Gellux gel polishes are an innovative, light-cured nail colour that offers a longer-lasting alternative to traditional air-dry nail polish. Designed to apply like a polish but wear like a gel, the patented technologies within the Gellux formulation promotes excellent adhesion and wear properties, while still allowing for removal by soaking in acetone. Suitable for use on a natural nail, nail extension system, Acrylics or Fibreglass, Gellux polishes last up to fifteen days and are UV and LED compatible.
