Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas; 2016 Collection

Good morning beauties.  It's my second day at home with the kids all off to school and things are a bit easier.  It's a full day so I have an extra hour to take care of things, I've already gotten most of the house cleaned up, I'm going to get my daughter's birthday party planned and I'm gong to enjoy the peace before the storm hits.  I'll be in taxi mom hell trying to get 3 kids to 3 separate fields for practice during the same 2 hour block this evening.  So while I figure out a way to clone myself I decided to jump online and share a post with you.  Sorry that this one is long overdue, I've had pictures ready, just haven't had time to write it up.  The good news is that the 2016 What Really Happened In Vegas Collection is still available!  It will also be showcased at PolishCon, if any of you are making your way to Chicago in September!  But back to details, the WRHIV collection will be $16.50CAD each, if you purchase the entire set before 8/29 you can save $5!  Let's delve on in to the post and see what Pam has to say about the polishes and inspirations for this years collection.

Anniversary Crashers was inspired by old friends!  Am  and her hubby happened to be in Las Vegas at the same time as some friends who were celebrating their 30th anniversary.  They were fortunate to be able to spend time with them this year and 30 years ago when they got married!  As for the polish, Anniversary Crashers is a mix of yellow gold, deep blue, and holo gold microglitter with gold flakes mixed in.  I love this color so much.  It's blingy, gorgeous, unique.  Formula and application were both great.  I used 3 thin coats.  I did find it to be topcoat thirsty so I used 2 layers of topcoat.





How To Find A Naked Man (in Vegas) is a hilarious name.  Inspired by a hilarious story featuring one unlucky lady who attended Cocktails & Colors.  She went back to the hotel room to get a missing table decoration for the event, was given a key by the front desk.  Ended up in the wrong hallway, wrong room, with the wrong key.  The door was unlatched and she found a naked man inside!  OOPS!  I bet both their faces were priceless.  How To Find a  Naked Man (in Vegas) is a dusty denim blue crelly with iridescent microglitter, bronze twinkle and violet shimmer.  It's perfect for Fall!  I used 3 thin coats for perfect coverage, application was lovely.  Finished with a layer of topcoat.  





One of the bloggers attending CPNA this year had a nice time with TSA in the airport.  With nothing on her persons to set off the security alarm at the checkpoint, she set it off twice!  Just her luck, she was pulled aside to be frisked in some very personal areas.  And this is the inspiration for Personal Hotspot.  It's a bright raspberry pink base filled with a variety of fuchsia holo and metallic glitter.  This is such a gorgeous shade, fun and bright!  Formula and application were both great.  But I did find this one topcoat hungry again, I used 2 layers of topcoat but probably could have gone for a 3rd or used Gelous instead.  





I Do what I Want, I love this one because it's named after one of my best friends Michelle from Ehmkay Nails.  It's hilarious to see the name because while I wasn't there when it happened, I can totally hear her saying it.  The phrase was initially uttered by her, but Sheila from Pointless Cafe used it as her go to-phrase all weekend as a way to be rebellious, which we all know isn't her MO.   LOL, such silly women, this story makes me so glad I know them both!   I Do What I Want is a grape amethyst purple, loaded with silver microflakes, holo micro flakes and silver holo microglitter.  This one was so sparkly and distracting!  Formula and applicant were awesome.  2 coats and topcoat.  Totally smooth to the touch.  





Last but not least is Showgirl Plucker.  It's inspired by the lovely Jacinta's (Powder Perfect) 3-year old  being completely smitten with a showgirl while taking in the sights on the strip.  So smitten in fact that the 3-year old plucked a feather right off the showgirl's costume.  Jacinta was thankful that while the little's eyes were on the sparkles and feathers, he didn't notice the man wearing only a sock behind them!  Showgirl Plucker is a mid tone teal/turquoise base with holographic micro flakes and a sprinkling of purple and blue microglitter.  This is one of my favorites in the collection.  I love the contrasting microglitters in the base!  Fabulous formula and application.  Smooth and easy to put on.  2 layers and topcoat.
