LVX 2013 Holiday Collection is a trio of luxe, vegan nail lacquer. As a brand, LVX is inspired by runway fashion trends and blends the hottest colors of the season into its unique color collections. The formula is non-toxic, long-lasting, chip-resistant and streak free. LVX lacquers are super shiny and heavily pigmented.  To stay on trend, the brand creates four custom palettes a year. The holiday trio is $36 and available at shoplvx.com. Through Dec. 31, 20 percent of proceeds will be donated to PETA.




Mariah Carey Holiday is a collaboration with OPI of 18 limited edition holiday nail lacquers inspired by the international superstar. The seasonal promotion includes an assortment of red, burgundy, maroon and chocolate brown hues, along with glittery gold, bronze and pearl shades. The collection also features six new Liquid Sand lacquers that should always be worn without a top coat, ranging from icy blue to frosted pink to sparkling graphite. Each of the lacquer shades has a kitschy name like "Meet Me at Midnight," and showcases OPI's groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle. Each polish is $9.00, and available at Ulta and Amazon.com.



Nicole by OPI offers two new gift sets inspired by actress and singer Selena Gomez--perfect for the tween on your Christmas shopping list. Each gift set includes a Selena Gomez lacquer plus a free mini bottle of silver Gumdrops, a limited edition matte textured shade only available in these sets. Gift set number one includes Pretty in Plum (a picture-perfect purple) and the second gift set includes Scarlett (a shimmery red-violet). These limited-edition sets are just $7.99 each and available at CVS, Kmart and Duane Reade locations.
