I have a 13 year-old daughter that likes to paint her nails every day. Well maybe not EVERY day, but it sure seems like it. The smell of nail polish remover can frequently be found wafting down from her room upstairs. It seems like most of her friends love nail polish as much as she does. They love to talk about nail polish, new patterns to paint, and collect many different colors of nail polish.
While it doesn’t seem that there are as many birthday parties to go to as when she was younger, my daughter still loves to give her friends gifts on their birthday. We found out as she has gotten older that it’s harder to find gifts for her friends. It seems that we default to a gift card many times, but sometimes she wants to give them something a little bit different. So this year we started giving her friends little nail polish gift sets. Since she never knows what colors of nail polish her friends already have we have started making up gift sets with some fun nail polish accessories too.
Recently we gave a friend of hers a gift set that had a couple of colors of nail polish and a few fun other things. We designed a little gift that included some extra nail polish remover, a remover dispenser pump, and some nail drying spray. We then created a fun little gift tag to tie on the bag that said “Paint Toes.”
The tag is a little take off of a pantone color swatch. At first I thought that her friends wouldn’t know what that was and that the tag wouldn’t make any sense to them. Then I realized that they are all on Pinterest 24/7 and therefore know what pantone swatches are. I was able to pick up all of the items at my local Target.
Once again I went with the up & up brand from Target (we are big fans of their sunscreen and cleaning supplies). Because of this I was pretty sure that we’d also love their beauty products. Knowing how many times that my daughter has smeared her nail polish before it was dry I figured that the up & up Nail Polish Drying Spray would be a great addition to the gift bag.
The drying spray helps the polish dry faster and leaves a great shine after it’s applied. Also knowing how many times we have “accidentally” spilled nail polish remover we put in the up & up Dispenser Pump. You fill the pump with remover then just use a cotton ball on the top to “pump” the remover out. No more tipping the bottle and potentially spilling the nail polish remover.
I designed the tags for the nail polish in 2 different sizes, one size that’s perfect to attach to a large gift bag, and a smaller size that’s just right for a single bottle of nail polish. I think this little size makes for a really fun “thinking of you” gift not just for a teen, I know a lot of adults that would love it too.
If you’d like to make your own little nail polish gifts, you can download the large and the small gift tags over on my templates page. and….
