Girly Bits: As You Wish

Girly Bits is participating in the Polish Pick Up (PPU) for March, which goes live March 2-5 at www.polishpickup.com
PPU is a website that lists and sells exclusive polishes each month. It is set up as a pre-order with a short ordering window. To learn more about PPU check out their facebook group.

Pam chose one of the most well read books in her home as inspiration - The Princess Bride.
The polish is named after the phrase Westley says often to Buttercup.

As You Wish
a blackened teal base, with copper to gold multi-chrome shine, prismatic holo flakes, deep copper metallic flakes, and multichrome flakes that shift through green and pink, to copper and gold. After application to the nail, the base shade reads brown in most lighting except when shifting to green.
I wore two coats with topcoat. Formula was good. I rarely let polish dry completely before topcoating so I can't speak to finish or texture, but after topcoat it was certainly smooth and glossy.

Leesha's Lacquer: Grey, Greyer, Greyest

Leesha's Lacquer is participating in the Polish Pick Up (PPU) for March, which goes live March 2-5 at www.polishpickup.com
PPU is a website that lists and sells exclusive polishes each month. It is set up as a pre-order with a short ordering window. To learn more about PPU check out their facebook group.

Grey, Greyer, Greyest
March's PPU theme is books and Leesha's polish was inspired by the book, "50 Shades of Grey"
Grey crelly base packed with all of the colors of the rainbow by way of holo and rainbow flakies.

I wore two smooth coats with topcoat. The formula was fluid and easy to apply, finish is shiny and smooth and removal was easy peasy.

Such a great shade of grey - not too dark, not too light. Perfect for nail art too!

The formulas of each were fantastic and easy to apply. See photos for number of coats, all were topped with KBShimmer topcoat.

I also did a gradient with the two greens and stamped over it. I quite like how it turned out!

KBShimmer: If You Want My Bodice

KBShimmer offers a new shade, If You Want My Bodice, For The March Polish Pick Up! It will be available 03/02/2018 – 03/05/2018 at https://www.polishpickup.com

Christy describes her inspiration:
Some women have a dirty little secret; every night they escape to a world where a handsome rogue lusts after their busty figure, and not even a laced up bodice would be still the passion that burned between them. At the end of the day, when that beloved book with racy cover gets placed in the nightstand, the pages worn and dog eared, those women thank Harlequin and Silhouette for the tales of intrigue, romance, and of course lust.


Based on the cover of a “bodice ripper” romance, KBShimmer’s If You Want My Bodice is full of lusty goodness. This shifty polish starts with a blend of multichrome pigments that in indirect light, help this polish travel from a cool minty teal to a deep lavender. Flecks of unicorn flakes shift in a rainbow of colors that dance among the colorful base. In brighter light, micro holo flakes sparkle, while deeper hues of magenta and blue come out to play. This 5-free polish is shown in two coats with KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat.

And all the rest are under odd lighting to show the shift. I saw orange/rust which isn't mentioned in the description!

The formula was nearly opaque in one coat, ya'll. And formula? fan-freaking-tastic! as we have all come to expect from KBshimmer. You won't want to miss this shifty gal!

I wore two coats with topcoat for each of these polishes and I quite like how they look, even if some show vnl. The formula was great for each, however; they do have the plastic-y odor that a lot of people are noticing. It doesn't bother me, but I wanted to mention it just in case it was of concern.

See you at launch! https://everafterpolish.com
