The Spring/Summer 2014 Ciate London nail polish collection is here and it's prettier than we imagined. This week I got my hands on the Dolls House Collection - a £18 set inspired by Alexander Wang, Prada and porcelain dolls - and fell in love instantly.

If you're looking for a matte polish to try this season then look no further. It's super-quick drying, goes on like a dream and although the pale pastel colours means three or four coats there's no gloopy stickiness that you sometimes get with a normal high-shine polish.

I'm not the girliest of girls and wasn't keen on the Poppet (lavender) or Baby Doll (pink) in the bottle. However, once applied even I have to admit they did look cute.

I'm hooked on Doll Face nude and the Paper Doll white goes on easier and provides far more coverage than any other white polish I've tried to date... And trust me, I've tried a lot!
