Le Metier de Beaute Holiday 2011 StocKen Stuffers from Ken Downing

The upcoming holiday nail lacquer collections from Le Metier de Beaute finally have me feeling a little festive. I’ve been resisting being charmed by any of the 2011 Holiday offerings so far but these sets are just too cute to resist!

I love the attention to detail with these sets and they would make the perfect gift for any beauty lover on your list. Or if you’re anything like me you will be making sure to pick them up for yourself!!!

From Le Metier de Beaute:

‘Tis the season for decadent holiday feasts and fêtes – ones we look forward to with both anticipation and trepidation. Just thinking what to wear and what to gift is enough to loose some beauty sleep…
Leave it to Neiman Marcus’ Fashion Director Ken Downing to put the glam and glimmer back in the holiday season. With his latest collaboration with Le Métier de Beauté, two irresistible sets of four mini nail lacquers will bring the glitz and glamour right to your fingertips.

“Perfect to give, even more fun to get. Move over Santa; style is coming to town!”
says Mr. Downing.
Mr. Downing curated the essential eight shades for the season and paired them with glimmering gold and silver ornamental leaves. The one of a kind gilded Aspen leaves, carefully hand selected and inspected for their flawless beauty, shape, and size – no two are the same, have been coated in 24K Gold or Fine Silver using an electroplating process that retains the shape and vein patterns of each unique leaf.

Priced right at $32.00 a set, it’s the perfect gift for the hostess with the mostess, the girl who has everything and even your third cousin twice removed that always shows up for the seasonal get together.

Mr. Downing says he aimed to spread holiday cheer with this collaboration and that each set was specifically designed to glam up the holiday madness.“Shimmer and shine are a passion of mine!” says Downing. “I’ve taken my love for all that glitters and injected brilliant color to create a playful collection of holiday nail lacquers.”

  • Spruce it Up – a shimming evergreen
  • Hot to Trot – a juicy red cherry with silver undertones
  • Midnight Heron – a deep sapphire flecked with subtle shimmer
  • All That Glitters – a sheer gold with metallic shine

  • Plum Puddin’ – a rich plum spun with sheer silver
  • Red/E and Waiting – a sheer red with metallic gold undertones
  • Tarnished Silver – a moonlit platinum
  • Lamé Entertain You – a shimmering copper with silver undertones.


The one of a kind leaf ornaments included with each glamorous nail lacquer collection sparkle with impeccable detail. They’re made with a real Aspen leaf that has been dried and coated in 24K Gold or Fine Silver using an electroplating process that retains the shape and vein patterns of each unique leaf. Each lacquer glides on smoothly with a 220 bristle flat blush specifically designed for easy application. And you can wear these guilt free knowing that the formula is “3 free” without formaldehyde, toluene, or dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and Prop 65 compliant. 

Ken Downing’s StocKen Stuffers are expected in store November 2011 and are exclusive to Neiman Marcus stores and NeimanMarcus.com.
