A trio of new colours

Continuing to add to my collection of Striplac, the peel off uv gel polish I’ve fallen in love with, with a trio of colours: Bubblegum, Velvet Red and Blue Lagoon. Bubblegum – bright shocking pink – will be reserved for sunnier weather but I’ve already tried the red and blue.

Tricouleurs

I’ve bought four reds in search of a deep crimson and Velvet Red comes close but still isn’t quite right. However, it is a welcome addition to my gel wardrobe. P1080429

As you can see, it is much lighter than indicated on the label and I’d urge Alessandro to go back to the printers to correct the disparity in colour between the label and the actual gel. I found it needed three coats to get even coverage.

Shades are supposed to be replicated throughout every product in the range so I was disappointed when I opened Blue Lagoon which is much duller than the standard polish featured on the website, and nothing like the label. In reality is is a deep air force blue and it looks quite chic. I like it. P1080431

There are very few shimmer colours in the Striplac range which is now up to 48 shades. You can always do a shimmer or sparkly coat of an ordinary polish once you have cured the gel, though that never has the same resilience or shine.
