NOTD // Ciate 'Poppet' Swatch & Review

I was a little apprehensive of painting my nails in a matte, pastel lilac this time of year but I decided tog o against the 'trends' and try out my lovely new Ciate Dolls House nail polish collection. As I mentioned, I started with this gorgeous lilac shade called Poppet.


I love matte shades but I'm always a little wary of them chipping easily. You can't top coat them unless you have a matte top coat (which I don't) so there is no way to protect the shade.


The nail polish itself applied really nicely. It went on a little streaky at first but after two coats it was fine and it was so quick-drying I could patch up any lighter areas quickly. Once applied it dries to an opaque lilac matte which is just beautiful.

I'm delighted that it hasn't chipped yet! I am wearing my nails quite short at the moment which probably helps but after two days of wear there hasn't been any kind of chips/damage despite not having a top coat. I'll update you when it does chip ;)

I'm so glad I got the Dolls House collection and I can't wait until Spring so I can get more wear out of these lovely matte pastel shades.

  3. The name is adorable! And I'm always scared that cool tone polishes will look weird on me, I'm more of a dark nailed girl I think!
