There’s nothing quite like a Boots order arriving on a rainy morning. (Especially when it comes in the form of five mini nail polishes in a cute little house.) Metallic shades have hit the runways hard this Autumn/Winter, which is a trend I’m particularly drawn to. I couldn’t say no when I realised Ciaté released this charming gift set, which allows you to tap into the metallic trend without having to splurge on a whole new wardrobe.
Shades from left to right: Can Can, For the Thrill of It, Sass Pot, Knee Highs and Tickle My Fancy.
The polishes give a subtle metallic finish to the nails, making them really wearable. It’s rare that I’m drawn to all of the shades in a gift set and I usually end up neglecting a couple of the colours, but I love all of these. Even though taste in different colours varies from person to person, the fact that the polishes are in mini size allows you to try a few out without breaking the bank.
I really enjoy the formula of Ciaté polishes, and it is worth spending a little more for a manicure that’s really going to last. With the exception of the metallic gold shade, all of the shades are fully pigmented in a single coat. The brush is nice and wide which allows application in one simple swipe (great if you’re like me and try and paint your nails in about 5 seconds).
If you’re looking to buy someone a present, or just want to treat yourself like I did, I’d grab one of these gift sets while you can! I think the price of £22 is really reasonable for the five polishes you receive.
What trends are you guys loving this Autumn/Winter? I’d love to hear any of your suggestions to help me transition my wardrobe and style into the colder months.
