Boots and Ciate Advent Calender Weekly Round up! #2

Hi Guys,

This is the second part of three in my Boots Beauty Advent Calender Series which then has added on the Ciate Mini Month Calender, where I'm showing what I got in the Advent Calendar and what my little mini review/ first impressions on each product is! If you haven't seen the first part of this its - HERE.


9th - Seventeen Shine Nail Polish in Miami 
This Calender knows me well, One of my most used colours is this bright pink fuchsia shade, I've never tried the Seventeen Nail Varnishes so I'll give this one a go and maybe I'll "need" to buy more!

10th - Orly Bonder Base Coat
I was very excited to see this, I love Orly Nail Polish and I'm just about to run out of my current O.P.I Base Coat, so this is great timing!

11th - Ghost Fragrance 
I've never smelt this so I'm Intrigued, usually I get perfume samples and fall in love and they're always the expensive ones! I will sniff this, but its firmly wedged in the advent calender..

12th - Boots Nail Shine Solution
After the reading the back of the box, seeing as this is one of the only things I've managed to carve from the calender... this seems to be a base coat but primarily a polish to make your nails look shiny and healthier on its own.

13th  - Vichy LiftActiv Serum
What I gather about this is that its a serum for your eyes and lashes? I'll have to look a bit more into it, but I currently cant get it out of the advent calender just like the Ghost Fragrance.

14th - Juicy Couture Perfume in Couture La La
I've tried a few Juicy Couture Fragrance samples before and liked them, I know this sounds a bit stupid but is anyone else put off of them a bit just due to the bottle? Please say I'm not the only one! I look forward to giving this a sniff though, might have to add it to the very long fragrance list that's amounting!

15th - Seventeen Tattoo Me 48hr Eye liner
48hr Eye liner? I cant say I'd keep the same make up on for 48hr's so I'm not too sure if this lives to its claim. I cant actually do liquid liner and I want to start to try to, So I'll probably give this one a go and you'll probably see a review in a short while if I love it! Cant say it'll include a test of wearing it for 48hr's though haha!

16th -  Spotty Nail File
Well this is pretty straight forward, its just a pink and white dotty nail file basically.

Ciate Mini Mani Month

9th - Candy Floss
A baby Barbie blue toned pink.

10th - Caviar Pearls in Silver
Pretty straight forward, just the beads in a plain silver.

11th - Pepperminty
A blue toned peppermint green, One of my all time favourite nail shades!

12th - Caviar Pearls in Metallic Gold
Again just the nail beads but this time in Gold.

13th  - Encore!
A red toned orange, which slightly looks brown, its kind of a terracotta shade.

14th - Ivory Queen
A lovely peach shade with a very fine gold sparkle running through it.

15th - Glitter in Twinkle Toes
A very finely milled Silver Holographic Glitter.

16th - Chinchilla
A blue toned grey shade.

(Swatches: Left to Right - Candy Floss, Pepperminty, Encore!, Ivory Queen and Chinchilla)

My favourite two products this week will have to be the Orly Bonder Base Coat and the Ciate Glitter in Twinkle Toes, This week's things have defiantly been very nail themed, obviously so in the Ciate Calender but the boots one has four nail products in it too this week!
