Don’t you just love going to Marshall’s and rummaging through shelves and clothes for hours to walk away with a real bargain? I uncovered one box of the Ciaté Dolls House Collection in five gorgeous pastels — soft nude, white, peachy pink, lilac, and pistachio green, among a pile of polishes and glosses. I was ecstatic to find it was $9.99, when it was originally $25! It is still sold at full price at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s. I will add the links below. 🙂 Let me show you how pretty these shades are!
I did not know that these colors would dry matte, but I have noticed most pastel colored nail polishes do. Since they dry matte, they will just require a few more coats than usual. Even with three coats, it appears streaky and flat. The flatness I can fix!
See! No worries. I added a few more coats to get full, gorgeous color. Luckily, they dried very quickly, so it did not get clumpy in between coats. I prefer my nails with a bit of shine, so I finished it with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. This guy dries so quickly and gives me that professional salon shine.
I was going for polka dots, but I hope you like the look of a dinosaur egg. For the asymmetrical spots on the index finger, I dipped a bobby pin into the Dollface bottle and dabbed it around the nail, re-dipping as needed to pick up more color.
This was my first time using Ciaté nail colors, and I was very happy with them. I love all of the colors. I can’t wait to wear them alone or all together again! And, let me tell you about the deal. Normally, a .45 oz bottle of Ciaté polish is $15 and a .15 oz of a Ciaté mini polish is $8. This collection was already a great deal in that you save $15, but I got it for $10. I saved $30!

Let me know what you think about the colors, and if you care about applying so many coats of polish. 🙂
I am excited for my mom and brother to arrive tomorrow! I have quite the week planned for them. We will be touring my side – the beaches, St. Augustine another day, and lastly, downtown. My mom wants to do a little shopping, so I hope the St. Augustine Outlets has some deals for us!
Today is a fresh start to a new week! Let’s make it a great one.
