Best value Christmas beauty gifts 2021: Nail polish & care gift sets
My final guide to makeup bargains for Christmas 2021 is all about the best nail gift sets, and – of course – where to find them at the best prices. All these potential presents have caught my eye and impressed me, and I think they’re definitely worth picking up for the manicure lover in your life. Oh, and it’s totally fine if that person is you, too…
Nails.INC ‘Spice as Nice’ 4-piece nail polish set (worth £60) | RRP £22.00, best price £16.50 at Boots.
Nails.INC really knocked the festive gifts out of the park this year, with colour, care and stocking fillers galore. This Christmas 2021 quad gift set set contains full sized nail colours that will see you through the party season and beyond, with a copper glitter shade, festive red, dark red and nude mauve.
You may also like their The Nails.INC Express Nude Polish Trio, RRP £15, on offer for £11.25 at Boots, a trio of full sized nudes (mushroom, cream and warm brown) that are both tasteful and essential to the plot. There’s also the Nails.INC Must-Have Manicure Set, with five full-sized products (Superfood Repair Oil, NailKale base coat, 45 Second Top Coat with Retinol, a Nails.INC nail file and Thirsty Hands hydrating hand sheet masks), worth £51+, RRP £25.00, on offer for £19.00 at AllBeauty and Fragrance Direct.
Barry M Romantic Rose Nail Paint Gift Set (worth £16) | £12.99 at Barry M.
Four Gelly Hi Shine rose tinted nail paints in different shades of pink, with full sized bottles. Long lasting, pretty colours with a gel-like glossy finish. One for your pink-obsessed friend or relative, especially any girly-girls you might know. I’d say their whole gift section is definitely worth a look this year.
OPI Celebration Collection Nail Polish Mini Christmas Cracker | RRP £16.70, best offer £10.02 at JustMyLook.
This festive cracker from OPI is filled with four mini bottles of brightly-coloured polish: Big Bow Energy (pink), Paint the Tinseltown Red, My colour Wheel is Spinning (lilac) and Ring in the Blue Year. An eye-catching collection for anyone who likes their manicure to stand out. This special offer price isn’t going to be around for long and the cracker’s already sold out in some shops, so if you want one then best to snaffle it now.
For a range of more classic mini shades, look no further than this year’s OPI Celebration Collection Infinite Shine Iconics Gift Set (Alpine Snow white, Bubble Bath pale pink, Big Apple Red and Malaga Wine), RRP £19.90, best offer £11.94 at JustMyLook.

Featuring two nail colours (a rich red and bestselling nude-pink Eternal Optimist), an all-in-one top and base coat, and an apricot oil to nourish the cuticles, this covers all the quality basics and more. It was definitely worth shopping around for the best deal on this one, big savings to be had in the current offer at Very.
You might also like the Essie French manicure duo at Superdrug, for a reliable, tasteful stocking filler. It’s in the 3-for-2 offer as well, with potential for savings if you’re doing a bigger shop.
NailKind Paradise Found Nail Trio Set | £25 at NotOnTheHighStreet.
Want something a bit different for an arty or vegan friend? These three great nail polishes from NailKind are all beautifully wrapped and ready to go in a selection of interesting shades (brown, bubblegum, crocodile green) and unique formulations. These vegan, natural and cruelty free nail polishes are also eco friendly and sustainable. Plenty of other sets and colour combinations available in their NotHS shop too.
Alternatively Superdrug is selling 34 NailKind single shades for £8.95 and they’re in the 3-for-2 right now, and Amazon is discounting NailKind polish to £6.71 per bottle in an offer. Choose a single bottle for a vegan-friendly ‘little something’ gift or put your own collection together based on what you think they’d like most.
