NOTD - Ciaté Nail Polish in Ferris Wheel and Mavala Nail Polish in Pure Diamond

Hello Lovelies,

Today I have a NOTD Post for you and my NOTD is Ciaté Nail Polish in Ferris Wheel with Mavala Nail Polish in 213 Pure Diamond on the tips. The Ciaté Nail Polish was one of the nail polishes that was in my Ciaté Mini Mani Advent Calendar and it is a gorgeous baby blue colour. The Mavala Nail Polish was in my Boots Beauty Advent Calendar and is a lovely silver holographic glittery nail polish.

I had seen photos on Blogs and Instagram of nails that have been painted to have this gradient glitter effect and I loved how it looked, so I thought I would give it a go and it was really easy to do. First I painted my nails with a base coat of Ciaté Underwear Base Coat, followed by two coats of the Ciaté Nail Polish, which applied really nicely. Then I put a thick line of the Mavala Nail Polish on the tips and left it for a few seconds before gently pulling it down my nail a bit. I used two coats of the Mavala Nail Polish because I wanted them to be really sparkly. I then applied a coat of Ciaté Speed Coat Top Coat, which left them really shiny.

I love the gradient glitter effect and I think this colour combination is gorgeous and it reminds me of winter, ice and frost, although not sure if that is just me? I can’t wait to try this effect out with some different nail polish combinations.

Have you tried a this nail effect? What colour combinations do you like?

Thanks for reading :)
