I’ve been on a big nail polish kick recently and stumbled across these gems from Bonita Salon just a few weeks ago. If you like bright, opaque polishes, you’ll want to check out these Bonita Gel-On polishes!
About Bonita Salon Gel-On Nail Polish
I honestly can’t find any information on these polishes — either on their website or at Rite-Aid (which is where I found these polishes). Totally weird, right?! But, maybe they’re really, really new and more information will surface in the coming weeks. If so, I will update these post to let you all know! All I can say for right now is, run to your local Rite-Aid store and see if you can find a display with these polishes in their new releases section!
I feel like a lot of drugstore companies are coming out with regular polishes that ‘claim’ to act like a regular old polish, but look and perform like a gel polish. So they’re supposed to be super shiny/glossy and last longer than regular polishes. I’ve tried several of them, and none have ever even come close to lasting as long or being as shiny as a gel manicure…..until I discovered these Bonita Gel-On polishes!
I picked up 5 of the 6 polishes that were available (Lovers & Friends just wasn’t my color). All the polishes look really bright and vivid from just looking at the bottles. That Lovers & Friends color I would even classify as neon. I was crossing my fingers, hoping that the results I would get would be at least somewhat close to the color I could see in the bottle.
Here is just one coat of polish applied to these nail wheels (which are really handy to try out new polishes on!). As you can see, while some of them show the nail underneath more than others, you can almost get away with just one coat. And look at how bright the colors are! It’s awesome! I’ve tried many Sally Hansen polishes that are so thin and take more than three coats to get the color you see in the bottle. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right?!
And here is two coats. Look at how beautiful, bright, shiny, and opaque these are! They’re so shiny, you don’t even need a top coat. I, personally, did use a top coat for my nails — but mostly because I am notorious at picking at my nails if they start to chip, so I need all the help I can get. 🙂
These polishes lasted so long on my nails — I was impressed. Typically a polish only lasts a few days before it starts to chip and I take them off, but these Bonita Gel-On polishes were on my nails for a solid week without chipping. And on my toes — goodness, they lasted a month, and would’ve gone longer if I didn’t need a pedicure. 🙂
And here’s a manicure I did using the color Blue Water Lily. (Sorry for the bad lighting!) Do I need to say anything else to convince you to try these polishes out? They’re so affordable and the results you get with it are amazing! I’ve never tried anything from this brand before, but now they’ve intrigued me! The Bonita Gel-On polishes were a big win in my book!
