Girly Bits Fireweed and Flora and Fauna Glitter Globe Pen Review

Provided for review

Girly Bits is setting a dangerous precedent. For the January Polish Pickup and once again for February's, Pam has created a glitter globe pen to match with the nail polish she's created. I'm going to start expecting to own a pen to match every nail polish I own. Who doesn't want their nails to match their glittery pen? I've always been obsessed with pens (super weird - don't judge me) and, obviously, nail polish so this is very much up my alley. I'm not at all complaining. The pen has a perfect weight and the glitter in the top part is a custom mix Pam created just for Polish Pickup. Keep reading to learn more about how to get the pen in your hands and polish on your nails.

Girly Bits Fireweed is 5 Free, Cruelty Free, Vegan, Fair. 

Girly Bits Fireweed ($13 USD | 15 mL | no cap) is a beautiful pastel fuchsia shade that straddles pink and purple. It features a mesmerizing shift that travels from aqua to fuchsia and is laced with aqua-blue-green-pink iridescent flakes and holo micro flakes. I took inspiration from the magic and wonder of Banff National Park, Canada. It's filled with beautiful lakes of aqua and turquoise, majestic mountains, and acres upon acres of wildflowers and wildlife. I was inspired specifically by this image of fireweed by Lake Louise, which is where one of my daughters currently lives and works as a concierge. Fireweed is often the first plant life to grow after the devastation of wildfires and it has been used for years by First Nations people to treat burns and other skin conditions because of its anti-inflammatory properties.

Girly Bits Glitter pen review by Streets Ahead Style'

Girly Bits Fireweed Glitter Globe Pen ($7.50 USD | 100 cap) is a glitter globe pen that pairs perfectly with Fireweed. It features a rainbow/multi-chrome barrel, silver hardware, and contains a custom mix of aquatic iridescent glitter in pink, aqua and purple that float in the clear top half of the barrel. It is nicely weighted in your hand, and has smooth flowing black ink. The ink cartridge is replaceable making this pen more eco-friendly than most disposable pens. This pen writes beautifully and smoothly. I get mesmerized by the glitters and it makes me happy when I'm writing. It's my kind of glitter mix and it pairs perfectly with the Fireweed nail polish. Grab them both ;)
