THE BEST GEL POLISH

The OG gel polish that delivers up to two weeks of high-shine wear, CND Shellac comes in more than 100 shades and makes it easier than ever to maintain a gorgeous mani.

2 / 5

THE BEST LONGWEAR NAIL POLISH

So much more than a seven-free polish, Olive & June Nail Polish ($8) comes in 30 on-trend, yet goes-with-anything colors and offers a near-two-week wear time that rivals our favorite gel mani.

3 / 5

THE BEST QUICK-DRY NAIL POLISH

Life is too short to waste time waiting for polish to dry. Luckily, essie expressie ($9) not only dries in about 60 seconds, but also features a new angled brush so you can easily apply it with both hands.

4 / 5

THE BEST NAIL TREATMENT

Apply sheer Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Transfix Nail Restore Base Coat ($18) as a primer or a nude polish. Either way, it helps strengthen brittle nails that have been damaged by gel, dip powder or acrylic.

5 / 5

THE BEST NAIL POLISH REMOVER

Of all the removers we’ve tried over the years, we keep coming back to Zoya Remove Plus ($10) because it doesn’t dry out nails, has a genius pump lid and erases color from all 10 fingers with one cotton.
