teen nail kit - holiday gift guide

If you’re a mom of a teenage girl, you probably know what it feels like when they start raiding your beauty stash. It started out with ‘borrowing’ a few things and has now grown into full blown stealing! One of the things I’m constantly having to hunt down is my nail polish stuff…grrr! So, with the holiday season coming up, I’ve put together a list of items to create a Teen Nail Kit or to use as a Holiday Gift Guide.

Teen Nail Kit

For convenience, all of these items can be purchased at Ulta stores or Amazon. If ordering online, remember to shop through Ebates this holiday season and get money back for shopping. First time members that sign-up before December 31, 2017 will receive a $10 bonus after their first qualifying purchase through Ebates!

  1. These are great! I’ve been searching for that liquid latex stuff but because I didn’t know what it was called, my Google searches were returning some weird and unrelated stuff. Now I can finally get some! Thanks so much for the awesome gift guide (and link to the skin protector)!
