Girly Bits Slapdash Collection

Oh hey there - today I am going to share with you all my swatches from the Slapdash collection releases by Girly Bits.

I was introduced to this collection, and to the line itself, by my awesome pal Silver - I think we both knew that I needed to have the polish 'Banana Hammock' in my life asap - but that is besides the point!

Unfortunately when I put my order in, Cu Blue was out of stock - Pam had contacted me and gave me a few options on what I could do about the out of stock lovely.. I told her to just grab another polish and toss it in with the rest.. Side note: I love these polish and will have to complete the collection at some point in time.


As I mentioned, Cu Blue was out of stock, so in its place I received Sailors Delight - and I'm actually pretty happy about it - I feel that gem fits right in with the rest of these bad boys!


Banana Hammock.. A great name and a great polish! I freaking LOVE yellow nail polish.. Though sometimes I feel my skin tone looks a little strange with it - I honestly do not care. I'd wear it no matter what! This is a great banana yellow (obviously..) with some light blue shimmer tossed in - you cannot really see it in this photo - but trust me, it is there. This is 4 coats.


Glo Worm. Green. Bright. Golden yellow shimmer. LOVE! I think if I went with one more coat - it would have been perfect.. Or I could toss something underneath.. It is amazing. This is 3 coats.


Jelly Shoes.. It is stunning. In this photo, you can see the shimmer this polish gives off. It is bright and wonderful.. And of course the name has me thinking of those classy summer jelly sandals.. This is only 2 coats!


Arctic Sunrise.. At first, looking at this polish in the bottle, I was sort of like 'oh, meh'.. Then I put it on and basically starting fist pumping - the shimmer really makes this polish something special. It is purple-y and lovely. This is 3 coats.


And my random toss in - Sailors Delight. It is a blood orange colour with extra orange shimmer. I know it doesn't belong in this specific collection, but I do not feel like it is out of place - it fits right in - and I'm really quite happy to have it as a part of my collection now. This is 4 coats.

Overall I am extremely happy with these colours. They don't say summer, they scream it in your face with a healthy dusting of shimmer. I can see some fun skittle activity with these at some point!!

Also, Pam was a delight to talk to during the process of trying to figure out what to do about Cu Blue. AND.. this is all based in Canada. I didn't know - and when the package arrived, I was jazzed. If any of you get a chance, go check out her polish - they are lovely and definitely well worth it!!

ALSO.. I did get in contact with the winner of Sicks 'n Stones - Faiza Q had that gem shipped off to her last Friday, so hopefully it arrives somewhat soon - just because the waiting game kind of sucks!!

AND.. my friend Tina, from my nail polish birthday group, started up a blog of her own - so you should go check it OUT

I have also added a little link on the side bar (on the right) to my newly made facebook fan page, as well as a link to my twitter. I think that is all I had to catch up on..

Well, have an awesome day everyone! See you all again soon!!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
