Sunday evening is upon us again. For me anyway, the most depressing night of the week. For that reason I am going to share with you all a post I have been looking forward to doing for some time. The Ciaté London Olivia Palermo Fashion Edit collection includes four miniature nail polishes created in collaboration with the beautiful Olivia. They have been inspired by the runway from the London, Milan, New York and Paris fashion weeks. This collection really does offer a colour for everyone and is the perfect way to try a new shade without splashing out on the full size.
The packaging is really pretty and has been taking pride of place on my dressing table since Christmas! The lid lifts off to reveal the four polishes, and was a real pleasure to photograph. They are however so pretty that this gives me the problem of deciding which colour to choose! Decisions decisions!
New York – Hutch – A vivid bold red
Milan – Sunday’s – A lovely powdery pink and is, surprise surprise, my favourite!
Paris – Napa Valley – A rich bordeaux red
London – Brooklyn – A deep purple
The Nail Polishes are very pigmented and the darker polishes looked good with just one coat. The bottle design made application a breeze and I particularly appreciated the larger brush that Ciaté are known for that make application a dream. I found the formula of the nail colours to be particularly good. The polishes contain an exclusive and advanced dual polymer mesh lock technology that ensures a durable and long lasting shine. Volcanic glass is also added to the polish to create a plumped up gel like appearance.

I will share with you the full manicure as and when I choose to wear the colours, but at least you can see swatches of them if you are thinking of purchasing. You can buy the full sizes for £17.00. This collection of miniatures (each 5ml) is priced at £25.00 so it is an affordable way of trying out a variety of shades.
I love how the nail colours are so rich and the packaging divinely pretty. A box ticker in every way.
I hope you found this post useful, and I would love to hear if you have tried these colours out. Ciaté London have collaborated with Olivia Palermo to create a makeup collection and the colours look equally as amazing. Lovely earthy browns and muted nudes are the colour palette in making everyday lipsticks and eyeshadows. Have you tried any of these products? I would love to hear how you have found them and if they are as impressive as the pigmentation of these nail colours. I can say however, that if they make me look like Olivia Palermo then put my name down for one of everything!
I will see you all tomorrow for Lipstick Monday.
Talk to you all soon x
