Formulated by the best

"Simply put - One of the safest formulas available"

The HONA gel system has been formulated by Jim McConnell one of the foremost leaders in gel polish chemistry. 

The decision to use Jim McConnell to create our gel system was an easy one. Jim shares our ethos about using only the very best, safest and highest quality ingredients.

This allows HONA to guarantee that our gel polish is not only hypoallergenic but it is also one of the safest formulas available for both you and your clients.

Full transparency is at the heart of our system.  We're able to tell you the exact date, location and person who manufactured the HONA gel polish you are using. Something many other brands are unable to do.

HONA is 100% transparent to allow you to make a fully informed decision about the polish you will be using everyday - giving you full peace of mind.


"All HONA products are hypoallergenic and contain no toxic ingredients"

The reason we've opted to have no HEMA or any similar ingredient such as HPMA in our formulation is down to one word - SAFETY.

It's likely you're going to start seeing more  brands move away from using methacrylates such as HEMA & HPMA  this is down to them being the 2 most common allergens in nail products.

We firmly believe the future of gel polish will be completely HEMA & HPMA free and as such we will start our gel system journey the right way - hypoallergenic 


Same But Safer

The exclusion of HEMA & HPMA (the #1 & #2 allergy causing ingredients) in our products may leave you thinking the strength and longevity will not be what you are used to when compared to other brands made in less regulated countries such as China. However with the help of Jim and an incredibly thorough quality testing regime the HONA gel system will give you the same performance as your usual builder and gel polish without the increased risk of causing allergies to yourself or clients.The next generation of gel polish is almost here.

Vegan & Cruelty Free

HONA will always be 100% vegan and cruelty free.

By sourcing our products in only the most reputable facilities we are able to guarantee this to you. 

We are fully transparent with our gel system supplier to allow you to do your own research to verify this.

Trust is and always will be a big part of HONA

HEMA & HPMA are the number 1 and 2 most common ingredients found in gel systems that will cause allergies.

They are well known ingredients but there are safer options that offer the same quality and strength.

We entrusted the incredibly talented Jim McConnell to develop our formulas so that we will be able to say our system is - HYPOALLERGENIC
