NOTD Must-Have: Girl Stuff Bloggers’ Elite Summer Collection

April 2, 2015

Last Monday, over overflowing cupcakes and chocolates, we said hello to the hottest and most colourful nail candies this season, the Girl Stuff Bloggers’ Elite Summer Collection.


Topaz Horizon (chartreuse), AskMeWhats (bohemian pink)
Struttingonsunshine (sky blue), GoJackieGo (lime green)
For starters, bohemian pink has been named after the blog AskMeWhats. Behind this blog is working mom Nikki Tiu. An HR professional who moonlights as a make-up artist, Nikki is a nail art enthusiast who absolutely adores the color pink. The moment she laid eyes on Girl Stuff AskMeWhats, she fell in love with it. “Girl Stuff’s bohemian pink is not the usual pink shade that you see in other polish brands. AskMeWhats is an extraordinary , very feminine shade. Kind of like an orchid because of its lilac undertone. What’s more, it reminds me of my Mom whose favorite color is lilac. This perfect blend of pink and lilac reflects a very young, cheerful vibe just like my personality. “

Fashion entrepreneur, event organizer and blogger Christina Decena’s Struttingonsunshine blog inspired Girlstuff’s sky blue shade. “What struck me the most with this blue shade is its brilliance! I see sunny skies and cerulean seas… This shade speaks to me. It’s like a dreamy cruise in a bottle!” she enthuses. “It’s the perfect shade for me because it encapsulates my wanderlust for the world!”

Girlstuff’s lime green shade reminds blogger Jackie Go of a tropical paradise. “Girlstuff totally nailed it with this shade. It has captured the calming hue of nature. And this type of shade works well with any skin tone. So it’s a perfect shade to frolic in this summer.” A mother of two and a model, Jackie’s blog Go Jackie Go is a channel for spreading good news and good vibes to women.

The market head of a baby magazine, blogger Frances Amper Sales’ sunnier-than-the-sun disposition is best captured in Girlstuff’s chartreuse shade. “This yellow shade is so bright and happy, you just won’t be able to ignore it! It’s bold and fun!” she pronounces. On her Topaz Horizon blog, she shares stories of her many roles as a woman.
I would usually shy away from shades this bright and sunny but they're so creamy and shiny, I wanted them all in a heartbeat! Here are some nail swatches from Girl Stuff:

AskMeWhats (bohemian pink), Struttingonsunshine (sky blue)
GoJackieGo (lime green), Topaz Horizon (chartreuse)

Apart from the collection, the usual beauty suspects and I also got to play with other Girl Stuff nail lacquers and accessories. Yes, we're like in a very girly playground! :)


It's my first time to try Girl Stuff nail lacquers and I must say I'm impressed! They're validated to be 5-FREE where each formula (imported and manufactured in France and bottled locally) does not contain any of the 5 harmful chemicals usually found in other polish: toulene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. This assures us that the lacquers we apply are gentle on our nails and won’t cause any damage and yellowing usually caused by formaldehyde-infused nail lacquers. The best part? These high quality nail lacquers only cost from Php 100-150 each. That's so much cheaper than other leading imported brands!

*swoon*

Mmmmmm such a pretty line-up!

These are the 3 shades that immediately won me over that afternoon:


Coupled with these fimo clay candies and dotting tool, I went crayyyyy! :)


Not my usual polish persona but I love it!

This morning, I woke up itching to paint my nails but they were still fresh and pretty from last Monday (thanks to their well-loved sophisticate gel-type formula) so here are more swatches of the Bloggers Elite Collection peppered with some fimo clay and studs. Can you tell I'm super obsessed and fixated? :)
