I have an affinity for fingerless gloves — whether they're leather ones with zippers, studs, and buckles; wool pieces with ribbed wrist bands and frayed edges at the fingertips; warm and fuzzy thanks to their angora fabrication; or simple, understated, and refined cashmere gloves. My penchant for fingerless gloves could be the result of my urban surroundings and the fact that, like most self-starters living in the digital age, I'm always tapping on the keypad of my mobile phone so I can promptly respond to e-mails, check the news, and connect with readers and fans via Twitter (follow me at @sickathanavg). And, while some companies have released touchscreen gloves, these are generally lacking in terms of their style quotient. For now, then, I'll stick with my fingerless gloves, which have the added benefit of infusing a youthful, punk-like edge to any ensemble
If you share my sentiment in regards to fingerless gloves, then you'll appreciate the new collaboration between luxury cashmere brand White + Warren and beauty giant Sally Hansen. For a limited time, when you purchase a pair of White + Warren Fingerless Gloves online (down to $40 from $95 at WhiteandWarren.com), you'll get a complimentary Sally Hansen Manicure Set so that you can keep cuticles smooth, hands soft and silky, nails perfectly shaped, and coated in a classic color.
The Sally Hansen Manicure Kit (pictured above) includes the following products: a Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Coarse Nail Board (which retails for $2.67 at Drugstore.com); a bottle of Nailgrowth Miracle Serum ($9.15 at Drugstore.com and other food and drug retailers), a strengthening peptide serum treatment designed for daily use and fortified with biotin, a B-complex vitamin that fortifies thin and brittle nails, as well as lemon peel oil, a common ingredient for conditioning cuticles and nails; a bottle of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish in Right Said Red ($7 at mass food and drug retailers, including Drugstore.com), a classic Minnie Mouse-worthy red lacquer that's amazingly shiny, long-wearing, and chip resistant; and a tube of Sally Hansen Dry Chapped Hand Creme ($5.50 at Drugstore.com), a new lotion that moisturizes hands and provides some relief for those with chapped or cracked skin, brittle nails and rough cuticles thanks to the incorporation of softening, conditioning shea butter; safflower seed oil, which helps the skin retain moisture; and soybean oil, which boasts wound healing properties and also gives the skin a nice smooth sensation.
When you purchase a pair of 100% cashmere fingerless gloves from White + Warren (available in Black, Navy, Midnight Teal, Citron, Lilac, Grey Frost, and Fossil Heather), then, you'll also be receiving nearly $30 worth of hand care products. And considering that the gloves are over 50% off right now, you'll actually be getting a combined value of $120 for your $40 purchase.
With this deal, your hands are, well, in the right hands.
