Ciate Mini Mani Advent Calendar

Yay! It's here! I finally gave in and got a beauty advent calendar after lusting after pretty much all of them. The Benefit one looked great but sold out instantly (grr) while the Boots one, although cheaper, can't seem to stay on the shelves. I had my heart set on the Ciate one and luckily, had a voucher (thanks again Karen!) for Cloud 10 Beauty, which still had it in stock (HERE). Phew.

It arrived this morning and I am all excited with the prospect of 24 days worth of surprise nail polishes! Inside, there are 19 mini 5ml polishes, 2 exclusive mini caviar blends 10g, 2 mini glitter/sequins 5g and 1 full size polish 13.5ml. If Cloud 10 sells out, you can also find it on Beauty Features (HERE), both for €55.00 or on Beauty Emporium (HERE) for €49.99.

I'm also intrigued by The Body Shop advent calendar, which although more pricey at €99.00, is every beauty fanatics dream.


What do you make of the beauty advent calendar craze? Are you as enthralled as myself or would you be just as happy with a Cadburys one?

  3. You picked my top 2 advent calendars! I have been trying to make more of an effort with my nails so would just love the Ciate calendar, the body shop one is amazing but very very pricey.

    1. It is pricey alright, but there's some great products in there, I'd say it'd be worth it!

    1. The boots one is pretty reasonable if you'd be interested in that one?
