Ciaté London Nail Polish in Golden Sands Review & Swatches

By Monday, September 07, 2015 , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am going to review Ciaté London Nail Polish in Golden Sands. Let see how it fairs out.

Product Description – Ciaté London Golden Sands Nail Polish. A deep shade of taupe with a natural glimmer, just right for a holiday in the sun. Perfect for all skin tones, as part of The Complexion Collection.

Price - 11 USD approx.

Performance: I simply adore the packaging of Ciaté London paint pots. The shape of the bottle is so unique and that bow is like icing on the cake. Ciate London describes Golden Sands as a taupe shade but I feel it is more a dusty pink nude shade. Golden Sands is a part of The Complexion Collection and has golden shimmer in it. Texture wise they are creamy, smooth and apply like a dream on your nails. Nicely pigmented but two coats are needed for the perfect look. 

Brush looks like a standard nail polish brush round and cut straight at the top. But what makes it different from others is its long handle which gives you nice grip and more control and secondly the brush fans out nicely on application. In result you get streak free finish. Staying power is decent as well. It stayed on nicely for three days with slight fading around the edges and it was only by the end of the fifth day that it really started chipping. I for sure will be checking out other shades from this range.

The Good:
  • Cute Packaging
  • Nicely Pigmented
  • Smooth and Glossy finish
  • Decent staying power
  • Lovely shade range
  • Nice brush
  • Doesn't streak
  • Quantity
The Bad:
  • Pricey
  • Availability
