Marie Claire Ciate free polish

Being the nail polish addict I am, at the beginning of the month I always take a stroll down the magazine isle in the supermarkets. Snooping for freebie polish. This time I spotted Ciate free with Marie Claire.

The magazine retails at £3.80 and the polish is worth £9.00. The two colours to choose from are pocket money and sand dune. If you want both I would recommend going to Sainsburys. At my local store the magazine had a sticker on saying buy 2 save £2.00. £5.60 for high-end brands isn’t bad in my opinion. Hidden in the back is another freebie of jergens body lotion, which I’m going to use as hand cream.

I went with pocket money, as I own two different golds already. I did have to search a little for pocket money; Sainburys had sold out of the colour, Whsmith had the magazine but no freebies, the newsagent helped me out though.

Ciate describe the colour as ‘creamy fudge’. It took me 3 coats; application was streaky for me until the third coat. In my stash it is a very unique colour, and suits my skin tone.

Pocket money is the perfect base for bedazzled and all its coppery goodness. I then added the gold triangles after seeing the design on pshiiit. I do wish I had left pocket money plain, but oh well.

Products used: Usual base and top coat. Ciate in pocket money. Technic in bedazzled. W.I.P is and unknown gold (has no label). Stripping tape.
