NOTD: Ciaté Paint Pot in Paper Doll

Two coats of Ciaté Paint Pot in Paper Doll from the Dolls House Collection. Porcelain Matte White.

This color right here? Ob-sessed {and not just because I received so. many. compliments. while wearing}.

Paper Doll is basically the best white polish I have ever used. In a way, the brightness of it makes it look as if you painted your nails with White-Out; yet it manages to be ridiculously chic and so attention-commanding. The formula is amazing. Typically, pastels and white polishes are an absolute pain to work with - streaky, sheer...Paper Doll doesn't suffer from any of that. The strokes are even and opaque; and the dry time is literally 45 seconds or less. This is the white polish to buy.

A note about porcelain finish: Porcelain finish is, essentially, a matte finish {which is how I am wearing Paper Doll here}. The problem with mattes is that, without the protection of a top coat, they do tend to chip very easily. If that's an issue for you, I recommend using a top coat to make this shade last longer. Yes, a top coat will do away with the unique matte finish; but it still leaves you with a gorgeous glossy white look.
