On our nails today is a new discovery. Named Girlboss*, the only way to describe this nail polish is
fairy mermaid dust in a bottle. It’s pink, it’s sparkly, and did we mention it’s sparkly?
Girlboss is one of the magical offerings from local Gold Coast brand, Julisa. Founded by two BFFs, it only makes sense to have a product in their range named Girlboss. Created for “mermaids with green souls”, Julisa is the perfect example of beauty with a conscious. The brand is vegan-friendly and 100% cruelty free. Their signature 5-free nail polish formula contains NO formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor. As if that wasn’t enough, Julisa has its sights set well and truly set on painting the earth green, with 5% of their profits donated to environmental sustainability initiatives. Phew! Girlbosses indeed. There are 15 shades in Julisa’s range, all with equally genius names!
Scrolling through Julisa’s online store, Girlboss stopped us in our tracks. It’s no secret that we’re partial to the odd glitter polish, so adding this cotton candy pink bottle to our collection was a no-brainer. Like a true #Girlboss, it demands attention but at the same time is understated. The nail polish is littered with pink and gold flecks of glitter that sparkle under the light in the most subtle way. 2-3 coats of Girlboss will give you a semi-opaque finish. It also makes the perfect top coat. Apply a coat over your favourite polish for some added dazzle.
Formulation wise, we’ve been impressed so far with its longevity. 3 days in and our nails are chip free which is amazing by any standard. Glitter polishes can have a grainy finish, but you don’t have to worry about that with this. The fine shimmery particles give a smooth finish. So you don’t have to worry about it snagging on your clothes even without a top coat, because we know that Girlbosses ain’t got time for that!
