Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a great day full of fireworks.


Recently, I became a fan of Ciate polishes.
This is Hopscotch and for some reason, I cannot find it on their website. It's either sold out or discontinued. Since I did a thorough review of Ciate in Plastic Fantastic, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color and I have to say it's slightly brighter in person.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the width and length is the same. The only difference is that OPI is straight at the tip, whereas, it's slightly curved on the Ciate brush.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Ciate in Hopscotch, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love the brush with the curve tip. It makes it easy to paint around the cuticles. Not only that with the wide width, it makes it easy and quick to paint each nails. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. I can go at my speed and not worry about the polish getting thicker as I paint. It goes on smoothly, and there's no streaking and bubbles. Third, the color is gorgeous. It's a great summer color! It's bright and really stands out. Lastly, I noticed shrinkage on the third day. It's very minimal. You really cannot see it unless you examine the nails closely. With that said, I noticed one chip on the right index finger on the fourth day. Other than that, I didn't see any chipping.

Would repurchase: Yes.
