    Unfortunately disappointed, didn’t cure?

    I read the reviews and was tossing up but absolutely love this shade of green so thought I’d give it a go. Application was normal, colour was great, looked close to black with the top coat added but I was thrilled.

    Until a few days in multiple nails started to peel away and there was a layer of uncurled gel underneath.

    I panicked, removed and reapplied, ensuring each layer was cured for 90 seconds this time, no builder gel, and only two layers of the green, and the same thing happened!

    So disappointing (and dangerous).

    Hi Eliza,

    That is an issue we haven't seen before. Just to check, are you applying the recommended thin layers?

    Please make sure to get in touch with our customer service team at info@gelous.co if you believe you have received a faulty product. This way we can work with you to resolve the issue or replace your product 😊

    Gelous.

    Like a Jelly

    A different shade depending on what light you catch it in. I love this deep green but was surprised it was sheer for how dark it is. Could create a glass look. I did 3 thin coats for my preferred coverage.

    Love the colour

    This colour takes more coats to become opaque than my other gelous polishes but I don't mind because it is such a unique colour and I always get compliments on it! Also probably the shinest gelous colour I've used.

    Many coats

    Needs 5+ even coats otherwise it shows through as more of an emerald rather than a dark green.
