About LeChat

History

When founder Newton Luu dreamed up the Powder Gel System –a revolutionary system that changed the professional nail industry forever—he decided to sell the three salons he managed and go into the manufacturing business.

LeChat—meaning the cat in French—was born in 1993 with its headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area to service salon and spa professionals with the highest quality, most innovative products. LeChat strives to attain all that it stands for: Learn, Experience, Create, Help, Achieve, and Teach.

With more than 25 years in the nail business, LeChat continues to produce cutting-edge products such as the Gelée Powder Gel System, Perfect Match Gel Polish & Nail Lacquer, and thermal-activated Mood changing polishes. LeChat is proud to receive recognition by providing products that nail professionals in over 40 countries truly trust.

Testimonials & Mentions

Deborah Martin

Love the quality of this polish and watching for the color changes is very addicting. I’m looking forward to purchasing other colors.

Amelie Deal Mynatt

Their stripers have the absolute best brushes!

Ang

Mi Amour is a BEAUTIFUL nude color. Great opacity and formula. I love LeChat Perfect Match. I have yet to have a shade I don't like! They always cure perfectly, don't transfer to my topcoat brush and last until I take them off without chipping.
