Who needs a chocolate advent calendar when you can have one filled with nail polishes? I say this Ciaté version is way more exciting. It features a whole bunch of colours in mini sizes—which makes tons of sense, really, because when do you ever finish a bottle of nail polish?—along with little nail art doodads to decorate to your heart's content.
With the outer packaging, there are two colour schemes floating around. You'll find this one at Sephora:
The blue is at Nordstrom and in-store at Hudson's Bay:
Inside, the thing opens up into a fun calendar with little doors:
What's inside the sets is basically the same, although there may be minor variances by retailer. Here's what's in the Sephora one:
- 18 miniature Ciaté Paint Pots Nail Polishes
- 2 miniature Ciaté Caviar Luxe blends
- 2 Ciaté Caviar Pearls Pots
- 1 Ciaté Glitter Pot
- 1 Ciaté Sequin Pot
- 1 Funnel
And here are the polishes:
I really love the colours here as they're all so bright and happy! The shades include Snow Globe, Boudoir, Hoopla, Hopscotch, Sugar Plum, Fit For A Queen, Candy Floss, Amazing Gracie, Pepperminty, Encore!, Starlet, Chinchilla, Members Only, Play Date, Ivory Queen, Main Stage, Pillow Fight and Tweed and Tails.
The Caviar Luxe comes in Metallic Pearls Smoulder (silver) and Metallic Pearls Lustre (gold), while the Caviar Pearls come in Cupids Arrow and Midnight in Manhattan. The Glitter shade is Twinkle Toes and the Sequins are Dallas Dolly.
You get all of this—a US$168.00/C$216.00 value—for US$58.00/C$69.00. Are you in?
