What's more, Mayour's packaging is top-of-the-line, with a display concept similar to that of makeup brands. Imagine a lipstick stand but for nail polish! Intrigued? Explore Mayour's collection today and discover the nail gel colors you never knew you needed.

To learn more about Mayour, I contacted our favorite Korean Gel brand's US distributor, Zillabeau, to ask about the brand. To my surprise, I discovered that Mayour and "F Gel" are owned by the same parent company. From The Nail, Asia's most innovative nail manufacturer, is renowned for its innovation, suggesting that Mayour is sure to be amazing. 

In 2021, Mayour was founded in South Korea. It has become known for its unique bottle and display packaging that requires no extra preparation. They have also improved their brush to offer a smooth, thin application with great pigmentation and coverage.

When I first found Mayour, the packaging was the first thing that caught my attention; it looked like high-end lipstick or lipgloss. The colors looked very pigmented and smooth, but my second thought was, I already have a lot of stuff, a lot of colors; am I going to buy more gel products just because of the packaging? The answer is yes, yes I will. 

I started with one color. My mentor is adamant about adding more than 3 brands to your entire collection because it's not just adding more products that can potentially sit on your shelves and collect dust. There's the learning about the brand aspect and buying the corresponding products from the brand to avoid service breakdowns, but with colors, there is a bit of wiggle room. 

I didn't go crazy and bought an entire collection. Instead, I got color #85, a bright, beautiful purple (my favorite purple), and my goodness! From the moment you hold the bottle, you feel the luxury. The bottle is fully matte, soft to the touch, and comfortable to hold in one hand. Also, it has a bit of weight, not too heavy, just enough to feel good quality. The golden lettering of the logo is clean and sophisticated, so definitely an attention-grabbing item at the salon.

To use the color, you pull up the square cap, like lipstick, and screw off the brush from the bottle. The gel is thin but with consistency, not too thin, and the pigmentation is there! The colors are creamy, buttery, and soft to apply. One coat and you get precisely the color displayed on the bottle. 

That's another great aspect of this thought-out packaging, you won't be lifting bottles to find the shade you need, the bottle matches the color of the gel, and the square cap has a square tile displaying the color; I know many of us do this color swatches with the little glass beads or tiles, but Mayour does it for you and more. 

Get ready for an unbeatable gel browsing experience with Mayour's premium stand! No more searching through a cluttered collection - each gel is given its own designated space and labeled with a vibrant color swatch and number, making it a breeze to find your perfect shade. And the best part? No assembly required - it's ready to use straight out of the box! It's like having your own personal makeup counter, but better!

Lastly, Mayour claims to have an upgraded brush design to optimize bottle gel application, so I compared the brush to the ones from my other brush on bottle gels. Mayours' brush is thicker than most of the brushes from the other brands; it can hold more gel to facilitate a one or two-swipe application. Very comfortable and easy to use, even if you are a beginner or DIYer.

What To Get

In Korea, Mayour is the most popular brand known for its numerous collections that follow the latest colors and trends of each season. The Slinky collection provides the brightest opaque neons for summer, while The Wave Collection offers ocean-inspired transparent syrup gel without a white cast, that creates beautiful colors. Mayour recommends trying the Wave collection, as it is their most special product and a great collection to start with.

As we transition to the Fall season, there is a shift in color palettes towards deeper, jewel-toned shades. Mayour has released its new Fire Gazing Collection, featuring eight stunning gels that capture the intricate beauty of fire's ever-changing hues. Regardless of the season, if you appreciate earth-tone colors, you will adore this collection. Each polish has a semi-sheer syrup finish that creates a mesmerizing blend of color and intensity.

The Mayour gel bottles are priced at $19 USD per bottle and contain 8g of gel. This falls within the medium price range. In comparison, F Gel bottles are priced at $15 USD for 10g, while Japanese gel pots cost $20 USD for 4g per pot. It's important to note that Korean and Japanese gels are known for their premium quality formulas that ensure long-lasting manicures and promote nail health, which is reflected in their price.
