CHRISTMAS PARTY ENAILS! [REVIEW]
With the new year peeping at me, I decided that in some way I need to give myself a little attention. And where better to start than my nails? I used to love having painted nails.
However, the thought of making sure my boys weren’t painting everything in sight keeping an eye on my boys whist I mulled over which shade I’d like in the middle of John Lewis frightened the Christmas spirit out of me and so when Enail recently offered me the opportunity to order nail polish from their website for free, I was very excited indeed.
Enail.com is very easy to navigate and simple to use. There are three steps to ordering your polishes.
Firstly, you can personalise your bottles! There are a handful of fonts available to fill three lines of text, printed in silver foil. I decided on My New Years Resolution.
Secondly, the fun part! The shades. Simply select your three colours by clicking on your desired shade swatch and dragging it across to the bottle, which then magically fills up with your chosen colour. There are 47 shades to try! This means that I spent at least half an hour refilling my bottles on enail as I am terrible at making decisions.
Finally, the packaging. There are a variety of box designs tied with a blue ribbon. I decided on a box with hearts on as I know the polishes won’t stay in the box [I’ll be hiding them before small wannabe nail technicians get their mitts on them] but as I have two little Valentine boys, the box can be reused for one of them.
I chose the prettiest gold and coppery shades and a sparkly one too! I have a thing about gold at the moment. I also didn’t have to wait long – as after ordering late at night, my polishes arrived within two days – and delivery is free in the UK, which always makes me more inclined to buy from a website. I hate thinking I’m paying a certain price and then finding that the postage is £6.99 or something.
When my pretty package arrived, there was a free bottle of top coat in a sweet little organza pouch [which the boys claimed as apparently it wasn’t mine, it was an elf sack] which I often use as a base to stop staining if I’m using dark red or purple polishes.
All three of my polishes were gorgeous and after only one coat I have sparkly, glistening nails! I’ve applied the glitter on top of the gold and it looks amazing – the glitter coat contains different sized particles so it looks extra festive. I love them. I can’t comment on chipping at the moment since I haven’t worn them more than 7 hours, but no chips so far with a baby, toddler and husky – we’ll see how we survive the last school run of the year!
Do you too deserve a treat? enail are also offering Keep Up With The Jones Family readers 10% off with code DISC10 – so now you can have pretty nails too! Which colours would you choose?
That is really neat. I always have my nails painted, so I would love to get this for Christmas.
Those look lovely! I really like the gold colors. I have a ton of nail polish. I love all kinds!
I love the gold, so pretty. I also think I need that wrapping paper, so unique.
I have a blogger Christmas party to go to tomorrow, but I have no idea what to do with my nails. I have a couple of nails painted right now – so indecisive!
That is so great that you found something to do just for you. I know as a mom you prioritize your kids, and I get that, but it is nice to do that little thing that makes you feel special. They look very pretty!
Ha ha your boys sound like mine. They love to make uses out of all my things, from ponytail holders to my bras as sling shots! I definitely have taken a back seat on making myself look and feel pretty since the kids arrived. But of course I wouldn't have it any other way since they too tell me I'm a pretty princess. 🙂 Love the color you chose!
Those metallic colors are really pretty! I wouldn't mind going this route for Christmas.
This nail kit looks awesome! I love the color that it has and the cute box as well!
I would love to get this set for myself! Your nails look so fun and festive 😀
What beautiful colors and your nails look so cute. Thanks for sharing.
Very festive. Love it.
I've never been one for makeup but I do love nail polish. For dressier occasions, I like silver.
I love new nail color options, so def thank you for sharing this. Looks so pretty and festive. THanks for sharing a good stocking stuffer idea!
I LOVE the colour you chose. Looks gorgeous on. I know exactly what you mean and My nails need some attention again. They are all breaking. That makes me mad!
The gold looks prettier. My wife would love this.
This looks like a really great nail polish. I really love polishing my nails.
Wow looks like a neat polish! Great picks btw. Will check 'em out!
A girl can never have too many nail polishes. Love the gold on you! 🙂
I totally here ya. I haven't wore make up in ages and always have my hair up in a ponytail. My kiddos always come first of course. Those are some nice looking nail polishes. I'm wanting to start doing more with makeup, so this will be a good start. =)
How pretty! I'm not much of a nail polish wearer since my nails hardly grow and break off so easily when they do. However, I'm wearing gold nail polish right now. 🙂
How fun. My daughter would love to play around with this, I'm sure. She's so good at doing her nails!
Your nails look terrific. I love the great colors.
Love anything glittery and gold! Gold is such a hot trend this year that I hope sticks around.
I love this custom gift idea for my daughter. I think I would choose one with sparkles and the other two some sort of wild colours.
What a cute and fun idea for a gift! I love that you can choose your own shades and message on the bottle.
The glitter is definitely my favorite. Gotta have an extra sparkle this time of year!
That's a good color. I don't take the time to paint my nails anymore, but I definitely should. Love that gold.
Love glitter anything, anytime. Especially during the holidays! These are fab colors! – Erin Kennedy
I love the colors. I need to start preparing my nails for Christmas. 🙂
I love the colors and they are great for the holidays. OK I think they would be great for any time but ya know that's just a me thing
