Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish Frankly, My Dear

I have a backlog of polishes I received through the Polish Pickup to share with you all. Is anyone else in the same boat? Are you a Polish Pickup fan? I love the Polish Pickup because it introduces me to new brands like Poetry Cowgirl! This gorgeous polish I'm sharing today was part of the August Polish Pickup and the theme was Old Hollywood. How glam!


Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish Frankly, My Dear can be described as a black jelly packed with red/orange/gold UCC flakies, iridescent chameleon glitters, silver holo micro glitters, and a red flash. It is inspired by the film Gone With the Wind and it beautifully captures a smoldering flame with the flakies and black jelly base. 


I am wearing three thin coats plus top coat. I really liked how this applied because it was easy in spite of all the flakies and glitters. It dries relatively smoothly but top coat is a must to bring out the shine though I imagine a matte top coat would look awesome too. This is very vampy and sexy and perfect for Fall. This polish wore really well for the few days I had it on. I also didn't get tired or bored with it which is a good sign for me. I will absolutely wear this again and I know my mom was itching to wear it too :)

Girly Bits Wait For It Polish Pickup Nail Polish

Products sent for review by Girly Bits

Who's ready for a preview of one of the Polish Pickup polishes for November's theme of Fandoms? Do we have any How I Met Your Mother fans in the room? If so, this one's for you! I used to watch HIMYM (I think seasons 1 through 3) but I have commitment issues and it was going on for too long so I stopped watching. This is the story of my television watching life. Also, if you love blue then you are going to LOVE this nail polish.

 The theme for the November Polish Pickup is Fandoms and Pam created a polish inspired by How I Met Your Mother which, according to Pam, is one of the funniest shows she has ever watched. Below is the inspiration picture with some of the classic HIMYM running jokes.

Girly Bits Wait For It is desrcibed as having a vibrant blue base, that shifts through violet, and magenta, to teal, and green at the edges. It is filled with holo flakes, and sparks of blue and green holographic microglitter. It will be available only through the Polish Pickup for $13 USD. This nail polish is 5 free, cruelty free, and vegan.

I am wearing two coats plus top coat. This applies like butter and the finish is incredibly smooth. This polish is so intensely blue and so incredibly bright. I didn't do justice in capturing all the complex shifts in this polish but they're there. Magic will happen on your nails.  The photos above and below show some of the shift and the final bottle shot shows it too. I love the holo flakes because they catch the light and really sparkle. This is also my favorite shade of blue - very bright and bold. I think it really fits with the HIMYM feel. Removal was easy as the flakes are very small as is the microglitter.

Girly Bits October 2017 CoTM Duo Slay, Ghoul, Slay and No Pumpkin Way Nail Polish

Provided for review

Who's ready for some Halloween-inspired nail polish? I AM SO READY! I am a Halloween freak and having nail polish to match the occasion is an absolute necessity. Last October, I forgot to order the CoTM polishes and only recently found them after months of ISOs and begging... so, my wise words to you are these: do not forget to order these two gorgeous Colours of the Month from Girly Bits! You will regret it. Learn from my mistake and never skip the CoTM! Hold onto your witch hats... these beauties will rock your world. Also, both of these polishes are 5-Free, cruelty free and vegan.

Girly Bits October 2017 CoTM Duo Colours of the Month

The October Colour of the Month will be available for purchase from October 13th at 12noon EDT until November 30th at 11:59pm EDT. They will be $16.50 CAD each. Early Bird Special: Pick up the duo from the Duo Early Bird Promo listing at a discounted price of $1.00 off each bottle from the 13th to the 22nd of October. After that, they will continue to be available for purchase individually at full price only. 

Girly Bits No Pumpkin Way

Girly Bits No Pumpkin Way is a fiery burnt orange with a violet shimmer and brilliant gold holo microglitter. So, this is quintessentially Halloween orange in a nail polish. Like, actually the perfect Halloween orange that glows from within. The violet shimmer is very visible and I caught just a peek of it in the below picture. I am wearing two super easy coats plus top coat. This dries with the teeeniest bit of texture from the microglitter but it smooths easily with top coat and removal is pretty easy but just a tiny bit of scrubbing is required. I am loving orange more and more lately and not just for Halloween. This is classic and elegant as the orange is really deep. Seriously love No Pumpkin Way.

Are you ready for the second half of the Girly Bits October CoTM?... 

Girly Bits Slay, Ghoul, Slay

 Girly Bits Slay, Ghoul, Slay is a dusty lavender holo with orange sparks and a sprinkling of bronze-copper metallic flakes. It leans a bit purple/grey for me (at least the base does). So, this is INCREDIBLY dreamy. I am wearing 2 coats plus top coat. It built up really well and the formula is typical awesome Girly Bits formula. I used top coat but it's a very smooth finish. Easy removal, too! I absolutely LOVE this polish and the combination of bronze-copper flakies in this base is just amazing. It leans mostly lavender on me but looks a touch more grey in some other lighting. It has some shimmer methinks too.
