A gift of self-care, like a manicure, is always a win. Whether you're treating yourself, your mom, or your best friend, it's safe to say that a little meaningful me time goes a long way, and allows you to express yourself. A manicure is your own personal art gallery on your fingers, and if you're looking for a feel-good activity to do while also getting a little creative expression out, why not consider the DIY nail kit?
Sure, back in the day a Dopp kit with stainless-steel nail clippers might have been a boring gift, but today, with the way nail art is blowing up, manicure sets and press-on nails are both chic and useful — with sharp trimmers, cuticle oil, topcoat, and an emery board, all held inside a carrying case that you won't want to hide inside a bathroom cabinet.
Ahead, we've gathered some of the best manicure kits and press-on nails money can buy to bring the nail salon experience to your home.
