Ciate Magic Carpet over A England Avalon

I bought the fabulous Ciate advent calendar and have thoroughly enjoyed opening it every day in December. On a couple of occasions, my son has asked to open it for me – and we’ve both enjoyed seeing what is behind the door.

I had hoped to wear each new one every day, but from a practical perspective, it just hasn’t been possible. And so, it’s only now that I am even getting around to wearing just the first of them.

I chose to layer Magic Carpet over A England Avalon. Magic Carpet is day 20’s polish. It is a pink glitter in a clear base. The glitters are multi-sized, from small hex glitters down to micro ones. It’s one of the three exclusive glitter shades that Ciate claims “you’ll not find anywhere else, ever”.

Unless you’re happy to do three or four coats, it’s too sheer to use on its own. But it layers wonderfully over a polish in just one thick coat.
