I can’t believe that I’ve opened the final door on my Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar today – seriously, where has the time gone?!
This has certainly made the countdown to Christmas so much fun and provided me with ENDLESS nail inspiration!
Here are the final set of nail products that where hidden behind days 12-24’s doors…
Day 12: Let it snow
This is a super sparkly loose holo glitter, which is to be sprinkled over a wet nail polish. A clear top coat helps to secure the glitter in place and it doesn’t dull the effect at all.

Day 13: Mineral positivity
This is a beautiful midnight black with a twist as it’s speckled with a galaxy of golden-green glitter, which completely uplifts the look! It is quite a unique polish too, as it has a rough texture when applied to the nails.
I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.
Day 14: Ladylike luxe
This nail polish certainly lives up to its name because it is a really decadent shimmering gold. It feels super glam and it has just the right amount of sparkle to be caught in the light. Two words: Liquid silk!
Style is a way to say who you are without speaking.
Day 15: Slumber party
This is another loose micro-glitter featuring iridescent grey and golden sparkles, which is quite galactic! The glitter is ultra fine, so I would use a dry brush to dab the glitter on the top of the nails, using a different polish as a base.
The best colour in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you.
Day 16: Big yellow taxi
This is a high fashion bold yellow with a crème finish to make a real statement. The polish would brighten up any outfit and perfectly compliment summer wardrobes!
If you’re feeling blue, try painting yourself another colour.
Day 17: Starlet
This is a spectacular purple and blue two-toner shimmer with a golden pearlised finish. I don’t believe that any photos will ever do it justice but trust me, it is truly magical.
Delete the negative; accentuate the positive.
Day 18: Tinsel trail
This bottle contains a selection of diamond-shaped sequin confetti in a mixture of blues and holographic silvers. This literally looks like shredded tinsel, I’m hoping that it is equally impressive once applied to the nails.
The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.
Day 19: Yule rules
This is a beautiful turquoise glitter polish with a lot of versatility, so I’m really looking forward to experimenting with different looks and shades, though it’s also quite festive!
Live your everyday extraordinary!
Day 20: Frozen daydream
As you can see, this is a striking electric blue but – you guessed it – it’s another loose glitter! I love how sparkly these are when they catch the light, making them perfect for the party season.

Day 21: Fair isle style
These nail transfers are the ultimate accessory for festive-inspired nail creations.
And now, I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.
Day 22: Cream soda
Don’t be fooled by the photograph, this is one of my favourite shades from the entire Ciaté calendar. It’s a subtle, creamy grey, providing an on-trend look that is super wearable!
I don’t do fashion; I AM fashion.
Day 23: Play date
This colour is as fun as it sounds! It’s a bold pop pink with a playful coral edge, making it a punchy shade that is an instant classic. This will definitely be used in my summer nail polish rotation.
When in doubt, wear red.

Last, but by no means least…
Day 24: Celestial
I was so pleased to find a full-sized Ciaté nail polish hiding behind Day 24 and, even better, it’s an explosion of sparkles! It is a beautiful silver holographic glitter polish with a subtle shimmer, I think it will look fabulous over any shade.
Have a colourful Holiday season! Love Ciaté xoxo
Happy Christmas Eve!
