Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Advent Calendar 2014 Swatch + Review

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a review of a holiday favorite. I bought this set last year as well and loved it. So this set had a lot to live up to and it definitely did! The set includes 17 polishes (0.16 oz), 5 textured polishes, one exclusive full size Paint Pot (0.4 oz) and one set of festive nail transfers. The brushes in these are very easy to work with. There are 3 different variations that you could get when you purchase the Advent Calendar. So you may or may not get the one below. I hope you do because I loved it.

Day 1
'Kiss Chase' is a bright pink. The formula is smooth, self leveling, and shiny. The polish isn't completely opaque but still beautiful. This is two coats with no top coat.

Day 2
'Cha Cha Cha' is a juicy neon orange polish. The polish isn't completely opaque but still beautiful. The formula dries to a semi-matte finish. This is three coats with no top coat. 

Day 3:
'Meet Me In Mayfair' is a clear polish with black, silver, yellow rectangular glitter. This is one coat on top on 'Loop the Loop' as a base.

Day 4:
‘Girl with pearl’ on top of ‘Ivory Queen’ bottle comes with a nice variety of different pearl sizes.
