Gel polish essentials typically refer to the basic products and tools needed for a gel polish manicure. These can include:

  1. Gel polish: The actual nail polish that is applied to the nails and cured under a UV or LED lamp.
  2. Base coat: A clear, sticky polish that is applied to the nails before the gel polish to help it adhere and prevent chipping.
  3. Top coat: A clear, shiny polish that is applied on top of the gel polish to add shine and protect the color.
  4. UV or LED lamp: A special lamp that is used to cure the gel polish, drying and hardening it quickly.
  5. Nail file and buffer: Used to shape and smooth the nails before applying the gel polish.
  6. Nail cleanser: Used to clean the nails before applying the base coat, removing any oils or residue that might interfere with the adhesion of the polish.
  7. Cuticle pusher: A tool used to push back the cuticles and clean the nail bed.
  8. Lint-free wipes: Used to remove any tacky or sticky residue after curing the gel polish.
  9. Gel polish remover: Used to safely and effectively remove gel polish from the nails.

Having these essentials on hand will allow you to create a professional-quality gel polish manicure at home or in a salon setting.
