Create an Abstract Holiday Design Using Gelish Art Form Gel Paints

The Gelish Art Form Gel makes creating precise two-dimensional designs easy thanks to its opaque formulation, allowing for total artist control.

The newly launched Gelish Art Form Gel makes creating precise two-dimensional designs easy thanks to its opaque formulation, allowing for total artist control. Available in 24 shades—from primary colors to pastels to shimmers—the one- stroke gel paint comes neatly packaged in a Smart Jar, which has a built-in lip designed for wiping off excess gel. All of the art; none of the waste!
