Agoo Bengzon line for Solique nail polish

Since the coming holidays will have lots of sparkle and dazzle, expect shades of reds, metals, and other arresting hues to add color to the occasion.

Start getting in the celebratory mood by painting your nails a cheerful palette, as seen in beauty expert Agoo Bengzon’s new collaboration with Girlstuff’s gel polish brand Solique.

Solique x Agoo is a three-piece collection of gel polish that doesn’t need UV and soaking. Free from harmful chemicals, the products, when applied on nails, cure well in natural light (as opposed to the old-fashioned method of curing with UV light). They also dry well within minutes, contain a high-shine finish, and can easily be removed with ordinary polish removers.


Retailing for P180, the gel polish comes in three alluring shades: Posse (a deep, cerulean blue which, in low light, can look royal black); Smitten (a vibrant magenta that draws attention as soon as the light hits it); and Cloud (a unique mauve peppered with flecks that give off a subtle, nude glow).

Thanks to Agoo’s beauty expertise, each product exudes a dramatic change on one’s nails— whether you lean toward loud colors or just prefer to blend in like a wallflower.

Gel polish has a set of benefits not present in other types. For one, it lasts longer than traditional lacquer due to its formula. It can last you a week without chipping, hence, your nails are protected from the elements.


Being opaque, gel polish can also mask any unsightly things underneath your nails.

If I’ve convinced you enough, make sure to take care of your nails.

Keep your gel polish game strong and avoid a few things like drying hand sanitizers and hot water that will peel
it away.

Moisturize your nails with trusty cuticle oil.

Every few days, remember to gently file chipped edges and reapply with the recommended gel coat—in this case, the Solique Gel Top Coat.


Solique x Agoo Gel Polish is available at kiosks in select SM Department Stores, Glorietta, and Alabang Town Center. Visit,
