We love the lasting power of gel manicures. But frankly, we’re a little spooked thinking about the harmful effects of UV rays and the harsh removal process.

The solution: Caption Polish ($12), a new line of lacquers that promise to stay on your nails chip-free for up to nine days. 

We put the polish to the test at home, and our one-coat manicure survived a week of boot camp, dishes and some light gardening. The best part: No fancy lights or soaking required.
