Two Ciate Polishes for Autumn: 'Fade to Greige' and 'Vintage'

When I wrote my Top Picks for Autumn Nails post a week or so ago, I managed to miss out these two lovely polishes from Ciate. I store all of these mini paint pots separately from the rest of my nail varnishes and keep them in the advent calendar box that I got them in (a Selfridges special from last Christmas), so I do sometimes forget that I have them and they often get neglected! So I've pulled them out from under of all of that dust, and here they are to give you some autumn nail inspiration...



Fade to Greige 'is a unique combination of mauve tinged grey and a subtle beige' (according to Ciate), and is 'suitably understated for the office and yet perfect for adding a fashionable touch to any outfit'. Not a colour that I thought I'd like, but I am actually very fond of it! It's a very flattering mix of brown, grey and purple to create an aubergine shade and it really is an autumn classic. It's been my favourite nail shade to wear lately and I admire the subtle and understated element of it, but it doesn't take away for the rich and pretty tones of it.


Vintage 'is a dark, muted grey in a cream finish'. I won't lie, this greeny grey shade definitely does remind me of moss. It won't be to everybody's taste and admittedly I will always prefer prettier, girlier tones such as pinks and oranges or something with a little glitz and glamour, but this is unique and if you like dark shades and want to try something a little bit different then Vintage may tickle your pickle.


As usual with Ciate polishes, they apply fantastically well with a thick and creamy consistency and are fully opaque in two coats with a glossy finish. Chips wise they probably last 2 days without a top coat, but up to a week if using a good quality top coat!

    1. Yeah I don't think I ever would've tried them if they hadn't been in the advent calendar and I had no choice. I'm glad I got them though because I've discovered some beauties! :) xx
