Sweet Simplicity: Ciate Angel Wings

Like this polish, I'm going to keep this post simple.  I love how clean a pearl white polish looks, whether alone or as a base for something more special.  The problem is finding one that is flattering and doesn't leave a ton of brush strokes.

Luckily, Jackie gifted me a mini Ciate she had, and it fits those criteria well!  Ciate Angel Wings is  a pearl white polish, that slightly leans to the lightest possible hint of pink imaginable at certain angles (it may be the natural nail underneath doing that).

I think this is a great palette cleanser before the onset of all the gorgeous fall colors and collections that are coming out. What do you think?

I used 3 coats and no topcoat.  After I was done, I remembered I should have used a matte top coat underneath coats to further minimize any brushstrokes.  I decided to leave well enough alone, since I might do a skittlette later and it wasn't too bad.  It's also worth noting that this polish has a great formula...extremely easy to work with.

If you want Angel Wings for yourself, it's available online at Nordstrom and Sephora.

  5. Pearl finishes are underrated as people tend to shy away from frosts. This one is quite pretty!
