Ciaté Mini Mani Month Round Up!




I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day yesterday. I sure did. However today has been a lot more relaxed so I figured it was a much better time to give the Ciaté Advent Calender a final review.

I received a great range of colours in this set that I probably wouldn't of picked up otherwise. I think that is what makes the calender so great - you get to try new things and if you don't like them, you only have a small pot to use anyways. If you are a nail varnish addict, this is a guaranteed pleaser. Ciaté is a fabulous make of polish that is really great quality.

My favourite colours were Twilight 072, Ladylike Luxe 059, Cookies and Cream 058 and Halo 089.

My least favourite were probably Mojito 019, Headliner 066, Big Yellow Taxi 074 but there were a lot more great ones to outset these few.

I think that over all it was definitely worth the money to purchase this calender. It gave me a new beauty product every day that I could share and discuss with my readers. It also gave me a few great nail art ideas a long the way which is definitely a bonus! At £38, this came to around the price of 3 large polishes so to try a bit of everything for such a low price seems reasonable to me :) After all I am a beauty lover!

I know that there were many other beauty calenders released this year. Next year I may try one that has various products in rather than a collection of one type. If anyone has any suggestions as to which others were particularly good this year, let me know in the comments below :)

I've had an absolutely wonderful day and received some gorgeous presents from the people closest to me. I want to take a moment to thank them all so much. They are amazing and I don't know what I would do without them.

My next thank you goes to you guys, for reading my blog over the past year and a bit. You spur me on and encourage me to fulfil my dreams. I couldn't do any of it without you and you have no idea how much it means to me that you would want to read my blog. So thank you.

I hope you have all had a wonderful, merry day that has been filled with laughter and cheer. It's a time of year where you really treasure what you have and for me, I have definitely realised how lucky I am.

Have a lovely rest of Christmas and I'll talk to you tomorrow!

Ciaté Advent Calender - Door 24!



The last day of my Mini Mani Advent Calender has arrived! It's come around so quickly. I don't know what I'm going to do when I wake up in the morning with no door to open tomorrow. We finish the calender on the bang, with a lovely, sparkly, glitter red polish which remains the final exclusive polish to this set. Enchanted rose would look really lovely on it's own, as shown above. However if you love the look of a sparkly red nail but don't want to go out and buy a polish specifically, anyone who's got this calender can simply paint their nails red and then layer this on top.

What a gorgeous festive colour to end with. If I have the time I might do a 'present' nail art design on all of my nails. I'll paint the base white, and then layer this on top. I'll then use my black nail art pen to draw ribbons and bows on top, followed by a gorgeous glossy Seche Vite top coat :)

A round up of all the polishes I received and whether I think it was worth the money will be up on the blog later today :) Until then, enjoy Christmas eve and don't forget to watch home alone at 2:50 on Channel 4!

Ciaté Advent Calender - Door 23



Mojito is a vibrent lime green. It reminds me exactly of a polish that came out with the OPI Shrek Collection. A lot of people raved about this looking very nice on the nail but I'm not to sure I'm such a fan myself. It's very bright, fresh and spring like but this lime green definitely wouldn't compliment my skin tone. I could maybe get some use out of it if I used it to create nail art but it's safe to say it's not one of my favourites.

With one more polish left to go, I'm wondering what colour I haven't receieved!? It's an exclusive polish to this set so it's anyones guess.
