Glitter Gal Holographic Nail PolishesJuly 15, 2013
Anna Szabo and Kerry Howell have been friends for nearly 20 years. When they first met working at a law firm, the two gals bonded over their passion for makeup and their desire to leave the corporate culture.
Anna, a true Aussie with the spirit of adventure, went out and created a private label cosmetics business, making products for some of the biggest Asian and Australian companies. Kerry, a former model and makeup artist, went on to get married. They kept in touch over the years and talked often about creating their own line.
Anna’s husband, a special effects colour technician one day introduced the two to non traditional colour pigments. This began the Glitter Gal's quest to create a unique colour line inspired by the spirit of Australia.
“We began mixing our own formulas and started selling our products online. We got a phenomenal response from the blogging community. We knew immediately that we were on to something unique.We wanted to produce proprietary quality formulas with quick to market lead times. We knew that doing so would take a big investment. We dove head first by taking our retirement savings to create our own labs and buying manufacturing equipment. We've Made a lot of sacrifices, and its been a long ride, but we've never once looked back!" says Anna optimistically. "That's the Aussie way!"
