Swatch: Ciate - Mini Mani Month Day 1 - Sundance

Colours: Teal Blue and Golden Yellow steel balls with hex shaped glitter, in silver and orange.

I actually don't really like the hex glitters, they just don't really work with the balls. They stick to the sides of the bottle making them difficult to get out, they gather in the lid too. Struggle to stick to the nail as well because of the shape of the balls getting in the way. The blue and yellow work well together though.
