HolidayAdvent Calendar

**press sample**


Hi friends, welcome back! Today I have the Quo by ORLY 12 Days of Colorful Healthy Nails Holiday Advent Calendar to share with you!

The holiday season brings a wide variety of advent styled calendars, bringing an element of fun while counting down until Christmas day. When I was younger, I remember my mother always getting me and my sister each our very own chocolate advent calendars - it was the most exciting thing ever! However, it took a lot of restraint not to tear into the entire thing at once and indulge. Adults can now enjoy advent styled calendars as much as kids - yay! 

The Quo by ORLY 12 Days of Colorful Healthy Nails advent calendar can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart and is available for $40. The breathable formula prevents chipping and peeling for longer lasting manicures. These nail polishes are 1-step no base of topcoat needed. With that being said, no top coat was used to pair with the swatches. They contain treatment + color with argan oil pro vitamin B5 and vitamin C.

This advent calendar is most especially exciting for me, because it contains nail polish! I don't know what's harder; waiting each day as a child for a piece of chocolate, or waiting each day to unveil a new nail polish. In this case, no waiting was necessary as I dove into the calendar and swatched all the nail polishes to share with you. This would make for a fantastic gift for the nail polish lover in your life! 

Let's get onto the swatches!

Day 1: Stronger Than Ever

Stronger Than Ever is a ruby red with a gorgeous gold shimmer. My swatch shows Stronger Than Ever applied in 2 easy coats. This shade makes for perfect holiday party nails!

Day 2: Pep In Your Step

Pep In Your Step is warm pink neon creme. My swatch shows Pep In Your Step applied in 3 coats and found the formula to be a tad thin with this particular polish. Gorgeous shade, and worth the 3 coats for such a fun pop of colour! In person, this leans a teensy bit more on the coral side versus what's translating through my swatch photos.

De-Stressed Denim is a light washed demin creme. My swatch shows De-Stressed Denim applied in 2 easy coats and found the formula to offer almost full cover within the 1st coat!
