Swatches: Gel II and Gel II Reaction

I first found out about Gel II from the Nails Magazine Next Top Nail Artist competition.  As a participant I was sent a package of goodies that included their Polish II.  I really loved the colors and super smooth application of the lacquer.

I recently had a chance to get to know the Gel II and Gel II Reaction line a little more and I have to say, I was pretty impressed.  The things that really stood out for me about the line:

  • No solvents – less drying on nails
  • No base coat needed – base coat is built into the color formula
  • Close to 200 colors!
  • Super shiny top coat
  • Matte is a big trend this fall, and since many of the colors dry matte you can wear the trend pretty easily without additional buffing or another topcoat.
  • It’s LED curable – 30 seconds per layer makes for a super fast service.  Can cure by traditional UV if you don’t have LED lamp.

The cool things is that there is also a complimentary Polish II line that matches all of the the Gel II (except for the Gel II Reaction), and it is also a base coat free formula. It also has an optional base coat if clients have ridges, or if you want a smoother application with some of the chunky glitters.

I ran out and bought a slew of colors to play with, but even so I’ve barely got 1/8th of the collection.  Still, I think you an idea of the fun range available with this line.  Available at select distributors and online at  Try your hand at the Halloween art work contest while you are at it.

Gel II Reaction – Just like the mood rings, the polish reacts to temperature.  The main color changes when exposed to warmth.  In most of these shots you can see the free edge is the original color. I love this stuff!
