Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the price! I liked this product and it provides a thick base. It also has prevented my nails from yellowing with red coloured polishes. Good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says After becoming allergic to gel polish I was desperate to find something that would stop my regular nail polish chipping, I rarely got 24 hours out of my mani's no matter what I did. Then I found Gelous, I was sceptical at first but I found if I put a coat on top of my base coat and another on top of the 1st coat of polish, not only does my polish stay good for 3 days plus but it looks nearly as good as gel

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gelous Nail Gel I have only been using this product 3 weeks, but it seems to be helping my fragile nails after removing acrylic. I use along with Beauty Secrets to harden nails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love this polish! I use this as a layer in-between coats of Essie and as a top coat. It's the only way I can get Essie polish to last on my nails more than 2 or 3 days. It can take some time to dry, so if I'm in a hurry, I top it off with Out The Door and it's great. I almost got a full week out of my Essie Polish, which for me is AMAZING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from buy this :) I only use it as a basecoat or I use Orly Bonder Basecoat, then 1 or 2 coats of Gelous. Then my color, then a topcoat. this stuff makes my nails look fat-smooth and glossy. it looks like you have a gel cured polish on. every polish you put on top of this looks so smooth because this stuff applied first, makes the nail so SMOOTH and glossy! I LOVE it!. I went through almost the whole bottle in less than a year! hahah

