This month, Marie Claire are giving away Ciate´nail polishes with their magazine, in three shades, Purple Sherbet, Jelly Bean, and Bon Bon. Marie Claire is £3.70, although WHSmith had a 2 for £6 offer on some magazines. Ciate´polishes are usually £9, and there’s also a 25% off discount code in the magazine. I picked up Purple Sherbet and Jelly Bean. Lots of magazine seem to have great freebies this month, Glamour have a choice of 3 benefit products (I got all 3!), and in others I’ve seen Body Shop mascara and eye pencils, Leighton Denny nail polish, Jemma Kidd makeup and even a free Reiss vest, I was very tempted to pick them all up, I think the cashier might have thought I was a bit crazy though!
Purple Sherbet is the first Ciate´polish I’ve tried, although I have been tempted by them for a while, especially their Caviar Manicure, and I’ve seen lots of great reviews. First of all, I love the bottles, the little bow makes them very pretty! The colour is gorgeous too, a lovely creamy lilac, although it was quite sheer, and I needed 3 coats to cover completely.
I decided to add glitter, and created a reverse gradient glitter, using Rimmel’s Disco Ball.
Tomorrow I’m going to Liverpool for a tour of Anfield. Although I’m a Sunderland supporter, I’ve been on a few stadium tours (Camp Nou, Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge) and I love seeing parts of the stadium you don’t usually see on a match day, along with the museum parts and all the silverware! I’m definitely looking forward to touching that famous ‘This is Anfield’ sign on the walk down the tunnel!
