Where’s my #ManiFam at?! This gift guide is for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ask me a question about clothes or makeup and I’ll help you out. Ask me anything manicure-related and I GOT YOU! If you have a nail polish enthusiast in your life or someone who just loves keeping their nails looking 100%…. you’re bound to find the perfect gift for them in this post!

1. Holiday Sets

This time of year all of the major brands roll out their holiday polishes. They’re often limited edition so odds are, the mani-lover in your life probably hasn’t got their hands on them yet (no pun intended)! I love that most are sold in mini gift sets – more bang for your buck. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Mani Mug

Who doesn’t love a good mug?! They make great conversation pieces; they represent your hobbies, your travels, and your favorite things! Pair this with their AM beverage of choice for a fab way to start the day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย Find it on Etsy for under $15.

3. Travel Sized Manicure Kit

These are great because even if you already have one, it’s nice to receive a back up! Keep a kit at home, in your purse, or in the car. There’s nothing worse than breaking a nail and not having a file handy. I prefer sets that include a cuticle clipper (hang nails are probably worse than broken ones TBH). Find this gorgeous gold setย here!ย And some other optionsย here, here, andย ย here! (all under $12)!


4. Christian Louboutin Nail Polish

If you want a gift that WOWS, this is it. Add a CL bottle to someones collection and watch them weep! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Product aside, the bottle is a work of art in its own right. They have a variety of colors available, but they launched in 2014 with their signature rouge which is not only the most iconic shade, but a great holiday polish as well. Find it here!


5. Nail Polish Organizer

I have the table topper rack and love it; it holds up to 60 polishes (depending on their size) and is great for displaying your favorite bottles! If you have someone with a much larger collection, the shelves that you can mount on the walls are amazing! This one holds up to 102 bottles.

6. Hand Repair Kit

Tis the season for dry hands and nails, but it doesn’t have to be. This Hand Repair Set from Burt’s Bees includes their Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (an old fave of mine), Almond & Milk Hand Cream, and Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream – all of which are sure to keep your nails, cuticles, and hands super soft and incredibly hydrated!

7. Phone Case

How fun is this?! Phone cases are used as accessories these days; they’re part of your outfit, part of your vibe, they’re essentially an extension of you. I used to have a case with a bottle of red Chanel polish on it which I thought was pretty cool… but this cover is 10X cooler! If you’re looking for something a little less sparkly, take a peek at this one and this one!

8. DIY Gel Kit

It’s so nice to be able to do your own nails at home – and I promise you, it’s much easier thank you’d think! If someone does not have a gel kit yet, this is a great option! I personally prefer all things Gelish – I exclusively use their products and recommend them often. This is a great starter kit!

9. Pedi Helper

We cant forget the feet! No matter how old, flexible or skilled you are, it’s hard to paint your own toes. This little stand looks like a helpful tool for those at-home pedis! The best part? It folds up for easy storage.

10. Pretty Prints

I LOVE the stacked bottlesย // You can customize this one with their nameย // What’s more fab than a bottle of pink Chanel polish?!ย // Bestย quote ever! ๐Ÿ™‚

I adore prints! They’re cute, they’re fun, and are something most people wouldn’t think to buy for themselves. Leave it on your desk, hang it in the bathroom, or frame it to display in your closet! If you need a last minute gift, many of these are downloadable so can you print them right at home. What I love most about the prints above is that by purchasing one, you’ll be supporting both an artist and a small business!

I hope you found a little inspo for the mani lover in your life. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know if you have any other gift ideas in the comments.

    • Right?! I’d take it all haha. And I’ve actually never tried their polishes, but they’re so cute & I hear nothing but wonderful things! XO

  1. Hi Amanda!

    I was wondering if you had any recommendations on a budget- friendly top coat that dries quickly/strengthens your nails and won’t leave your nails tacky? If I paint them before bed they always have little marks in them in the morning!

    • I think the best topcoat is the Essie Gel Setter! It’s SO good. Dries very quickly, remains shiny for days, and I find it has worn just as long as actual gel. It’s a bit pricer ($10-$11/bottle), but worth every penny! Another great option is the ONM Out the Door – you can find it at CVS or Sally’s Beauty, it dries nearly instantly & one bottle lasts forever. ๐Ÿ™‚
