I have two tween girls. One of them is rapidly approaching teen status. The two of them are definitely at different stages — one a tom boy, the other a girly girl. The Bright Stripes brand appeals to both of them!
Bright Stripes was designed for girls in those in between years from little girl to teenager when exploration and expression become important. Their Spa*rkle line offers spa and beauty kits in a rainbow of colors to allow girls to explore their creativity, feel good about themselves and have some fun!
My youngest (the tom boy) isn’t into makeup or nail polish. At. All. But she does have long beautiful hair that she’s always asking to add some fun colors to. The Spa*rkle Hair Chalk Pastels and Barrettes Set was perfect for her! While she wasn’t really into the cute little star shaped barrettes that it came with, she was all over the hair chalk!
The pastels allow you to easily add a touch of color to a few strands of hair. We used a book with a piece of paper on top underneath the strand of hair that we were coloring to give us a more firm base to color onto. Parker chose blue and green. Once we got the color on we used the tiny comb that the set comes with to comb it through the strand and smooth it out.
The kit includes six colors, all of which wash out easily with shampoo. The color is somewhat buildable so you can go more subtle or more bold depending on your preference. Parker is subtle and didn’t want a ton of color — she got what she wanted and loved how it came out.
My older daughter loves just about anything hair, makeup or nail related. The Spa*rkle Dual-Top Nail Pens with a Mermaid Glitter Theme were right up her alley and to be honest, mine too! I love nail art and I thought this set was really cool! It comes with four fun shades of polish in a dual ended tube. One side has a traditional brush so you can paint on a base color. The other end has a detail tip that makes it easy to make your own detailed designs. The kit also comes with 50 mermaid themed nail art stickers and a nail file.
McKinley knows exactly what she wants. She prefers a white base on her nails so she used some of her own polish for that. She tried the epoxy stickers that can be colored in like stained glass with the fine tip end but she decided those weren’t for her either. That’s the cool thing about this kit though. You can do so much with just the nail pens! The options are endless! You can even sprinkle a bit of biodegradable glitter that is included in the kit on to your nails when they are still wet for a sparkly effect.
Both of these kits retail for $17.99, a bargain in my opinion! These would make great birthday gifts or would be really fun to share with girlfriends on a sleepover or spa date! You can find out more at www.brightstripes.com.
