Nail-polish brands often say their formulas will last weeks, but thanks to a crop of new gel-hybrids on the market, we really believe it. Not too long ago, the only way to get a high-shine, chip-free mani that really stuck around was to sit in a salon and undergo a 30-minute (at best) gel-polish application. Now that same result is much more convenient. Here, shop our favorites, and reap the benefits of gel at home sans the appointment or the UV light.
