Supplies used... 
Sally Hansen Insta-Grip Fast dry Base Coat
Ciate Mojito  // two coats
L'Oreal Confetti // one coat
Seche Vite Top Coat

Despite being very excited about the Ciate Nail Polish Advent Calender when I got it, since opening them all I haven't really used the polishes that much. I've decided to try them all at least once and then I'll be able to pass on any colours I'm not really a fan of. With Ciate Mojito I knew I just had to pair it with L'Oreal Confetti as I love green polishes with the white and black glitter top coats.

I was surprised at how watery Mojito was and if I wasn't going to add a glitter top coat then it would have needed a third layer to even out the colour. Although three coats aren't a lot, when you add base and top coats as well, for an impatient person like myself I just can't stand it. I tend to not use polishes that need more than two coats.

Considering the full price of Ciate polishes are £9 I just don't think this one is worth it. Will I be keeping the mini bottle though? I haven't made up my mind yet as I have a couple of similar colours with better formulas.

  4. Oh! I do need this colour, but if you say the formula isn't the best, I might have to try another brand. Any suggestion?

  5. I love the confetti nail polish it gives your nails a unique twist. I also love the green shade even though you say the ciate nail polish is watery

  8. I love the combination, but what a shame that the formula is rubbish, especially when it is £9 full size! xx
