Ciaté NOTD from Marie Claire

Hey all. I’ve recently  got the new Samsung Galaxy S3 (by recently I mean yesterday) bad I can now blog from my phone. Fingers crossed this  works as it’ll be easier for me and the camera seems  a lot better.

You’ll have to excuse me if the photos aren’t in the right place. Not fully sure how to user it. So onto today’s post. I don’t know about you but I love a good magazine freebie. Marie claire certainly didn’t disappoint this month, so far I picked up 2 copies and I’m considering the third.

I have the paint pots in jelly bean (a gorgeous bright pink) and  purple sherbet (a perfect pastel lilac ) if you have the pale pink I’d love to know if you think I need it. The magazine is only 3.70 and yer paint pots are full  size. I enjoyed reading the magazine too.

The bottles are so cute, a good handle that’s esay to hold, I sometimes  struggle with bottles like nails inc. And not to mention the cute bows on them.

The polish applies so smooth  and both shades looked gorgeous in two coats. Impressive for a pastel colour.

Purple sherbet is definitely a perfect some pastel shade and looks gorgeous on. Not too cool toned.

I was hugely  disappointed as it chipped in under 48 hours though. And one nail completely peeled off.

Jelly bean wowed me. A stunning barbie pink with a subtle blue shimmer that looks so pretty on. Not only that it lasted an impressive 4 days before it chipped and I needed to take it off. I’m not sure why this lasted and the purple sherbet didn’t.

You can see the hint of blue in the last photo. This is the first time I’ve tried Cianté paint pots. I’m half very impressed half disappointed. I’m hoping the lilac shade will last better next time.

Have you tried paint pots, what results did you get? Fingers crossed this post works. If you have any tips from blogging on my phone I’d appreciate them.

Love M
