Holiday Beauty Gifts They’ll Love
For the gal who’s all about a perfect manicure:
- A grab bag full of sparkly polishes from the Zoya Holiday 2019 - Twinkling Collection are sure to delight. You can’t go wrong with any of the on-trend shades in this collection.
- Any girl who’s serious about her nails and getting a perfect, professional at-home finish will want to have her own OPI Studio LED Light. No more smudges or “oopsies” with this fast nail polish light tool that cures all your nails quickly and evenly.
For the sensual gal:
No matter how great a woman looks, she’s never fully dressed unless she smells amazing too. Here are our picks for three of the most intoxicating and sure-to-please fragrances.
- Angel from Thierry Mugler. Angel is a wonderful everyday scent with vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli, plus fruit ovetones. It’s a great choice for engaging, open, social butterflies.
- Jean Paul Gaultier's Classique Eau de Parfum. This scent is sophisticated, warm and floral, plus the bottle shaped like a woman’s torso is a work of art in itself! For a lighter scent, choose the Eau de Toilette rather than the Eau de Parfum. Either one is a perfect match for the self-assured and strong but still very feminine woman.
- Michael Kors Eau de Parfum. This is an exotic and sensual scent that is a mix of forest and incense. Perfect for the woman who likes to retain a bit of mystery.
For the gal who loves self pampering:
- To bring the salon blowout experience home takes a professional hair dryer like The Turbo Power TwinTurbo 3900 Ionic & Ceramic Hair Dryer. The industry standard ionic and ceramic technology dries hair quickly and without damage, while reducing static electricity.
