Secret Cupid Gifts Me Girly Bits!!

Hello Everyone!! Today I have 3 very gorgeous Girly Bits polishes to show you!!! I received these for Valentine's Day in a secret cupid gift exchange!  My friend, Emily, had my name and she spoiled me SO much!!!  You can find her on her blog, http://doctorphilegood.blogspot.com/, or on Instagram as @DrPhileGood.
 
You can purchase Girly Bits from http://girlybits.bigcartel.com/, Llarowe - Girly Bits, and Harlow & Co. - Girly Bits. Prices vary from $10 to $13 depending on the item (some are higher due to materials) and the shop. Another couple of places to order are Mei Mei Signatures and Overall Beauty.  So many options to get your Girly Bits!! ;-) And with so many different shades, I'm sure there is something for everyone!
 
A great way to stay up to date on Girly Bits is through Facebook! Pam, the owner, updates restocks and includes swatches of colors! Another great way to see upcoming collections is by following Pam's Blog! Harlow & Co. - Facebook, Llarowe - Facebook, Overall Beauty - Facebook, and Mei Mei Signatures - Facebook.
 
I have a ton of pictures today...and got a little Matte happy mid swatching...lol
 
First up, Long Winter's Nap!
 

This is 2 coats with Clearly On Top by KBShimmer.  I love the dusty color to this, along with the little pops of blue, dark blue, and silver glitters. 



Yummy bottle shot!!  I love blue, so this is definitely a keeper in my book!  It just has so many beautiful shades of blue in it!



Close up!!


For the next mani, I used a base of 2 coats of Zoya Lotus.   Love the pink shimmer in it!


You can purchase Lotus HERE! This is a Share the Love link, which is a way for me to earn points through them! So cool for me, but you guys can get something too! See what Zoya wrote: Remember EVERYONE WINS with "Share the Love": When someone clicks on your personal link and sets up an online account, a $5 coupon a coupon for a FREE Bottle of Zoya Nail Polish will automatically be placed in their account and can be used immediately on their current order. TIP: If you use this coupon and add 2 more polishes to your order, you get free shipping too! The coupon will appear in the "My Coupons/ Promos" section of their "My Account" Page.

Pretty great deal! I don't see any promotions right now, but I was able to get a bottle of their Qtica Growth Stimulator https://www.artofbeauty.com/rd/0111DC19 (another link!) for the price of shipping (a $20 value!) through all their gifts of Share the Love points - didn't even do anything! Zoya had other promotions over the Holiday season, so they should be bringing back more prizes for Share the Love points soon! YAY! I have some more points that I can't wait to use. :-D


I then topped with Heirloom and finished with a coat of Clearly On Top by KBShimmer.


What a stunning mix of glitters!! Pinks, purples, and silver!  I love it!

 
Lotus was a bit difficult to capture, but I think this is a great shot for color accuracy!


 
Close up!!


Then I decided to go for the Matte About You by Essie!  1 coat over top, and this was as smooth as satin!


Love, love, love how this turned out!




I know, a billion pictures, but isn't it so pretty!?

 
Close up!  The shimmer of Lotus is still coming through a little bit!  Love these two together!


Last but not least, we have Visions of Sugar Plums!


This is two coats, with Clearly On Top by KBShimmer.


How gorgeous is this purple jelly with these iridescent glitters?! They glow like crazy!  I love it.



Close up!! Doesn't this look crazy?  My camera may have spazzed out a bit, but overall, it's that flashy in person!


And because I can...I topped it with Matte About You by Essie.


Can we say love at first sight?!



I know I'll be rocking this often.  I want to layer this too!  I love the squishy purple jelly by itself, but I can think of a few fun combos I must try!




Close up!! Am I the only one drooling here??


A HUGE HUGE thank you to Emily for sending these (and many others that will be shown later) for me for my Valentine's gift.  You are such a sweetheart and I am so thankful to have met you!! *squishes*

Hope you all have a fantastic day!

Much Love,
Crystal

  3. Gorgeous swatches. <3 Lotus is totally on my Zoya wishlist, and those Girly Bits are tempted too. I haven't bought any GB since I got a few bottles with iffy formulas about a year ago, but seeing her recent stuff makes me think I need to give her another try.

  6. Wow, I love those purple nail polish with glitter both the shinny and the matte polish. They are very nice and I really like its shade. I already checked out on your friend’s blog. She has beautiful choices on her nail polish. By the way, was it her dog she posted? I also have a Yorkshire terrier dog. They are just adorable. Please tell Em that her yorkie is so cute. Thanks for posting this. -www.crystalhobbies.com
