Girly Bits ~ Flash your Tips



Girly Bits ~ Flash your Tips
Purple linear holo with green shimmer

Flash your Tips is from A Box In-Died from Llarowe from March 2014. I actually won the entire box in a Facebook giveaway, YAY!

The Girly Bits is definitely the star polish for me in that box, and therefore the first one I’m going to wear. The formula is good, just like I’ve come to expect from Girly Bits, and the polish is really easy to work with. I used two coats for my mani; I did consider a third coat but two did cover well enough. Drying time is pretty good.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat in the sun:


Look at all them purty rainbows!!


Here’s a low light picture. The colour almost shows itself as cornflower blue and the green shimmer make it worth wearing outside the sunshine too.


I stamped on it. I found a swirly motif on the plate Apipila-01 and I stamped with two colours: Sally Hansen “Whirlwind White” from the Insta-Dri series and Bourjois “Bleu Mystérieux”. I mixed the colours on the stamping plate before I stamped. I topcoated it with Poshé topcoat.

Here’s my final result in the sun:


Here’s the same thing in the lightbox:


I was happy to win that box of polishes because I would probably not have bought it myself.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo with added shimmer
Overall impression: Nice holo, I wish the shimmer was more prominent, because I honestly prefer this polish in the sunshine
Buy again: No

    1. I have bought a great deal of boxes, and I've liked the majority of the polishes I've gotten that way :)

  7. Pretty polish in the sun but a bit meh in the shade. I would loved it to have more green shimmer in the shade. After all most of us spend most of our time indoors. I liked your stamping. That made it look special.

    1. It's true, I would like to see even more of the green shimmer too. Often shimmers are too shy! :)
