Good morning! I told you I'd be back in the morning with more ellagee goodness!! And here I am! This post brings you the brand new, Lady Gaga inspired, Born To Be Brave Collection. Ok I'm a weird one when it comes to Lady Gaga. I loved her, then loathed her, now love her again. I'm absolutely on board with her current glamorous style. She's classy and gorgeous, lets face it, she's a total fashion icon. And hello her voice is amazing! Laura really did a great job capturing all her "faces" with this collection! If you're a fan of Gaga or just of nail polish you're gonna love this! Born To Be Brave will be available tomorrow 3/16 at 6pm CST. You can pick up the full 7 piece collection at a discounted price of $74 (a 10% discount for 4 days only). Born To Be Brave will also be available on the Girly Bits website. Ready to delve in? Let's go!
Here are some of the inspiration photos for the Born To Be Brave Collection. See if you can match them up to the polishes!
She sure knows how to go dramatic, doesn't she? Wish I could pull off some of those style! Let's start with Mother Monster. This is a white polish with pink and blue shimmer. Such a gorgeous polish with an ethereal feel. Formula was a little tricky. I used 4 coats and still had some uneven spots. But it didn't take away the oooh factor for me, I still think it's a gorgeous polish. I finished with topcoat.
Million Reasons, great song and polish! This is a aqua-blue holo with holo glitters and a touch of fuchsia shift. Loving this color! The slight shift showing up from the lovely shimmer is stunning! Formula and application were both perfect. 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.
Here's another great blue shade. This is I Am My Hair. The name of this one makes me laugh. It's probably a song. Like I said I wasn't a fan of hers for a while because I thought she went too far out there for me so I have no idea what she was doing during that period. But I do know I'm digging this soft aqua holo with silver flakies. Formula and application were both great. I used 2 coats and topcoat.
Ooooh The Countess slays! This is a gorgeous hot pink leaning magenta with a helping of holo flakes. Girl, you want this in your arsenal...especially for the upcoming hot months! It's going to look awesome out in the bright sunshine! Actually my notes explicitly say "I L<3VE this color!". Formula and application were fabulous. 2 coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish.
Velvet Ropes and Guitars is definitely the sexiest polish in the bunch. It's a rd jelly with sparkly red glitters and flakes. Super gorgeous. Super 'notice me'. Fantastic formula and application. 3 coats for full coverage. Topcoat to keep it glossy.
Beautiful Dirty Rich is another sexy one! It's a black base full copper shimmer and gold flakes. Definitely luxurious and expensive looking. Aside from that I find the polish interesting and unique. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage and topcoat to finish it up.
Last but not least is Monster Ball. This is a super fun glitter bomb, full of circle glitters, bars, mini stars, squares and micro glitters. I see a mix of soft purple, gold, magenta, holo. I wear so many shimmers and chameleons these days that it's fun to play with glittery goodness. I have 2 layers of Monster Ball over a soft lilac purple creme. I finished with topcoat to keep the glitters smooth.
