Today I'll be showing you the Ciate Beach House set. The set includes five polishes. Four cremes and one glitter. This set was purchased from Sephora.
Beach Bum is a sandy beige creme. Good formula with some minor issues with self leveling. They were fixed with top coat. I used two coats. The shade is nothing unique, but it did go well with my skin tone.
Palm Tree is a very bright lime/grass green creme. The formula was on the thin side, but it was still easy to apply and well pigmented. Self leveled and two coats for full coverage. Pics with top coat.
Raspberry Collins is a hot pink creme. No issues with formula or application. Two coats plus top coat.
Off Shore is a royal blue creme. This was very close to a one coater. Had I applied more carefully, it would have been. Self leveled completely on its own. Dried the shiniest of the bunch. Photos shown are without top coat to show the shine.
Surf's Up is the glitter in the group. Consists of iridescent shards in a light base. I layered this over Off Shore, so I'm not sure what the base would look like over a lighter shade. Also the suspension base is a bit strange in this one. I would describe it as gel like. It was still easy to apply, just odd. The glitter payout isn't that great with this. I used two coats plus top coat.
Overall, I think the set is pretty nice even though it isn't original. I'm sure all these colours have dupes available. I also want to note that the bottles are minis and they don't contain mixing balls. I had to shake the crap out of them and let them sit for awhile. Please note that I didn't wear any of these to test for staining and wear time.
Thank you for sticking all the way through this! Hope you enjoyed.
