So Christmas is coming and you're probably in a bit of a panic about what to get for your friends, family and loved ones, right? Here 's our solution: nail polish! But it's not as simple as that. You probably wouldn't want to get an oxblood shade for your boss, and you mom might not appreciate a neon pink. So here are some suggestions to help ease that pre-Christmas panic!
If you're thinking of getting some nail polish for your girlfriend's stocking (probably because she's been hinting heavily) but aren't sure what shade, it's simple: go for a striking red . Not only does a girl always need a pillar-box red in her makeup bag, but by getting her a sexy color, she'll take it as a compiment. Win and win.
Nail polish is always a good idea if you're shopping for your BFF. If you know her favorite color, great, but if you're not sure if she's a light pink or a bright blue kind of girl, how about going for a cool glittery top-coat? This is the perfect solution, because she can apply it over her favorite shade to add some sparkle to her look. Ideal for the party season!
Moms rarely take the time to treat themselves enough. But when it comes to nail polish, they need a color which can work throughout the day, the grocery run, and still be appropriate for picking up the kids after school. She needs the kind of color that is pretty without being too intense and noticeable, especially if she risks chipping her nails during the day. For these reasons, a dusky pink is ideal: it adds warmth to your nails but is subtle enough to suit anything that the day might throw at her.
Deciding on what to get a colleague for Christmas is not an easy task. Whether it's because of a secret santa, or just to show your appreciation, nail polish is always a winner. But because choosing the right color is a bit of a risky business, we recommend you go for a top coat or base coat (or an all-in-one!) This way, you won't accidently get a color she hates, and the top coat/base coat will help protect her nails. Now that's a thoughtful gesture, no? You definitely deserve a promotion.
