I had very little time for this manicure – 10 minutes from base coat to top coat. I grabbed my first Ciate polish – Silhouette and applied 2 layers + top coat.
That probably wasn’t the smartest move, since I did not get a handle of the brush right away, so the manicure was not neat as I wanted it to be.
Color is very lovely although not very similar to the color as seen in the bottle. Depending from lighting you’ll see red, purple or brown color.
In the sunshine – main color was dark red-purple. I missed more of the copperish shimmer to make this polish a must have shade.
After three day wear I addend a coat of the Essie Matte About You. I’m not really sure I like the effect, but I definitely love the fell of the polish – it’s like velvet.
This was the first time I used Essie MAY – this polish allows no mistakes while applying color polish.
As you can see, there is tiny white speck on pinky finger that just would not come off.
If you compare first and last photo – you can see that Ciate polishes work for me. Tip wear was minimal after the three day wear.
