Soulstice Spa Troy

I have another Soulstice Spa polish to show you today! This one is called Troy.

Soulstice Spa Troy

It’s a charcoal shimmery polish with a weak scattered holo effect.

It has a quick-drying formula that applies best with a light touch, using somewhat thick coats and not going over the same spot more than once. Using that technique, I didn’t really have any problems with the application (although the photos are showing a bit of a bald spot on the side of my index that I didn’t notice in real life!).

The photos show two coats of Troy. These are true holo particles, not glitter, so it’s smooth even without topcoat.

The next two photos are in the shade.

And this last photo is under the Ott light. Subtle in terms of holo, but a really nice quick-drying charcoal!

Edit: Prompted by the comment from Derya, here’s a comparison of Troy to OPI My Private Jet (most recent version that is still available in stores) and Color Club Revvvolution. 🙂 (Photos taken under my Ott light this morning.)

As you can see My Private Jet, the brownish-charcoal scattered holo version, that is, is darker than Troy and has a reddish-brown shimmer flash to it. Revvvolution is more of a true grey charcoal with none of the brown that the other two have.

These swatches have two coats of each polish. In addition to being the lightest in colour, Troy was also the sheerest of the three. Revvvolution is the most opaque; it’s nearly a one-coater. It’s also different in that its holo is more linear rather than scattered. My Private Jet’s scattered holo is a bit more apparent than Troy’s.

  1. Amazing! I love this one. It reminds of OPIs Privat Jet though. Actually… a lot!

  2. Hi Arlix,

    That last picture sold me! I really love holos, but I absolutely hate glitter! Am I weird?

    Where is Soulstice sold? is it only online?

    How have you been? I haven’t written in a while. Sorry +(

    • Hi Sandy! I don’t think you’re weird! We all like different things… and holos and glitters are both sparkly, sure, but one is smooth and rainbowy and the other tends to be gritty, so it makes sense to me (although I do like glitters too)!

      I’ve been good, but very busy! Hoping things are going to calm down a bit now. How have you been? 🙂

      I think Soulstice has a physical spa location in the San Francisco area, but other than that as far as I know they’re only available online… I usually get them from Nail Polish Canada, but for US shipping they can also be ordered on Soulstice Spa’s own website.

      • Hi Arlix,
        I’m hanging in. One of my cats (one of the16 year- olds) is pretty sick, so it’s depressing. I just have to keep her as comfortable as I can. She’s still eating and cuddling and purring, so until that stops, I won’t put her down.

        Thanks for the info. I will check out their website.

        Have a good holiday, and talk to you soon!

      • I’m really sorry to hear that Sandy 😦 We went through a similar situation this summer with my parents’ 14 year old cat. He had cancer… He had weekly vet visits for subcutaneous fluids and an appetite stimulant which kept him relatively comfortable for a couple more months, at least… 😦 Hope your kitty stays as comfortable as possible for as long as possible *hugs*

    • And Sandy, I’m sorry for your cat too! I really hope she’s hanging in there and enjoying her time with you. Best of luck!
