Perfect gift for beauty lovers!

Hello everyone! It's recently been one of my best friend's birthdays (happy birthday Eli!) and she is equally as obsessed with all things beauty as I am. For me, that's excellent, as I can pretty much buy her anything that I really enjoy and know that she'll love it too! However, I know it can be a struggle some times to think of 'special' beauty gifts - and I'm so pleased with everything I bought her this year - but there was one in particular I loved.

This is a gift that I would really really love to recieve myself - you wouldn't believe the temptation to order myself one at the same time! It's the Nails Inc 'Couture' polish. You essentially completely customise your own bottle of nail varnish - you pick the cap, the colour, and my favourite part - you can rename the polish on the bottom of the bottle! This is perfect for putting on a little inside joke - as mine is, I won't even try to explain the joke - or someone's nickname etc, just to make it feel really special. I chose the black studded cap, with the colour Savile Row (gloss finish). They then pack it into a lovely little box, you choose two stickers to put on there, and then a nice ribbon with a bow is popped on it and voila! Some people may find the £20 price tag a little bit expensive, but when you consider a regular polish by them is £11 and the special effects one are at least £12 and upwards, I don't think it's that bad. You're paying for the personalisation as well as a presentation box (which you know would cost you £3-£4 in a card shop anyway without looking half as nice). I just think it's a really lovely, unique gift and I would definitely purchase again!

So what do you think? Is the £20 price tag worth what you get inside? For me (and for Eli) it was! Obviously Nails Inc. is of very good quality and the whole gift looks and feels very professional. I hope this gave you some inspiration for future gifts - if not, you can always have fun customising things on the website!
