Cute Christmas Present Idea!

One of my friends recently told me about a gift they bought their Mum for their birthday, and I thought it was so nifty I'd share it here! If I hadn't bought all my xmas gifts already (yes I know, super scary organised...) I would definitely be getting my mum and sis one of these!

It's called 'Couture' for Nails Inc. You basically 'create' your very own nail polish, and you get to choose all the details and components that make up the product, right down to the cap, label and box! It's such a cool idea, and my favourite part of it is that you get to name the nail polish whatever you like, which makes it a lovely personalised gift.

Here's one I made, called Hips Like Cinderella (naturally!)








I chose the champagne gold gem lid as I thought it complimented my Jermyn Street nail polish colour, which is a lovely taupe shade. I chose to label the box with grey hearts (the other options say things like 'Happy Birthday', 'BFF', 'With Love' etc

I think this makes a great gift, not just for xmas and birthdays but for bridesmaid gifts (or hen gifts), mother's day gift, get well soon gift etc! It costs £20 so it's a little bit more than a standard Nails Inc polish, but I think it's worth it as you can personalise it and you get a snazzy crystal cap and a cute gift box.

What 'couture' nail polish would you create?
