Ciaté Mini Mani Advent Calendar from TK Maxx 2014

There seems to have been some chatter about the TK Maxx deal offering the Ciate Mini Mani Advent calendars at £19.99 this year. They seem to have sold out online but were still readily available in my local shops in Northern Ireland. There were a choice of the blue pattered version, red patterned and plain red version. After much deliberating over the colours and accessories as shown on the back I went with the blue which I think may have been their 2013 Advent Calendar. I have added some photos below to show what it looks like inside and to reveal the secret nail polish which I assume is the same in all of the blue patterned versions. I really wanted to know what it was before I bought it but overall I'm pleased enough with what it turned out to be.

The mystery secret full size paint pot is a pink glitter shade, "Serendipity", below:

There is a good selection of shades and finishes, some really pretty looking colours and some of them will be used by me more than others but  I can't say there's any I wouldn't use at all. As expected for something festive, glitter and shimmer features heavily. I really like the quality of Ciate nail paints so think it's a fab wee present for anyone who likes to paint their nails different styles and colours - it isn't for someone who likes to keep things neutral.

Overall, I think it's great for £19.99 but wouldn't want to pay the £50.00 RRP.
