There’s always one member of the squad who has a perfect mani. Like how? How can you paint with your less dominant hand? How is your polish never chipped, do you even use your hands? Like, ever?

This gift guide is for the nail art connoisseur in your life, who knows their way around a polish, lacquer, at-home gel, watercolor nail technique, and decal.

Here’s a round-up of incredible nail gift ideas that will have your BFF ready for the new year. Hopefully, in return, your bestie can treat you to a mani on the next girl’s night in or maybe they can share their nail secrets because, seriously, we need our polish to be on point come 2017!

Actually, no. Makeup brushes and nail art brushes aren’t quite the same. This set by Diamond Cosmetics is about six bucks, which means that’s about a dollar each!


18 shades plus exclusives? Hopefully, you can finesse your BFF into “lending” you one of the polishes after she unwraps this set!


For some, this would be over-the-top and total overkill. For others, it’s one step closer toward an in-home nail salon, aka paradise.


Everything you need for a stellar mani at home. The LED light: epic.

Not sure which shade to gift? Easy, everyone loves a classic nude or a pale pink. This set by Deborah Lippman is so Instagrammable it hurts. Naked manis, anyone?


For the nail art connoisseur who cares about nail care, gift them with this cuticle cream. This is created with beeswax, almond oil, and chamomile.

See anything for your nail art obsessed friend or are you that friend, and you’ve been totally shopping for yourself this entire time?
