Yes, it may seem strange to be doing an advent calendar review in January but I thought it would be fun to share the nail treats I received once all the doors had been opened.
First of all, let’s address the beautiful packaging in all its silver, London-themed glory. This is such a pretty design that I was almost sad to throw it away.
As expected, there was a fantastic array of shades but what I loved this year was that there were various other Ciaté products included, such as their nail care range which I was yet to try. There was even a handy, travel-sized glass nail file.
The only full-sized product was reserved for Christmas Eve and was this festive beauty. I have to say that I am not the biggest fan of the Ciaté bottles with their long handle and bow which looks pretty but kind of gets in the way; the mini bottles however are lovely to use!
These four shades really stood out for me; a festive berry colour, a gorgeous red (apparently it’s Olivia Palermo’s favourite), a bright coral and a deep metallic blue.
There were some interesting top coats included in the calendar too – my three favourites are this monochrome tweed-inspired bottle, a beautiful rose-gold glitter and a clear topcoat with holographic flakes.
Overall, another great advent calendar from Ciaté. I received so many lovely nail varnishes for Christmas that I am going to impose a spending ban for the foreseeable future as I am fast running out of room and cannot paint my nails any more than I already do! x
