Just in time for Christmas, French fashion house Balmain have made their surprising first foray into beauty with a four piece nail couture collection gift box. The limited edition collection, which is on sale exclusively at, costs £40 and features four different shades, all of which come wrapped up in a luxurious gift box that belongs under a Christmas tree!

The box includes a classic red (very festive!), a stunning dark black (for that cocktail party) and a beautiful nude (perfect for a simple manicure) and also features a sheer top coat to finish off your desired shade.  Considering Balmain’s usually steep womenswear prices – prepare to drop thousands for anything other than a t-shirt –  the gift box isn’t as exorbitantly priced as other luxurious cosmetic products and makes for the perfect gift for any die-hard fashion or beauty fan who wants to pamper themselves with designer nails. According to Vogue, the products are even free from dangerous chemicals and have a beautiful matt finish if the top coat is used:

Free of potentially harmful toluene, formaldehyde and camphor, the polishes have a gloss finish which can instantly be transformed with the aforementioned top coat for a chic, velvety matt effect.
