Solique Gel Polish Review

solique gel polish reviewI clearly remember last year, almost every blogger I follow on Instagram is raving about Solique Gel Polish. Having full trust about all these blogger I follow, I went ahead and got myself a shade. Boy, I was disappointed. Clearly, some bloggers these days would praise the products sent to them for free without even caring about their credibility.

I’m actually pretty excited when GirlStuff first released these gel polishes. The Solique Gel Polish is like a cheaper alternative to Sally Hansen’s Gel nails. However, upon trying it on, I am instantly disappointed.

Thoughts on Solique Gel Polish:
  • The formulation is too thick making it hard to apply.
  • It takes forever to dry.
  • It smells nasty.
  • Since the formulation is too thick, it chips very easily. Mine chipped hours after I put it on.
  • The so called “gel top coat” doesn’t do anything other than making the formulation thicker.
  • When I accidentally applied the “gel top coat” on my skin, it dries out like a super glue. I wonder if it’s just a super glue packaged to make it more expensive?
  • It DOES NOT live up to its claims that it can last up to two weeks.

I am almost not going to blog about the Solique Gel Polish since it disappoints me so bad. It is also the reason why it took me forever to publish this post. However, I just feel the need to blog about it because this product is not worth the rave it got a few months back.

A note to my fellow bloggers:

Please know that your readers need to know the truth. They are reading and following your blog because they trust and value your opinion. The brand may love you and send you more stuff for praising their products even if it sucks. But remember, your credibility is the one at stake here. Once you lose your reader’s trust, it’s going to be so hard to win it back. Believe me.

    Nail polishes are so tricky indeed and when they’re bad, they’re really really bad! So many ones claim that they last for several days but have yet to discover it, feels like it can’t be done unless in a salon! Xx

    Usually for me, I use… I use… I… Kidding. No I don’t use anything on my nails but I was curious about what gel polish is. I have one thought immediately after reading your post. I lost interest in knowing what gel polish is after reading and would like to commend you on sharing your personal experience.

    Although this is a negative post, there are two positives here.

    1. You will say how you feel or as you experienced. Readers will know that now.

    2. For the company who owns that brand, put up of shut up. What do I mean by that? It means they either change their formulation, or if they truly stand behind their product, then they could perhaps contact you and work with you on the use of the product and see if the result will be better or remain the same.

    Good job, my friend! #AmazingLifeDaily

    so this is like a no curing required gel polish like those from sally hansen? i haven’t heard of this brand before, actually.
    if the formulation is too thick, is there anyway to apply it anymore thinly, i wonder? So far I’ve only tried the no curing required gel polish from loreal and they were great! haven’t tried sally hansen’s though.

    Loving the shades of these! It’s the first time I heard of Solique. But I love the name and the branding already. I wonder what’s the difference between liquid and get polish?

      Gel polished are supposed to have better staying power. Sadly, that’s not the case with Solique Gel Polish. 🙁

    Glad to read this review. I was already thinking : Will this be something new for me. Now I only and always use Essie or Opi. And I’m glad to read your opinion. Won’t try this out.

    Oooooooh I love gel polish! I tend to get in mani’s in the salon and always get the gel. I have never heard of Solique though. It’s disappointing that it wasn’t to you liking, especially that it smells nasty but great that you let us all know 🙂

    Back in 2013, I decided never to have a manicure or pedicure anymore. That may change in the next few years but so far, I still stand at that decision for 3 yrs now. That was because my toe nail got infected, it took months, as in months to heal (Got it while I was pregnant and it was still there even after I gave birth!). So I don’t know what a gel polish is anymore. I’m sorry to hear about your experience and I’m glad you spoke your mind, you’re right. The readers need to know everything, we can’t sugar coat our reviews.

    This is what I call an honest review and a perfect blog post. Your opinions about this Gel polish reflect what this product is worth. Especially since it comes after a personal experience

  9. August 28, 2016 / 3:15 am

    that’s what is most common to bloggers these days. You know, instead of giving out their opinion in all honesty, they doubt of providing the real cons of the item for some reasons. I just hope that bloggers will note that it is best to always point out the real cons should there is and that readers should be informed.

  10. August 28, 2016 / 12:52 pm

    Love the fact that this is such an honest review. Will stay away from trying these for sure, so much of trouble saved :).

  11. August 28, 2016 / 5:44 pm

    Thanks for the super honest review. I’m not good at applying nail polish and honestly the cheap brands make it more difficult for me. Luckily, I discovered Revlon when they released the Revlon Parfumerie and I never used another brand since then. Sadly, they have limited colors available.

  12. August 28, 2016 / 8:45 pm

    This is a brave revelation. I do often notice that some bloggers who write about products all focused on the good side. But your post shows that opposite side.. Well the truth is priceless, who knows this might signal the manufacturer to improve their product..

    I think many review bloggers feel pressure to give a good review and I appreciated your honesty. I have a hard time with the nail thing because I hate constantly having to repolish.

    my Malaysian friends keeps on bugging me if these nail polish are Halal. I haven’t tried and reviewed it so might as well inquire someone who did.

  15. August 31, 2016 / 6:07 am

    I have to say that I didn’t liked the formula at all. I’ve tried a couple of times now, but I can’t seem to get my nails cute. I am, however, working with a brand and so far I’m in love with their nail polishes!

  16. August 31, 2016 / 6:28 pm

    Regarding your last point – *high five*. A brand once sent me something to review and I ended up having an allergic reaction so I off course told people (well wrote in my blog) to be cautious and be aware that i had a reaction to it. The company went mental at me, they wanted me to take it down, the marketing man slammed the phone down on me etc. I still got the post up and I hasn’t seen this brand since. So it always good to be honest to people. xx

      Yes, we owe it to our readers to be honest. Good thing this brand hasn’t gone mental on me yet. Haha!

    I haven’t tried Gel Polish. They said it’s all worth the money because it really last longer.Thanks so much for sharing this and sharing your honest experience!will definitely try this out!

  18. September 3, 2016 / 3:26 pm

    I’ve never heard of Solique before and I’ve never tried gel polish ever. I do sometimes try out cheap nail polishes and from your description, it sounded like one. I’m glad you posted one honest review about it. I’m just wondering where you got these from though?
