Are you looking for nails that are trendy yet sturdy at the same time? If so, here are 30 gorgeous gel nail designs for your next manicure.

What are gel nails? For those who haven’t tried them yet, gel manicures use a gel-based nail polish that requires UV light to dry, sealing it to your nails and locking it in. Because these types of manicures are sealed to your nails, they usually last longer, and are very sturdy.

In fact, gel manicures often don’t chip at all, compared to regular manicures that only last a few days up to a week before they start looking worse for wear. This is why gel nails are perfect if you are into more physical work, but you still want your nails to look and feel good. 

Usually, you will need to go to a salon or a nail technician to get gel nails, since these go through the special process of using UV light. However, you can also purchase pre-made press-on nails with gel finish on Etsy, if you are partial to a quick at-home manicure.

Below, we’ve featured our favorite finds from both Etsy and Instagram, which you can save on your phone to recreate later, or head over to Etsy to purchase the nail set/nail wraps for yourself.
