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.

Merrick Fisher, Celebrity Manicurist, @merricures
For me, it all started with the Clear Powder Gel to add strength to natural nails. My love affair with LeChat blossomed from there. I adore their glow in the dark powders. And their gel polish is phenomenal and highly pigmented.
Jessica Fedoroff, Sloppy Swatches @sloppyswatches
[Retro Remix] is a collection of neons done right and in a great formula with so much versatility in the Perfect Match duo! Watermarbling has seldom been so easy!
Love the quality of this polish and watching for the color changes is very addicting. I’m looking forward to purchasing other colors.
