As a real girl, I love nail polish. Whether light or dark, they all get their turn. I just don’t like the pose for the time it takes and the removal for its odors and the aggressiveness of the nail polish remover since I have very brittle nails.
A little over a month, a friend convinced me to try the semi-permanent polish. I had already had a bad experience with permanent polish that literally butchered my nails, and on top of it it only held for a nail (I seem to have greasy nails … i’ll just leave this here). Sarah is very convincing, I finally gave in. And it was also a good excuse to spend a girls night without come and go’s from my daughter who loves to turn around when I apply my nail polish … The pose made at the NailBar in Neuchatel, it lasted for 45min sum of CHF 69.- and removal costs 15.- . The result is sensational! Bright, strong, without the effect of false nails, I was delighted. Only after 14 days I got tired of the color and can’t stand to see the regrowth. After several reviews, I let myself be tempted by the Striplac kit Alessandro. What made me choose this model is that it can be removed without dissolving, like a sticker. If the varnish would not hold, I always had the ability to use the machine with another brand.
The result is stunning! Ten days after its first application, the it began to come off, because I filed my nails … So, I decided to remove all and promises made by the brand were held: the varnish was easily removed without damaging the nail. How to apply, the answer is below:
1.Polish the nail surface with the file supplied in the kit
2. Clean nails with soaked cotton provided in the kit too (cleansing pads)
3. Apply the first coat of transparent varnish (rain coat) provided in the kit and put the nail under the UV lamps for 60sec and then do the same with colored varnish. 2 coats are recommended for a covering color and finally apply the final coat of clear varnish (twin coat) included in the kit with a last passage under the lamp for 60 sec
4. The last step is to use soaked cotton to clean the nails (cleansing pads)
Between each layer, the nail polish is sticky. Therefore, avoid touching for not making marks and apply the following layers. To prevent the polish to come off, it is important not to exceed the nail. The first application is a bit tricky and requires a bit of patience. Mine lasted an hour! But the second pose took me ‘only’ 35 minutes. If the varnish is a little tougher on some nails, there is a small elixir that has to be put on the contour of the nail for 5 minutes.
As you have probably noticed, I am absolutely a fan of this kit and can only strongly recommend it.
