Girly Bits ~ Hulk Smash!
Green jelly with shredded purple glitter and blue shimmer
Here’s just a short post to show you my latest Girly Bits polish: Hulk Smash. I like the idea of the purple glitter in the green base, I think it’s cool when things don’t always match.
It was clear to me that this polish need underwear. I have just bought a green polish from OPI called “Forrest my case”. It’s a polish that’s sold exclusively in Sephora, and I snatched it really cheap last time I was there. OPI normally costs US$22 here, and I got this for US$6, so that was a really good bargain for me! And I have a question : Do the OPI team think that Forest is actually spelled with a double R, or is there some obscure reference to Forrest Gump that I’m not getting, here?? Tip: there’s a difference between being amusingly zany and being tediously pretentious (or dumbass), with the names and all. Just saying.
I applied one coat of the OPI. If I should wear it on its own I would have applied two coats, but this is only underwear. When that was dry I applied two coats of Hulk Smash!. Drying time is on the slow side, and the glitter was not really cooperative. I had to fish for it, and it was really a challenge to get it to spread nicely and evenly on the nails.
I applied a layer of Poshé top coat and this is what my final mani got to look like:
I like the purple glitter, and I love the blue shimmer, it’s so pretty against the green. On this picture you can really see it:
I find it difficult to be creative with this polish. I mean – there’s already a lot going on, so it’s hard to figure out what to add to make it look even cooler.
Here are the two polishes that fit so perfectly together:
I like the Hulk Smash!, but I must admit that I’m a little bit disappointed in both coverage, application and drying time. The polish is cool so it gets to stay for a bit, but I did consider whether this is a keeper or not. It’s a shame, because I really want to like Girly Bits’ polishes! (Edit: I have indeed already found a new loving home for it! <3)
Have you girls any experience with the brand? And do you like the look of this?
For the record: This mani left my nails totally yellow! I have tried everything to get rid of the heavy staining: Pure acetone, lemon juice, toothpaste, baking powder, bicarbonate and even bleach! And my nails stayed yellow through all this. I guess that means that both of these polishes have to go, since I don't know who the true sinner is! >:( I have a feeling that it is a combination of the two.
If you've got advice about how to get rid of yellow staining of the nails, then please, please, please share in the comments below. I'll be you forever grateful if you know how I can get rid of it.
