A few weeks back, I was invited to the grand launch of Girlstuff Bloggers' Elite Summer Collection. I was looking forward to the event to show my support of my fellow bloggers. Plus I also wanted to learn more about Girlstuff. I was also really intrigued because usually summer is the time I tend to experiment with more colors for my nails. It's the time to be carefree, be vibrant and have a "go for it" attitude.
We were greeted with this colorful, summery and cute display of pastries and nail polishes and even nail art materials!
Before the event started, we were told we can get our nails done and even get nail art, so here I am feeling donya-donyahan.
I chose this beautiful blue shade from the Bloggers' Elite Summer Collection:
And here are a few colors that caught my eye too:
Ms. Janina Tan, owner of Girlstuff shared with us how Girlstuff started. It was when she had a daughter and they both wanted to play with polishes. Thus the birth of their kid-friendly washable nail polish line. And after that, Girlstuff just grew and grew.
They boast of being 5Free. Their nail polishes are free from formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phtalate, campher and formadaldehyde-resins. These chemicals are usually found in other nail polishes. She said that sometimes you get dizzy when you're getting your nails done, it's because you take in and inhale those chemicals. Because Girlstuff polishes are free from these chemicals, you also don't have to worry about getting yellow nails because the polishes are gentle on the nails.
As if their summer collection of four sophisticate shades aren’t enough to excite you all, Girlstuff just forged a tie-up with Manila’s widely followed, sassiest lifestyle, fashion, mommy and beauty bloggers. Each shade in the Bloggers’ Elite Summer Collection has been specially named after their popular blogs.
First stop is Frances Amper Sales of www.topazhorizon.com:
An editor-in-chief 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.
Next is Jackie Go of www.gojackiego.com:
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.

Then we have Christine Decena of www.struttingonsunshine.tumblr.com:
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!”

And finally, Nikki of www.askmewhats.com:
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. "
