Eureka Moment: Nail Polish that's Safe and Inexpensive!

Nail polish enthusiast like myself would love to use nail polish for the rest of our lives! I cannot even imagine myself wearing open toed sandals without polish on!  But there's always a huge question at the back of my head that's bugging me... THE BIG 3 --- Formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate.

Base on research, formaldehyde is carcinogenic while toluene and dibutyl phthalate are toxins that can affect one's central nervous and reproductive systems.

UH OH....

So we're on to search for safe polish to use right?  I can hear literally hear you complaining..."Say what?... Expensive?" 

EUREKA MOMENT!!!!
I finally found a polish that's affordable and does not contain the BIG 3!!! 

GIRLSTUFF NAIL POLISH
You wouldn't believe how I got to know about this brand!  When I attended Studio SnR x Bobbi's Mastering the Basics workshop, I met my seatmate Janina (who also signed up for the workshop) and she saw my nail art and told me about the Girlstuff polish!  Now, I tell you why I love going out on events,  I meet a lot of cool people!!!

GirlStuff nail polish is made in France and repackaged in the Philippines.  They are free from chemicals so I was told the polishes are safe to use for all ages!  Even pregnant women, teens or young girls who like to be just like their moms can use this!

Here's the best part!  Each bottle costs Php99.75/Approx $2.00!  

The product states to be vibrant in color and shine, durable, streak-free in application and dries quickly!  I'll confirm after a couple of usage so do check back for more in-depth reviews!

I currently own these 3 shades...

Machiatto

 Electric Blue

Olive



To those who can't wait....
GirlStuff is available in SM Children's Accessories Department in Mall of Asia, North, Ortigas, Makati, Dasmarinas, Las Pinas, Clark and Fairview.  Rustans Childrens' Accessories Section.


Here are the shades available for us to drool on!

Are you as excited as I am to try more shades?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
