It's all about the advent right now. I'm no stranger to these, as you may know! I recently did a first impressions look at the Liberty London Advent Calendar , and am also giving away a Rituals Exclusive Advent Calendar too.
Brands are falling over themselves to bring us their version of the countdown to Christmas, and I'll unashamedly get excited along with them.
So, nail polish!
CIATE GIFT IDEAS
I'm a big fan of Ciate as a nail polish brand. They have a huge range of colours, and the formula sets really well with me. I'm also a fiend for cute packaging, and those little black bows have me on my knees.

Some other good info to note about Ciate London is also the fact that all of their formulas are:
I have two Ciate favourites in full size, that I can't live without.
They are 'Cookies and Cream', a soft, muted, nude to taupe shade with a pink undertone. I always find it hard to track down nudes which don't look too yellow ot brown, but this is so pretty!
The other is 'Antique Brooch', a gold and delicate pink mix of fine glitter polish, with larger chunks of gold disc scattered throughout. At first I thought the payoff of this would only favour it best as a top coat, however this is not the case. I wear it on its own most days solo, as the coverage owns itself perfectly! It does look super as an accent nail alongside 'Cookies and Cream' though.
At £50 this is actually one of the lower end price point for premium brand advent calendars this year, and in my opinion is very generous at that! Full size pots of Ciate come in at £12 each, and minis at £6, so already in minis alone for this calendar, you've saved £64, and that's before adding on the full size, nail topper, and whatever the limited edition surprise is (I can't look...I don't want to ruin it...).
So what do you think of this years offerings of an advent from Ciate London? If you don't mind knowing the shades in advance, you can check the list of offerings here.
