I received a full-sized Ciaté nail polish in my February Glossybox; 'Fade to Greige' is described as a "violety-grey hue which is both modern and flattering, plus it won't drain pale skin like so many grey-toned polishes do." Generally speaking, I really like Ciaté polishes; not only are the bottles super-pretty, with the little bows, but the wide, flat brushes make application so quick and easy, and the polishes dry to a gorgeous glossy finish.
'Fade to Greige' isn't a shade I would have chosen for myself, as I tend to favour brighter shades or pastels for my nails - I rarely pick neutrals, somehow! I think it's an odd choice for a February box as it's a shade I'd associate more with A/W than S/S, but that might just be me. That aside, it's perfectly opaque in two coats, and dried quickly to a super-glossy finish without the need for a separate top-coat.I do quite like the shade now it's on my nails - I think it looks quite chic and the purple tone to it means it's quite flattering even on my pale skin.
Ciaté's 'Fade to Greige' is available direct from their website, priced at £9 for 13.5ml of product, which is a bit more than I'd usually spend on nail polish. However, I think Ciaté's polishes are really lovely in terms of formula and, of course, packaging, so they do make a nice treat if you fancy splashing out! Have you tried any Ciaté nail polishes? Do you like the look of 'Fade to Greige'?
