How are you? ♥
It's not a big secret I'm such a child at heart - that's why, even at the age of 22, I can't help but want an advent calendar. This year, though, I wanted something different.
What do I mean by different?
Ciaté's Mini Mani Month calendar ♥
I had seen this beauty in some blogs and Instagram accounts and was dreaming about it - but couldn't even dream of actually buying it, before my mom said she would get one for me. Needless to say, I was over the moon. Thanks again, mom, it's amazing! Love you ♥
For those who don't know, Mini Mani Month is an amazing calendar, featuring 20 mini bottles of Ciaté polishes and 4 bottles or caviar beads. 3 of the nail polishes are exclusively for these calendars, which I think is super exciting. You can imagine how many manicures these all make possible to create.
I love the design of the calendar very much, the abstract geometric pattern is cool enough for a couture sweater, and the colorful lids make it fun (though maybe too easy) to find each day's polish. I also love the way they've printed fun facts, quotes and such on the inside of every lid.
I only got this yesterday, so I had 10 days' work to do with the calendar. The mini bottles are exactly that - mini. But I'm confident that I can do many manicures with each before the polish runs out.
A closer look to the first caviar bead bottle to pop out. This one is called Prom Queen, and it has blue, pink/purple and silvery beads and hexagon glitter to it. I can't wait to see the other three!
After freeing the first ten bottles from their little "prisons", I took the time to admire the fun shades I got.
There's the caviar beads, two different shades of white, pink (which doesn't show here), dark red, purple....
...baby pink, gray, bright red, and a curious glittery shade. I wonder what tomorrow might bring?
So here you have it - a spoiled girl's calendar, a nail enthusiast must-have, and the perfect treat for a blogger in shopping ban to make it through this month without shopping. :D I'm super excited I finally got this, and I had to share this with you right away, even though I have a ton of things to post for you that should come before this... Oh well.
So, what do you think? Yay or nay? And, if you have an advent calendar, what kind is it? Or, if you don't what is the best one you ever had (e.g. your childhood's favorite Christmas calendar)? Share your thoughts and memories in the comments! ♥
I wish a nice week to you all, I still have lots of things to do before I can have the holiday break from school - and I will let you know more later this week about that. But now, it's time for me to catch the bus and go to school!
Blog ya later,
