Stuff My Stocking VII
By: Gigi Anders
Festivus feet need demand attention. Our goals are soles as tender as pounded veal cutlets and perfectly pedicured toenails.
To get there, we begin with Bliss Foot Patrol Cream ($18). Its three-pronged arsenal includes alpha hydroxy and salicylic acids to slough away dry, dead skin cells; whole leaf aloe to soften hard skin and clear away cuticles; and Festivus-appropriate cooling peppermint to stimulate and refresh tired toes. Use it every day after bathing.
Then comes Twinkle Toes Time. Yay! Zoya’s Enchanted Full Collection Sampler ($60), a gorgeous sextet of four “PixieDust” hues and two holographics.
The PixieDusts include: Elphie, a true emerald with a sugary green sparkle in the exclusive Zoya PixieDust Matte Sparkle formula (sounds paradoxical but trust me, it’s beautiful); Lorna, a deep, rich raspberry shot with a sugary sparkle; Alice, a violetty-lavendery hue with magenta and blue sparkles; and Waverly, a brilliantly intense sapphire with blue sparkles. For classic shine with a different kind of finish, there’s Olivera, a color-flip metallic with an indigo base and a green and purple shift (to die for, but then again, they all are); and Saint, another color-flip metallic, this one with a periwinkle base and magenta shift.
Devastating. This set will be hard to give away, so you may want to buy two. Or three. (Sorry. I know I’m a pusher. But these are freakin’ fantabulous.)
