Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond

MSRP $6.59

sally hansen almost almondI think a nail polish is a great small gift to give during the holidays. Most women will want to dress up their nails (or at least have them look halfway decent) for all those holiday parties. This nail polish in Almost Almond will look great on anyone! Plus this nude tone will go with all their holiday outfits. It looks a little plain in the bottle, but has a pearlescent sheen to it when applied. It looks quite chic! I think it looks best with 3 coats (I find that lighter nail polishes take a few more coats too look complete). It goes on smooth and even, just make sure you leave enough drying time between each coat! And since it's Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure, the nail polish has all these benefits as well:

• Base Coat
• Strengthener
• Growth Treatment
• Color
• Top Coat
• Chip-Resistant
• Gel Shine

Pucker Lip Shine is Burt’s Bees super shiny lip gloss. Worn alone, or over the Tinted Balm, Pucker Lip Shine will give you a moderately long-lasting shiny finish to delicately tinted lips. The super cute packaging makes this a perfect gift or stocking stuffer for the holidays.burts bees tinted n shine


Burt's Bees Mani-Pedi Gift Set
MSRP: $14.99

Winter wreaks havoc on my hands. It seems as though the second daylight savings hits, I am constantly battling with dry, tight feeling hands. I am constantly washing my hands as well, especially as cold and flu season looms before us. Constant washing also leads to dry hands, cracked cuticles and my hands seem more susceptible to paper cuts. Tis’ the season for gift giving as well, whether it is for a special hostess, coworker, friend, and the list goes on and on. Burt’s Bees helped to alleviate all of my winter blues with their great Mani-Pedi Gift Set.

The first product from this kit is Burt’s Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream. This lightweight cream is perfect for everyday use, and lives on my kitchen sink, as I like to use this cream every time I wash my hands. Shea Butter is of course one of my favorite ingredients, and so versatile. Soothing, healing and supremely moisturizing, Shea Butter is what makes this hand cream great. Botanical Oils lend a beautiful fragrance to this hand cream (important for me, as I am always peeling garlic this time of the year) The result is soft, beautifully conditioned hands.

Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is the next product in this 3 product kit. Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream smells amazing, and is the perfect counterpart to Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream. Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is the added oomph my cuticles need during these dry months. I also love this cuticle cream for at home manicures. Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream nourishes and hydrates my nails and cuticles.

The third product in this perfect for gifting kit is Burt’s Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion. This foot lotion is the perfect addition to this kit. As a gift, the receiver has everything they need to give themselves an amazing at-home mani-pedi. The cooling Peppermint Foot Cream is the perfect cream for a foot massage. Also included is a beautiful blue and green print bag to house all three great products in a convenient zippered pouch.
