Solique by GirlStuff UV-Glow Gel Top Coat Launch

Friday, March 25, 2016

     How I wish that Solique Gel Polish by GirlStuff and Solique UV-Glow Top Coat were invented during the time I'm hooked going to clubs. I'm pretty sure my nails will standout and I don't need those glow in the dark sticks and accessories just to rave. If this glow-in-the-dark top coat was invented before, I'm one happy clubber! So what's the science behind this Solique UV-Glow Top Coat?

     Well, the Solique UV-Glow Top Coat incorporates a photo-initiator that reacts under natural light with a polymer present in Solique Polishes resulting in the steadfast curing film (Gel manicure). UV-Glow also contains a fluorescent brightener which reacts under black light cause the polish to glow! To know more about this revolutionary gel top coat and highlights of the launch, scroll down please :)

  • It dries quickly!
  • It also reacts to sunlight, changing colors outdoors!

For my nail of the day (notd), I've chosen one shade from the GirlStuff Neon Polish collection- chill while two other shades were from Solique Gel Nail Polish collection which I forgot the shade names, bummer :(

     I've decided to go for these shades because I want the one of the shades from the GirlStuff RAVE Neon Polish Collection to standout. So what we did was to apply them alternately. To make it more exciting, Solique by GirlStuff UV-Glow Gel was applied on top.

For exceptional events or when I have additional time I swing to the Real Lasting Eyeliner, which has taken all trepidation of fluid liner out of me. For a more natural look I utilize the smaller scale tip pen to draw the finest lines; when I need more dramatization or a cat's eye the normal Real Lasting Eyeliner is my magic wand!

NOTD: Jada and Twill

Sunday, April 20, 2014

     Happy Easter to all! Let the egg hunt begin :) So before you go out today and celebrate this special day let me share with you my first NOTD for 2014. I know it's super later post since I had this nail color last January. It's my second time using a gel polish to date and I think I already found the right kind of nail polish for my nails. My finger nails are soaked to laundry detergents and dish washing soap most of the time that's why regular and premium nail polishes easily crack and get chipped right after my manicure. I have mommy duties and I can't prevent my hands from getting wet all day long. Anyhoo, aside from my manicure I would also like to show you my pedicure because I'm really diggin' the color that I got for my toe nails. It's not gel polish though but it lasts more than 2 weeks or 1 month the most. The brand of gel nail polish that was used here is Jennifer Lynn. I'm not familiar with the brand but it's made in the US. There were so many colors to choose from and I totally had a hard time choosing because all of them looked gorgeous! Excited to see the gel polish that I chose? Click CONTINUE READING and find out more!
