Do you own any textured polishes? I’ve noticed that the types of textured finishes you end up with vary significantly depending on the brand. Some are only slightly textured while others feel like you could use one nail to file down another. Ha! One of my favorite things about textured polishes is that you usually get two stunning looks in one bottle! I have several textured polishes by Girlstuff and I love every one of them.
Today I’m showing you Girlstuff Masquerade, and since it’s a great shade for the upcoming holidays, I thought I would put my two cents in on this polish with a quick review. Masquerade is a beautiful, red-orange jelly loaded with tiny gold glitter.
Two generous coats will get you full coverage and this nice textured look. Three coats is even better.
Adding topcoat ups the shine factor significantly. The glitter comes alive and is so pretty.
I love wearing it both ways. Which do you prefer?
Masquerade dries quickly and has a great formula that is easy to work with. Cleanup was so easy with my flat makeup brush. I wore it for several days with only minor tip-wear. Removal was just what you would expect from a polish with glitter in it. It took a bit more rubbing than a creme polish would but was not difficult by any means. The wear time on this polish is longer if you use topcoat. As you can see, one coat of topcoat doesn’t provide a glass like finish. But it still looks great. This beauty retails for 150 PHP. (approx. 3.50 USD)
I love polishes that are easy to work with and look amazing! Girlstuff polishes score extra points with me in that they are 5-free meaning they contain no toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde resin, or camphor. They are perfect for my little girl who likes to have her nails looking pretty just like mommy. I’m thrilled to tell you that those of us living in Cebu will have access to the full selection from this brand very soon. In less than 3 weeks, Girlstuff Forever will be opening up a kiosk here in Cebu at Ayala. Yay!
How do you feel about textured polishes?
Have a fantastic day!
