Back in July, a black holographic nail polish made this beauty blogger go gaga, and it was called Le Métier de Beauté Chrome Passion Nail Polish from the Nordstrom-exclusive Rock ‘n’ Romance nail polish set (US$25 for 4 minis). I was so crazy about this little nail polish that I even asked sweet Danielle of Bloomin’ Beauty to custom purchase a set for me (thanks again girl!). In real life it doesn’t disappoint, and it was the definite star of the set.
Recently, Soulstice Spa Troy Nail Polish ($8.50 at NailPolishCanada.com) came into my life. Hmm, Troy sure looked familar. As luck would have it, it’s a dead on dupe of my beloved Chrome Passion.

This is the first time I tried the Soulstice Spa brand, and honestly I am blown away. The products are free of the toxic trio — toluene, formaldehyde and DBP (click here to read more information), and are also vegan. I have pathetic, sensitive eczema hands and constantly wearing and taking off nail polish makes them itch and burn, so I appreciate that these do not contain nasty chemicals.
Can I also talk about the smell? As in, there is none. I always get a little light headed when I paint my nails, but Soulstice Spa’s nail polish is scent-free. Great for someone whose boyfriend/husband/brother/father usually complains about the room smelling like a cheap nail salon. Here’s another photo, just so you can appreciate the holo glitter that just blows my mind.

I have to say that Soulstice Spa Troy is even better Le Métier de Beauté Chrome Passion. In the photos, I’m wearing two coats of Troy and three coats of Chrome Passion. Incredible, right?
