The gift of giving!

Hello & Happy Friday! It seems like the week has flown right past me! Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend? I plan on sitting and enjoying my time with the boys before I go back to work on Monday.

Since Christmas is near I thought I would do a fun present inspired mani:) I'm one of those people who would prefer to give gifts than receive them. I love seeing faces light up when you've given them something, especially when they weren't expecting it.

Whenever I go to Walmart I always browse the beauty section, even if I don't plan on purchasing anything. Well on my trip the other day I spotted an end cap with new Salon Perfect polishes in it, Hello new bottles! I was so surprised, the bottles are much larger and a lot nicer looking! So of course, I had to pick up a few.

I used two coats of Salon Perfect- Glitzy Green, a dark green flecked polish, I looove the look of this and it looks very similar to Orly- Under the mistletoe so I'll be doing a comparison on those in the next few days. Then for the ribbons I used a red glitter striper, and the bow I stamped with Essence- A Piece of Forever and a cheeky XL plate. All topped with two coats of Seche Vite (the striper was a little thick)

The formula on Glitzy Green was really great and very manageable. The only thing is the brush was crooked, so it was a little difficult to round around the cuticle area.

What do you think of my gifts?

Until Next Time!
