With the holiday baking, shopping,cleaning and wrapping piling up, I haven’t had time to run to the salon for a manicure. We all want to look our best during the holiday season but making sure my nails are done is always the last thing on the list. Partly because I don’t want to mess up a good manicure, but really the amount of time and money it costs to get what I want can be too much at the holidays – plus let’s not even talk about how long the wait at the salon is this time of year.
A couple of years ago, I was introduced to nail polish strips. They are these magical things that can allow you to get to a full manicure in under ten minutes while not leaving the house. It’s as simple as shaping your nails, peeling the polish strip off and applying it. I do always like to finish mine with a nice top coat so they last even longer, but on average the manicure will last a good couple of weeks. And you can apply them easier than wrapping those presents that are building up.
This year, we were sent some of their festive designs from Pretty in Polish, featuring beautiful red glittery snow flakes and silver packages wrapped in bows. The designs can mix well to create a unique design or just one design if you prefer that. The set only costs $13 which is about half of what getting a single color manicure. And the nail polish strips will last you through the holiday parties, through the party clean up and even taking the tree down.
With a beautiful variety of options, an affordable price and durability, you may find yourself taking your time back from sitting in a salon waiting and doing your nails beautifully at home.
