Best gel nail polishes for a long-lasting, chip-free manicure

There’s a lot of reasons as to why someone — or you, for that very matter — would want to stay home. Whether it has to do with the highly infectious Covid-19 or a fast depleting reserve of social energy, there’s no better way to recharge than by lounging about in your abode. Sure, you might miss a pampering appointment or two in your pursuit of peace and quiet, but that’s what at-home treatments are for. Take professional-grade gel manicures, for instance. The latest generation of polishes come UV-free and promises a diamond-strong, flawless coat of colour at just the flick of a wrist. Colour us impressed — and fully converted to the cause. Below, the ones we’re hitting up on the regular.
