These Polishes Give You the Gel Look Without a UV Lamp

An at-home manicure can be daunting: You have to worry about trimming your own nails, shaping them to perfection, and most importantly, applying the polish just-so with the hopes that your DIY manicure will last just as long as one you'd get at a salon. But that's where these top coats and polishes come in. They're all ideal because of the long-lasting formula and no-chip capabilities, plus they don't require a UV lamp, so you can create the perfect manicure or pedicure from the comfort of your home. Read on for ratings and reviews of our top 10 picks.

1 OPI Infinite Shine ProStay Gloss Polish



Rating: 4 stars, 84 reviews

What people are saying: "Best top coat yet. It removes easily like a normal polish and yet it is one of the best long lasting nail polish top coats. It covers any nail polish and prevents chips. Lasts about a week without chipping with normal wear. I loved it so much I even bought one for my friend." 

2 Butter London 'Patent Shine 10X®' Nail Lacquer



Rating: 4.5 stars, 72 reviews

What people are saying: "Love, love, love Butter London. It goes on so smoothly, has the most wonderful, shinning colors (that everyone will compliment you on), and contains no harmful ingredients. At this point in time, I could not consider buying any other nail polish."

3 Chanel Le Gel Coat Longwear Top Coat



Rating: 4.5 stars, 30 reviews

What people are saying: Excellent top coat. Le Gel Coat keeps my manicure fresh and chip-free! I also use it when in between gel manicures and it helps strengthen my nails as they're prone to cracking and breaking. I hope they keep selling this product.

4 Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish

amazon.com $9.99

$7.46 (25% off)

Rating: 3.4 stars, 601 reviews

What people are saying:  "This has been the only nail polish I have used for awhile, but never splurged on the second step. Decided to see if it would make my polish last longer. In the photo that I've uploaded, I painted my nails on Thursday and I just finished my third 12 hour shift since Friday and my polish is still mostly there. To put things into perspective, I work in a warehouse and do not wear gloves. Without the top coat, by the end of my work week my polish would be almost completely gone. Needless to say I'm impressed and I'm upset with myself for waiting so long to buy it."

5 Dior Vernis Gel Shine & Long Wear Nail Lacquer



Rating: 4.8 stars, 143 reviews

What people are saying: "I'll rate it at a 4 for formula alone. However, 851 is such a perfect oxblood color so I give it a 5 star! It is really the star of the collection. You can feel autumn/winter-ready in moments."

6 Essence The Gel Nail Polish



Rating: 4 stars, 864 reviews

What people are saying: "Great polish! Definitely works best with base and top coat. I've had it on for over a week and only needed to touch up because of nail growth. No chips at all! I give about 1 minute dry time between coats. 1 base, 2 color, 1 top."

7 Essie Gel Couture



Rating: 4.1 stars, 721 stars

What people are saying: "This is the first nail polish I have purchased that doesn't instantly smudge even after 15 minutes of dry time and still looks new after a few days of wear." 

8 Red Carpet Manicure Designer Series LED Gel Nail Polish Collection



Rating: 4.3 stars, 76 reviews

What people are saying: "Great color. Love Red Carpet products. Great base coat."

9 Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro Nail Polish



Rating: 4.5 stars, 106 reviews, 30k Sephora loves

What people are saying: "The brush is amazing and the consistency of the polish is perfect. I avoid doing my nails myself when applying dark colors, but the consistency of the polish and the shape of the brush made doing my own nails a breeze. The color lasts at least a week unchipped with a good top coat (I use the DL topcoat)." 

10 Nails Inc Gel Effect Nail Polish



Rating: 4.5 stars, 156 reviews, 20k Sephora loves

What people are saying: "New fav brand! Wears well, applies great, lasts long even if you're always doing dishes, etc! I will buy this. Maybe 100 time more. Love it!"
