Solique x Marilen Styles


One of my favorite de-stressing activities is going to a spa or salon and have a major pampering session.  Last week, I had the opportunity to do just that at Coco Nail Studio.  I had  a much needed mani-pedi using the newest colors of Solique Gel Polish by Girl Stuff, Serenity and Rose Quartz.  These relaxing, cool colors is released under a collaboration with Interior Designer, Blogger and Mom, Marilen Faustino-Montenegro. 

Solique and Marilen believes that warmth and wellness are essential for a happy life.  These new Gel Polishes by Solique, Rose Quartz and Serenity, clearly demonstrates an inherent balance between a warmer rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, which reflects a feeling of wellness as well as a soothing sense of calm.

We all got to take home this pretty Solique x Marilen Styles gift box after the launch


The gift box contained a pretty clutch in Serenity and a bottle each of Solique gel polish of Solique x Marilen Styles collaboration in Rose Quartz and Serenity, plus a gel top coat.





I did daily routines like I normally would for more than a week, and now, here's my review of the Solique x Marilen Styles gel polish by Girl Stuff:

Here are the Pros:
  • It gives a high shine, unlike regular nail polishes that quickly lose their shine after a few days.
  • It dries fast enough in natural light without the use of a UV lamp unlike most gel polishes.
  • It doesn't contain any harmful chemicals.
  • It can be removed with ordinary nail polish remover.  For me, this is a big plus, I don't have to schedule a return to the salon and get charged a hefty amount just to have my gel polish removed. 
  • The price is affordable at Php 180.00 per bottle for the gel polish and just Php 200.00 for the gel top coat. 
  • My gel pedicure is now on its 8th day, and it's still in good condition.  There is no lifting or peeling yet.
Here is the only Con:
  • My gel manicure lasted for only 5 days.  I somehow wished it lasted a bit longer.       
Will I purchase new bottle of Solique gel nail polish?  Definitely.  The pros far outweigh the only con I encountered.  What's my favorite color in this collaboration?  Hands down, Rose Quartz!  It's so feminine!


Try the Solique x Marilen Styles gel polishes in Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Available at Girl Stuff Nail Polish Bars at SM North Edsa, SM Megamall, UP Town Center, Glorietta II, SM San Lazaro, Alabang Town Center and Ayala Cebu.
