There are so many pros to getting a gel manicure. (It lasts for weeks! It doesn’t chip the minute you leave the salon!) But there are also a slew of cons. The cost and removal process can sometimes outweigh all the good. But we just found out there’s a way to get rid of all those negatives, thanks to NCLA’s So Gelly products!

The way it works is that you apply two coats of the base color (which is said to feel a bit thicker than regular polish). Then add the magic top coat to get the amazing gel-like results.

It dries insanely fast and doesn’t require a special salon-visit removal process. Just normal nail polish remover will do the trick, which means you won’t have to peel off paint (a.k.a. ruin your nails) ever again!

NCLA’s 10-product color range comes in everything from neutral tans and pinks to bold blues and greens. And all are 5-free, meaning they don’t contain harmful chemicals that may be found in other polishes.

A color and top coat combo costs $22 and will save you loads of time (and money!) now that you can skip those special salon visits.
