I’m in the holiday spirit thanks to this exclusive Holiday Advent Calendar 12 Days of Essie from Loose Button. It was sold out in only a few short days, it features 12 full size Essie Nail Polishes and Nail Appliques and was available to Canadians only. It retails for only $68, but has a retail value at over $130. I’ve never been one to control myself with advent calendars, when I was little I would pull back all the door and eat all the chocolate within the first day, I would then re-fold all the doors back over so my parents wouldn’t know. When I first opened this 12 Days of Essie from Loose Button, it took everything I got not to open all the door to see what’s inside right away. I guess it helps that I’m blogging all about it, you can follow my daily openings on Instagram, helps me not to cheat. I started on December 13th, 2013 so it’s the 12 days before Christmas.
On the first day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Nail Applique in So Haute. It features little gold dots that are raised up as well as textured clear dots in between the rows of gold over top of a crimson red shade.
On the second day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Nail Polish in Lots of Lux. It features a magnificent, shimmering blue with a fine matte finish.
On the third day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Nail Polish in Miss Fancy Pants. It features an elegant and chic taupe-y grey shade, the perfect neutral if you ask me?
On the forth day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Nail Polish in Dive Bar. It gives the nails a sultry look with its intense blackest aquatic green shade.
On the fifth day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil. This natural oil with provide nourishing moisture for smoother, softer, supple cuticles, while instantly refreshing and revitalizing them.
On the sixth day of Christmas Loose Button gave to me, Essie Nail Polish in Stylenomics. This is a deep, opulent green that’s right on the money hehe.
