Essie’s Nail Color 2013 Holiday Gift Set – The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Target… the place for stocking stuffers!

My favorite was the set-up in the beauty section.About Town - Target - Essie Gift Set jpg

Check out Essie’s Nail Color 2013 Holiday Gift Set.

It’s five mini nail polishes in perfectly classic colors:

Ballet Slippers (classic pale pink), Chinchilly (a sleek granite gray), Turquoise & Caicos (tropical aqua), Forever Yummy (a tango red), and one of my favorites, Wicked (a dark, sinister red).*
