What are DIY semicured gel nail stickers?

Is this your first time trying gel nail stickers aka gellaes? We've got a Starter Kit with a FREE UV Lamp to get you started!


Semicured gel nail stickers are the latest in nail technology. Think salon grade gel nail polish but in sticker form! With it you can have gorgeous gel nails at home for a fraction of the cost without the nail damage and long dry times.

The gel polish is 60% cured which makes them flexible, stretchy and very easy to apply. Simply peel the sticker, stick on your natural nails and cure it under a UV/LED lamp for 60 seconds. It'll harden to the shape of your nails and there's 20 nail stickers to fit any nail size. They don't require soaking off as they have an adhesive back that makes it easy for you to gently lift them off your nails. 

Will this damage my nails?

No, gellaes are safe, non-toxic, HEMA free and made with salon grade gel polish. The cured gel serves as an additional layer of protection, strengthening the nails from breakage and biting.

The gellae technology allows for an easy, non-damaging removal process. Just loosen the adhesive with nail polish remover or our cuticle oil remover and gently lift the gellae off your nail!

Can I use gellae as extensions?

No, our gellae nail stickers are not intended for use as extensions; rather, they are designed to provide a thin layer of durable gel on natural nails.

Unlike acrylics, gellaes are not as rigid, making them unsuitable for extension purposes.

They are designed to be applied to the natural nail length, molding to its shape upon curing without the risk of popping off.

How do you apply and remove gellaes?


Gellae gel nail stickers are to be kept in its original black pouch until ready for use. With exposure to UV, it will start curing/hardening on the sheet. 

How to prep your nails

Gellaes will start curing on the sheet when exposed to sunlight or UV/LED.

Do I have to cure with a UV lamp?

Yes! Gellaes are made of real gel polish so you'll need to cure it under a UV/LED lamp so it hardens to the shape of your nails.

Our portable UV/LED lamp is free in our starter kit!

How do I know if my gellaes are fully cured?

Gellaes are fully cured when they are no longer stretchable or if you are not able to leave an indent on the sticker with your fingernails.

How does gellae differ from other nail products?



  • Affordable- gellaes are much cheaper than getting a manicure at the nail salon. You might also get 2 uses of a nail pack if you stick the excess back onto the sticker sheet for another round of manicure. Make sure to keep it away from heat and light sources!
  • Easy to apply and remove- if you know how to use a sticker, you'll know how to apply gellaes! 
  • Saves time- gellaes are quicker to apply than painting on gel polish and curing between coats or making an appointment, getting to the nail salon and getting your nails done at the salon. You can apply gellaes in 20 minutes or less. 
  • Durable and long lasting- they last more than 2 weeks with proper nail preparation. 
  • No nail damage- no soaking off with harsh chemicals. Gently lift gellae of your nails with the wooden cuticle stick. 
  • No long dry time- unlike nail polish, there is no need to wait for your nails to dry so you don't have to worry about smudges, dents or fabric/hair imprints.
  • No mess- unlike nail polish, there's no spillage or accidentally painting your fingers. 
  • No smells- unlike gel nail polish, gellaes have no smell.
  • No design skill needed- you don't need to know how to do nail art, the designs are already done on the sticker. 
  • Super fun- you can change up your nails anytime! With over 30 designs to choose from, your nails will always look fresh.
  • Practice self care- taking some time to apply gellaes is a form of practicing self care. In this ever changing, fast-paced world, it is very important to pause and take care of yourself. Hence our tagline: pause, it's nail time!
  • Nail Strengthening- gellaes provide an effective solution for those struggling with brittle, thin nails. The thin layer of durable gel acts as a protective layer, preventing nails from breaking easily and promoting healthier nail growth over time.

  • Overcoming Nail Biting- for those challenged by nail-biting habits, Gellaes offer a practical solution. The resilient gel layer forms a barrier that safeguards nails from being bitten, helping users break the cycle of nail-biting and allowing their natural nails to grow intact.

  • Post-Damage Recovery- gellaes play a crucial role in aiding the recovery process for individuals with damaged nails. The protective gel layer ensures that nails are shielded as they heal, facilitating better growth and restoration after experiencing various forms of nail damage.

Yes, it is recommended to trim before curing so you can use the excess for another round of manicure.

We sometimes do it the other way round in our videos to show that gellaes aren't like traditional nail polish stickers, which don't harden once cured.
