Advent calendars are everywhere at the moment, almost every brand has one. Today I'm showing you a very pretty and budget-friendly calendar by Essence!
The calendar looks very cheery and happy with the pink-purple packaging. There is a Christmassy, snowy village printed on front and there are 24 little doors to open every day of December until Christmas. All of the tiny doors have a cute little text. Some say things like "good morning, sweetheart" and there are a lot of doors that have quotes about nail polish.
But what's in the calendar? This calendar is actually all about the nails! It contains:
- 15 mini nail polishes
- 5 top coats
- 2 mini nail files
- metallic nail stickers
- a super cute mini cosmetic bag
So yes, that is quite a lot! I don't even think the nail polishes are that mini, they are all 5ml!
These are my favorite polishes from the calendar, it was very hard to pick because there are a lot of different colors and they are all incredibly beautiful. There are some bright reds, metallic purples, pastel blues - a lot of variety! A big plus, because of the variety everyone will find shades that they adore.
I'm also very fond of the top coats, my favorites are a matte glitter top coat and one with a snowflake effect. Really cool!
I don't want to spoil the whole calendar for you guys, so only a little sneak peek in this post. What fun is it otherwise to open the doors every day?
