Gelous vs Bloss Gel - Why Gelous is the Best Bloss Gel Alternative

  • 7 min read

Ready to take your at-home manicures to the next level? While both Gelous and Bloss Gel are known for offering gel nail products, Gelous stands out as the ultimate choice for flawless DIY manicures.

With a far superior range, Gelous’ high-quality nail products are designed with people just like you in mind. Well-suited to the at-home user, we place your experience at the forefront. Our exceptional support paired with our safe, easy-to-use products makes for a salon-quality result, every time.

Bloss Gel on the other hand falls short, catering to a broader market, with a limited selection and an inadequate level of support that largely leaves you on your own. But that’s why when stacked up against each other, Gelous has the upper hand.

5 reasons why Gelous is the best alternative to Bloss Gel

Exceptional Support

We believe that exceptional support is the backbone of a successful at-home gel nail journey, so we go above and beyond to ensure you feel confident in creating your dream manicure. There’s no denying that when it comes to support, Gelous outshines Bloss Gel in every aspect. Not only are we on hand for your every need, but we understand that knowledge is power, so we consistently deliver an abundance of resources to guide you every step of the way–important qualities that are lacking in Bloss Gel.

Our comprehensive video tutorials covering the likes of application techniques, removal methods, nail art, and tips and tricks, are thoughtfully crafted to empower you with the skills to create stunning, salon-quality manicures. Dive into a treasure trove of long-form tutorials on our Youtube channel, and discover bite-size mini-tutorials on our other social media platforms, keeping you inspired with the latest trends and techniques. Our informative blog posts delve into a broad range of topics, from in-depth how-to guides to the latest in the nail world, while our extensive FAQ's leave no questions unanswered. Whenever you need personalised assistance, our dedicated customer support team is always ready to lend a helping hand. Not only that, we’ve built a thriving Facebook community where nail enthusiasts just like you come together to share their experiences, offer advice, and inspire each other–standing shoulder to shoulder with you throughout your entire journey. 

With Gelous, you’ll never feel alone or uninformed. While other brands leave you in the dark, Gelous shines bright with its commitment to providing unmatched support–empowering you to create the perfect mani with confidence and ease. Why would you settle for any less? Once you’ve experienced the Gelous difference, you’ll never look back.

Superior Range

When it comes to product range and variety, Gelous leaves Bloss Gel in the dust. Our extensive selection boasts over 300 Gel Nail Polishes, spanning the full spectrum of colour, finish and function to ensure your dream manicures are only a moment away. We believe that you should never settle, that’s why the Gelous range is far broader than Bloss Gels, with our Gel Nail Polish collection over twice as extensive alone. Greater choice makes for greater manicures, after all.

Our diverse range offers everything you need to create show-stopping manicures that not only look flawless, but also last longer and grow stronger. Whether you’re after a classy neutral, pretty pastel, blazing neon or moody hue, you’ll never have to settle for any less with Gelous. On the lookout for something shimmery? Our Glitter Gel Nail Polishes will leave you mesmerised. Feeling something minimalist? Opt for the barely-there beauty of our Sheer Gel Nail Polishes. Or, why not reach for one of our Special Finish Gel Nail Polishes for an especially stand-out set? No matter the path your flawless at-home mani takes, you’ll enjoy it for longer thanks to our powerful Rubber Base Coats and Builder Gels. With Gelous, you won’t ever feel limited or as though your sets are becoming repetitive, with our range, the possibilities are endless. 

Not only that—we go above and beyond by stocking coveted items that Bloss Gel lacks. With Gelous, you’ll find a large selection of the oh-so-trendy Chrome Powders for that glamorous mirror-like shine or glazed-donut finish, a wide array of Nail Art Stickers, Transfers, and Foils to unleash your creativity, Express Removal options to cut your removal time in half, nail repair solutions and hand treatments for a truly healthy mani, and a myriad of discounted multi-polish packs - just to name a few. To us, a large and diverse range is a no-brainer, we all have unique tastes and preferences after all, but that’s why when stacked up against Bloss Gel, we have the upper hand. A one-stop shop for all your at-home gel nail needs, you can trust Gelous to have you covered.

Bloss Gel on the other hand misses the mark, failing to range any such products and providing far fewer options to support you on your nail art journey.

With Gelous, you have the power to unleash your creativityarmed with the tools, resources, and support needed to bring your nail art dreams to life.

Uncompromised Safety

At Gelous, your health and safety takes top priority. Bloss Gel on the contrary fails to demonstrate this sentiment–claiming to cater to both DIY users and professionals, yet failing to establish clear boundaries and restraints, or provide proper training. We firmly believe that certain products are best handled by trained professionals. High RPM e-files, potent e-file attachments, and poly gels are examples of items ranged by Bloss Gel that demand expertise and precision. Without the right training, improper use of these products can not only lead to significant pain and discomfort, but also irreversible damage to your nails, skin or cuticles. A risk that’s too steep to gloss over.

Gelous instead strives to ensure our products are user-friendly and accessible for all at-home users. We steer clear of products that demand professional training, keeping our focus on simplicity and ease of use. That way, your manicures stay as fun as they’re intended, and you can enjoy salon-worthy results for years to come. We think that’s exactly how it should be.

With Gelous, you can have peace of mind, knowing that our products are designed with your safety and convenience at the forefront. Using ethical production practices and non-toxic, high-quality ingredients, our products offer the professional finish you’ve always wanted, all without the need for professional training. It’s our job to keep things safe, so you can focus on yourscreating your dream mani. You’re in good hands. 

What our customers say about us

Gelous is a better supported, superior ranged and far safer at-home gel nail solution than Bloss Gel, but why just take our word for it? Check out what other people just like yourself have to say.

“These are honestly the best gels I have ever used! Can easily get two weeks without chipping. Only need to redo them when they grow out. My collection is getting bigger and bigger with new colours constantly getting released. I live for these polishes and the many compliments I get. Easy to use. Highly recommended!”
- Aleisha

“I have used other gel brands at home before and they were a disaster. Gelous has changed my life, I am obsessed! Not only do they have an amazing colour range and accessories, they are affordable and have saved me hundreds. I haven’t been to the nail salon in a year.”
- Chelsea

“I should have bought this sooner! I tossed up buying a Gelous kit and finally gave in after 6+ months. So easy to apply and all the extra little tools they supply make the whole process of application and removal really easy. Their Youtube channel is brilliant for tutorials and inspiration and I love that they’ve gone to the lengths of including a written format on their website. Great product and well thought-out website to make everything a breeze. Definitely recommend!”
- Anna
