I’ve gotten really into at-home manis this past year and have become an absolute Orly convert. Compared to other more “It” nail brands that begin with “O” — Opi and Olive and June? This outlasts ’em — really. Whether it’s their regular polish or their Breathable line, I find that the colors are gorgeous and rich, they go on smoothly even if you low-key suck at doing nails like I do, and they stay looking fresh for days — longer than any other polish I’ve tried. That means a lot coming from me, since I wash my hands constantly and am prone to picking at my nails and cuticles. With my track record, finding a polish that still looks pretty darn good after about a week is a massive win.The only exception to this is their glitter polish, but, like, when has glitter polish ever worked well outside of a salon?? Orly’s topcoat and remover are also the best I’ve ever tried, and their base coat rocks too. I love the rubbery, easy-to-grip handles on all their polish bottles. And this color in particular??? It is pretty and rocker chic and glam and quirky all at the same time (all the things a perfect shade of purple should be), and it is basically my aesthetic in a bottle. It feels really different from the myriad other purples in my collection, too, so I recommend it if you’re looking to stand out in 2022 ✨.
7.A sheet of peel-and-stick marble-effect paper to customize pretty much any of the surfaces in your home — from floors to countertops to drab pieces of decor — to make them look like they belong in a million-dollar listing. Not to mention give you a fun and Instaworthy project in the new year.
8.A rawr-some dinosaur planter so your plant can go down in ~prehistory~ as having the cutest abode in all the land.
9.A double-sided silicone lip exfoliator brush you’re sure to wanna ~kiss up to~ to smooth out your dry winter pout.
10.A massaging, exfoliating, and blood-flow-increasing scalp brush over 7,000 (!!!) reviewers swear by to give you that feeling of someone deep shampooing your hair at a salon that you love so much. Not to mention this helps with dandruff and buildup, plus even helps encourage hair growth!
11.A LOLworthy fruit-shaped cat cap that’ll pretty much pay for itself in entertainment value with just one picture of your kitty (though you’ll be taking approximately 863, and they will probably all end up in next year’s Top Nine).
12.A beautiful deck of rainbow playing cards you’ll love so much, you won’t be able to keep a poker face.
13.Nyx Epic Ink eyeliner, a waterproof formula that’ll make you wonder why you spent years dropping major $$$ on liquid liner when you can get a ~meow~velous cat eye or super-~fly~ wing that’ll last all day with this.
15.A supportive padded cami that’s like a sports bra and crop top in one, so it’s ridiculously versatile. It’ll be your new fave workout top *and* a perfect layering piece for fancier outfits that you won’t even have to worry about wearing a bra with. Go ahead, get one in every color.
16.Super-spicy ground habanero powder you can use to (literally) heat up every dish you cook in 2022, from meat to veggies to rice to soup. May I also ~pepper~ in the fact that it’s kosher, non-GMO, and sourced from environmentally responsible farmers?
18.A clip-on ring light you can just pop on the top of your phone or laptop to help you take the best selfies (or regular pics!) of your life and look your best on video calls this year.
19.A darling Dapper Animals Coloring Book for anyone who wants to try their hand at fashion design this year but thinks human models are a little overrated, TBH.
20.A charming snail soap dispenser you shouldn’t be slow to add to your cart — and don’t worry, you won’t have to ~shell~ out much dough for it. Listen, frequent handwashing is still very much going to be a part of life in 2022, so why not add some extra cuteness?
21.A teeny-weeny, adorable, retro-inspired Bluetooth speaker that’s the perfect mix of old-school style and high-tech design. Rock out to your favorite tunes or just amuse yourself freaking out over how tiny it is!!!!
22.A lovely and You-tiful sticker referencing one of the best shows of the past year, IMHO. It features the logo of Madre Linda’s finest establishment if you’re looking to get a ~killer~ carrot cake cupcake or be trapped in a glass cage in the basement.
23.Brooklyn Botany’s amazingly affordable brown sugar scrub that smells sweet but is tough on dry, dead skin and acne, and costs about a tenth as much as a spa day.
24.A clean/dirty dishwasher magnet to help you keep a cool head in 2022. You’ll be so glad you impulse bought when it saves you from yet another fight with your roommate because they threw their icky dinner plate in with the dishes you JUST. FREAKING. WASHED.
25.Peripera Ink Velvet lip tint, a bestselling K-beauty lip stain for a matte effect that makes a statement but is still subtle enough for every day. It just might feel better on than any other liquid lippie you’ve tried, too.
26.An absolutely inspired car dipping sauce holder that’ll clip to your vents so you can easily dip your drive-thru meal without spilling BBQ all over your seats or balancing ranch precariously on your center console. Where has this been your whole chicken-nugget-eating life???
31.A beautiful acrylic and faux-pearl barrette that reads “Magic,” because honestly, is there a better word to describe you and the energy you want to channel with your style and everything else this year?
32.An absolutely hilarious Schitt’s Creekcake sticker ideal for celebrating birthdays, graduations, selling out motels, successful a cappella performances, or just getting through the year that was 2021.
33.And finally, a screaming goat figure, because if you don’t have one of them by now, it’s time to fix that and scream your way into 2022.
