    1. A baguette ring for anyone who likes to accessorize with a pop of color. Or stay neutral with a more classic look β€” either way you won't be able to keep your eyes of your hand with this ring on.,

    Promising review: "Ladies...THIS. RING. It shipped very quickly and it arrived in a nice blue velvet bag. It fits pretty true to size and is not super heavy, but not flimsy or cheap either. It is well made and seems to hold up pretty well, given that I'm usually pretty tough on jewelry. The stones seem to be set very securely and it has not at all tarnished or discolored, though I do take it off to wash my hands, apply lotion, etc. and do not wear it 24 hours a day. And the SPARKLE! It shines in the dark, and in the light it just absolutely gleams. I've gotten so many compliments on it and I am absolutely in love!!" β€”Kerri Alford

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5-9 and seven colors)

    2. An Orly spring nail polish to bring a pop of color to your day as we move into the sunnier months. These gorgeous colors come in shades from "All Dahlia'd Up" to "You Had Me At Hydrangea" and if that's not enough to convince you to invest, then I don't know what is.


    Promising review: "The color is a beautiful bright spring green as shown! Goes on easily in two coats and hardens really well. Lasted me a week with no chipping and my hands are in water everyday." β€”Denise

    Get it from Orly for $9.99 (available in six colors).

    3. A set of hand mask gloves infused with honey and almond to soften your skin and condition your cuticles. And it comes it even comes with a foot mask as well, so you can pamper both your hands *and* feet at the same time.


    Promising review: "Just used these with my sister and we love them. My skin is extremely sensitive to fragrances and much more in lotions or soaps but this worked amazing. My hands get really dry in the cold and you wouldn't be able to tell. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with some struggling hands right now!" β€”Caitlin

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    4. An anti-biting polish to help you kick that habit and keep your nails looking clean and refined. The formula is designed to taste superbitter and in turn deter you from biting.

    Promising review: "This stuff seriously works. As a lifelong nail biter, I decided on my thirtieth birthday that I needed to finally put my bad habit to rest. After reading some blogs and Reddit posts, I ordered this product. I applied it to my nails before bed (as recommended) and also wore a rubber band on my wrist so that I could train myself to no longer bite my nails. The Mavala polish tastes terrible, and it will even leave its trace on your lips if you even touch your mouth. After just about three weeks now, I am happy to report that I don't even think about biting my nails. My fingernails have grown to a nice length and now instead of hiding my short nails out of embarrassment and shame, I spend time making them look nice with pretty nail polish. I'll use the Mavala again if I am ever tempted to bite again. This product is the best. I am forever grateful." β€”Woah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    5. A Fossil smartwatch that will keep you looking fresh and also help you answer calls, track your activity and movement, and even keep up with your calendar. It's like a best friend and a personal assistant all in one!

    Promising review: "First, this watch is the most comfortable watch I’ve ever put on. The materials are sleek and look amazing. The face is incredibly scratch resistant and the brightness is perfect. It was also a really simple setup from the moment I turned it on. It synced with my phone immediately and all of the features are incredibly responsive. I use it daily now and wouldn’t have it any other way. I would give it 10/10." β€”David

    Get it from Amazon for $173.48+ (available in six colors).

    6. A set of O'Keeffe's working hand creams because, even after a year of constant washing and sanitizing, our hands still need that extra *oomph* when it comes to moisture.


    These creams are made, as you probably guessed, for people who work with their hands a lot leaving them calloused, dry, and cracked so they're perfect for the times we are currently living in.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first after getting the hand cream. I imagined that it would not work like many other creams I’ve tried. I was pleasantly surprised after first use when the cracks on both my hands were nearly healed (after using both the hand cream and night treatment). I especially love the night treatment with the conditioning oils. It also has a great scent. Highly recommended for anyone!" β€”ChrisMichigan

    Get it from Amazon for $14.49.

    7. An argan oil creme infused with shea butter and vitamin E to hydrate and renew your dry hands. Plus, it's lightly scented so you don't have to worry about an overpowering smell.

    the lotion

    Promising review: "This hand cream has really saved my hands. Between all of the hand washing and sanitizing my hands were becoming very dry and cracked. It absorbed pretty quickly and didn't leave a greasy feel. The scent was also pleasant. All in all a very good buy and I will purchase again." β€”Amanda1225

    Get it from Orly for $21.

    8. A nail polish wrap that's so easy to apply, you'll wonder why you haven't been doing this your entire life. Just peel, stick, and file for a beautiful patterned mani.


    Promising review: "Love these! So cute and easy to apply. Appreciated the instructions and extra tools." β€”Kaitlyn

    Get it from PrettyFabNails on Etsy for $5.99.

