creeping across my balcony. ...and I don't like taking photos of shimmers (or glitters) in my lightbox. So what happens is that I end up eating breakfast with an eye on the balcony for when sunshine starts creeping in enough for me to stick my hand into it for a shot. And when there is just enough sun, I run out and snap a pic real quickly...

Which is why some of my shots come out looking all crooked-like with uneven light.

Ciate Ladylike Luxe

This one needed sunlight though or else it would've looked pretty dull. It's a fairly ordinary gold that seems neither excessively warm or excessively cool. But it does become nice and shiny in the sunlight. It was opaque in two coats, though one nail needed a third coat. Dried quick. Easy application. My typical experience with Ciate so far. It's so non-essential to nail polish but I do love that little bow on the bottle. :)

Oh, and I forgot, Ciate having a 15% off all orders from their website. Code: CT15DS, expires: July 24th, 2010. I've had great experiences ordering from them: the last time I did (during this sale), they shipped (from the UK) only a few days after I put in the order and it got to me half a week later!

And now to celebrate the SO's birthday with his family! I'm currently in their hometown but he and I will be flying back home to the West Coast tomorrow.

I don't have any Ciate polishes, but this 15% off thing would be a good opportunity. Too bad I don't have any money. :( Beautiful gold, though!

Pretty! Looks kindalike Zoya Richelle, which I am wearing right now. I do my nails at night too... :)

I do my nails at night. In BED! I have 3 cats, two of them persians. I'm so bad... and consider it a miracle they're not full of cat hair when I wake up

I don't own any of this brand. I do have a list of "wants" though. So far I'm resisting them. That bow is adorable. I also like the bottle shape. It's a nice gold of which I have many. I do know what you mean about the light. Gold really does come to life then.

@zara: aww… well, rent and food is more important than polish… I guess…

@faith: If I had to do my nails in the morning, they'd be a mess. I'm so not a morning person.

@ruthless: hahaha, that's impressive!

@lucy: it's not a must have from Ciate but there are definitely a few Ciates that are amazing. My favorite is probably Apple & Custard.
