We couldn’t leave out SL favourite 14 Day Manicure. This starter kit has everything a nail novice could need, and it’s all designed to be as simple to use as possible. Again, you can choose your own shades, with 200 cruelty-free colours on offer. These gels claim to last up to three weeks and set under the LED lamp in as little as 30 seconds.

Manicurist Green Flash Set, £89 (was £125)

Best For: Formula & Nail Health

Manicurist’s clean formulas still offer impressive colour pay-off and its bespoke sets come complete with a powerful but compact travel lamp to help you achieve impressive results in as little as 30 minutes. Gels should last nearly a fortnight and soak off in under two minutes. Plus, because it’s bespoke, you can handpick the nail shades you want included in your kit before you purchase it.

Selfgel Kit Home Manicure Atomic Red, £99

Best For: A Salon Experience

To fully recreate the salon experience at home, you need this kit. It includes a gel prepper, a peelable base, a nail colour, a gloss, an LED Lamp with a USB cable, cleanser wipes, a nail file and a prep-and-remove pusher. The polish itself is innovatively formulated with a peel function, so that rather than soaking off the nails, you can simply peel the colour off when you’re ready for a change.

Sistaco The Deluxe Set, £75

Best For: Customisation

One of the most aesthetically pleasing kits on this list, this marble set includes a unique vegan gel powder formula as opposed to a typical gel polish. It’s a little fiddlier, sure, but the results are seriously impressive. Unlike other powders that need dipping into, this one can be painted on like a normal polish using a brush, making it easier to do from home. It also gives you freedom to create hundreds of shades by mixing and matching the powders together.
