Hair jewelery, appliances, and bath and body sets that are nicely boxed and nicely priced, can be found in local stores for the holidays. They make great stocking stuffers. And so does nail Art. It’s the newest thing and so easy to do. For example, Maybelline’s Color Show Fashion Prints Nail Stickers and Sequins by Maybelline New York make nails party-ready, and they’re fun for New Years Eve and for a bit of bling all Winter long. The Fashion Prints Nail Stickers literally just stick on your nails like a sticker. Pull a design in the right size (you get 18 sized in a package for just $7.99), Press on your nail, smooth with the included cuticle stick, file with the included (and re-useable) mini file, and you’re done! The stickers are inspired by the runway, because, as you know, Maybelline has firmly established the fashion-forward brand with a huge presence at Fashion Week as a sponsor, and on the runway. I got a sneak peek of the “Midnight Lace” Nail Stickers at the Allure Lounge during Fashion week, but I can’t find the photo of my nails. It’s a black lace with gold and silver accents design that looks like sexy lingerie…just for your nails! Other styles are: Fierce N Fuchsia, Wild Reptile, Metal Prisms, Cheetah Chic, Sapphire Jewels (show in the photo), Divine Crocodile and Resort Couture.
For those who just need true glitz, these Sequins by Color Show Nail Polishes are just $3.99 each and come in semi-sheer color bases with tons of and tons of glitter. The photo above will just give you a good idea of what I’m talking about. The rundown of colors is : Ruby Rhinestones, Lavender Sparks, Silver Gleam, Gold’s Night Out, Sea-Quins, Rose Bling, Sapphire Masquerade, and Cocktail Dress. The one I tried, Ruby Rhinestones, has a sheer red base that really compliments the bling of the gred glitter. It might not be the thing to wear to a bank meeting, but for the holidays, it’s killer!
