12 Days of Beautiful Gifts: Day 6 - Nifty Nails

More than anything, I appreciate any beauty gift intended for my nails. Maybe it's because I'm just starting to explore this beauty category, or there are few misses compared to other beauty items. For the most part, nail products are fairly universal. Meaning...you don't have to worry about picking the wrong size, formula, etc. Today's post features a few such gift ideas to get you inspired.

Tweezerman Petite Manicure Set: Well crafted, reliable nail tools are hard to find. This set will please any girl who wants to take her manicure to the next level. It features a revolutionary trimmer that handles like a tweezer, for perfect control while in use; a cuticle pusher combined with a nail cleaner; and a file to smooth and shape nails. All three tools are housed in a compact case that is perfect for home or travel use. It's available at Sephora and is $20.00.

NARS Precious Mini Holiday Set: I love the range of colors in this set of minis. They're modern and will carry you from season to season. Add a bottle of good quality nail polish remover and a glass nail file (see previous post), and this gift will score bonus points! The NARS polish set is available at Nordstrom for $30.00.


Gift Certificate for CND Shellac Nail Service: One of this year's nail innovations is CND's Shellac system. It features a base coat, color coat, and top coat that are applied by trained nail technicians in select salons. Together with a UV Lamp, they comprise a breakthrough in resilient color that remains flawless for two weeks and removes in 10 minutes. It's an amazing service that I've purchased several times at my local day spa. Each time I'm blown away at how well the product lasts without any damage to my nails. Shellac is ideal for special occasions or vacations where you don't want to be bothered with bringing nail polish and remover. A gift certificate for a Shellac service is sure to please the ladies on your holiday gift list. Check out the company's salon selector to find a local salon in your area. Prices vary for Shellac. (I've paid approximately $25-30 for this service in my area.)

The Body Shop Peppermint Foot Mini Gift Set: I fell in love with The Body Shop's Peppermint Foot Lotion nearly 20 years ago and it is still is one of my favorite all-time products. This functional set includes a mini-sized peppermint lotion plus:
  • 1.75 oz Mini Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak
  • Mini Foot-Shaped Toe Dividers x2
  • Mini File A Foot
  • Nail Clippers
  • Fabric pouch
It's on sale now for $12.60 (regularly $18.00) at The Body Shop
