Where to buy the best gel nail polish for your home manicures
Looking to up your beauty game? Gel polish is the answer and here's where you can buy it!
Since its inception several years ago, the popularity of gel polish, both the kind that is set with a UV lamp and the ‘gel effect’ regular polish, has grown hugely.
Now people are looking to reduce the cost of a salon manicure but still get the long-lasting gel effect from home. We’re here to help! Here’s our list of stores that stock gel polish of all kinds!
Gel polish: Frequently asked questions
Traditional gel polishes do require a UV lamp to set properly and give them their long-lasting finish. Brands such as Sensationail offer starter sets that include a base coat, colour, top coat and setting UV lamp. It’s also worth remembering that many brands also offer ‘gel effect’ polish that does not require a UV lamp.
The best way to remove gel polish is with acetone. The cheapest way to get this is to buy it directly from a pharmacy, although many companies also sell their own gel polish remover.
As long as it is applied and removed properly, gel polish won’t have any negative long term effects on your nails.
If it has been applied correctly, gel polish can last until your nails grow out! Usually 2 weeks is long enough for people to notice natural growth from below the colour and decide to remove it.
