I love the colour range of the paint pots but they can sometimes apply badly so very thin layers needed, i couldnt ever get a nice application on my longer nails. Now ive got shorter nails its better. It does chip easy so i use a chip ressistant top coat to prevent the chipping. The darker shades are very pigmented and only need one coat.

Great string colour with good coverage from only one coat. Can chip easily so use two coats and too up regularly. Love the site packaging. The PomPom shade is a lovely pinky red. Even better these are five free so do not have 5 toxic ingredients there most nail polishes do. I will definitely be trying another colour.

I had this as a gift for Christmas, and I do like this nail polish, and it came with the glitter pot which was nice. It's a nice product, but I would not buy it myself as I don't think it's worth £6 as that is pricey for a nail polish.

I had the Ciate advent calender so I am now the proud owner of 24 mini versions of these polishes. I think they're great and come in so many lovely colours. I love the brushes in these polishes, I have tiny nails and these brushes make it really easy to paint my nails with no mess. I did find they chipped quite quickly and usually needed two coats but still lovely.

I have a few of these colours and the UV top coat that was available summer 2015, I really love the colours available. I have an orange colour, Pillow Fight and Iced Frappe, and I love them all. They last really well, it takes two coats to get a smooth finish and opaque colour. When used with a top coat they don't chip.

Being a hairdresser my nails constantly chip and I'm always on the look out for a 'decent' nail vanish. I purchased a set on offer from to max for a great price. When applying i found the consistency of the paint to be very watery and thin. After e applying the colour the next day at work my nails had chipped. Unfortunately the brand did not live up to expectations.

I have asked for one of these for christmas in the pink sparkle colour 'Doll House' as i am always using my nans when i'm at hers, I love the range of colours they come in, they are long lasting, the paint pot is very cute , they don't chip, and go on the nail plate very smoothly! I wish we could use them in the beauty salon i work in :( i love them and recommend!

Purchased in Hopscotch which is a neon orange. I've always found these varnishes to be a little watery, and a minimum of 3 coats is needed to get a intense vibrant colour. Smooth application and long lasting. Not cheap at £9.00 but it does not chip as quickly as some other more luxury expensive brands, a very understated varnish. Great selection of colours and finishes if you buy online.

The question 'Would you buy again?' is quite ironic for me because yes, I have bought it again, and again, and again! The colour is great! It's very strong and there are so many to choose from! One coat is enough to look good although two coats gives you the WOW factor. The consistency is great and the brush fits perfectly to the shape of my cuticles. ~R~

Such an amazing polish. The bottle is really easy to handle the brush is perfectly shaped it covers nearly all the nail in one sweep. One coat is enough to get great coverage. The packaging is super cute and girly. They have a rather nice smell to them as well.

I don't give 5/5 because that is perfection and I don't think it exists yet but this nail polish is simply amazing. I got this as a gift and I was so, so surprised with the beautiful finish... It is very easy to apply (gorgeous user friendly brush), one coat is enough and it dries quickly and completely. Apart, the little bow is simply cute! Worth try it once at least!
