Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Each day this month, we’ll unveil our 25 top gifts to buy in Philly this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.)
Nail polish is probably one of the most giftable items around: there are no sizes to guesstimate, it looks good on everyone, and it’s wallet-friendly. To elevate it from stocking stuffer to a gift good enough to stand on its own, opt for Deborah Lippmann’s Big Bang set: a collection of 12 colors, from a pale pink-y nude to a shimmery emerald. Most mani-happy women know Lippmann for her posh polishes, but if your younger giftees still need more convincing, there’s this: Lippmann’s a celebrity manicurist who has designed nail polishes for Lena Dunham, Gwyneth Paltrow and, yes, Lady Gaga.
The Details: Deborah Lippmann Big Bang nail polish set, $78 at Bluemercury, 1707 Walnut Street, Rittenhouse; 3603 Walnut Street, West Philly; 100 East Lancaster Avenue, Wayne; Suburban Square, 42 St. James Place, Ardmore; 300 Route 73 South, Marlton; Promenade at Sagemore, 500 Route 73 South, Marlton.
Give to: Your teenage daughter/niece who hates everything.
