Essence - Advent Calendar

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?

Essence - Advent Calender (€24,99)

 I honestly can say that if you like nail polish and Christmas, you will need this calendar. You get 20 nail polishes, 2 files, metallic nail stickers and a mini cosmetic bag for only €24,99!
In Belgium you can even find it at 'Kruidvat' for only €19,99.

It's really cool to get a beauty surprise every day, with a nice quote. I'm very pleased with this advent calendar, stunning colors of the nail polishes and well... it's an advent calendar = little presents every day! 'nough said!

Have you ever gotten a beauty advent calendar? 

Love, Rani
