Good morning folks! Today I'm excited to share my Girly Bits Season of Sparkle swatches with you. Made up of nine polishes, this collection is well balanced between glitter toppers, jellies, shimmers and more. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to start lookin' at some pictures!
Eggnogoholic is sure to be a favorite for many of you -- I know it is for me! A soft white base with delicate gold glitters, this jelly beauty reached the opacity seen below in three coats. It had a lovely formula and I enjoyed the way it looked with my skintone.
Eight Crazy Nights is a glitter topper made up of blues, silvers, diamonds and holographic pieces in a clear base. I couldn't help myself and layered this one over Illamasqua Cameo. I can't even begin to describe to you guys how much I loved these two polishes together. If you look carefully, you can see one of the blue diamonds on my middle finger near the word "NAILS" in my watermark.
Fathomless. Hnnnnggggg. Look how pretty this is. I needed four coats for opacity here, but the layers weren't thick and the translucency of the base really allows the gold and green sparks to shine. I had no troubles with the formula. Don't you just want to go live inside this polish forever?
Heirloom is a clear based glitter topper "with all the vintage shades of a Victorian era Holiday." I love that description from Girly Bits. It does have a rather antiqued look to it, and I chose to layer it over OPI Berlin There Done That to try to complement that aesthetic. This is 1.5 coats.
Hot Toddy is a warm and shimmery red jelly. Sure to warm you from the inside out. :) The shimmer in this is beautiful. I believe I used three coats for the swatch below.
Long Winter's Nap is a cool grey base with blue, grey, and periwinkle glitters. I've shown three coats of it alone here. I am always drawn to greys, and this one is no exception. Long Winter's Nap feels so inherently "wintry" to me, I want to wrap up in a blanket when I look at it!
Ornamental My Dear Watson is a multicolor glitter topper made up of fuchsias, golds, and blues. I seriously enjoy the name of this polish so much. Shown here over American Apparel Dynasty, Ornamental appears to have a bit of reflective curling in areas but does lay flat on the nail.
Visions of Sugarplums is a showstopper! It starts with a warm purple jelly base and then adds loads of glitters. Most notable are the iridescent glitters that make this polish so eye catching. I've applied three coats below.
♪You're a Mean One...♪ is an adorable take on the red and green glitter topper. It's packed with micro green glitter, chunkier red and green pieces, black hearts (to represent the Grinch's black heart!) and black bars. I've had the Grinch song stuck in my head pretty much constantly since I swatched this one.
I'm dying to know -- which ones are you loving?
The Girly Bits shop is open until 8pm EST tonight, but after that Pam will be closing for the holidays. Don't fret, though! Girly Bits polishes are still available through the stockists at Llarowe, Harlow & Co., Overall Beauty, and Mei Mei's Signatures.
