Christmas is only a few short days away! AH! I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. It seems like I just got home yesterday, and yet somehow tomorrow is already Christmas Eve. We’ve been running around a little crazy here trying to sort out all the holiday plans (a snowstorm in Flagstaff is throwing us for a loop!) and at last minute my mom and I decided to stop for a festive manicure for the holidays. So I broke out my new OPI nail polishes for us to use!
OPI always comes out with the best collections, and this holiday season was no different! This year they offered two different sets: Red Solutions and Bare-ly There, both of which are perfect to fit in a stocking! For my mom, she loves the darker reds around the holidays so the first set was perfect for her. It comes with the perfect bright Christmas red as well as some gorgeous, shimmery burgundy shades that will look amazing for New Years. I personally prefer the second set, as I’ve been loving nude polish this year and the variety of shades are different enough to give you three unique nail looks. The last shade in this set is my absolute favorite and the one I chose to use this time around! I love the shimmery flecks of gold throughout which gives the neutral look a more lavish, festive feel.
Although a full-size OPI polish can be a bit pricy, they’re always at the top of my list because I know I can trust the polish to last. And luckily the mini sets come for the price of a full-size bottle, which in my opinion is preferable, because I never make it through a full bottle anyway. This way you can try out multiple shades for a more affordable price, making them the perfect stocking gift (for yourself or someone else)!
