The holidays are over, but I definitely had a blast opening up this 12 Days of Essie calendar ($68) from Loose Button*! It's a little different from last year's Advent calendar, but still super fun! I adore advent calendars (and Essie polishes) -- it's a little surprise everyday to get you into the holiday spirit.
Here are all the polishes in the calendar:
- Mint Candy Apple
- Miss Fancy Pants
- Head Mistress
- Imported Bubbly
- Skirting The Issue
- Dive Bar
- Hors d’Oeuvres
- Lots of Lux
- So Haute! Sleek Stick nail appliques
- Oh My Gold! Sleek Stick nail appliques
- Apricot Cuticle Oil
If you follow me on Instagram (or Twitter) then you've already seen these polishes because I tried to snap a photo every day. I loved all the polishes, but there were a few that stood out as favourites. Mint Candy Apple is one of my all-time Essie favourites. The two polishes from the new "Encrusted" collection, Hors d'Oeuvres (gold microglitter with chunky silver glitter) and Lots of Lux (blue and silver microglitter with a gritty matte finish), are stunning beauties. Stylenomics is a pretty deep green colour that looks so much better on than in the bottle. Miss Fancy Pants is a simple greige shade that works for any occasion. Also loving the Apricot Cuticle Oil! It was much-needed after 12 days of consecutive polish changes.
Did you open an Advent calendar this year? Let me know which one! x
Ps, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Pps, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :)
