Jag tänkte börja året med att visa tre lack ur Ciatés Mini Mani Month (en nagellacksjulkalender!!) som jag så ivrigt köpte. Jag var dock ganska besviken på den, men mer om det senare. Jag gjorde en omvänd glittergradient med Headliner och två av de tre glitterlacken som var begränsade till kalendern och heter Glass Slipper och Magic Carpet. Och vet ni vad, det är ju Nail Art Sunday idag! Vad passande!
Innan jag börjar berätta om lacken så vill jag bara berätta att jag har testat en annan inställning på min kamera, så jag vill gärna höra er åsikt om bilderna.
Headliner är ett turkost krämlack med en bra formula. Den täcker i ett lager, men jag har två lager på bilderna, och jag ska berätta varför allra längst ned i detta inlägget. Nåväl. Det är ett bra lack och jag kommer garanterat använda det fler gånger. Färgen är ju inte speciellt unik, men den täcker ju faktiskt på ett lager!
Glass Slipper var det första limited edition lacken man fick i kalendern. Det är ett blått glitterlack med klar bas. Man skulle kunna tro att det bara är en storlek på glittret, men när jag swatchade det på en swatchstick så såg jag att det faktiskt är två storlekar! Men, båda storlekarna är så små att man inte ser det speciellt mycket.

Woops. What happened? Two weeks into the new year and this is my first blogpost. Well, I'll tell you quickly. I visited my boyfriend at New Years Eve, and had to go home the next day. I was working the 2nd-4rd. Then it was weekend again and I went back to visit my boyfriend. And my employment was extended another week so I've been working all week. When I got home from work I was so exhausted and tired so I didn't have the energy to blog. And by the way, I got extended another week so I will be working next week to.
I thought that I could start the year with some polishes from Ciatés Mini Mani Month Calendar. I was kinda dissapointed with it though, but I'll get to that later. I did a reversed glitter gradient using Headliner and two of the glitter polished that was limited to this calendar, named Glass Slipper and Magic Carpet. And you know what? It's Nail Art Sunday today! How appropriate!
Before I start with the polishes I just want to let you know that I've tried a different setting on my camera and would love to here your opinion on these photos.
Headliner is a turquoise creme polish with a nice formula. It covers in one coat, but I'm wearing two in these pictures, but I will tell you why in the end of this post. Oh well. It's a good polish and I can guarantee that I will use it again. The color isn't unique though, but seriously, it covers in one coat!
Glass Slipper was the first of the limited edition polishes that you got in the calendar. It's a blue glitter polish with a clear base. You might think that it's only one kind of glitter in it, but when I swatched it on a swatchstick I saw that it actually contains two sizes of blue glitter. But, the sizes are so tiny so you can't really see any differense.
Magic Carpet was the second of the limited edition polishes that you got in the calendar. It's a pink glitter polish that in first sight looks like the a pink version of Glass Slipper, but nope! Magic Carpet contains bigger pink hexagons and tiny pink glitter. It's not big hexagons though. How was the application of this polish? Well.. I'll show you.
I will show you two pictures. One with the brush I got with Headliner and one with the brush I got with Magic Carpet.
I'm so disappointed with this. First, when I opened the Headliner bottle, I was like "Well, this isn't right, it shouldn't look like this". At least I was able to use it, but thanks to this brush, one coat is not enough for me.
Then I opened the Magic Carpet bottle, and I was like "Seriously?! What the friggin flower is this?" (Okay, I didn't say friggin flower)
It doesn't end here, I'm disappointed with more things on this calendar. The first bottle I got had the bow on the middle of the bottle. Over the label! A lot of my bottles got polish stains on the outside of the bottle, and polish on the bottleneck. I got several brushes that was a bit twisted, like Headliner, but less.
Other than this, I actually think that Ciaté should have put more exciting polishes in the calendar, 'cause I think it was kinda boring. I was disappointed with the limited edition polishes, 'cause they are not special or unique at all. Not even close. Why didn't they put a bottle of a cool duochrome or something in there?
I will stop with the whining now. Hope you liked your calendar if you got one!
