Holiday Gift Ideas

The Holidays are upon us, and there is little time to go out and get those gifts for friends, family members, co-workers, etc. Why not give the gift of nice nails this season? Your gift receiver doesn't necessarily have to be a seasoned pro when it comes to nails. Feel free to go through my photos to find some appropriate polishes you may give, and depending on if that person is a free spirit and would love yellows, greens and blues, or are more conservative when it comes to polishes where pinks, reds and sheers would be most appropriate. I would say the most important gift you would be able to give someone who is new to nails is a quick dry topcoat such as Seche Vite, Poshe, Sally Hansen Insta Dri (in the red bottle at your local drugstore), or China Glaze Fast Forward topcoat would make excellent choices. Most of these can be found at your local drugstores or at online e-tailers where they will be found cheaper. I know before I really got into polish I would have killed to know about these instead of sitting around for hours to make sure I don't ruin my newly painted nails.

Other gifts you can give would include a good pair of nail clippers, orange sticks that you can use to push back cuticles (found at Sally's beauty Supply or other beauty shops), cuticle remover, a glass nail file (yes glass, these are so much better than normal files), cuticle oil (such as CND Solar Oil which is popular) and nail treatments (if they happen to complain about peeling or brittle nails).

If he/she is already really into nails then there are some other fun gifts you may be able to give such as Konad nail art or nail decals. This is only a small list of the endless opportunities you may be able to give so hopefully this helps you a bit. There's only a little over 2 weeks until Christmas is here so your shopping days are becoming limited (I know, crazy isn't it?!). If you have any other questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me and I will do my best to help. Good luck!
