Nails of the Week #18: Ciate in Pillow Fight

My nails went naked for almost a full week, it was a strange experience but to combat my acne issue that I had over the summer I was using some severely drying products and medication that resulted in fairly brittle nails and my over exuberance with glitter polish really didn't help with the peeling. My nails still aren't 100% but I couldn't resist the siren call of my nail polish any longer so here we are. This week I am bringing a simple manicure in one of my go to shades. This is the first time I've used this polish that I received in my September Blue Velveteen box and it is Ciate in Pillow Fight.

This color is a delicate shade of grey with a hint of lilac to it. The formula was super creamy and took two quick drying coats to apply! I think this is a beautiful shade for fall as it's a muted neutral that is incredibly glossy on the nails. I took pictures in all sorts of lights and it appears almost blue in natural light which is interesting. In person there is no doubt it is a more of purple grey though. This color reminds me of one of my favorite Essie colors Chinchilly. I haven't had the best of luck with Ciate polishes in the past in durability so fingers crossed this will hold up! I love the cute mini bottle too and it makes me believe I can actually finish this up!
