FOR DAMAGE REPAIR
If you’re a gel devotee whose nails need a break, this is the colour for you. With a strengthening formula infused with vitamins and essential minerals, it revives thin and brittle nails while offering a subtle touch of colour. If your nails are on the drier side, this will hydrate both the nail bed and tip for a neater feel overall.

Formulated with rich active oils that will repair seriously damaged nails, this product will mend dry, brittle nails within three weeks. Its hydrating ingredients encourage fresh nail growth, while offering a flattering tint. Use it as a base coat before applying other shades, or wear it on its own for a sheer nude look.

FOR A PEARLY FINISH
For something a little more pigmented, this pearly, pinky sheen is such a winner. The formula is seriously impressive, using up to 84% bio-sourced ingredients which are also vegan and free from toxic chemicals. Ideal if you want a bit more impact, it won’t dry out or damage your nails in the process either.

FOR A NATURAL FORMULA
FOR GUARANTEED RESULTS
There’s a reason this is one of the most recommended base coats, strengtheners and illuminators on the market. From its unique texture – which smooths, hardens and lasts – to its flattering peachy nude colour, this is a nailcare hero. Most nail artists will use it as a base, but we recommend adding two coats for a glossy, chic wash of colour.

FOR A BIT OF SPARKLE
Gitti’s vegan nail highlighter is a quick and easy way to add a little something to bare nails. We love that you can tailor the pigment to your preference – either build it up for a dramatic, glittery effect, or go light with one coat for a little touch of sparkle. While you don’t need to go overboard with a top coat, an extra layer will help it last longer.

Promising to instantly lift dull or discoloured nails, this one offers a sheer veil of colour that smooths the nail surface to give a radiant finish. Universally flattering, it dries quickly and lasts, making it a reliable go-to for nails in need. It’s also vegan and has an impressive toxin-free formula.
