Girlstuff Holiday Collection 2016 Swatches and Review

Hello lovely people! 

I’ve been away from the blog for a while, I know. I was in the US for 3 months and we traveled a lot so that wasn’t very conducive to doing nail art or blogging. But boy, we had a great time visiting with our family and friends in Texas!

I’ve got some swatches for you of a lovely holiday collection by one of my favorite polish brands. Girlstuff Forever’s Holiday Collection 2016 is inspired by some popular holiday indulgences. All three shades in this collection are lovely and I think they would all be considered work appropriate. All swatches are two coats with top coat too. 

Girlstuff Creme De La Creme Swatch

First up is Creme De La Creme! This is a creme polish with a bit of a shimmer that adds a lovely luster to your nails. It takes two coats for this lovely neutral color which I imagine would be flattering on most skin tones and is a great base color for any nail art.

Girlstuff You Had Me at Merlot! swatch

Next up is You Had Me at Merlot! This deep burgundy shade is also a creme that looks great in two coats. If you could see at my nail polish collection you would be able to tell I have a thing for dark polishes so you may guess that is my favorite of the lot. Your guess would be correct and, yes, I’m wearing it right now. :)

Girlstuff Death By Chocolate swatch

Finally, let’s finish off with Death By Chocolate. I love the name of this brown creme polish that actually looks like melted chocolate! Yum! This is also an two easy coats and it is such a nice shade of brown!

Overall, I like the Girlstuff Holiday Collection 2016 as it has bold and neutral colors that are inspired by food! Haha! You can expect the same great quality from these polishes as with other Girlstuff collections. I am always impressed by how well the polish holds up over time. Each of these retails for php 130 and can be purchased from one of the Girlstuff kiosks or directly from Girlstuff Forever. Check out Girlstuff on their website or Facebook to purchase your own Girlstuff polishes.

If you are planning on grabbing any or all of these for gifts for family or friends (or for yourself) this holiday, I would definitely recommend you also grab a bottle (or TEN) of their Fast Dry Top Coat. It’s like liquid magic, y’all!

Which one of these if your favorite? Now I feel like I need to hunt down some chocolate to nibble on. Ha! I hope you are having a great week. Make someone smile today!

Hugs,
Rach

Girlstuff Solique UV-Glow Top Coat

Howdy folks!

I’ve got an awesome product to share with you today! Introducing the new and amazing Girlstuff Solique UV-Glow Top Coat!

Girlstuff UV-Glow Solique Topcoat Swatch

How great is this topcoat? One easy coat of this and your nails will glow under any blacklight/UV light! The closer you are to the light source, the brighter the glow. So much fun, right?

Girlstuff Chill Gradient

This is what these nails look like in regular lighting. You can wear this as a topcoat over any polish or you could even wear this alone as a protective clear coat and still enjoy the glow under a blacklight.

Since this long-lasting topcoat is part of Girlstuff’s growing Solique Gel Polish line, you might want to check out my full review on the Solique Gel Polish line so you can see what you can expect from this Solique topcoat.

I’ve had a lot of fun with this product and I know you will too. Here’s a short video I took so you can see the glow in action!

Isn’t that great? This Solique UV-Glow Top Coat polish retails for Php 200 and can be purchased at one of the Girlstuff kiosks or directly from Girlstuff Forever. Check out Girlstuff on their website or Facebook to purchase your own Girlstuff polishes.

Girlstuff Rave Neon Collection Swatches and Review

Hi folks! I’ve got some fun swatches to share with you today.

Girlstuff Forever recently released their Rave Neon collection and I’ve got 3 out of the 4 polishes from the collection to share with you today. As you can expect with all Girlstuff polishes, these polishes dry very quickly and are vibrant and long-lasting! They are also easy to remove and did not cause any staining on my nails.

Pro tip: Always wear topcoat to prolong the life of your mani. Girlstuff Fast Dry Topcoat is my personal favorite. I can do my nails and go to bed 10 mins. later without waking up to sheet marks. Not even kidding you!

Now on to some swatches!

