I feel like this gift guide needs almost no introduction, because you all know how much we love nail art here at The Gloss. Basically, the reason for this post is because we’re trying to gently nudge you into sending us all presents. Is it selfish? Yeah. Do we care? No. And that, my friends, is what the holiday season is all about.

Read on for 15 gifts that are perfect for every manicure maven out there:

1. Formula X Bottle Service Set (Sephora, $36.50)

You’ve seen this on our gift guides before, but could you really get tired of looking at this adorable packaging? I got this as a gift myself, and the colors are just fantastic.

2. Julep Birthstone Collection (Julep, $98)

Julep is always on the pricier side of things, but their polish really is insanely high-quality. Plus, no one should ever feel restricted to their own birthstone.

3. alice + olivia x Nails Inc Nail Polish (alice + olivia, $25)

This collection has one of my favorite glitter nail polishes of all time. It’s not too gritty, and it’s buildable without leaving your nails feeling like you’ve just failed at creating bubble nails. Bonus points if you figure out how to decorate each nail with the alice + olivia logo.

4. Try It On Signature Bundle (Jamberry, $76.50)

This is perfect for the girl who’s always wanted to try nail wraps but never knew where to start. The kit includes four sets of nail wraps (each of which equates to several manicures), the Jamberry Application Kit, and their mini heater. You’ll be nail wrap expert in no time!

5. butter LONDON ‘Colour Hardware’ Nail Art Tool Kit (Nordstrom, $30)

Everyone starts off as a nail art beginning, so why not give your friend all the tools she needs to become a full-blown expert? The kit comes with a nail file, double-ended dotting tool, long and short striping brushes, a clean-up brush (it’s what makes at-home manis look professional!), and an ombre brush.

6. Ciate London Mini Mani Month (Sephora, $59)

Deborah Lippmann is about as good as you can get when it comes to at-home manicures, and considering a polish normally retails for about $20, this set is an amazing value.

8. Nail Polish Mug (Etsy, $13.99)

This entire set is perfect for the holidays, and if I don’t see at least 10 of you wear that colored glitter on New Year’s Eve, I’ll be very disappointed.

Great nails start with great hands and cuticles, and this holiday-scented hand cream set will take good care of you.

12. OPI Starlight Shimmers & Glitters Nail Lacquer Collection (Ulta, $9.50 each)


These two polishes are part of OPI’s newest Starlight collection, and glitter is always festive.

Bring this a thank-you gift for the hostess of your holiday party, and she’ll be the happiest lady in the land. Especially if that lady is me.

Instead of letting your friend store her polish in a bag or away in her closet, give her a riser that allows her to show off her collection with pride.

15. Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Portable Starter Kit (Ulta, $64.99)

I’m not a big gel manicure fan for a variety of reasons, but tons of people complain about the cost and the length of time you sit in the salon to get one done. This kit will cut down on cost and time.
