As mentioned in last week's post about the Smashbox Try It Kit Best Sellers (here), today's post is about the Ciaté 'Mini Mani Month' Advent Calendar.
Although it was intended to be used as an Advent Calendar, I received it as a Christmas present and it is absolutely wonderful. I've been opening a door each day in January instead!
Each door has a lovely quote on it too.
There's certainly a nail colour to suit everyone whether you like neutrals, brights, sparkly or metallic - Ciaté has you covered!
The names of each one are listed below - there's no number 9 as it was the nail file that day.
Day 1- Mini Nail Varnish "Heirloom"
Day 2 - Mini Nail Varnish "Check Mate"
Day 3 - Mini Nail Varnish "Pom Pom"
Day 4 - Mini Nail Varnish "Cutie Pie"
Day 5 - Mini Nail Treatment; Nail Illuminator "Bloom Boost"
Day 6 - Mini Nail Varnish "Snow Globe"
Day 7- Mini Nail Varnish "Ahoy Sailor"
Day 8 - Mini Nail Topper "Chalet Chic" (iridescent white glitter)
Day 9 - Mini Glass Nail File
Day 10 - Mini Nail Treatment; Overnight Nail Mask "Knight in Shining Armour"
Day 11 - Mini Nail Varnish "Life's a Peach"
Day 12 - Mini Nail Varnish "A List"
Day 13 - Mini Nail Varnish "Double Bubblegum"
Day 14 - Mini Nail Varnish "Raspberry Collins"
Day 15 - Mini Nail Varnish "Birthday Blue"
Day 16 - Mini Nail Topper "Miracle on 34th" (gold glitter)
Day 17 - Mini Nail Varnish "Shady Lady"
Day 18 - Mini Nail Varnish "Purple Rain-Bow"
Day 19 - Mini Nail Varnish "Dangerous Affair"
Day 20 - Mini Nail Treatment; Nail Strengthener "Nail Gym"
Day 21 - Mini Nail Varnish "Prima Ballerina"
Day 22 - Mini Nail Varnish "Hutch"
Day 23 - Mini Nail Varnish "Cookies & Cream"
Day 24 - Full Size Nail Varnish "Rom Com Rouge"
These are such lovely quality- the metallic ones can be a bit sheer so you may need 3 or 4 coats but otherwise you're good! There's SUCH a variety of colours here too. I think this Advent Calendar would be all you need and you'd have the perfect starter kit. I love that you get nail treatments and glitters as well as a nail file- much more exciting than just nail varnishes (although I'd still be pleased!) They've thought of everything!
I was so pleased to receive this and it is definitely one of my favourite presents.
Do you use Ciaté? What are your thoughts on them?
Leave me a comment if you'd like!
They've started producing make up now too so I need to get my hands on some soon.
Thanks for reading, next week will either be an E.L.F Haul or a Gerard Cosmetics Haul.
I haven't decided yet! So make sure you pop back for that.
Speak to you soon,
