Let's talk about Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish.  Soon (like in the next week, I hope) I'll let you in on my personal Gelish experience, but today I wanted to share with you on what Gelish has coming up in the following months.  You may have seen the ads of their new Magneto (magnetic) line of gel polishes, cured under LED or UV light, but I didn't photograph those.  To me, magnetic is so last year, despite the fact that many polish companies are just now coming around with their own line.

Gelish is a professional line of soak off gel polish that comes in an array of colors (and glitters), are cured in 30 seconds under LED lamps/2 minutes under UV lamps, stay on the nail for three weeks without chipping or peeling, and soak off completely in 15 minutes.

There are over 100 different colors and this fall and winter, they are adding some more.

The fall 2012 line is called House of Gelish, and features dark vampy cremes.  From left to right, Cashmere Kind of Gal (light grey), Cocktail Party Drama (dark purple), Backstage Beauty (red), My Favorite Accessory (medium blue), A Runway For The Money (black) and Fashion Week Chic (dark grey).

Next is The Shadows Collection, coming out in November 2012.  These are more of a metallic looking finish and from left to right include The Dark Side (emerald green), Angel in Disguise (dark silver), Welcome to the Masquerade (old gold), Inner Vixen (vampy burgundy), Is It An Illusion? (royal blue) and The Perfect Silhouette (dark purple).

To lighten the mood this winter, the Holiday Collection is full of pretty glitters!  From left to right are Holiday Party Blues (royal blue glitter), Little Miss Sparkle (snow white/silver glitter), Danny's Little Helpers (brilliant yellow gold glitter), The Naughty List (dark brown/bronze glitter), All Tied Up (scarlet red glitter) and Just What I Wanted (hunter green glitter).

Gelish has just jump started their PR department, so expect to see more information coming from them soon.  They do have a Facebook page where you can like them, but no Twitter at press time that I am aware of.

To find a salon near you that carries Gelish products, the Gelish website has a Salon Locator.  For the professional, you may learn more about Distribution Information by emailing . For Education Information, please email


  1. Ahh I'm so excited! I love Gelish brand gel polishes they're awesome! Can't wait to see the glitter ones!! =)

  2. How do you hear when they are releasing new colors or collections? Their website is seriously outdated and doesn't list all of the available colors.

    1. Yeah they are working on updating their website. They had a display booth at Cosmoprof North America Las Vegas last month and I spoke directly to their new PR. That's also how I got the above pictures (I took them)

    2. Thanks for the reply! I bought the House of Gelish collection on ebay to later discover that there are actually two more polishes in that collection which aren't listed on the little display. They are Taupe Model and Strut Your Stuff - a taupe and a dark brown.

    3. Interesting! Thank you for the update! I got my NAILS magazine in the other day, and I saw an ad for the new Gelish polishes... definitely a plus to see new advertising!

  3. The Runway for the money is actually a dark green, not black. When I get home from work today, Cocktail party drama should be waiting for me in my mailbox, so pumped to try it out and see how I like it!!
