Best of the Beauty Advent Calendars for 2016

best_beauty_advent_calendars_2016

Christmas is exactly 7 weeks away so it’s about the time to start stocking up on Christmas themed goods (if you haven’t already). I’m not normally one for getting on the Christmas train this early but look at me all organised and prepared!

Over the last few years, beauty advent calendars have slowly risen in popularity and I feel like this year they’re just absolutely everywhere. The first one I remember seeing was the Ciaté calendar years back – maybe 2012/13? You guys must remember that one. It. Blew. Our. Collective. Minds!

The selection of Nail Polish themed Advent Calendars hasn’t opened up much since that first effort from Ciaté (who are still in the game) but there are a crazy number of brands releasing their own beauty Advent Calendars. While I was making my own wishlist, I was blown away by the choice on offer – here are some of my top picks.
