The Mani Month: Day Twenty

Ciaté really knows how to tempt a beauty lover into buying more. They made an advent calendar filled with nail polish, which honestly is the best idea ever. During the twenty four days leading up to Christmas I'll be opening up a square each day and showing you which Ciaté nail polish is hiding behind it.

A duochrome! The first one in the calendar. While I always feel like these polishes look super pretty in the bottle, I don't really wear them on the nails. I have an unopened Essie 'For the twill of it' to prove it. I did want to try this color called Starlet on my nails and was surprised at how many coats this needed. A good three was required, and it still isn't quite opaque.

I do like the dark green shade this has upon first look. When moving your hands around in the light you can see the subtle hints of purple and blue, which give the varnish great dimension. A really pretty polish, I like it.
