There’s no better feeling than stepping out of the nail salon with a fresh manicure. For me, getting my nails done has been a little luxury, a moment of respite from the hustle and bustle of my busy lifestyle. But with inflation rising, my bi-weekly self-care excursion simply isn’t sustainable any more — and I know a lot of people can relate. So, instead of resorting back to using regular nail polish that chips almost instantly, I decided to bring the spa-like experience home by investing in the Morovan Poly Gel Nail Kit

For someone who is usually inept at painting my own nails, I find that the results this kit provides are on par with long-lasting salon-quality manicures. Because of this, and the sheer amount of money I save by doing my nails at home now, I plan on gifting the kit to all of my girlfriends this holiday season. 

Now I know there are dozens of at-home gel nail kits available (we even rounded up the best of the best), but this one truly stands out. As our best overall pick, this kit comes with everything anyone could ever need, including everything needed for prep (think: Nail clippers, two nail files, a cuticle fork, a cuticle pusher, nail primer, and a base coat), and eight colors of poly-gel polish ranging from bubblegum pink and snow white to two fun temperature-changing ombre polishes.

There’s more though: For those who like their nails to really sparkle, the set also comes with a selection of embellishments — like flower decals, holographic sequins, and rhinestones in multiple sizes; plus tools that are specially designed for nail art (like tweezers, rhinestone glue, and nail art pens) are also included.

If you’ve ever gotten a gel manicure, you know that gel polish needs to cure (aka set) under a UV light in order to harden. The set includes a professional-grade, 48-watt LED light that offers three timer settings at 5-, 30-, and 60-seconds. And of course, a top coat is included to ensure each mani stays shiny and chip free. Essentially, the kit covers the basics and more, and gives anyone the freedom to experiment with countless finishes and designs.

Not only does the kit cost less than the average gel manicure, I also like to think of it as the gift that keeps on giving. Think about it: Gifting this kit to one friend can result in countless spa nights in — not just alone, but with the whole crew. In my opinion, nights spent at home with close friends are the most memorable, and this set only elevates those special evenings with unforgettable manicures at your fingertips (literally).
