Girlstuff is a local beauty brand that offers high-quality, trendy, and safe nail polish at prices you can afford. Every Girlstuff polish is developed in and imported from France with the Filipina’s needs and preferences in mind. Girlstuff polish is absolutely 5-FREE! This means it does not contain any of the 5 harmful chemicals commonly found in other polishes: namely, Toulene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin, and camphor. Mani-pedi lovers can rest assured that Girlstuff’s gentle formula won’t cause any damage and/or yellowing—a side-effect associated with formaldehyde-infused nail polishes.
This is the second color I tried from the brand, and I definitely like the first one - Machiatto - much more. Note, though, that this might be because I'm cool-toned. It looked lovely on a friend of mine, who's warm-toned and a shade or so darker than myself. As I mentioned in my review of Machiatto, this is also a bit tricky to put on. One coat is way too light - 2-3 easily runs the risk of too much, such that the formula gets bubbly and ugly after just one dip in water. It's hard to argue with the price, but if you're not very good at doing your own nails I wouldn't recommend this brand. If you have the time and the tools, though, I suppose give this a shot.3 months ago
Of the three colors I bought from Girl Stuff, this is my least favorite. It's ok, but I found it just a tad too dark and maybe too plain and flat for me. I can see using another color on top of this to either lighten it up or just change the color a bit. My bad too for thinking I would be into something this dark, as my preferences tend to be for the lighter shades. But with this price tag, defo no regrets at all.over 1 year ago
i love how shiny it is after application.. so chocolatey it makes me want to eat my nails.. wink.. makes my fingers (hands and feet) look a lot fairer and sexier.. great pigmentation.. brush size is perfect for an easy application.. great addition to my girlstuff and orly polishes. thanks BeautyMNLover 1 year ago
