Christmas Gift Guide: Nail Polish Sets

I have already posted quite a few Christmas Gift Guides, and there are more to come…

And today it is a nail polish edition. Here are the three sets that I personally think are the best! And I’d totally love to receive each myself.

Smith and Cult Holiday Trio  from Neiman Marcus for $54 or Space NK for £47.

Want It: Nailberry Nail Polish

As I’ve posted last month, it’s all about red and berry nail polishes for me now. I am browsing all the different nail polish collections, and nothing calls out my name.  In fact the only nail polish on my wish list is Marc Jacob’s Lola (it is already mine!). 

That was until I discovered Nailberry!

It is a relatively new  4 free (Free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and Camphor. It is also cruelty free) nail polish brand from the UK.

It has probably the coolest design for a nail polish ever, very chic and sophisticated.  Cool name, nice front, simple black and  white label and elegant bottle.

And, of course, with the name Nailberry you would expect some

So what are the news in the nail polish world?

Nails Polish Fall 2013 Nails Inc Barry M Ciate Armani

First of all, lacquer fans have to know that Armani just launched a line of their own varnishes, each retails for £20 and on the picture above you can see 503 Eccentrico.

The always original Ciate came up with the new innovative manicure kit -Feathered Manicure . Pictured above is “What A Hoot” which  retails for £20. And, yes, you basically use real feathers for your mani. It’s up to you to decided whether this is your thing, or not.

For someone who is not exactly into “nude” nail polishes, I have quite a few. I have chosen seven which could fit the nude/taupe/brown-ish category.

So what shades do I have? And which is my favourite?

Nude Nail polishes Dior, Ciate, MeMeMe, butter LONDON, Yves Rocher,Rimmel

Dior Vernis in Grege

I love the wide and thin brush which makes the application super easy and fast.  It is a beautiful warm shade which suits me when I get some tan. But if you have a light-to-medium warm skin tone – this may be a perfect nude for you.  See it applied on the nails.

MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Alluring

This is one of the darkest nail polishes from the selection, and should be a nice nude for people with darker skin. Or if you want a brown nail polish against the light skin.  The quality is nice for the price, too.  Swatches.

Nude Nail Polishes Dior MeMeMe Yves Rocher

Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Taupe

This is definitely not a nude, but a taupe.  Such shade was super popular several years ago and I can totally see why: it goes well with pretty much everything and doesn’t compete with your outfit or accessories. Manicure with it.

MeMeMe Long Lasting Gloss in Ambitious

It looks like that

Nails Of The Day: LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer

I am happy to share about the new nail polish brand called LVX (Latin, means Light) which  is a 5 Free (without Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, and Camphor), cruelty free, vegan nail polish.

The main idea behind the brand is to compliment the seasonal fashion trends.

So far there are only three collections available – Summer 2012, Fall/Winter 2012 and Winter Resort 2013. And I have a shade which is a part of the Fall/Winter collection and is called Sanguine.

The formula of this nail polish is great, it goes on  smoothly without streaks and looks beautiful even with one coat, but I still prefer two. The brush, which is also a very important thing, is nice,aw well. It’s not too thin or too thick (although I personally like thick brushes), just spot on.

This colour is
