I wanted to take a more in depth look at the Ciaté Mini Mani Month holiday Advent calendar that I got on super mega ultra sale at the Sephora in JCPenney! You may or may not be able to still find this at your Sephora in JCP, but I believe most, if not all, of the polishes and glitter/bead/sequins toppers are still available in full size (everything in the calendar is mini size, but when you get eighteen polishes and six toppers all at once, you really don't need full sizes. I don't have a corresponding video for this post, so this one is super secret blog only!
Quick recap time! This set of eighteen mini nail polishes and six mini bottles of toppers originally retailed for $58. I got mine for $17 because sales.
I'll show you each of the colors in this set, in the order they are in the little doors (so I'm not going to go in numerical order, but left to right, up to down), as well as swatches on my nail wheels!
Next row! Again, I'm going left to right, top to bottom, so I'm starting at #10 this time.
Next row down! Starting from #2...
Now I'll move on to the top of the other side; starting at #3...
And now for the all topper row! If you were going in numerical order, I think these would be more spread out, but it is kind of odd Ciaté put four toppers in a row and then put the other two in random places.
No swatches for this row! I thought about trying out some nail art on a nail wheel, but I decided it would be better if I didn't waste them since I have no idea what I'm doing.
Final row! Starting from #7...
And that's everything included in the Ciaté Mini Mani Month Advent calendar! A lot of these colors are quite pretty, though not really unique. Then again, I have a ton of polish already, so it's getting harder and harder to find unique colors. I think this is a great set, and while I'm not sure if I would have paid $58 for it, it is more than worth the $17 I paid. If you can find this for sale at Sephora in JCPenney, I would recommend grabbing it!
Thanks for reading! <3
