The Best Gel Nail Polishes: 211K Reviews
Based on 210,518 Influenster Reviews
So what is gel nail polish anyway? Gel nail polish reacts to special light, so it requires drying under a LED or UV lamp. This unique process bonds the polish to the nail making it last much longer than traditional nail polish. It's typically performed at a professional nail salon, but now there are gel polishes that you can use at home!

I've been spending upwards of $30-$45 every 3 to 4 weeks to get my nails done for years. For the longest time I just opted for regular polish until one day it was recommended I try gel/shellac polish. This was the first brand that I tried while getting my nails done. I fell in love! Now I have a collection of colors and a UV lamp at home so that I can do my own nails and save the thousands of dollars I've been putting into nail salons back in my own pocket!
There's a rainbow of gorgeous colors to choose from! Some metallic, some with little metallic flecks as well as gorgeous flat colors for any time of year! The only secret to this type of polish is to apply in THIN LAYERS!!!! Thicker layers do not cure properly and tent do bunch up and not dry. I'm currently wearing 2 colors I put on last night! This is long lasting and chip proof! I absolutely love it and will never go back to regular polish if I have the choice!!! ...read more
P.S. Additionally, these were a great buy b/c you don't have to purchase an LED or a UV light. They work without it and removing the polish was easy. I didn't have to soak them at all. I used a cheap non-acetone remover. ...read more
