Aila Better Than Gel



'Better Than Gel' is the "liquid gold" of the AILA nail care arsenal. It provides a gel-like finish to your manicure without harsh ingredients. It rivals the gel manicure in both beauty and function. Gel manicures damage the nails; 'Better Than Gel' protects them. Too good to be true? Nope.

Special features of AILA's 'Better Than Gel' top coat include:

  • No UV light is required
  • It plumps the nail like gel, adding a thick protective layer
  • The external barrier is harder than traditional top coats, so it's more durable against wear and damage
  • It does an awesome job smoothing imperfections because of the consistency and thickness
  • There is UV protection in the formula to combat environmental damage to include fading and yellowing
  • 8-free, Gluten-free, Vegan
  • Made WITHOUT Parabens, TPHP, and Sulfates
  • Cruelty-free
  • Chip-resistant, super-shiny, long-lasting
  • Made in the USA
AILA provides healthy alternatives to traditional nail products. This physician formulated line is one of the cleanest nail lacquer collections available. While nail polish will never be "natural" it can certainly be safer and healthier than what the mass market has provided.

AILA is considered an 8-free line, meaning it is free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, dibutyl pthalate (DBT), camphor, parabens, triphenol phosphate (TPHP), and sulfates.

Fingernails are porous and can absorb some chemicals. Traditional nail products are often full of ingredients that are drying and damaging, such as formaldehyde and toluene which can make nails more brittle and yellow over time. Dibutyl pthalate and TPHP have been implicated as hormone disruptors that can damage the delicate hormonal balance of the body. Removing these ingredients from your routine is an important step you can take to maintain your health.

Nail polishes will never be "natural" and we want to make sure our client base understands that these are a synthetic product. If you want a completely natural nail we suggest oiling and buffing the nail to a high shine. These nail polishes are intended to provide a healthier choice for people that enjoy their use.
