* Contains products previously provided for review

Canadian Nail Lover Holiday Gift Guide 2015

The holidays are just around the corner and to help you figure out what to buy for those nail lovers in your life I'm here with my 2015 Nail Gift Guide! If you want you can check out my guide from 2014 first, and when you're done you can take a peek under the cut to see what I'm suggesting this year! Items are listed in price from lowest to highest, so you can choose what fits your budget. :)

Please note all prices are in CAD and rounded to the nearest dollar. 


Nail Vinyls from Glam My Mani *

Christmas Gift Guide with Nail Vinyls from Glam My Mani

Nail Vinyls from Glam My Mani
Price
: $7 per sheet (+ Canadian shipping FREE)
Availability: Nail Polish Canada
Good for
: Anyone with a bit of knowledge/experience with nail art or clever beginners. 

I love a good nail vinyl. These were on my list last year too (though it was a different brand) and I still stick by them as the perfect gift. You can get a bunch and give them to someone as a larger gift or just get one or two for the perfect stocking stuffer. :) All your gift-ee has to do is peel them off the sheet, put them on the nail, paint over them and pull them off. And ta-da, easy as pie nail art!



OPI Nail Envy Strength in Colour

Christmas Gift Guide with OPI Nail Envy Strength in Colour

OPI Nail Envy Strength in Colour 
Price
: $20 (+ Canadian Shipping $3)
Availability: Nail Polish Canada
Good for: People who want strong nails with a hint of tint. 

These are a colourized version of OPI's popular strengthening treatment, perfect for people who want to build up their nails but don't want to have a plain old clear treatment. And to make it even better there are 4 different shades available - Hawaiian Orchid, Samoan Sand, Bubble Bath (pictured above) and Pink to Envy.



Nail Files by Mont Bleu *

Christmas Gift Guide with Nail Files by Mont Bleu
2 pc Design Glassware Nail File Set from Mont Bleu
Price: $22 (+ Canadian Shipping: $4.26 or FREE with $50+ order)
Availability: Design Glassware by Mont Bleu
Good for: Anyone who likes to take care of their nails and likes glittery, pretty things

I can't say enough good things about these Czech tempered glass files from Mont Bleu. They hand decorate each file with Swarovski Elements crystals and they're easily cleaned by running them under water. I'm suggesting this two piece set since it makes a great stand-alone gift, but you can find a lot of other options (both more and less expensive) on their site. I've reviewed them before here and have heard nothing but great things from bloggers, friends and family who have tried them. They're a bit pricey but definitely worth the money!



MoYou London Starter Kit

Christmas Gift Guide with MoYou London Starter Kit
MoYou London Starter Kit 
Price
: $27 (+ Standard Shipping to Canada $11)
Availability: MoYou London
Good for: Experienced artists who wants to expand their collection of stamping polishes and plates, or clever beginners who want to try their hand at it for the first time. 

MoYou is one of my favourite brands for stamping plates and they recently released these starter kits - sets with a stamping plate, a stamping polish, a scraper and one of their rectangular stampers. I own over a dozen MoYou London plates, and the one I have pictured above (from The Origami Collection) is just one of many sets and plates available. They also frequently have free shipping promos, so if you don't want to pay $11+ for shipping just wait a bit and follow them on facebook to watch for sales.



Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday 2015 Collection

Christmas Gift Guide with the Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday 2015 Collection

Zoya Matte Velvet Holiday Collection 
Price: $64 (+ Canadian Shipping FREE)
Availability: Nail Polish Canada
Good for: Anyone who loves a good matte finish nail polish.

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for a matte polish. The ones that Zoya released this year stole my heart, and they're one of the few full collections I'm suggesting picking up for someone this year. There's a great variety of polishes in this set, though if you want to just pick up one or two you can do that too for $11.75 each.



Rouge Christian Louboutin Nail Colour

Christmas Gift Guide with Rouge Christian Louboutin Nail Colour

Rouge Christian Louboutin Nail Colour
Price
: $67 (+ Canadian Shipping currently FREE)
Availability: Christian Louboutin Canada Online Boutique
Good for
: The nail obsessive who has everything.

I haven't picked this up myself yet but I have heard great things about the pigment and the quality of the Louboutin polishes (yes I said polishes plural... There is a whole line available now, not just Rouge). Every girl knows the name Louboutin and a gift like this is more something to 'oooh' and 'ahhh' over than one a person would use every day, but sometimes those are the best gifts. We all need something expensive and pretty from time to time, and this will make a great statement piece on any dresser. :)



Ciaté London Mini Mani Month 2015

Christmas Gift Guide with the Ciaté London Mini Mani Month 2015

Ciaté London Mini Mani Month 2015
Price
: $71 (+ Canadian shipping FREE)
Availability: Sephora Canada *currently sold out :( 
Good for
: Anyone who loves nail polish. A LOT of nail polish.

Who doesn't love a good daily advent calendar in December! Technically if you wanted to get a gift this is one you should have gotten before December started, but I'm sure your gift-ee won't mind getting 23 bottles of polish and nail decorations as well as a crystal nail file on Christmas day instead. I picked up this calendar last year and loved it, and if you aren't quite ready to spend full price on it you can usually find calendars from the past few years available for a discount at Winners and Marshalls around this time of the year. :)



OPI Color Paints Full Collection

Christmas Gift Guide with the OPI Color Paints Full Collection

OPI Color Paints Full Collection 
Price
: $79 (+ Canadian Shipping FREE)
Availability: Nail Polish Canada
Good for
: People who like painting their nails and playing with colour. 

I debated if I wanted to put the OPI Colour Paints Collection in this guide or if I wanted to go with the Essie Silk Watercolours... Both sets have the same idea (super pigmented jelly polishes that you can build and blend on the nail) but I decided to go with OPI because the base polish for the Color Paints is a metallic silver which adds a bit of something extra. :) I adore these polishes, and any nail lover would adore getting the whole set on Christmas morning. (You can also get the mini set with 6 colours for $21 + $3 shipping.)


These are my top picks, but I'd love to hear yours, too. :)

What are you getting for that special nail lover in your life this year? 

Thanks for visiting! And Happy Holidays! xx

  2. This is a great list! The present I would like most is the Zoya Matte collection, but Zoya is unfortunately hard to come by in the UK and expensive! I absolutely love the Montbleu nail files, which are a great present - whether the person likes nail polish or not. My mum loves hers (and so do I)!
