Best Non Toxic Nail Salon in Houston

‘Tis the season for festive food, presents, and, if you’re like us, countless nail inspo pictures on Instagram from bloggers and makeup artists who are pulling out all the stops for their holiday parties. While we’ve been eyeing a mini chrome twist for a while, a brand named Blue Tips has caught our eye for a new variety that will have us the envy of all our fancy friends on New Year’s Eve. Called, simply, Instant Nails, these eyelash-stretching nails were created to be super dramatic and are perfect for when you want to make a statement with your get-ups this holiday season.

Described as “one of the most striking beauty products we’ve seen yet,” Instant Nails transform when you open the package and “all of the tiny dots become bigger and bolder in color.” Every single nail in this line gets the lash-enhancing treatment, and each one contains so much movement in its nails that they stretch and “wrap around the nail with more than a million tiny, blue [oil] rods to create a lashes-stretching effect.”

To buy Instant Nails at Sephora, you’ll have to look further than our favorite gift guide that’s in your inbox now — you’ll have to head to Sephora on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 to score your lotion-colored $14.99 pixies, buns, and blocks, while other holiday-beauty products in our guide are not yet available.
