NOTD: CIATE PAINT POTS APPLES & CUSTARD 056

Apples & Custard must be my favourite Ciate nail polish. It is similar to Barry M Mint Green , but it is much darker and more green.  It is a beautiful shade and only needs 1 generous or 2 thin coats to provide a perfect, opaque and glossy finish. It is streak free and dries quite fast. I am very impressed with it! If you are looking for a perfect Mint Green that doesn't look blue, you won't be disappointed with this one!  I noticed that in dark light it looks much darker, but in daylight it is definitely a mint green colour. I mentioned how much I love the bottle design in my previous reviews, but I just can't stop admiring the cute bow and the shape- gorgeous!

EDIT: On the picture above I used fake nails that were white and I think it affected the colour and with one coat the green looked much lighter than on my natural nails. I am adding pictures of the nail polish on white paper so you can see how it looks like, also a close up of the polish on my natural nail.
As you can see it depends on the light. The day I painted my nails with Apples and Custard for the first time it was very bright and the colour looked much lighter to me.

  1. Ooh this looks lovely, I've never seen this polish before but I love mint greens on the nails, especially ones that lean more green than blue!

    1. I haven't found an exact match yet in one bottle, but I mixed Barry M Blue Moon and Mint Green and it looks the same as MCA :)

    1. Especially if it only needs one coat. You can use a fast drying top coat and it will dry even quicker :)

  13. When looking at the bottle on Ciate website I thought this was gonna be a rather 'army' toned green. Dammit! x
