Avon Holiday Mani To-Go with swatches*


Halloween is over and just like that, we're now at daylight savings time and the holiday stuff is everywhere on shelves at the mall, grocery stores etc. So here I am, hopping on that holiday band wagon to slowly bring to you some holiday gifting ideas! This week is a great stocking stuffer set with some polishes to complete a perfect at-home manicure. 

     

This is the perfect stocking stuffer at $12 - a Glitter Manicure Kit! It's slim and compact and contains cuticle scissors, pusher, nail clipper and file as well as a pair of tweezers. It's portable and easy enough to slip into a purse or cosmetic bag within a purse to allow for convenience and easy access! It closes and is secured with a latch meaning the tools will not fly around inside your bag as well! I've gone ahead and popped this into my purse actually because sometimes you never know when you need a tweezer, or nail clippers for a hang nail etc. It's a nice to have for sure. Something you may or may not buy yourself, but something that will be appreciated by the individual you're gifting it to!

In addition to the manicure set, gifting some polishes would be a cute idea - 2 or 3 to help them achieve an at-home manicure and have their nails ready for the Holiday Season :) I always do my manicures at home now, it's just so much more budget friendly and you can switch it up whenever you want to!

Below you'll find three colors from the Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel line. These polishes offer a high-gloss gel like finish (as the name suggests) and the 7 benefits included are: Shine, Gel-Like finish, vivid color, base coat, top coat, protection and strengthener.

For the purposes of full disclosure, while this 7-in-1 formula includes a base coat already, I like to put on a separate base coat to just protect my nails and offer a better "foundation" for the polish application and just in case to prevent yourself further from staining.

These polishes do pack a color punch - all of the below swatches are with one coat only - that's all you need, seriously! My favorite color would have to be Envy, a shimmery emerald forest green, followed by Roses are Red, a beautiful holiday red and lastly Glimmer. The formulation on Glimmer contains denser glitter particles which means that the removal process is just a bit more stubborn.

        

Left to Right - Envy, Glimmer and Roses are Red ($9 cad each)

I highly suggest that you pick up these polishes - at $9 they are very reasonable and offers a gorgeous salon-like manicure but at the comfort and budget-friendly method of your own home!

Until next time, XO - M.
