Ciate Mini Mani Month (box no.2)

13. marec 2014


Hello hunnies! Today is the second day of our Ciate Mini Mani Month 'trilogy'. If you haven't seen the first box, then please go check it out. Today we'll be talking about box no.2. :D I think this might be my favorite box out of all three but I can't really decide, I love them all and the reason I got all three is because every box has a few nail polishes that are the same as those in the other two, but then it has some that are 'unique' to it. Anyhew... let's get to the polishes, shall we?







The reason why I think I like this box the most is that you get a base and a top coat as well as a full size nail polish and of course a few of the caviar beads/sequins/glitter bottles. :) Other than that I also really like the shades that come in this box. Of course there are a few that are the same as the ones in box no.1, like Snow Globe, Boudoir, Hopscotch, Sugar Plum,... but there are also a few that are 'unique', like Ferris Wheel, Pepperminty, Encore, Confetti, Ivory Queen, Locket,...


L to R: Snow Globe, Boudoir, Hopscotch, Encore, Sugar Plum

L to R: Snow Globe, Boudoir, Hopscotch, Encore, Sugar Plum


The first 'set' consists of Snow Globe (holographic flakes), Boudoir (a classic red), Hopscotch (a gorgeous orange), Encore and Sugar Plum. Now on the pictures above it seems like Boudoir, Hopscotch and Encore are pretty much the same shades, the only difference is that some are more red and some are more on the orange side. In person though, all three shades look completely different and unique - Boudoir is a lovely, deep classic red, Hopscotch is a true orange and Encore... well Encore is the prettiest. It's actually a mixture of red, orange and a hint of pink/brown as well (the photos really don't do it justice). Sugar Plum is of course also stunning, one of my favorites.


L to R: Fit for a Queen, Kiss Chase, Pillow Fight, Pepperminty, Ferris Wheel

Then we have the pretties 'set' from this box - Fit for a Queen (metallic silver), Kiss Chase (hot pink, darker bubble gum pink), Pillow Fight (grey with a hint of lilac), Pepperminty and Ferris Wheel. Pepperminty is a gorgeous mint shade and a bit darker than the famous Mint Candy Apple from Essie. Last but not least is Ferris Wheel, a lovely pastel light blue shade, I have nothing like it in my collection. :)


L to R: Party Shoes, Play Date, Members Only, Ivory Queen, Amazing Gracie

L to R: Party Shoes, Play Date, Members Only, Ivory Queen, Amazing Gracie


The third set consists of Party Shoes (small golden and multi-colored glitter), Play Date, which looks like a bright red on the pictures above, but is really a gorgeous raspberry red or a pink-red. :) Then we have Members Only (a peachy pink pearly shade with tiny gold glitter), Ivory Queen, which is a stunning shade - again, the pictures don't do it justice. It looks like a pale peach shade but in real life it's a gorgeous peachy pink with a golden sheen to it, really lovely. And last but not least is Amazing Gracie (looks pretty white on the picture but it certainly has a little pink to it).


L to R: Confetti, Locket, Serendipity

L to R: Confetti, Locket, Serendipity


Then we have our glitters - Confetti (small silver and multi-colored glitter), a lovely nail polish. I think it would look great over so many different shades. :) Then we have Locket, which is a nail polish that is really rich in glitter, silver glitter that is. It's kind of similar to Antique Brooch as they are from the same collection... now that I think of it, it's actually more similar to Hors d'Oeuvres from Essie. This is more of a stand-alone glitter polish, it's not really a topper, though I would still use a 'base color' underneath it. And last but not least is the full size paint pot - Serendipity, a very interesting glitter polish. It looks pretty red on the pictures, but it's actually a gorgeous purple-pink. :)


L to R: Christmas Tree (Caviar beads), Frost Yourself (Caviar beads), Miss Mistletoe (Sequins), Jingle Belle (Glitter)

Speed coat & Underwear (top and base coat)


And then we also have our special effects 'thingies' - two bottles with caviar beads, one with sequins and one with fine glitter. In this box you also get a base and a top coat - Underwear and Speed coat. I haven't tried them yet but I'm curious how they perform (since I'm in love with my Nailtiques Formula 2 and Seche Vite Dry fast top coat).


So... here you have box no.2. Again, I paid 23 € for it on Allbeauty.com and I'm very happy with it. What are your thoughts, which shades caught your eye? :) Let me know, if you'd like to see a manicure with a certain shade...

  6. Hjo, kr pr srcu me stiska ker bi jih TAKOJ mela, vse tri paketke. Ampak sem se ravno zdaj odločila da nič ne nakupujem, ker je maturantski ples povsem izropal mojo denarnico. Si grem pa za tolažbo z enim starim mal nohte namazat. :(

    1. Res so lepi paketki... :D Ja, saj res, zdaj je času maturantskih plesov... a imaš že vse kar rabiš? Se boš sama namazala, uredila frizuro?

    2. Enega sem že dala mimo, fantovega, in sem za vse želela bit sam svoj mojster, pa mi s frizuro ni uspelo, ker imam tako goste in težke lase, da mi nič ne stoji. Me je blo sicer strah it, ker sovražim tiste polakirane umetne frizerske frizure, ampak je na koncu uspel zelo naraven rep, tako da sem bla zadovoljna. Naličila sem se pa sama, prvič v življenju (drugače uporabljam samo maskaro, juhej), tako da sem si rn mesec prej kupovala vse potrebno in vsak dan v trgovino probavala blushe in senčila, da se mi je na koncu že mešalo od vsega. Ampak se mi zdi da mi je na koncu dobro uspelo, sem bila zadovoljna in ponosna, ko sem videla obupne makeupe, nastale pri frizerju ali kozmetičarki, ki so jih punce vse razočarane brisale pred začetkom maturanca. Za svoj maturantski pa še nisem odločena glede frizure. Namazala se bom pa spet doma, mi je blo všeč :)
