Your DIY spa day just got waaay easier.

Is it just us, or does a fresh manicure make you feel like you can conquer anything? Sure, it may not solve all your problems, but having perfectly manicured nails just says, "I've got my life together," even if you, uh, really don't. The downside is that making it to the nail salon isn't always doable. When your nails could use some serious TLC, but you're running short on time, not all hope is lost. Now, this is going to sound ~very~ groundbreaking, but here it goes: The easiest way to level up your at-home nail routine is to invest in a high-quality manicure kit.

Like, sure, you probably already have a couple of nail files and a rusty pair of clippers lying around somewhere. But if you're truly on a mission to recreate a salon-like experience at home, you gotta go into the process with all the necessary tools. And what better way to update your supplies than by snagging a convenient (and affordable!) kit filled with everything you could possibly need?

There are so many manicure sets on the market rn that you can basically tailor to your specific needs, whether you're looking for just the basics or all the bells and whistles (think: cuticle serums, detail brushes, shimmery nail polishes, you get the idea). Or, if you're into the DIY approach, you can create your own customized manicure kit with all your favorite items. So if you're ready to perfect your nails at home finally, keep scrolling for the 15 best manicure sets worth shopping immediately.

Say hello to the ultimate one and done kit. This nifty mani set has everything you need to get started, including three different sized clippers, a file, cleaners, and scissors. The sleek steel and pink case is just the right size, easily fitting into your bathroom drawer without taking up too much space.

Cuticle oil? Check. Polish and wood sticks? Check. Vegan leather case? Also check. This kit comes with a winning combo of mani tools that look as good as they feel. The fast-absorbing, citrus-scented cuticle oil is oh-so moisturizing. 

What's more disastrous than a broken nail on vacation? Don't stress about it again with a travel-sized manicure set. This chic, vegan leather pouch has a fun printed liner, and includes nail clippers, cuticle nippers, tweezers, cuticle pusher and cleaner, and a glass file. The "nailed it" on the front of the pouch is truly the finishing touch.

Sometimes you just gotta go fancy or go home. This five-piece custom-made manicure kit is equipped with professional-grade tools, each featuring antimicrobial coatings—now if that isn't salon-quality, we don't know what is.

This tiny-but-mighty set makes doing at-home gel manicures easier (and faster) than ever before. Complete with all the essentials, it's got polish, a file, cuticle stick, remover wraps, and the cutest little single-finger LED light. You'll truly be able to achieve a flawless mani anywhere—from the back of an Uber to your office cubicle.

Curate your kit by choosing your favorite vegan, cruelty free, 10-free nail shade. With this set, you'll get a base coat, top coat, and green tea cuticle oil (which can help promote nail growth). The adorable packaging makes it an obvious choice for a gift for your mani-obsessed friend.

Not only is this manicure set really cute, it also has everything you need to nail a DIY mani (think: cuticle serum, nail polish remover, clippers, files, and more). The coolest part, though, is that it also comes with a nail polish of your choice (I'm personally a fan of WKF, aka the perfect moss green).

You get a whopping seven pieces in this pretty kit, making it a no-brainer for DIY spa days. Open up the zippered pouch and you'll find stainless steel toenail and fingernail clippers, tweezers, cuticle pushers, and even a glass nail file. P.S. This one also makes a great gift (aaand it's under $40).

Looking to amp up your boring, blah manicure? Grab this kit of essentials from ManiMe, and you'll be ready to use some fun nail art to upgrade your look. (Have you seen these custom-fit gel stickers? We're kinda in love.)

There's nothing worse than snagging a nail and not having a file on hand to smooth it out. That's where this convenient little manicure kit comes in handy—it's small enough to fit into your bag or bring on the go, and it's got clippers, a cuticle pusher, and a nail file for quick touch-ups.

Yup, you can actually give yourself a gel manicure at home. Step one: Pick up this mani kit from Le Mini Macaron—it's got four gel nail polishes, a nail file and cuticle pusher, and a mini LED lamp for easy curing. Plus, it's cute enough to keep out on display (no need to shove it in your bathroom drawer).

Okay, the fact that this acrylic manicure set is $12 is kinda incredible. It comes with 40 tips, acrylic liquids and powders, nail glue, and sculpting brushes and files to help you get an easy, long-lasting mani at home. Make sure you start by cleaning your nails with remover, then follow the included instructions to a T (patience is key!).

Once you've manicured your nails to total perfection, it's time to make a statement with 'em! These press-on nails are so striking, you know that everyone's gonna be asking where you got them. Plus, with enough care, you can wear each set up to three times. Sustainable and stylish? That's what we love to hear.

If your cuticles are in need of a serious pick-me-up, consider this manicure kit the answer. It's stocked with a cuticle remover, repair cream, and a stainless steel cuticle pusher. Whip out this bb once a week for the ultimate nail-refreshing experience.

Make your own mani kit with this handy pouch. It easily fits your go-to mani tools and keeps them separate when you're on the go. Shop their essentials—including herbal nail & cuticle oil, glass nail file, and nail polish remover—to get your custom set all stocked up and ready for your next self-care Sunday.
