The nail polish that acts like a gel without the UV rays (or the messy removal) is finally available to purchase here. The initial launch includes 60 different colors and 18 different nail effects (like glitter colors and matte) at $12 per bottle. A starter kit for $40 includes a Caption base coat, two colors or nail effects, and a Caption top coat. Application at home is simple, and the highly pigmented formula means less coats of polish and a noticeably faster drying time. If you're more likely to look for the polish at your local nail salon, refer your beauty professional to parent company Young Nails to purchase the entire selection. But remember, the sooner you get Caption onto your nails, the sooner you say goodbye to fussy gels and chipped manis.
