Girly Bits August 2017 CoTM Depêche à la Mode and Let Me Azure You

Friday, August 4, 2017

I have a super fun treat for your eyes today... it's the August 2017 Colors of the Month from Girly Bits Cosmetics! Yet again, Pam has knocked it out of the park with these gorgeous nail polishes for the month of August. There's something for everyone here so step right up and take a look at this month's offerings.

First up is the absolutely stunning Girly Bits Depêche à la Mode which is described as a warm pale peachy base with gold shimmer, grey flecks, copper/red flecks, and a sprinkling of gold holo micro-glitter. I am wearing three thin coats plus top coat. Oh boy, did this ever apply smoothy and easily. I think I could have gotten away with two coats but I wanted that extra coverage for my photos. The formula is super fluid and easy to work with.

Secondly, we have Girly Bits Let Me Azure You which is described as a mid-toned blue holo with a lovely blue shimmer and a slight blue to purple-ish flash. Pam says that it's kind of hard to describe and looks different in various lighting and I would describe. It definitely looks darker and more purple in some lighting and lighter and more of a sky blue in others. I am wearing two super easy, fluid coats and no top coat in these photos. It dried very shiny and smooth but, of course, I would recommend QDTC if you're planning to wear it out and about. But, these pictures really show how shiny it is on its own!

Okay, so I am definitely partial to Girly Bits Depêche à la Mode because of the shimmer. Oh my goodness, that shimmer is just adorable. I was worried that this peach wouldn't work well with my skin tone but I was totally wrong: Depêche à la Mode is very flattering on my pale-but-slightly-tanned hands. And, on top of the shimmer there's a smattering of gold holo microglitter which stole my heart. I was able to capture it even so slightly below. When the light catches the shimmer and microglitter, I hear angels singing.

Now, it's time for me to gush about Let Me Azure you. This is such a gorgeous blue which I was also afraid about not loving but I was wrong, once again. It's such a lovely mid-toned shade of blue with a beautiful linear holo arc and blue to purple flash. It's delicate and perfect for Summer. It looks a lot like a clear August sky.

The  grey flecks, copper/red flecks are quite prominent in Depêche à la Mode when looking at it up close (like below) but from a distance, the polish is very neutral and delicate. Very work appropriate and very sweet.

The shimmer in Let Me Azure You also really pops when looking at it up close and personal. It's a lot more subtle because of the linear holo and flash but it's definitely there and it's definitely pretty.

I wanted to share the bottle shot of Depêche à la Mode and Let Me Azure You because it really shows all the best features on the polishes, shimmer, flash, flakes, you name it! As for ordering these beauties, if you order them both from the Girly Bits website before 11:59pm on August 10, 2017 you will get them at a discounted price of $31 CAD (which is $1 off each bottle). After that date, each polish will be available for $16.50 CAD (Let Me Azure You and Depêche à la Mode). They are both available until August 31, 2017 at 11:59pm on the Girly Bits website.

I was having way too much fun photographing Depêche à la Mode so I have included some bonus shots which really show off the shimmer and sparkle.

And then another photo with a peach because they're in season and it's officially the best time of the year. Yay for peaches!
