Ciaté Refresher

I love discovering new (to me) nail polish brands. I am so glad I had the opportunity to try Ciaté polishes. Today I want to show you Refresher, a beautiful light blue creme. I didn´t have such a color in my collection and now I am thinking, how could I? I love it! It looks so clean and pure. And so glossy too (no top coat on the picture, just the polish). Application was ok for me, just be careful not to make too thick coats. I did three coats, but two would be absolutely fine. I think this is a perfect spring color. Can´t wait to decorate it with some Konad!

Oh and did I say how much I love the bottle? I think it is one of the cutest bottles out there (together with Nfu Oh). Can there be something sweeter than a black bow? Love it. You can buy Ciaté polishes here. They are a bit pricey (£9.00 for 13.5ml) but a great way to spoil yourself :) They have some really nice colors! And I think that Refresher is one of them. What about you, do you have any Ciaté polishes? Any must haves?

New Gray Nail Polish for Spring 2010

New Gray Nail Polish for Spring 2010
Remember when Chanel tipped us off that they'd be debuting a new nail polish shade at their Spring 2010 runway show?

Well, today they did. And gray is the word for spring.

Fall 2009's must have shade, Jade, was designed by Chanel creative director Peter Philips to accent the sea green highlight tone in their Fall tweed.

And this putty-ish shade (According to Style.com, its name is Particulière) is similarly complementary, acting as a smart accessory to the mainly monotone beige, gray, ivory and black nubby weaves in the Spring show. And it offers and edgy counterpoint to the tattoos Philips designed for the show.

The shade, which commenters are sounding off on at All Lacquered Up, appears to be a purple based gray that's a hair paler and purpler than Sephora by OPI's Metro Chic - one of the polishes at the forefront of the gray manicure movement back in Fall 2008 - and cements the dark nails trend that emerged in New York and remained consistent in London, Milan and now Paris.