    9. A set of 24 Shany nail colors so you can switch up your look whenever you want. Become the expert nail artist you've always wanted to be with this set.,

    Promising review: "This set is awesome for anyone who likes to polish their nails and worth every penny. The polish colors are vibrant. It comes with five glitter polishes and 19 colors (including black and white). Honestly one of the best purchases I've made this year. My nieces and I LOVE them." β€”Maureen M.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.74.

    10. A Sally Hansen cuticle oil to help repair the cracked skin at the bed of your nails. There's nothing worse than dry cuticles that are borderline painful, and this oil has got you covered.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! I used to be a devotee to this stuff and my nails were beautiful. But sadly I fell under the spell of the argon oil trend, thinking it would do the same thing. WRONG! My nails reverted back to being peeling and chipping disasters! I reordered a week ago, and have been using twice a day since over my old manicure because it was fresh and my nails responded after the first use! I redid my manicure last night and my nails have done a complete 180, stronger and healthier, with no ridges, peeling or chipping." β€”Jone

    Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

    11. A fitness tracking watch for your heart and your hand. This watch will help you keep active with its built in pace coaching designed to help you achieve your goals. Plus, it tracks your activity and looks *uber* stylish on your wrist.

    reviewer wearing the watch

    Promising review: "After almost a week with this watch, I love it. Battery life wasn't great the first 2 days but after a couple charge cycles it now last a full 2 days. Tested out the HR monitoring against a Polar chest strap and the numbers were spot on with little to no lag while doing HIIT. Haven't messed around much with any 3rd party apps but the basic functionality is great and looks good as well." β€”Kenneth Knapp

    Get it from Amazon for $179.99 (available in six colors).

    12. A smudge fix polish that'll smooth over any dents or nicks in your manicure so you don't have to worry about ruining your polish throughout the day.

    Promising review: "This is like a little miracle in a bottle. I do my own nails once a week with nail strips. I put a clear coat over them (usually before bed) and when I wake up in the morning, there is often fabric imprints on my nails. I swiped this stuff on and it was fixed almost instantly. It doesn't make your nails sticky and it dries really quickly. I will definitely be buying this product again." β€”Ashley Klingler

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    Promising review: "I took my acrylic nails off and my natural nails were extremely damaged......thin as paper and splitting. I thought about putting the acrylics back on. I used nail strengtheners that paint on the nails that cost $40 and still they looked bad. Tried this product and within 7 days my nail were looking and feeling great and my cuticles are healthy and soft." β€”U S Man Of Steel

    Get it from Amazon for $7.94+ (available in three different packs).

    Promising review: "My hands deal with cardboard for eight hours a night, and I was shocked at what that does to your hands. Burt's Bees hand cream is so soothing and actually absorbs into my skin and they feel so much better after using it. It really is the best absorbing, healing, and softening cream I've ever used and I have tried many others. This is my go-to product now, and Amazon's price is the best ever, as well!" β€”Sharon H.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.39.

    Promising review: "This is a simple ring, but very cute when worn. The flat front of the ring makes a very subtle statement, but a statement nonetheless. I really liked the simplicity of this ring and absolutely love wearing it. You can easily stack it, or just wear it on its own." β€”lilianalovinglife1

    Get it from Nordstrom for $34.97+ (available in sizes 4.5-9 and three colors).

    18. A slim Michael Kors watch so shiny you won't ever want to take it off. Plus, what screams style more than a large watch face? Pretty much nothing.,

    Promising review: "Exactly what I hoped it would be like. Very lovely rose tint and not too heavy. The face is quite large, but still not too flashy." β€”Jaclyn

    Get it from Amazon for $108.58+ (available in 19 colors).

    19. A press-on kit for when you a want beautiful mani, but don't have the time to paint them yourself. Just ~press~ these on and no one will believe they're not the real thing.

    the full set on a hand

    Promising review: "Great, now I need more! My nails look like I just left the salon. I did use nail glue with these as well, as I was reading the reviews. Not sure how long they will last, hoping for a week, but they sure do look great." β€”Deb S.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. And a hand massager for ultimate relaxation. This has three levels of compression and heating, a cordless design, and three levels of intensity for the ultimate TLC.

    Promising review: "This massager is amazing. I bought it because I was experience smartphone pinky/cubital tunnel symptoms, and with a combination of using this massager and limiting my smartphone usage, my pain is gone. I've done probably 15 massages on one charge. It's a long massage and is a little intense at points, so it's important to sit still and comfortably." β€”Indigo

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.
