Confidence can start with a canvas as small as your nails.

Confidence can start with a canvas as small as your nails.

Gelous was born, raised and made with love in beautiful New Zealand in 2018.
We couldn't find a homegrown nail kit that was affordable, high-quality, non-toxic and cruelty-free — so we started Gelous. A company created for people with like-minded values, who love creating salon-quality manicures from the comfort of their own homes. We're New Zealand's first do-it-yourself UV/LED Gel Nail Polish company. Now, we proudly have thousands of happy customers in New Zealand, Australia, United States, Europe and the rest of the world. 

Why Gelous?
Our Gel Nail Polish paints on like an ordinary nail polish, but lasts up to two weeks without fading, peeling or chipping. You don’t have to worry about waiting for your nails to dry or smudging them afterwards — they are hard and perfectly dry once cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp. Stacked up against a regular manicure, a Gelous manicure lasts longer, feels stronger, and shines like no-one’s business.

It’s true that when you look good, you feel good. When you have beautiful nails you instantly feel more composed, radiating good energy and confidence - even if everything else in your life is kind of a mess. And what’s even better? Unlike a fresh blow wave or a new outfit, a Gelous manicure stays with you for weeks. 

It’s not only the confidence that comes with a fresh mani that we love. With our busy lifestyles, self-care routines can help keep us in the present, giving us time to reset, ready to take on the world (or at least the next day). 

We're all about connection.
Gelous is on a continuous quest to connect with our customers, offering you what you need to create beautiful nails and have fun while doing it. We create safe, easy-to-use Gel Nail Polish, UV/LED Gel Nail Lamps, Gel Nail Polish Accessories, Gel Nail Polish Tools and Nail Art that allows you to express your creativity. Nothing makes us happier than seeing your creations, so make sure to tag us on social media!

We keep it clean.
Clean means saying no to nasties. Our Gel Nail Polish is 10 free, meaning we say no to Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phalate (DBP), Toulene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Parabens, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, Triphenyl Phosphate, Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide, animal testing & animal-derived ingredients. 

Our products are proudly vegan, cruelty-free and 10-free — kind to your nails, your wallet AND the planet.
