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!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
