The Stoc-Ken Stuffers were designed by Ken Downing for Le Métier de Beauté. This year, Ken is spreading a little holiday cheer with two sets of Le Métier de Beauté metallic mini-sized nail lacquers. Ken's Stocking Stuffers ($32 for a set of four) in Merry Metallics and All That Glitters offer a total of eight little lacquers designed to make you and your friends shine.
"Shimmer and shine are a passion of mine," said Downing. "I've taken my love for all that glitters and injected brilliant color to create a playful collection of holiday nail lacquers."
Merry Metallics consists of four festive hues.
- Plum Puddin' - rich plum spun with sheer silver
- Tarnished Silver - moonlit platinum
- Lamé Entertain You - shimmering copper with silver undertones
- Red-E and Waiting - sheer red with metallic gold undertones
I swatched in the order listed above and took my photos in late-afternoon sun. These shades might not be the first shades that come to mind for Christmas - with the exception of the brilliant red - but they are stunning for any time of year. Metallic without being glittery, they are elegant and flattering. I'm smitten with Tarnished Silver.
Le Métier de Beauté Stoc-Ken Stuffers are exclusive to Neiman Marcus. These little darlings will blow out of the stores, so call to purchase yours now. A friend who loves nail colors will be delighted to find one under the tree, so make sure to buy at least one for you and one for "them."
