Solique Gel Polish by GirlStuff Launch

Happy Thursday AMW Friends!  If you follow me on Instagram, you were probably flooded with my #SoliqueByGirlStuff posts!  I'm sorry, I was just extremely excited  because I am working again with the brand I wholeheartedly love!  GirlStuff Polishes.

You've probably seen my first collaboration with the brand a couple of months ago via GirlStuff Bloggers' Elite Summer Collection and so far, I'm happy with the outcome!  Thank you so much to those who bought not only AskMeWhats polish but the rest of the "Blogger" Shades!

When President of JRadiance Corporation, Dra. Janina Tan messaged me to help her out for her Gel Polish launch, I said yes in no time!  

So here I was, haggard-looking but still happy!  Thanks Mr. AMW for this test shot!  I realized I don't have a "formal" photo because I was so busy running around!

Dress: Something Borrowed, Shoes: Zalora

The event was held at Chef Jessie, Rockwell.  After all the guests get to have their photos taken, they were ushered to the registration booth to pick their "passport" as a guide on how to enjoy several activities prepared by the brand.

Benefit Porefessionally Pretty booth was there for a free Make-upper and a Brow Bar for participants to enjoy a free brow waxing session.

Everyone got to try Benefit's Bestselling products!

Most of the guests were lined up to try Solique Gel Polish for the first time.  Solique Gel Polish is a 2-step system containing a GEL COLOR = GEL TOPCOAT.

The 2 must be used together and is activated by the sun --- no UV lamp required!  As of the moment, there are a total of 6 shades to choose from!

I picked a matte gray shade called "Love me Like You Do".  I am so in love with this shade!

A surprise booth of Eternity Scarf was there for participants to pick their choice of scarf from TSG Clothing.  I love all the colors and designs, I want them all!  

Guests were also gifted with a choice of statement ring that goes well with their "Soliqued-nails"!

And just when they thought the festivities is over, they were all given a box of goodies from Nippon Esthetics

As soon as they completed all the fun-filled activities, they can go straight to the main area to relax and enjoy the presentation!  They were also treated with an afternoon snack from Chef Jessie.

The event was hosted by, none other than...the very pretty and talented *ahem* Nikki Tiu!  *laughs*  It was an honor for me to stand in front of the stage to share the good news about Solique with Ms. Janina!

It was a day of celebration for Modern Women!  We made this event as relaxing and as fun as possible because we want to pamper our guests!  Our guests are all Modern Women who take on the world --- taking full charge of various responsibilities in life --- as an employee, friend, sister, mom, etc...  And because we have so many things to worry about in our daily lives, Solique made sure to lessen the worry by creating worry-free, easy-to-apply, safe and inexpensive Gel Polish.

I had a quick interview with Dra. Janina-Gutierrez Tan and I learned so much about Solique and I'm sure the guests did too!

Team AMW!
Mr AMW was there not only for moral support but he was the one who took all the photos of the guests and the event itself!
As for my sister-in-law Grace, she shared her talent by designing the "backdrop" of the stage!

I am so thankful to have such supportive family!  Seeing them giving me thumbs-up sign and a smile really puts me at ease and inspired me to do 200%

And lastly, I have to mention this last because words can't express my gratitude to Janina, for the trust and for always believing in my service!  She isn't just someone I work for/with but she's also a good friend whom I share personal stories with!

Janina, I can't wait for more collaborations with you and the brand and with your dedication to create wonderful polishes in the market, I won't be surprised if the brand would be known worldwide!

What is your favorite gel shade?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. I like Love me like you do. It's a very "undead" gray :) Haha

  2. YES. Non-uv-lamp gel polish. Now I can finally try gel polish at the regular risk rate of skin cancer. Kidding :)) I'm sure UV lamps aren't that harmful, but maybe 30 years down the line, we'll be a generation of beauty addicts who have aggressively aged fingertips


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