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Auuh mazz ing I bought this based off reviews and you don't have to have a light to cure it and its fairly cheap. After looking up how different people use it I went with the following technique 1. Apply thin coat gelous let dry aprox 1 minute (it does dry pretty fast) 2. apply color let dry aprox 3 minutes (or until dry) 3. Apply thin layer gelous let dry aprox 1 min 4. Apply color (for me i already did my base coat so i did glitter and 2 coats) let dry 5. Apply top coat (i skipped i didnt have one) 6. Apply another layer of gelous let dry completely this coat took about 15 minutes. I did 2 coats for extra strength. Tip: make sure at the end of your strokes of gelous you cover your nail tips this helps it not chip. This is just the way i did it. I saw many ways but for me my hands are always in water, hitting things and nails breaking. Im on day 5 and took photos it still looks like i just did it. My nails are thicker and stronger. Im in love and won't attempt anything else. I think if im going to stick with a natural look i wotks do 3 coats and do it in the evening so i can let our "cure" over night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong gel top coat I decided to try this over the Sally Hansen gel top coat and so far it works even better! It's not as thick and gooey as the SH. It goes on easier. And the best of all is that I'm going on 5 days without any chips. I used it on my own french manicure and I love it. Plus the price is better then the SH.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes nails peel I wanted to love this polish. Sadly it made my nails and my daughter's nails peel horribly. I actually bought like two bottles because they were on sale. So disappointed. My daughter and I have always had strong nails. We had to wait a couple of months for our nails to return to their stronger state.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. I have paper thin nails. They snap and bend and crack all the time. I started using Gelous, and I'll never use anything else for nail strength again. When I keep my nails bare, I use three coats of this. I usually do it at night and let it dry while I sleep. In the morning, my nails are hard as diamonds and almost impossible to bend. When using nail varnish (nail varnish, nail polish - however you call it), I put two coats of colour and one coat of this. I work in a pet store and I often have my hands submersed in fish tanks, digging around in gravel, and my nails are constantly being banged into things. When using this product, impacts that should and normally would snap my nails do not. I'll smack my hand into something and pull back, expecting to see a nail torn down to the flesh, only to find that nothing has happened and my nail is still whole. Also, when applying colour to my nails, if I cover it with a coat of this, the colour lasts. I recently spent two days with my hands shoved in fish tanks, and one day giving my German Shepherd a bath, and I've only had a very little bit of wear and tear on the colour. No chipping, just some fading around the very edges of maybe two nails. I'm exceptionally impressed with this product, as nothing I've tried has ever worked before. Having my nails done and knowing that they're going to last gives me a desperately needed confidence boost; I feel cute! I'm definitely not going to go without this product ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brush On Acrylic This stuff is FANTASTIC! I've tried every system & potion, and nothing stopped splits in the middle of my thumb nails, or splits in the sides nail beds, till now. I haven't had nails like this since acrylics; and it doesn't destroy my nails LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the first "gel-like" product that has worked for me! I saw this on Pinterest and almost didn't get it, because every gel-like product I try chips off in the first day. I love this product. I do not need to spend the money on shellac manicures now. I also love that you can basically use any nail polish with it and it lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased this after seeing it mentioned in a bunch of Pinterest posts. I've had trouble getting my nails to grow, they seemed to be very flimsy when they got any length and would break from either peeling or splitting. Since I've used this the last two/three weeks, I haven't had one nail break. Nails feel much thicker. Only downside is the smell, which is very strong, similar to Seche Vite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I bought this after reading a few DIY gel manicure posts on Pinterest. Every single post said this stuff was the "secret ingredient" to get the perfect, at-home gel manicure. Each post said that it lasts for up to 14 days. I have tried it 3 times now, all with higher end nail polishes, and each time, it has chipped FASTER than if I just use the nail polish alone. I was really looking forward to not having to paint my nails every couple of days. Such a bummer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really gives regular nail polish a gel nail look I bought this product after seeing a Pin on Pinterest showing how you can do gel nails using regular nail polish. The pin suggested using several alternating layers using this product, but you can actually just paint your nails the regular way by using a base coat, nail color, Gelous, then a top coat, and you still get the effect of a gel finish on your nails. It may not last as long doing it that way, but it reduces the time when it is time to change nail polish. I would highly advise when applying this product try using thin coats. It is very thick and can take a long time to dry . Also if you live in a humid environment,this product can become harder to get out of the bottle over time and seems to become harder to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Truth You MUST add this to your manicure kit. After refusing for years to do my manicures because of polish chipping within days, I am in love with this product. Seven days without a single chip has made me a believer in manicures again. I use this product as a top coat after the final layer of polish with a couple a drops of Essie quick drying oil and within 15 minutes my nails are dry. Surely this product could keep a manicure in tack for longer than 7 days but since I like to keep my manicure color fresh, I renew my nails weekly. Because I seldom find bottles of Gelous on the shelves, I ask the clerk if there any in the back and if there are, I buy two at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG LUV this stuff! My friend is a Manager @ a Sally's in Michigan. She swears by this & now so do i! I saw it on Pinterest & read the reviews here & the one who said Shellac in their review, THANK YOU it got my attention! I had given up on my own manicures because they wouldn't last 2 days before chipping or peeling. Now, I use this as a base & on top of every coat of nail polish, 2 coats Orly nail polish, top coat & Essie quick drying drops. Nails are dry in about 10 minutes & I'm doing laundry & whatever else needs to be done! I'm back to giving myself a manicure weekly & LOVING it! It took about a month & noticed my nails had grown considerably for the first time in a while due to very low hormone levels. I wash