Dangerous Affair

How perfect is this nail polish for Autumn/Winter?

This 'Dangerous Affair' polish by Ciate came with the November issue of Marie Claire UK. Seeing as it's still October, I figured some of you might still be able to get your hands on the magazine and score yourselves this gorgeous polish - normally worth around £10 I believe!

Ciate nail polishes have one of the best formulations I've ever tried - in the same league as O.P.I in my opinion! The polishes are super smooth, opaque and very shiny, everything you'd want in a nail polish :) There are 2 shades to choose from, this one and a bright red (a la Mary-Kate Olsen). I opted for this darker one because it's ever-so-slightly more subtle, and perfect for winter nights.

The colour looks different in different lighting. As you can see here, it looks like a brighter shade of red in direct lighting, and more of a vampy dark burgundy red in the shade. Lovely.

So if you're at all interested in this nail polish, or have been looking for a great red for Autumn/Winter, and the November issue of Marie Claire UK is still on the shelves, go grab yourself one (or two!) - you won't regret it, promise :)
