My Favorite Gel Polishes

Hello again beauties!

Today I wanted to let you in on some of my favorite gel polish brands out there! I have tried so many and they all act differently in some ways. Here are my top picks!

CND Shellac

This brand is my top pick when it comes to professional products. This can only be found in salons and supply stores for pros only. It is definitely on the more expensive side of gel polish, but its totally worth it. My favorite aspect is the fact that there is little “run off” on the nail plate. Many gels have to be only applied to two or three nails at a time and then hardened so they don’t run off the nails. In my experience, Shellac little to never runs. Another aspect I love is the color selection. This brand has a wide range of shades to choose from which include neutrals to bright polish. Above all, my favorites in this collection are their pastels!

Gelaze by China Glaze

This brand is my top pick for a gel polish that anyone can get their hands on. This can be found online and in Sally Beauty Supply stores. One of the best things about Gelaze is the polishes themselves have the base coat “built in”. This means you only need the polish and the topcoat and you’re good to go! This brand has some of my FAVORITE bright polish colors of any brand period. China Glaze is notorious for having beautiful neon polishes and their gel polish is no different. You should definitely try this brand if you have the chance!

I also wanted to add some specific colors from each brand that you should check out:

      1. Any time! And whoops, its LA Colors. Too many LA’s out there lol I picked it up when I did a small haul on Friday. Love the shade but two days in and 3 nails are fully without polish already. Then again it was $2.99USD. So I shouldn’t complain much lol
