Sure it’s mini mani Monday, but our more pressing concern is that it’s T-9 days until Christmas and we’re nowhere near fully prepared. If you’re in the same boat as us, you’re probably too busy racking your brain for stocking stuffer ideas to sacrifice an hour to salon time tonight.
Never fear, we’ve got you covered on both fronts. (Well, with a little help from supermodel Coco Rocha.) The fashion icon’s favorite manicure set, a chalkboard nail art kit from Ciate ($25), makes the perfect gift for any little beauty queen on your list. The box comes equipped with two shades of chalkboard polish and four “chalk” pens of various colors. All you have to do is help your little one apply her base coat, then let her imagination run wild with the pens. It’s the perfect afternoon activity to keep the kiddos out of your hair while you clean up the pile of wrapping paper and get started on Christmas dinner. Plus, the classroom-friendly theme makes this a great heading-back-to-school manicure, which the kids will be doing come the second of January.
