Glam Polish Gift Boxes

Hey everyone, sorry that this post is so late. The end of the university semester has been killing me this year. I am currently away on an out of area work experience for my degree and I am overloaded with work. I have almost no nail time and I am starting to have withdrawals! Anyway, enough about my personal life and on to the good news... Glam Polish has gift boxes! I am sure most of you would have already seen swatches of these polishes, and some of you may have already brought them too! These adorable little gift boxes are perfect gifts for Christmas (it is creeping up on us faster than ever!). These limited edition gift boxes come in three different combinations. The first combination box is the four different polishes in a mini size. The second combination is two full size bottles, one bottle of "Bad Santa" and one bottle of "Elf." The third box is two full size bottles, one bottle of "The Polar Express" and one bottle of "Nightmare before Xmas." Each of the gift boxes also comes with a cutlicle balm, lip balm, some gold tear drop nail studs, and some holo silver nail studs. These gift boxes are perfect for a friend who might want to try Glam Polish for the first time, or you could always just buy yourself a sneaky little Christmas gift (I'm sure you deserve it)!

All of these polishes have fantastic formulas. For each of my swatches I used two coats plus a glossy top coat. 

The lip balm that comes in the gift boxes is absolutely divine. It has an amazing smell, not too strong, but not too subtle either. It is super moisturizing and it doesn't feel waxy (I hate waxy feeling lip balms). The only thing I have to note about the lip balm is that it is super soft. So don't roll it up too far and don't press it against your lips too hard because it will break.

The cuticle balm also has fantastic moisturizing qualities and comes in a handy size too. The cuticle balm was a bit harder than the lip balm. I feel that if the consistency of the lip balm and the cuticle balm were swapped they would be perfect.

The lip balm and the cuticle balm are also available separately (No one would blame you if they happened to slip into your shopping cart on your next Glam Polish order).
