Girly Bits Swatches (Heirloom, Erin Go Bragh-less and Stormy Skies

Hello everyone!
Today I'm going to show you three polishes from Girly Bits that were sent to me for review.

Heirloom, this is from the Season Of Sparkle Collection, a clear base with light pink and silver glitter inspired by the vintage shades of a Victorian era Holiday.
This is one coat of Heirloom over OPI I Think Pink. 


Erin Go Bragh-less is a jelly green base packed with green and gold glitter in different shapes and sizes. 
 "It is perfectly fine at two coats on it's own, and it's so deep and just swims with glowy glitter. The application is perfect, with no dabbing required, and the glitter picks up on the brush very well. This one is full of leprechaun magic." I have to agree with Pam's description, this is a wonderful shade. I applied one coat over China Glaze Electric Pineapple 

Stormy Skies is from the Sea's The Day Collection, a medium grayish blue with a hint of  micro glitter. This applies smoothly and full opacity was obtained with two coats.

Cheeky XL-A/ Barry M Cobalt Blue and Raspberry

"All Girly Bits Nail Lacquers are hand poured, using the highest quality ingredients including B3Free lacquer base, mica, pigments and glitters. They come in a standard full size 15ml bottle and contains two stainless steel beads to help keep your product mixed. Cruelty free and NEVER tested on animals"
I really love the quality on these polishes, they applied very well, the glitter doesn't need placement or dabbing. 
Girly Bits are available to purchase here, GB is also on Facebook and Twitter.
Thank you very much for reading!

O'hara is a vibrant crelly (creme/jelly) red  with scattered holographic shimmer. This applies nicely and the formula was great. I needed two thin coats to obtain full opacity.

OPI - Oz The Great and Powerful Collection, Stwaches and Review

Hello everyone!
Today I have for you the Oz collection that was sent to me from the company for review.


This is the Soft Shades collection for 2013, in this collection we will find three jelly, three glitters and one liquid sand shade.

Glints Of Glinda and When Monkeys Fly!

Glints Of Glinda is a sheer nude jelly. The formula on this was excellent, it applied flawlessly and I used three thin coats.
When Monkeys Fly! is a clear base with gold, silver and holographic glitter. I applied one coat over GoG


Don't Burst My Bubble and Which Is Witch?

Don't Burst My Bubble is a sheer pale pink, this is another great formula and I needed three thin coats to reach opacity.
Which Is Witch? Is a clear base with small hex and bar silver holographic glitter.  This one coat over DBMB.


I Theodora You and Lights Of Emerald City 

I Theodora You is my favorite of the three jelly, this is a sheer baby pink. This applied smoothly and three thin coats were enough to obtain opacity.

Lights Of Emerald City is a clear base with square white and iridescent glitter. The formula on this one was a little bit on the thick side and some placement of the white glitter was needed. This is one coat over ITY. 


What  Wizardry Is This?
This is a brownish gold shade with a olive undertone. It has the liquid sand textured finish. This is two coats with no top coat.

Overall I like this collection, the formula on the jellys shades is amazing. The glitters are also great. When Monkeys Fly! is not my kind of glitter but is wearable.

Thank you very much for reading!
