Customisation in beauty is a growing trend and it seems this goes way beyond colour-matching foundations or personalising your eye palette shades. Now, your nails can get in on the act too and in the comfort of your own home with the most innovative nail gels. Let us introduce you to Glaize, the UK’s first and only digital (yes, digital) nail care brand that’s completely personal to you. They’re a complete game-changer. Trust us, you won’t ever walk back into your high-street nail salon ever again!
The Glaize Story
Like so many of us juggling the work/life balance, former investment banker, Gina Farran, led a very chaotic lifestyle with unfortunately no spare time to visit a nail salon. Out of pure frustration, she strived to create a nail care solution for busy women like herself. Through Gina’s research, she became fascinated with the chemistry and formulation of nail care and set out to create a non-toxic, non-harmful and super convenient nail care solution. Hello Glaize!
How It Works
Using innovative patent-pending computer vision technology, Glaize creates made-to-measure stick-on gel nails based on images you submit through a website, meaning each sticker is completely bespoke to your nail shape. Genius!
How To Choose Your Nails
It takes a mere few minutes. Simply visit Glaize.co, add your chosen gels to basket and once you have checked out you will receive an email asking you to upload photos of your hands. Once you’ve uploaded the images of both hands, fingers and thumbs, voila! A few days later your stick-on gel nails are posted through your letterbox in adorable funky packaging. It couldn’t be easier.
At the moment, Glaize are operating on a pre-order basis as they are just so popular! So your gels may take a couple of extra days to arrive.
Bridging the gap between the beauty and the digital industry, Glaize is a complete game-changer. Trust us, you won’t ever walk back into your high-street nail salon ever again.
How To Apply To Your Nails
In just four simple steps: 1. Clean your nails with your Glaize Pad and Prep Juice (both enclosed in the box). 2. Peel a gel and press it down smoothly on your nail making sure you leave a small gap between the gel and your cuticle. 3. Fold the remaining length of your nail gel, then 4. File length to ensure the sticker fits perfectly. (Each Glaize set includes 15 made-to-measure gels (5 for your right hand, 5 for your left hand and 5 extra in case you need them).
How To Wear Your Nails
With 15 flattering and wearable colourways and prices ranging between £13 for a solid colour set, and £20 for a nail art set (launching soon), this is certainly a more affordable option than in-salon nail prices. Plus, the gels last for 7+ days, so you really get your money’s worth.

They are non-damaging and healthier for your nails (unlike shellac, there are no UV lamps used so no damage is caused to the nail). They are vegan, toxin-free, cruelty-free, and more sustainable than regular nail care. Plus, they don’t chip and completely fool proof to apply. And they give 1% of their sales to charitable causes.
