Beautiful & Smooth Play Date from Ciaté

Sephora Paris

When I was in the Sephora in Paris, I was so overwhelmed by the products in the store and I was just…lost in heaven.

As much as I was spoilt by all the choices there, I just couldn’t find anything to buy.

But, I knew I just had to.

Ciate Vernis Playdate 105

After a brief tour in the store, I decided to pick up a bottle of Ciaté nail polish.

If you remember, Ciaté is the brand famous for the caviar nail polish (which I have not used too). It’s a UK based brand, yet I did not see them around when I was in London. And it is a brand with 3-free formula (Dibutyl-Phthalate, Toluene or Formaldehyde)

It was 10€ per 13.5ml.

Ciate nail polish brush head

This is a bright pink with red undertone, and it’s a perfect color if you think red is too common.

I quite like the bottle shape as it’s quite space saving compared to the normal OPI round bottle. However, it has a rather small and long brush.

Thankfully, the formula which is smooth and easy to apply made up for the thin brush. I need a few strokes on one nail to cover it completely.

And, even one coat itself is pigmented enough. It dries up fast too so it does not require a lot of time and effort to get it right.

Now I wish I had picked up a few more colors.

Barry M Confetti Nail Effects

Another nail polish that I picked up from Boots UK was this Barry M Confetti Nail Effect polish.

I like the furry look of it, and it actually looks like the fur drops off from Elmo :) My first nail polish from Barry M was the crackle nail polish, and I still think that Barry M is the only company who got it right having tried a couple of other brands.

This confetti comes in a clear polish, and you will have to top it over a color coating, it does not look nice on its own.

And I like that it’s really dense, hence you will not have problem picking the confetti up like certain glitter nail polishes.  It’s a party polish!

Barry M polishes are affordable and funky, and it’s something that you won’t mind having one ;)

I wonder if there will ever be a Malaysia-based brand polish, that would be interesting!
