There’s one beauty gift that’s almost guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser and that’s nail polish. But what about the color? you may ask. How do I know what colors my sister/friend/babysitter likes to wear? You could try taking a wild guess or you could go with a tried-and-true  (and seasonally appropriate) nail color: red. Every woman has at least one red laquer in her arsenal and you can’t go wrong with gifting her a few more from a red nail polish set for the holidays. Here are a few options for all budgets:


Pacifica Holiday Polish Trio in Holiday Reds, $20

For the eco-conscious polish lover, consider these 7-free colors from Pacifica Beauty. The shades are Blushing Bunnies, Red Red Wine and Cinnamon Girl.


Deborah Lippman Sexyback Lip and Nail Duet, $24

::: Tries not to make predictable-yet-unavoidable Justin Timberlake joke. ::: Deborah Lippmann fans will love her Sexyback Lip and Nail Duet, which includes one five-free nail polish and one lipstick, both in the “fierce flirty fuschia” shade SexyBack.


Guerlain Kisskiss Holiday Look Trio, $58

A nail polish, a lipstick and a mascara all come in Guerlain’s schmancy Kisskiss Holiday Look Trio. The nail shade is Rouge d’Enfer, while the KissKiss lipstick is 325 Rouge. This is truly a luxe makeup set for a beauty maven.


Hard Candy Polish Ornament, $1 (available at Walmart stores)

If you have a younger nail polish lover on your shopping list, you can’t go wrong with a Hard Candy polish wrapped up in an ornament. And it’ll only set you back a dollar! Stuff it in a stocking or hang it on the tree come December 25th.


Forever 21 Nail Color Trio, $4.90

Forever 21 has bulked up their beauty offerings in recent years. This holiday F21 offers many affordable gift sets, including several nail color trios. This particular trio comes with a gorgeous red polish, as well as a navy and a silver. (Here’s a glittery nail polish trio with a sparkly red if glitter is more your type!)
