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

  • 6 min read

What is Gelous Gel Nail Polish?

Gelous is a cruelty-free, vegan and 10-free (non-toxic) UV/LED Gel Nail Polish range with 150+ colours to choose from. With Gelous, you can create salon quality gel manicures from the comfort of your own home.

Gelous Gel Nail Polish paints on like a regular nail polish, but lasts up to two weeks without any peeling or chipping. Your nails are hard and perfectly dry once your final coat is cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp, so you don’t have to worry about waiting for your nails to dry or smudging them afterwards.

When compared to 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 is as simple to apply as 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 your Top Coat is cured with the Gelous Gel Nail Lamp. This means you can have a strong, long-lasting manicure without having to worry about smudging or bumping your nails in the process. Unlike ordinary nail polish, your Gel Polish only dries after it is cured with the Gel Nail Lamp.

It can feel expensive buying your Gelous Kit initially, but once you own it, it's yours to keep! Our customers love the money they save on trips to the nail salon, as well as the convenience of being able to change their gel 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 AccessoriesGel Manicure ToolsNail Art Tools and Nail Art Decals are constantly expanding, 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 the planet, as well as our customers, 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 self-confidence. 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, an at-home gel manicure routine can help keep us in the "now" and give us time to reset.

"Highly recommend to anyone who comments on my own nails. Love how easy the process to purchase is and love following on social media. Highly, highly recommend Gelous!
- Jamie

"My hubby bought me this for Christmas and it is a game changer! Everything I need to save myself spending money on salon manicures and as an added bonus it's super easy to use. I've only used Red Sass so far - it's holding up great after nearly 2 weeks and the colour is really strong and vibrant. Highly recommend getting the tools as well as the polish - the cuticle oil smells delicious, the nail file is fantastic quality and the wood sticks are very helpful in removing the excess polish!"
- Jenna

"I am obsessed with my Gelous collection so far. I love doing my own nails and definitely saved so much money not getting them done at a salon!"
- Paula

"This was my first time doing a DIY gel manicure and it has lasted exactly a week so far with no lifting or chips!! Application was super easy and I only needed 2 coats. The finish is still super shiny as if I did my manicure yesterday and this includes taking care of 2 children, giving baths, showering, doing chores, etc."
- Rosa

"Great products, great service, great nails and vegan!!! There’s no going back from Gelous."
- Carolina

"Loving building up my Gelous gel polish collection! The colours are gorgeous and the coverage levels are true to what is stated for each polish. Gelous have quickly become my favourite for polishes & other nail products!"
- Mel

"Recommended few people to you since I brought the set 3 months ago. Lasts as long as professional sets I used to get. It took me a couple of times to get it looking good but practice makes perfect. Lasts a lot longer than other gel brands my friends were using. Highly recommend!"
- Hayley

"I’ve been shopping with Delous for almost a year and I am obsessed! I love buying new colours and there’s such an extensive range."
- Alyia

"Fastest delivery I've had out of anywhere recently! Super exciting to order and have it arrive only a couple days later. Love the range of colours and products and the affordability so that I can do my own nails. I was spending $50 every 3-4 weeks to get them done, and with a purchase around $150 (and another recent one around the same amount) I have 10 colours, a matte top coat, some stickers, glitter coats, tools for keeping my nails nice, the lamp, everything I need - it will have all paid for itself within 6 months (3 if you include pedicures) and it is quite relaxing to do them myself as well! Definitely a purchase I don't regret and I've been recommending it to all my friends!"
