8 Chic Nail Sets That Make Holiday Gifting A No-Brainer

Try to name a more foolproof present to gift your sister-in-law or your co-worker at the impending Zoom White Elephant exchange (someone you know, but not all that well) than a mani-pedi. Everyone needs a little TLC to get through the end of 2020, but instead of taking the easy route — a gift card to a local nail salon that they'll drain in a single (socially-distant) appointment — give the gift of glossy, polished nails for all of 2021.

A curated nail polish set — filled with a rainbow of shiny glass bottles — is one of the most underrated holiday gifts. Since it doesn't depend on skin texture or hair type, anyone on your list who loves beauty will squeal when they open it. Plus, they'll think of you every time they look down at their shiny fingernails typing away at the keyboard.


Ahead, we're sharing the most adorable nail polish gift sets on the market this season to help you cross off a few names on your holiday shopping list early.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
