Nail gifts can have a dual-purpose. Some of the gifts come in large sets which are perfect for holiday gift exchanges, while others are smaller and perfect for stocking stuffers or ‘thank you’ gifts. No matter what size the gift, nail-inspired gift sets are perfect for holiday giving.
If you have a diehard nail fanatic on your holiday list then this set may just knock their socks off, which will expose their beautifully pedicured toes. Each of the 18 long-lasting shades will keep her happy and occupied for at least a couple weeks. Of course if you have a couple of nail polish fanatics on your list you could always break the set up and create your own beauty bundle gift. That also means that you’ll have to maintain control and not hoard the set for yourself first.
Nail art is hot, but most of us are afraid to try it at-home. This nail art kit from Sephora will easily dampen those fears while lifting your loved ones’ holiday spirits. The set comes with three nail colors in black, glittery silver and gold foil as well as 5 easy-to-use stencils and a floral rhinestone wheel in 12 different colors. Basically this set is perfect for anyone on your list from young to old, and you’ll be loved even more once they dive in and bling out their nails. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a free manicure out of the deal as well.
We fell in love with Nails Inc. when we tested their magnetic nail polish, but now we’re even more head-over-heals for the brand thanks to their Old Vic Collection. The pair of nail lacquers doesn’t appear too impressive alone, but once you apply the teal black polish followed by the Overglaze top coat your nails will go from so-so to total glam. The result is a stunning and sparkly blue tone that will wow everyone at this season’s parties. And who will your friend have to thank for fabulous and trendy nails? Well you, of course, and perhaps Nails Inc. too.
If you have a Gleek or Gleenager on your holiday list this year why not add a little more Glee to their life with the GLEE Chic Prints by OPI? It’s the easy to use and long-lasting nail patches that everyone loves, but with a little inspiration from GLEE. They are available in gold stars, music notes and navy with white polka dots. At $15 each you could snag all three and really score some points this year, plus the built-in nail art will have your giftee donning salon look-alike nails in no time.
If the name isn’t cute enough just wait until you hear what’s inside. This must-have hand loving holiday set will give that certain nail fanatic on your holiday list Bliss Spa’s world famous High Intensity Hand Cream and a pair of gel-lined glamour gloves. If you haven’t tried Bliss Spa products, they are a must, and so are their sister products made by Soap and Glory. All your recipient has to do is slather on the hand cream, put on the gloves, and then sit back and relax while they achieve super soft and subtle hands. Of course they can also use the gloves alone, but with winter breathing down our neck lots of moisture will be readily welcomed by the holidays.
Essie always offers really hot and trendy colors for each season, and their winter 2011 shades offer nothing less than that. This set was inspired by the beauty of precious gemstones, so your giftee will adorn beautifully gem-like nails at each holiday celebration. The set comes in a cute cube with little gem colors all around, and inside she’ll find a pale gray shade, a hot ruby shade, a lavender amethyst shade and a dark sapphire hue. Each one is a hot shade for winter, which will inspire warm thanks from that special someone on your holiday list.
