Mani Monday – Ciaté Birthday Blue

Today I wanted to share an electric blue shade from Ciaté. Birthday Blue is described as a ‘chrome blue’, with an almost foil-like finish.

I first wore this on my toes a few weeks ago and loved it so much that I fancied it on my fingernails too!

I decided to try out another Ciaté nail product from my advent calendar and opted for Bloom Boost as a base coat. This claims to illuminate and brighten nails and leave nails looking healthier. I like the fact this can be worn alone on bare nails or as a base coat and it has really good reviews too.

After applying the Bloom Boost, I needed two layers of Birthday Blue and I was really impressed at how bold the colour stays and the glossy finish it gives.

I also used my Calvin Klein Splendid Glaze top coat to help things last a little longer.

Birthday Blue is definitely one of my new favourite shades! x

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)

    Wow, love that colour! I have one very similar to this but it’s a little more shimmery. Bold!
