Ciaté advent calendar: Dec 6 to 10

Last week I showed you the first round of nail polishes from the amazing Ciaté advent calendar, and it's time again to catch up and see what was behind the doors from Dec 6 to Dec 10. I was quite happy with the first few nail polishes although I did say that I wanted a bit more variety when it comes to the shades, but this week I think it's been a really lovely mix of shades with everything from the delicate to the metallic:

Dec 6 - Sugar Plum: A lovely creamy light and girly violet that makes me think of Spring and Summer, but I will also experiment with this using the Nails Inc Snowflake Effect top coat.
Dec 7 - Fir for a Queen: A cool, metallic chrome for a sleek contemporary look.
Dec 8 - Kiss Chase: A beautiful soft genuine bubblegum pink for a playful flirtatious look
Dec 9 - Pillowfight: A wonderful feminine soft gray with a lilac undertone, which would be a great option for a neutral nail. 
Dec 10 - Speed coat: Top coat to help your nails dry within 60 seconds (not shown in the swatches)

All these shades are lovely and I would definitely wear everyone of them but my favourite amongst these ones is Kiss Chase. I'm not usually big on pink nails for me but this shade has a warm undertone and it's a more grown up version of pink, so soon you might see me sport a pink pinky!
