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.
Unable to find a homegrown nail kit that was affordable, high-quality, non-toxic and cruelty-free, we took matters into our own hands and brought Gelous to life. Our vision was simple: create a haven for those with like-minded values who love creating salon-quality manicures from the cosy comforts of their own homes. Proudly holding the title of New Zealand’s first do-it-yourself UV/LED Gel Nail Polish company, Gelous now delights thousands of happy customers across New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Europe, and the rest of the world.

Why Gelous?
As New Zealand’s first DIY Gel Nail Polish company, we’ve been perfecting the art of at-home beauty since day one. Our Gel Nail Polish paints on just like ordinary nail polish but lasts over two weeks without fading, peeling or chipping. No need to wait for your nails to dry or worry about smudging them - they’re hard and perfectly dry once cured with the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp. Stacked up against a regular mani, a Gelous manicure lasts longer, feels stronger, and shines like nobody’s business.

There’s something truly empowering about having beautiful nails. It’s not just about the aesthetics; it’s how they make you feel. A stunning mani instantly raises your confidence, having you radiate positive energy and exude an aura of composure, even when life gets a little chaotic. And the best part? Unlike a fleeting blow wave or trendy outfit, a Gelous manicure stays with you for weeks.

It’s not just the confidence boost that comes with a fresh mani that we love. In our fast-paced lives, a self-care ritual is essential for staying grounded and present. Taking the time out to create a beautiful manicure is more than just pampering yourself, it’s a moment to rest and recharge, leaving you ready to take on the world - even if it is one day at a time. 

We're all about connection.
Gelous is on a continual quest to connect with our incredible customers, offering everything you need to create beautiful nails and have a blast while doing it. Our safe and easy-to-use range of Gel Nail Polish, UV/LED Gel Nail Lamps, Gel Nail Polish Accessories, Gel Nail Polish Tools and Nail Art empowers you to unleash your creativity and express yourself like never before. Nothing makes us happier than seeing your creations, so be sure to tag us on social media!

We keep it clean.
Keeping it clean is in our ethos, so we say no to nasties. Our Gel Nail Polish is 10-free, meaning it’s free from Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phalate (DBP), Toulene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Parabens, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, Triphenyl Phosphate and Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide, plus no animal-derived ingredients or animal testing.

Our products are proudly vegan, cruelty-free and 10-free - kind to your nails, your wallet, and the planet. It's time to step up your home mani game.
