The essie advent calendar consists of 24 nail products - mostly nail polish or nail art/manicure supplies.
All polishes are minis and have 5ml/0.16 fl.oz. of product in the bottle.
Day 1 - my wish list
my wish list is a pastel/baby pink creme. The swatch picture shows 3 coats. (Please excuse the green cuticles, the polish I wore before this stained :/ )
This polish dries super glossy. Formula is okay, not too thick, not too runny. Depending on your preference, 2 coats might be enough for you.
Day 2 - snowflakes are kisses sent from heaven
The swatch picture shows 1 coat over essie's don't sweater it.
Sometimes, the larger hex glitters can sink to the bottom, but a little swirling helps with that!
Day 3 - kiss under the mistle toeThis is a forest green/christmas tree green creme. The swatch picture shows 2 coats. This polish is opaque in one thick coat, but I prefer doing two thin ones. The formula is a little thick, but that's necessary for a polish this opaque.
Day 4 - see you in my dreams
Day 5 - the night of magicThis polish is a very dark, almost black, blue creme. In most lighting, this looks black, but in bright natural lights, the blue undertone is visible. The swatch picture shows one coat, and since the picture was taken in indoor lighting, it looks black. This polish dries to a semi-matte finish. The formula is pretty decent for a one-coater.
Day 6 - stocking shaped nail file
Day 7 - made with love
made with love is a nude crelly/jelly polish. The swatch picture shows four coats. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this polish as much as the previous ones. This is very sheer and also has quite a thick formula. Not a good combination unfortunately. Even with 4 coats, it was only about 95% opaque (and it started looking very goopy).
This polish dries very glossy though.
