ABC challenge: Astra Expert Gel Effect 35 Lily Grace

Hi everyone!

Today we have letter L for our ABC challenge and I'm showing you a nail polish that has just been released. Astra n. 35 Lily Grace is one of 6 new Spring shades that Italian brand Astra added to its Expert Gel Effect nail polish line.

Two coats, no top coat.


Astra Expert Gel Effect 35 Lily Grace

"Romantic, timeless elegance of wisteria" inspired this shade, and I can't but agree with that. I love flowers and I have a wonderful wisteria in front of my house. This nail polish is the same shade of its flowers. And of some crocus in my garden, too. It's a colour that definitely reminds me of Spring and that I really like to wear during this season.

Astra Expert Gel Effect 35 Lily Grace

Astra n. 35 Lily Grace's formula is a little different than other nail polishes from the Expert Gel Effect line. It's less watery, thicker and more opaque, but it still applies very smooth and easy. It loses some gel effect, being less watery makes it less glossy. But I am talking about comparing it to its "sister polishes". On its own it's still extremely glossy.

Would I recommend it? Absolutely! If you stumble across an Astra counter don't hesitate purchasing some bottles from this line!

How do you like the colour? Is it something you like wearing during Spring?

  3. Ho qualcosa di simile, seppur non "effetto gel". E' un punto di colore che mi piace un sacco ma, non so il perché, astra non ha fatto scattare in me il desiderio di avere i loro colori "noiosi", come invece mi capita con altri brand :(

  7. This is such a light, springy shade. This kind of lilac with greyish undertones is one of my favourites for Spring. Great swatch!

  9. I love being able to see brands that we don't have access to in the US-- this is such a lovely pale purple. It definitely reminds me of wisteria as well!

  10. I like that colour too! I've noticed on the bottle that it's a maxi brush - I've find it easy to work with those kind of brushes.

    1. It's not as big as the OPI but it's not the standard small brush either. Quite easy to use!
