Gelish is a gel nail polish that is to be applied like regular polish but must be cured using a UV lamp. Gelish lasts much longer than your regular manicure; approximately 3 weeks without chipping or peeling. Dry time is instant, making the application process quick and easy.

Dark maroon/purple, with just a hint of sparkle to keep it from being too oppressively dark. I found that I needed 3 coats to get the best and most even coverage, but 2 coats was probably enough if you're good at nice, even coats.
