With the alessandro Striplac Hippie Nights nail polish, the brand plays the midnight nail trend. The intense purple color takes you into the twilight of the night, with a mysterious effect as a result.

The treatment consists out of six steps. In this review I will explain every step and I will show you the result with pictures.
Step 1 //
You start with cleaning the surface of your nails. You can do this with the included cleansing pads. After you cleaned your nails, you apply a thin coat of the Twin coat. This is the base coat and will protect your nails. Don't brush the coat on your cuticles, then the polish might not stay for 10 days. So make sure you only paint your nails. If the polish gets onto your skin, remove it with the included Striplac correction pen before curing under the LED lamp.
Step 2 //
Now the base coats needs to cure under the LED lamp. Place your finger under the LED lamp and press the button. After 30 seconds the device will automatically turn off. NOTE: Don't look into the light, because it can damage your eyes. Place every finger under the LED lamp and wait 30 secondes. After you did this, you can feel that the polish feels moist, this is the dispersion layer or sticky residue and you can remove this after the manicure with the Striplac cleansing pads. I experienced that my nails where getting warm under the LED lamp and sometimes it hurts a little bit.
Step 3 //
I choose to apply the color Hippie Nights (which is a purple color). You need to shake the bottle before use. I then applied a thin layer on the top of the base coat and used the LED lamp to cure every nail. In the meantime I was watching Netflix so make sure you don't have to sit out every 30 seconds, because then the whole ritual will take a while ;).
Step 4 //
After I applied the first layer, I then applied one more layer. As you can see on the picture, two layers is enough for me. Also, I wasn't really planning on going through the whole ritual (read: 10 times 30 secondes) again.
Step 5 //
To protect and seal the color polish, I applied another TWIN coat. Then again you need to use the LED lamp per nail for 30 secondes. I experienced some pain because the LED lamp became a bit warm.
Step 6 //
Eventually I removed the dispersion layer from my nails using the Striplac cleaning pads. And I need to say, those pads smell amazing!
My nails look like they are done in a Nail salon! Very glossy, and scratch- resistant. It took me some time to get my nails perfect and the proces takes a while, but the result is stunning and it lasts for at least 10 days.
I had to take my nailpolish off after a few days. When removing the nail polish I carefully peeled up the edges. Then I could carefully peel of the nail polish. It goes really easy and my nails don't look that horrible after.
Overall experience //
I love it! The fact that my nails look amazing and the polish stays on for a very long time is great. Also the fact that you can bring this Travel and Repair mini everywhere is awesome. The small LED lamp is easy to use and fits in my smallest bag! The proces takes up some time, but the end result will last you with beautiful nails up to ten days.
