ciate mini mani month advent calendar

(L-R) - Cupcake Queen, Dangerous Affair, Halo, Prom Queen, Cabaret, Angel Wings, Cutie Pie

When this calendar made its first appearance in the blogosphere I knew I had to own it, being a nail polish addict I fell in love with it instantly. Waking up to a cute little polish every single day during the build up to Christmas is definitely the best start to my morning! I did have a little struggle getting hold of this at first, as it kept going in & out of stock, but eventually I snapped one up. I was filled with regret for spending so much on an advent calendar & was considering selling it, infact I didn't even open any of the doors until yesterday, but my lovely boyfriend has given me the money for it as a treat! (thank you Dom) ♡

I'm going to do a post each week showing the polishes that have been included so far, so this is week one! I can't believe how pretty these little paint pots are & the adorable black ribbon bow is the perfect touch. I have used Ciaté before & even though it was a little scary paying almost £40, I knew that it was completely worth it, as they're high quality. Plus a full sized bottle retails for £9 & this set includes 24, although they aren't full size it prices them at less than £2 a bottle & I never tend to use up an entire bottle anyway.

December 1st: 'Cupcake Queen' - Firstly, cute name! Bright Barbie pink, with blue iridescent running through.  
December 2nd: 'Dangerous Affair' - A beautiful burgundy red wine shade, currently wearing this on my nails.
December 3rd: 'Halo' - A pearlescent polish with a rainbow of holographic shimmers running through.
December 4th: 'Prom Queen' - Silver, pink & dark blue caviar pearls with specks of glitter mixed in.
December 5th: 'Cabaret' - A creamy purple, with undertones of pink. 
December 6th: 'Angel Wings' - Quite similar to Halo, a pretty pearl finish without the shimmer. 
December 7th: 'Cutie Pie' - Milky, soft pink, ideal for french manicures.

I'm really struggling to stop myself open the remaining doors, I'm so impressed with this product & I can't wait to see what beauty advent calendars are available next year! 

Which is your favourite shade so far? I am torn between Dangerous Affair & Halo!
