  • iLac – Hybrid Gel Polish cured under an LED Lamp. Goes on like a traditional polish as it has the same consistency, it provides a perfect chip free manicure for up to 3 weeks and is easily removed (soaked off by a nail professional) in less time that other Gel Polish.
    No buffing of the natural nail is needed before polish application.
    Available in a large range of colours.
  • xLac – All-In-One Gel Polish cured under an LED Lamp. No need for a base coat or top coat. The time taken to apply is less than a soak-off polish. xLac provides a perfect chip free manicure for up to 10 days (longer on toes) and is easily removed in just 3 minutes with an acetone-based remover.
    No buffing of the natural nail is needed before polish application.
    A perfect solution for those who like the ease of a traditional polish or like to change colour more frequently,  but want the gel benefits, without the hassle of a gel polish.
    Available in a selection of the iLac colours, so
    great for using on toes to match iLac fingers.
