Swatch: Ciate Dangerous Affair

Finally after a bit of a hiatus, I have a new post! Today is my little brother's birthday (17!) but I couldn't seem to come up with a design for a birthday manicure so...today is a swatch post for Ciate Paint Pot Dangerous Affair, a gorgeous burgundy that is perfect for...well...not spring or summer weather. However, because I'm me I tend to rock whatever color fits my mood at the moment (seasons be damned!) so I will work this polish even though it's springtime here. I think the formula is a little thinner than a normal polish but it dries quickly and it's still really opaque so it's not really a big deal. Just slap some Seche Vite Top Coat on there and it looks great. The burgundy that is on the nail is definitely the same as what shines in the bottle so that's awesome. I hate when I choose a color but then when it gets on my nails it's something totally different. The cost for Ciate full size polishes is about $15 USD but mine is a mini that was part of the Christmas Advent Calendar that Bloomingdales sold (so I have a ton of really amazing Ciate polishes in mini). I'd say this polish would get a 9 on a scale from 0-10. Check out the amazing shade of this polish:

Also, some exciting news! My sweetheart and I will be spending a few days at the ocean tomorrow! I have to do a beach appropriate manicure!


  1. Love that this polish dryes so quickly!
