On My Nails: Ciate Bon Bon

I got this lovely Ciate nail polish free with a magazine last summer and I've only used it twice! Which is shocking as I don't even own that much nail polish and this one is housed in such a pretty bottle! This is the only Ciate polish I own actually, I wish I'd of got their advent calendar as that was amazing value and such a clever little idea. There'll be loads of beauty advent calendars this year I'm sure thanks to their success last year, so we'll be spoilt for choice!

Never one for subtle I had to add a little glitter in the form of NYC's Gramercy Glitz another polish I'm pretty sure I've never touched before. It's not in your face and added a nice bit of sparkle for £2.50, win.  For topcoat I used topshops clear nail polish, I'm just trying to use it up really, though it is still really good, it adds mega shine and dries pretty fast, nothing to rate home about though, I'll probably buy something cheaper when it's dead.

My pretty pastel purple nails lasted about a week before the chips were embarrassing (and I'd started to pick it off.. shhh) so pretty good wear time I think! This would have been a more appropriate colour if spring had decided to show it's face, but we still have snow!? Clearly the world is coming to an end.

Did you pick up this freebie many moons ago?
