The Girly Bits CoTM Finale (For Now): The Final Shift and Aww Flake, It's Over?

Provided for review

I am sharing the December 2019 Girly Bits CoTM duo with a tear in my eye. These two polishes will be the last ever CoTM polishes in the series which began in June 2016. At least for now.

The CoTM Series began in June of 2016, and in Pam's words: "it has been SO much fun!! It has challenged my creativity, and it has created an awesome interaction with all of you as we reveal and name them each month. I am sad to see it end, but I have plans for other small batch releases so don't you worry." Girly Bits is doing some restructuring over the next few months (both in their business model and physical setup) so it will be the last CoTM for the foreseeable future. Let's not cry... let's look at the swatches!

Paint It Pretty Polish Repel Negativity December 2019 Pretty Polish of the Month Review

Provided for review

Well, it's December and I can't quite believe it. For December, Sherri of Paint It Pretty Polish is continuing her birthstone theme with a zircon-inspired polish named Repel Negativity. December can be a hard month for lots of people so I think the sentiment behind this polish is particularly apt. According to, "zircon is a grounding stone, used to balance the wearers dreams with reality. In addition, zircon is said to ward off negative energy and invite happiness into the wearer's life." Hopefully wearing this polish will have the same effect.

My Indie Polish Snow Shards and Gone Before You Know Winter is Coming PPU

Provided for review

Do you like snow? I used to hate it and winter in general. However, I think I am starting to embrace it and recognize its beauty. Winter offers a special time for hibernation and restoration. Summer is just so stressful because I constantly feel like I'm battling the sun and trying to make the most of every second for fear of wasting one minute. That's a lot of pressure to squeeze all your living into 4 months (if we're lucky here in Ontario). Winter offers 6+ months of total chill. But we aren't here to wax poetic about seasons, this is about My Indie Polish's offering for the December Winter is Coming Polish Pickup. Two products this time around! Let's check them out.

Just in case you aren't already aware, the December Polish Pickup schedule is different than the usual. The shop will open at 11 AM EST on Monday, December 2 and close at 11:59 PM on Friday, December 6. The goal is to get packages out sooner before the Holidays.

Paint It Pretty Polish Festival of Lights December 2019 Polish Pickup

Provided for review

Winter is coming! And that's exactly the theme for the December 2019 Polish Pickup. Sherri was inspired by one of my favorite places to visit in the winter: Niagara Falls! This polish is the perfect representation of those cold months that bring so many special moments that warm you from the inside out. Look at me getting all emotional over a nail polish. Once you see the inspiration, you will know what I mean.

A special note for the December Polish Pickup schedule. It will be different (for this month only). The shop will open at 11 AM EST on Monday, December 2 and close at 11:59 PM on Friday, December 6. The goal is to get packages out sooner before the Holidays.
