Nail Varnish Advent Calendar

Post  Sally Magpie on Wed Oct 17, 2012 4:38 am

I need to get this idea to one of the big companies, as I think it is AMAZING!

My husband has a lego one, so why not a nail varnish one?

I'd love it, but I'd have to buy it for myself. I have enough trouble trying to get OH to buy me a cheap Hello Kitty advent calendar! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

eeek! Then again the lego one was £25.

I have a bit of an issue with Ciate because they seem to bully bloggers a bit and threatened them with legal action if they didn't cease to use the caviar manicure name as it was 'theirs'. Not sure I like that.

The price is a tad ka-ching isn't it?! I've just sent my mum the link - my thoughts are I've bought each of their dogs an advent calendar over the years so surely she owes me one..... Laughing

I've heard Ciate are a bit funny about the use of 'caviar manicure'. I went through a stage of using the words 'caviar' and 'manicure' in my signature just to give them extra work when they searched. It's a small protest but it made me feel better!

I still used the words on my blog. Bugger em, thats what I thought Smile

Same as Lynderella, I like some of the polishes, I don't like the concept.

However, I have just brought Love, Lace and Lawsuits from Ninjapolish Smile

I don't like Ciate, for that reason i'm out! Laughing


I'd love one of these by OPI or MO though Shocked

Actually i'm quite glad they don't make them. I'd have to buy them from every company that makes them and then i'd be poor.

This would be amazing...do you think if I tell my boyfriend 'if you really love me, you'd make me one' that it'd work...?

Lady S, water decals are great. So so easy to use. I've got some full nail ones that I got really cheap on ebay, and they're so much easier than full nail stickers. You don't have to cut them down or anything; once you've top coated them the bits on your skin will just peel off.

If you can't find anyone else, I don't mind doing that for you if you pay the P&P Laughing

Thank you so much for this, I was going to get it from Selfridges as the p&p was putting me off slightly (hubby buying it for me so didn't want to be cheeky) I was going to go over as my train pass is still valid but it's cheaper from qvc even with p&p plus 5% quidco yay

No problem. I'm pleased I've helped you out. I've seen the demonstration and it looks lovely!

I would have purchased but I've treated myself to the red carpet manicure kit Embarassed

Is that for uv gel nails? I keep getting tempted to buy a kit then chickening out. My beautician does mine for £25 which is actually far cheaper than the amount I spend on polish. Just get bored off the same colour for ages, don't mind painting over it occasionally.

That's right - it's actually an LED lamp rather than UV so its a bit quicker I think. I've just qualified to do manicures and pedicures and everyone is asking about gel colours. I'm not overly fussed (apart from for my toes maybe) but thought with the moneyback guarantee and easypay, it's a good time to give it a go. I was signed up for a course on them but this was going to be £25 so that's pretty much one easy payment....see how I can justify my spends?!

My mum is also suffering from one peeling nail which is becoming the bane of my life because I cannot resolve it. I thought this might be a solution to strengthen her nails so it can grow the peeling patch out.

Very true (I justify spends as well) Tess makes it look easy when she does mine but I am clumsy, I flood my cuticles loads so more practise needed I reckon.

I really want this, but can't afford it. Too many other polish spends.

Can even subtle hint to OH as he doesn't do computers or online or anything like that. He doesn't even know how to turn his phone on!

I've never owned a Ciaté polish before so I don't even know if I'll like them, but I feel I simply must buy it now. Neutral Embarassed

Life does seem a little bit empty without it doesn't it? I would love to get it and if I put my mind to it, I could justify the spend but I know having spent £63 at Sally's this weekend (it was mostly on gifts!), I shouldn't.

When did I become a grown up? I don't like it!