 Girlstuff Rave Neon Breakbeat Swatch

Breakbeat – This an eye-catching shade of orange that takes 2 coats for opacity. It’s definitely the one to pick if you want your nails to “pop”!

 Girlstuff Rave Neon Lounge Swatch

Lounge – If you like green polishes, I’m sure you will love this one. The color is so fun and out there! This one is opaque in 2-3 coats.

Girlstuff Rave Neon Chill Swatch

Chill – This one is my favorite of the three in the collection that I have. It’s a stand out blue that I’ve already worn twice. :) You can get by with 2 coats of this but I’ve used 3 here since I goofed and nicked my pinky nail after the second coat.

Techno – There is a bright pink shade in this collection but I don’t have it on hand to swatch. But I’m certain you will find it has the same quality as the three I have shared. If you are looking for a collection that will add some color to your digits, you have found it.

Each of these Girlstuff Rave Neon polishes retail for Php 120 and can be purchased at one of the Girlstuff kiosks or directly from Girlstuff Forever. Check out Girlstuff on their website or Facebook to purchase your own Girlstuff polishes.

I hope you have a great day! Don’t forget to make someone smile today!

Birthday Nail art with Girlstuff Chill

Hello lovely ladies!!

Today is my birthday! Woohoo! It’s been a great day too. My hubby surprised me with a music album of 40 songs by the very talented (and entertaining) Betty Hutton and later on, we are headed to my mother’s house for cupcakes and Oreo cheesecake! Yay!

I’ve been busy with several projects lately and my nails and blog have been on the back burner. I made sure to do my nails for a special occasion like my birthday and I’ve used a new polish sent to me by Girlstuff. They have recently launched their new Rave Neon collection and I chose Girlstuff Chill which is a fun blue shade. It is opaque in two easy coats and dries quickly.

Girlstuff Chill with stamping

I brushed a little glitter here and there and then stamped over it with my MJ XXVI stamping plate from MyOnline Shop. It’s simple but pretty. I’ve been wearing polish pretty consistently but haven’t taken the time to do any nail art. So I’m very happy to have a pretty design on my nails. Today.

I hope your day is as lovely as mine has been. Do something to make someone smile today!

Until next time,

Rach

Girlstuff Forever Holiday Collection 2015 Swatches

Hello loves!

I have been a bit busy the past few days with some holiday preparations. I’m sure many of you can relate. I spent part of my day doing some last minute shopping with my wonderful sisters. We had a blast hanging out as we usually do. I’ve finished cleaning  the kids room and weeding out the toys and clothes they have outgrown. I have butter set out in preparation for whipping up some cookies later, so I decided to take a moment to write a quick post to share some swatches with you of the Girlstuff Forever Holiday Collection 2015 which I received last week.

This collection is made up of three gorgeous shades that provide quite a bit of variety.

Girlstuff Utopia Swatch

Utopia is a gorgeous icy blue crelly loaded with silver shimmer. Two coats will give you full coverage. I love this one for the holidays and can totally see myself wearing this at other times of the year. Maybe during a beach vacation?

Girlstuff Zenith Swatch

Next up is Zenith, which is kind of a cross between a frosted and chrome polish. It is a two-coater and gives a very festive feel! I promise, any bubbles you see in this swatch were total user error. I was multitasking and running on too little sleep. Please forgive me. It is very pretty, and I’ve been enjoying wearing it the past several days.

I’ve saved my favorite of the lot for last. At first glance, I thought Temptation was dark blue with a slight color shift. Upon closer inspection, I realized it was a dark purple crelly loaded with blue shimmer. This is two coats and it is SO PRETTY you guys! The picture above really doesn’t do it justice at all. Behold the macro shot! ♥♥♥♥♥

Girlstuff Temptation Macro

Gorgeous isn’t it? I absolutely love polishes like this one.

Well, what do you think of this holiday collection by Girlstuff? Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you have plans to enjoy some quality time with the family during the holidays. I am thrilled to have my hubby around for the next two weeks. Have a great night (or day) and keep smiling!

Hugs,
Rach
