4. Fancy Hand Treatment
A nail polish freak loves doing her own mani, but that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t want to relax and enjoy a nice hand treatment or a hand massage from time to time. Show your special girl how much you care about her and her little obsessions by pre-booking a treatment to help her relax and get her hands pampered by a pro.
5. Custom Made Polish-Related Gift
Printed T-shirts are always a great choice and the quirkier, funnier and more polish-related the better! A cute tee with the words Head Mistress printed in bold red ink would definitely have me jumping in joy and if you happen to remember a quote your polish fan goes by or an inside joke she’ll love, you pretty much have this unique gift idea all figured out.
6. Box of Goodies
From adorable mini polishes and cute nail files to daring nail foils and all of those little necessities a girl needs for a perfect manicure - just assemble your kit of choice and focus on wrapping it really nicely. It may not score you an Oscar for originality but hey – is there a better way to surprise and support a newbie collector? Plus, mini polishes are so awesome!
7. Custom-made Shade
Still looking for the perfect gift? No out-of-the-box idea will do? Well, how about a custom made shade? You can choose to put your mixing skills to the test and DIY that perfect shade or you can leave the tinkering to those with a natural talent for it and simply choose a name, color and finish. How? Where? How much? Well, Google is your friend - remember?
