Elf Necessary Nails Holiday 2012

The elf holiday collection this year features a new 15 piece nail set called Necessary Nails. It contains 15 tiny bottles of polish in various finishes and colors. They are all a quick-dry formula and contain vitamin E for nail strength.

Could this be the perfect set for someone on your list? At $15.00 it’s a great price!

Elf Holiday 2012 Nail Polish

These polishes don’t have names so bear with me here. Also I didn’t swatch one of them (the pinky/taupe creme in the second bottle pic on the left above) because the cap would NOT open!

On my pointer finger is a medium/deep brown taupe creme.

On my middle finger is a gold glitter featuring micro gold glitter and small gold hex glitter in a clear base.

On my ring finger is a frosty/metallic warm gold.

On my pinky is an iridescent red/orange glitter (better pic coming below)

On my ring is a medium warm red creme.

On my pinky is a medium pinkish/taupe creme.

And here are the best four!

On my middle is a emerald green glitter with green & gold sparkles.

On my pointer & ring is a jet black creme.

On my middle and pinky is a dark charcoal grey with multi-colored shimmer.

Here I added the gold glitter on my pointer over the black and the iridescent red/orange glitter on my middle finger over black.

Nearly all of these were just two coats with one or two exceptions needing three coats. For the price, you get fairly decent polish and a wide variety. I think this is perfect for someone younger just getting into nail polish.

Availability: Target only.

Pricing: $15.00.
