I don’t really have a style icon but whenever the question comes up (and it does, a lot) my default answer is usually Olivia Palermo. Ever since my addiction to ‘The City’ I’ve found her style incredible sophisticated and chic. She just seems to know what she likes and it gives her this calm confidence that doesn’t seem too over the top. She’s overlapped into the beauty world on quite a few occasions and this time round it’s with nails.

Ciate and Olivia Palermo (their guest creative director) have collaborated to release her debut nail collection. This is the first of four collections to launch and they’ve set the bar pretty high with this one; 3 beautiful shades that fit perfectly with Olivia’s style.

Olivia’s favourite of the 3 is ‘Hutch’ and is apparently her “go to red”. The shade is a classic, sophisticated red and is inspired by and named after her mother. The shade I’m wearing is ‘Nantucket’ which is the shade Olivia refers to as her “haute vacation red”. It has a softer, coral tint to it that works perfectly in the summer months. ‘Sundays’ was created to be an “off duty nude”, a soft powder pink hue to wear on the weekends.

Ciate polishes are always great quality and these polishes also come in exclusive boxed up packaging with Olivia’s own personal touch. This does, however, crank up the price to £17 compared to £9 for their most basic polish. I think it’s a nice collaboration, but I think these shades in particular can also be found elsewhere. What do you think of the collaboration? It’s out now so have a little peak next time you’re near a Ciate stand.

    I love these nail polish shades and the packaging is beautiful but I think they are a bit overpriced. x

    I love her and the colours are so pretty! Only the price tag that is keeping me from snapping them all up…

    Blimey that’s quite pricey! The colour you’re wearing is gorgeous and Olivia has an amazing style, but definitely some over-charging on Ciate’s part.

    The colours are really lovely, but I’m going to echo you and the other commenters here and say these are far too overpriced!

    These are gorgeous shades and I love this collaboration, but it’s definitely a bit too pricey in comparison to the price of Ciate’s regular line. Nantucket is an especially beautiful shade though.

    All three are lovely shades and I really like the gold-accented packaging, but they’re definitely too pricey for me to pick them up!

    would make a lovely gift, but not a purchase I would make for myself. Gorgeous colours though :)


  15. Kat Horrocks says:

    Wow! These are beautiful colours, and such lovely packaging. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from a Ciate & Olivia Palermo collab!

    although these colours are gorgeous £17 for a nail polish?! Hope they’re worth it!! xx

  18. Rebecca says:

    Love the shades – especially the one you’re wearing! It’s quite a big price hike though!


  19. Julia Speaks says:

    The nude nail polish is so pretty! However I do think that these colours are quite common, and you can find them in many different brands as well. I’ve never tried Ciate though, I’ll have to one day!

    Lovely shades :)

  22. I love the light pink but can’t imagine paying that much for a polish!


  23. Georgina Fox says:

    Nantucket is definitely nice – the others… meh not so much. The price hike is cheeky too. And I think the packaging looks a little dated. I’ll give it a miss.



  24. catherine ♡ says:

    I love Olivia too! Nantucket looks like an absolutely beautiful shade x


  25. Totally agreed, these colors arent special enough to justify the higher price tag.

  28. Martha Jane says:

    I do love the packaging, but it is unnecessarily pricey for what’s literally just a name on a bottle!

    I like the color red :) However for the price, I think I can find some for a cheaper price 😀
