All Set!

Ah, the gift set. That thing everyone gives as an easy way out but the receiver is always stuck with maybe one thing they really like and all this other stuff they don’t need at all (or the entire set just sucks and in that case, it’s pretty much a waste of a gift…although we like to think it’s the thought that counts).

So today I wanted to take on the challenge of the gift set (whether it be in the beauty department, loungewear, and even some accessories) and find actually cool sets that you’ll be proud to give and your friends/family will love to receive.

Chanel Top Coat Velvet

From someone who has an extensive nail polish collection, that includes a few matte colors, I’ve always wanted a matte top coat but could never find one. And thanks to a white elephant mishap last week, I discovered Chanel Top Coat Velvet.

I wanted to do a really fun manicure for New Years and because I dedicate my Mondays to manis…I get to share my NYE nails with you today!

I thought it would be cool to try something unconventional and do the matte top coat over a black glitter nail polish…and I absolutely love the results!

Are you doing a fun manicure for New Years?
