Be My Nailentine – V-Day gifts for yourself

Roses die, teddy bears take up room, and chocolate is only a momentary pleasure (although it is a good one…). This Valentine’s Day don’t rely on someone else, give a gift to the most important person in your life – YOU! Tick all the boxes and spoil yourself.


We love love LOVE the new Smith and Cult nail polishes. They have the look and feel of luxury, without total luxe prices – $18 is perfectly reasonable for a GTS (gift to self). The bottles are gorgeous, the polish is top quality, and the color names are delicious – we are partial to the perfect red Kundalini Hustle, the gold glitter Shattered Souls, and Birdie Num Num, a blue which will be the hottest shade this spring/summer.


When it comes to tools, no one beats Tweezerman. Truth. Their tools are top quality and they last the distance – the kind of tools you will have for six different apartments and four different boyfriends. Their Mini Nail Rescue Kit has everything you need, and the handle on the nail file is pink, so it’s totally Valentine’s appropriate.

Cuticle Care

Not only is Essie’s Apricot Cuticle Oil super effective at keeping dry cuticles nourished and hydrated, but the apricotĀ scent smells amazing. Forget perfume this Feb 14, spoil yourself with the delicious scent of cuticle care! Dab it on behind the ears too. No? Ok.

Hand Cream

There is truly no better hand cream than Lanolips Golden Ointment. Between the Pedicure team we have tried every single cream on the market, no exaggeration, and we can confidently say nothing hydrates and protects from winter madness better than this lanolin-based cream. Whether you’re holding hands with your loved one this weekend, or just holding up a glass of wine during your Netflix marathon, you want to do it with gorgeous hands, right?
