Why is Gelous Gel Nail Polish a Good DIY Gel Manicure Brand?

  • 6 min read

What is Gelous Gel Nail Polish?

Gelous is a vegan, cruelty-free and 10-free (non-toxic) UV/LED Gel Nail Polish range that allows you to create salon quality gel manicures from the comfort of your own home.

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 your final coat is cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp.

Stacked up against a regular manicure, a Gelous gel manicure lasts longer, feels stronger, and shines like no-one’s business.

What are the benefits of Gelous Gel Nail Polish?

Gelous Gel Nail Polish applies like a normal nail polish, but lasts much longer (at least two weeks) and dries much faster. Your gel nails will be hard and perfectly dry once the Top Coat layer is cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp, meaning you can have a beautiful long-lasting manicure without having to worry about bumping or smudging your nails in the process. Unlike regular nail polish, your Gel Polish only dries after it is cured with the Gel Nail Lamp

It can feel expensive buying your Gelous Kit upfront but once you own it, you’ve got it! Our customers love the money they save on trips to the salon, as well as the convenience of changing up their manicure whenever they choose - all from the comfort of their own home. Our range of Gel Nail Polish colours, UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp PacksGel Manicure Accessories, Gel Manicure Tools, Nail Art Tools and Nail Art Decals are expanding all the time so you'll always be spoilt for choice and able to express your creativity. 

Gelous Gel Nail Polish is vegan, cruelty-free and 10-free. We keep it clean, saying no to nasties such as Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phalate (DBP), Toulene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Parabens, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, Triphenyl Phosphate, Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide, animal testing and animal-derived ingredients. We care about our customers as well as the planet, so we want to ensure that when using our products you can be confident that you’re using safe, ethical products.

When you've got a beautiful gel manicure, you instantly feel more composed, radiating good energy and confidence. And what’s even better? Unlike a fresh blow wave or a new outfit, a Gelous gel manicure stays with you for weeks! It’s not only the confidence that comes with a fresh set of Gel Nails that we love, it's the self-care routine that comes with it. With most of us leading busy lifestyles, a DIY gel manicure routine can help keep us in the present, giving us time to reset, ready to take on the world (or at least the next day).

Transparency is important to us, so we outline our shipping information and returns information clearly throughout our website.

We love creating content for you to enjoy and learn from on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and Youtube. You can connect with us on these platforms, or our active Facebook Community Group, where our customers share their manicures, talk about techniques and give each other inspiration. Nothing makes us happier than seeing your creations, so make sure to tag us on social media!

"I highly recommend any item from this company. Not only do they have the best customer service I’ve encountered, but the products are actually as good as they say, they last longer than regular polish and look great. I can’t wait for more colours."
- Lee

"I would go to the salon a few times a month and spend easily $60 a pop. This is sooo much better! I can do it myself at home, and it ends up being so cost effective! I love the results, and I’ve only just started using it! Can’t wait to get better, have better results and continue to use the system."
- Stevie

"So shocked about how good the quality is of the products from this website. I’m so impressed considering how affordable all the products are. I got the lamp, cuticle oil, two polishes, the base coat and top coat and some more accessories/tools. My nails look amazing and feel super strong! Couldn’t recommend enough. Not to mention they’re cruelty-free, which is incredible. So happy!"
- Izzy

" I ordered the Gelous Starter Kit and I am beyond happy with the results - no more nail salon appointments for me. Easy to follow instructions and the product applies and cures perfectly. Lasted 2+ weeks with no chipping. Delivery was extremely quick, arrived the next day. I will be purchasing more polish to build my collection! Thank you! "
- Michelle

"Great product, easy to use for an amateur. Goes on well and also lasts. Im hard on my hands and it has been fantastic so far - 2+ weeks without a crack or chip. Love it. Will be buying more colours ASAP."
- Desiree

"I’ve tried a few different at home gels as I have to wear polish for work. I have always had some issues with setting or colour accuracy with other places but so far haven’t had any issue with Gelous. I am very happy with the polishes/equipment/price and will 100% only be getting my gels from here!"
- Amy

"Super impressed with the quality of this at home nail kit. Super easy to use and long lasting. Loving being able to have my nails done at home instead of trying to find time to go to appointments when you have children. 100% would recommend!"
