Good morning beauties! If you follow the indie nail polish world you've probably heard that there is a bit of an issue with mail fro Canada at the moment. I don't know the logistics, but I do know there is a potential lock out looming (7/2) which means no packages will get mailed once that happens. Let's all hope an agreement is reached soon so we can all get our pretties from the lovely brands that reside in Canada! One such brand is Girly Bits! Pam has a new collection ready to go once this is all sorted out and I think you're going to LOVE it! I sure did. It's called A Little Madness and it's inspired by the Alice Through The Looking Glass. Each polish in this 6-piece collection was created with a specific character in mind and Pam nailed all of them! You can get this collection from Harlow & Co NOW or you can wait until the Girly Bits shop opens back up. Harlow & Co has the entire collection on sale for $96.50 CAD or individually for $16.50 CAD - she'll stop taking orders at noon EST! So let's jump in and see these lovely polishes so you can order them!
Up first I have White Rabbit, inspired of course by the White Rabbit. This is a winter white crelly filled with silver flakes and iridescent, soft gold micro glitter. It's a gorgeous shade that sparkles like crazy. I used 3 thin coats to build White Rabbit up, you can slightly see my nail line still but it's not overly obvious. Formula and application were both great. I used 3 thin coats and finished with topcoat.

Believe the Impossible is a light lavender, intense linear holo with gold shimmer. Another shade that's easy to love. Plus HOLO! You know I love anything holo. Believe the Impossible is inspired by The White Queen. Isn't she beautiful? Formula and application were both great. I used 3 thin coats and no topcoat.

A Little Madness is my favorite of the bunch for many reasons. Peachy-orangey-coraly, pink shimmer, holo, Johnny Depp, the Mad Hatter. Yeah, that about sums it up. So clearly A Little Madness is inspired by the Mad Hatter, one of the wildest characters ever invented (IMO). This is a summery orange/coral low density holo with red flash and violet shimmer (which combined read pink to me). Yes buddy, sign me up for all of that! Formula and application were both awesome. I used 3 thin coats and no topcoat.

Go Ask Alice is a mid-tone, aqua blue crelly. It's a lovely full coverage shade of blue that not only is reminiscent of the inspiration picture of Alice, but also of her iconic blue apron dress. Formula and application were smooth and creamy. I reached full coverage in 3 thin coats. No topcoat used.

No Alice collection would be complete without a nod to the Queen of Hearts. She's one of my favorite villains because she's so crazy and hot tempered (maybe she reminds me of well, me!). This is Heads Will Roll, a garnet red jelly filled with golden/green glass flecks. This was definitely another one of my favorites in the collection. Formula and application were great. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage and topcoat.

And last but not least is Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar. I know this is going to be the belle of the ball, how could it not be? It's absolutely breathtaking! It's a multi chrome that shifts from purple to blue to teal with a touch of gold holo micro glitter. Yup, gorgeous. Yup, another favorite. I've been really into multi chromes lately and I enjoyed the touch of holo in this one. I used 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat. The formula was creamy and opaque, application was a breeze.
