Gelous Gel Nail Polish Helping you achieve long-lasting, salon-perfect nails without the expensive price tag.

The Product

Gelous Gel Nail Polish paints on like an ordinary nail polish, but lasts up to two weeks without fading, peeling or chipping.

You don’t have to worry about waiting for your nails to dry or smudging them afterwards — they are hard and perfectly dry once each coat is cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp.

Stacked up against a regular manicure, a Gelous mani lasts longer, feels stronger, and shines like noone’s business. 

Convenient packs provide the instructions, manicure tools, polishes and lamp you need to get you on your way to creating your your dream DIY manicure. All products are also available individually for those of us who have a beauty stockpile at home.

Gelous orders are dispatched every business day throughout New Zealand and Australia, so you can have peace of mind that our product will be in your hands as soon as possible. We also offer pick-ups from our handy Auckland warehouse.

The Process

Like your run-of-the-mill mani, a gel manicure starts with filing the nails, pushing back the cuticles, buffing the nails and cleaning the hands. Gel manicures also require an application of sunscreen about 30 minutes before commencing your mani to give your hands UV protection — just as you would do before a walk in the sun, or hitting the beach!

You’ll then create your manicure with a Base Coat layer, 2-3 Colour Coat layers and a Top Coat layer that each get cured in just 60 seconds under the Gelous UV/LED Lamp.

When removed correctly, damage to your nails from a gel manicure will be minimal. Using Gelous tools makes this process a simple, 15-20 minute exercise.

To start with, a light buff of the nail surface removes the shiny Top Coat. You’ll then cover each nail with a Lint Free Pad soaked in Nail Polish Remover and clip in place with the Removal Clips. After letting this sit for 15 minutes you can gently remove the polish with an Orangewood Cuticle Stick. Following this, a soothing coat of Blueberry or Osmanthus Cuticle Oil replenishes your nails with hyrdrating nutrients.

The Tech

Gel polish is made up of acrylic monomers and oligomers that bond together when placed under the UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp. This process is called "curing" and in just 60 seconds, the once-liquid gel turns into a hard coating.

With usability in mind, Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamps have a spacious design — perfect for manicures or pedicures. They contain 30 premium dual wave LEDs that last up to 50,000 hours and dry gel polish quickly and efficiently. The LED bulbs, are much safer than UV bulbs, last longer and take less time to dry your nails — it’s a win-win!

Gelous Gel Polish and the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp are totally compatible, with the UV/LED Lamp operating at 365-405nm and the gel polish curing within this wavelength.

Gelous products are cruelty free, vegan, non toxic (10 free), high quality and affordable - kind to your nails, your wallet AND the planet.
