Pinned This, Made That: Nail Polish Favors

So apparently I have an obsession with finger nail polish.  The funny thing though - you will never find it on my fingers!  Anyone that knows me knows I've been a nail biter since.... well.... the day I was born!  It's a nasty, ugly, disgusting habit, but I just can't stop, won't stop.  My toe nails always have a color on them, but my finger nails - well they are that ugly that even a little hot pink or coral couldn't make them look any better. 

My obsession goes beyond painting my toes - I'm obsessed with nail polish party favors!  Last year I gave out nail polish as party favors 2 times in 4 months, so I'm sure girls who come to events at my house are catching onto me, but I just can't help it!  There are so many cute ways to present it!


 Boy oh Boy! Blue Nail Polish Party Favors for a "Real Housewives Baby Shower"



This year we actually hosted all 5 of our Christmases (my immediate family, mom's side, dad's side, mother-in-law, father-in-law) at our house this year, so what kind of hostess would I be if I didn't have a little gift for each of my favorite ladies?!  I purchased 15 different nail polishes and had all ladies pick out a color once they arrived.  Fun little surprise to receive ... and to give!

I truly appreciate some Essie or Opi on my nails, but I can't justify coughing up $8 on each party favor when you have 15-20 to pass out, so I stumbled upon an awesome alternative... Sinful Colors.  They have a TON of fun colors (I think I found 10 different blues when I was looking for a boy baby shower) and you can't beat the $1.99 price tag!  Plus, the bottles look nicer than Wet & Wild or other discount nail polishes. $2 for a party favor is practical and perfectly acceptable!  My local Walgreens and Walmart both carry Sinful Colors, but I am sure you can find them elsewhere.

Here are some of my other favorite ways to give nail polish as party favors - can't wait to see what I do for 2013! :)

  1. How did you make the "Boy Oh Boy" tags? Did you buy them somewhere?