my hands frequently & even more so during the colder months. I get compliments on my nails alot now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING as a top coat I know it is upposed to be a base....but I have been through two bottles of this miracle as a top coat and I LOVE it! Totally works miracles. I d my own nails and I only do them every 2 weeks, my polish always look great and chip free. I swear it is because of this as a top coat! i have had my nails done at the salon and they don't last as long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Had been getting gel nails for 3 months and my nails all began breaking off diagonally at the top and separating from my fingers. Yecch. Have used this product as one thin coat only with no other polish for over two months. My nails look amazing. They have grown and are stronger. A thumb nail that developed a vertical split down the middle has grown out after over15 years of problems. I apply once a week and touch up the tips as needed after swimming. This the most amazing nail product I've ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I heard about this on Pinterest and decided to try it for myself. I bought the Orly Bonder, this product and the Seche Vite top coat. I wiped my nails first with acetone nail polish remover, applied the bonder base coat, a coat of gelous, a coat of nail polish, coat of gelous, coat of polish and than the top coat. My nails stay chip free for at least 8 days if not longer. Without the Gelous my nail polish would chip within 24hrs. This stuff is amazing and works just as well as Shellac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I saw this item on Pinterest and it said it would make your polish last longer. Polish doesn't even last a day on me without chipping. WOW. I did a coat of this, a coat of polish, another coat of this, then another coat of polish, then top coat. 3 days with NO chips... crazy!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love this product, however it is very drying. I don't recommend using this polish if you have dry nails that tend to crack and split, this only makes it worse. After using only one time I had to cut my nails down to the skin. .Very disappointed : (
Date published: 2014-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product I have read some reviews on here with problems drying. If this problem occurs, you should try applying it by using a thin coat of this product. I used this product a couple times so far and its by far great! I loved getting my nails shallac ed at nail salons but always wanted a way to do it myself without purchasing a UV or LED light that can be pretty expensive. This stuff is the trick no more money to the salons for my nails I am doing it myself at a fantastic price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is really amazing! I've used it for years and rarely polish my nails without it. It adds visible thickness to your nails and really makes the polish last longer. I have horrible nails and cannot get polish to stay looking good but this really does help. Also, this product is so much better than those that claim to do the same thing by other brands I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Awesome! I can't say enough good stuff about this product. I was looking for a product that would help my nails from breaking, splitting and being thin. Not only does this make my nails super tough (without nasty chemicals like formaldehyde) but it helps them grow, makes them shiny and it makes nail polish last way longer! I use it as a base coat too! I love this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I wash my hands a trillion times a day and couldn't get nail polish to stay on for more than about 12 hours before chipping. I ended up wearing acrylic nails constantly just so polish would stay on. I finally took of my acrylics after over a year and my natural nails were so weak and breaking. I hated them! I couldn't keep polish on them for more than a day and they just kept splitting and breaking to the point of being painful. That's when I found Gelous. I use it in conjunction with the same line's ridge filler, "Bridge the Ridge". My new routine keeps nail polish on for sometimes up to 5 days! I usually change polish colors just because I feel like it rather than because I have to! I always use SURE-BOND first. You can find that in the acrylic nail section. That just saps the oil from your nails. Then I use a layer of the ridge filler, then a layer of Gelous, polish of choice in however many coats I need, another layer of Gelous, and then Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. Perfect nails! I've seriously tried all the long last top coats and even the full line of ORLY's top coats, base coats, and primers and all have failed me until now! I only share this info because I've searched high and low to figure out how to keep my polish on and just happened sort of by accident to find the answer. I hope this helps others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I have been using this for a couple weeks and it is amazing. I have tried every clear polish there is to try and grow my nails but this is the best. It dries in ten minutes or less. Then it lasts for days without peeling or chipping. I can also grow longer nails without them breaking and splitting on the edges. I haven't broken a nail yet and I keep having to file them down because they are getting too long. It even saved my nails that were about to split. This is worth the money!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite I picked up this little miracle bottle as a result of reading about it on a nail blog. It has become my go-to clear and I use it as a base and top coat as well. Thusfar it has protected my nail beds from two polishes I absolutely love, but are proven to stain. The shine is incredible and it even helps to extend the life of my polish a day or two. I don't use a light for any reason, so it does take a while to dry and harden up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat I tried Gelous because I have a terrible time with nail polish chipping. It was great for that. For the first time EVER my polish lasted 5 days without a chip. I also have a terrible time with peeling nails. The first 2 or 3 weeks using Gelous I was thrilled. Then I began to notice my nails snapping off at the slightest thing & peeling much worse. I consulted a professional & found that the Gelous was causing my nails to dry out too much. I am going to try using nothing on my nails for a couple weeks. I will go back to the Gelous because it does a great job at protecting the polish. I won't be using it constantly though.

Can you use this when using a uv light for coloring your nails?

Asked by: Kathy Br
I'm sure you could, as it wouldn't do anything but it would also not react the same as it would with gel polishes as this is not gel polish.

How long does it take to cure?

Asked by: Katerbug
I apply this as a base coat to clean, dry nails. The application should be completed fairly quick as it starts to dry almost immediately. I let my nails 'rest' a good five to ten minutes to avoid "smooshing" additional coats of colour and top coat. I really like this product. It does help protect the nails from getting damaged and prevents stains from reds/orange colours. Hope this helps!
