Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! The music, the food, the presents, the food! I’m all about the good feels. If you’re like me and enjoy unwrapping little Christmas goodies, then I’ve got something I’m sure you’ll enjoy. 12 brands have come together around the well-known 12 Days of Christmas song and created a product to reflect each day. It’s pretty clever, eh! I’m coming on the late end of things with pre-order wrapping up tonight, so let’s jump right down the chimney!
The 12 Makers Of Christmas
Day 1 – Lilly Anne’s Garden
Partridge In A Pear Tree
Misty used her tried and true Crème de la Crème formula for this luxuriating cuticle creme scented in Christmas Pear. This is a blend of sweet pear with a touch of citrus and cinnamon. It’s incredibly moisturizing yet not greasy. I’ve always been a fan of Misty’s lotion and this is a great opportunity to try them out in an even smaller size.
Day 2 – Wildflower Lacquer
Two Turtle Doves
Two Turtle Doves is a frosted gray crelly with a mix of rainbow glitter, scattered holographic and a lovely purple and blue shimmer. I love the choice of glitters Taylor uses here against the gray base. The application is an easy medium and dries to a bit of a satin finish with topcoat really bringing all the element to their high points. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Day 3 – Braves Diva Polish
Three French Hens
Tara created a dark beauty here with a black-based creme filled with green shimmer reminiscent of dark, glistening feathers or evergreens. The application is easy and it dries to a nice shine. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Day 4 – Angel Wings Nail Polish
Four Calling Birds
Vanessa stitched together this 4″ x 6″ 100% cotton, lined zippered bag for the fourth day. I love the wintery design on it! This bag should hold 3 regular sized polishes and a cuticle pen to give you an idea of it’s holding capacity.
Day 5 – Nailartchaholic
Five Golden Rings
This is part of the song that you belt out at the top of your lungs! Sylv contributes 5 midi rings in a variety of styles. I’m a size 7 on my ring finger and one was able to go past my knuckles! I usually only ever wear my wedding set but these are quite fun!
Day 6 – Designs By Edie
Six Geese A Laying
For the Sixth day, Edie contributes a fun silver keychain with three different girly themed charms. There will also a be a goose ornament which I don’t have images of. My keychain is quite cute, featuring a blowdryer, a comb, and scissors!
Day 7 – Zaftig Lacquer
Seven Swans A Swimming
Janice created this ethereal beauty for the Seventh Day. Seven Swans A Swimming is a white-based multichrome that shifts from yellow to orange to copper to red and has a mix of scattered holographic flakes. It applies smoothly and builds well. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Day 8 – Nailed It! Nail Polish
Eight Maids A Milking
Okay, guys! This smells yummy! Tia’s handmade, vegan coconut milk soap is made with activated charcoal and scented with kiwi, lime, strawberry, and bubbly champagne. It even looks like a spotted cow and I must tell you that the pink leans a bit more toward neon than showing here in my photos.
Day 9 – Inspurrations Nail Polish
Nine Ladies Dancing
Lisette’s creation is the super sparkly glitter topper, Nine Ladies Dancing. It’s a mix of nine different glitters in a variety of colors and shapes adding a festive feel to any shade. It dries with a little bit of a texture which is much to be expected. I’m wearing one coat with a generous topcoat.
Day 10 – Chaotic Glitz Polish
Ten Lords A Leaping
For Ten Lords A-Leaping, Meagan created this mani bomb in the scent sugar plum. The scent is slightly warm and fruity but not overly sweet. Mani bombs like these are a great addition to your hand care routine as they help soften up the cuticle before cleaning up while adding nourishing oils and moisture.
Day 11 – LynB Designs
Eleven Pipers Piping
This is a beautiful deep mint green jelly base is linear holographic and a golden shimmer. It’s so pretty! The consistency falls between light and medium and dries to that glossy finish consistent with jellies. I’m wearing three coats with a glossy topcoat.
Day 12 – Ribbits Stickits
12 Drummers Drumming
Kristy’s water decals are a quick and easy way to add some festivity to your nails. The sheet includes 41 clear backed decals, 26 black and white and 15 are colored including a long row that you can cut to size.
This is such a fun idea and a smaller take on the advent calendar style! I really enjoyed all the products in here!
