Tried and Tested- Pupa Milano Lasting Color Gel Nail Polish in 017- Florida's Sunrise

Hey Guys!

Today I will be reviewing one of the newest nail polishes to hit the Pupa Milano range, the Lasting Color Gel Nail Polish in 017 Florida's Sunrise.

Pupa has launched quite an extensive range of colours in this gel-like nail polish range. You may view all the colours here:

The colour I received is number 017 called Florida's Sunrise which is a lovely Hot Pink shade. 

The nail polish comes in a sleek glass bottle with a grey-ish tap and contains 17 fl-oz/ 5ml of product and retails for 6 euro. The brush is described as being a'maxi flat applicator' due to being wider than normal nail polish brushes, containing 440 round-end bristles in order to help with easy application. I found that the brush does in fact help with easy application since you only need a few swipes on some fingers and just one swipe on the baby finger. The nail polish dries relatively fast which further helps with the easy application Pupa nail polishes try to achieve.

Pupa describes this nail polish range as making your nails look super shiny with a glassy effect and a super glossy finish with a volumizing, 3D effect texture.

I used two coats in order to achieve the desired, gel-like finish since the first coat was a bit chalky, however, Pupa does mention that two coats are needed to achieve the best result possible. You can see the difference one coat makes in the below photo. It is recommended that a base and top coats are used, however, I do not usually use any base or top coats.

I wore this nail polish for a whole week, as I mentioned previous, no base or top coat were used. As you can see from the photo below, after a week of wear, the nail polish was still quite presentable with chipping due to nail growth and minimal chipping at the tip of my nails. I noticed that after around 4/5 days my nails started to chip, however it was so minimal that you could barely notice it.

All in all, I really liked this Nail Polish, especially the colour which was quite a hit with a lot of people I met. Although the nail polish is small and may be viewed as being on the expensive side, with these types of formulas and brands, I prefer paying a little extra for the quality rather than for quantity.

I hope you liked this post.

Till next time.

*Disclaimer*- I was sent this product for free, however, I was not paid to write this review, moreover, the above review is a reflection of my true and honest opinion.


  1. I love Pupa, there eyeshadows especially! They are very pigmented and long lasting :)

    1. I agree, I tried two of their eyeshadows and I love them! I think this is probably my favourite product though!
