Good morning from Hawaii! I'm on vacation for Spring Break, woop woop! But Hawaii in April is a bit of a hit or miss with the weather, it's windy and cloudy and rained on our first day. But oh well, we are still in paradise and I'm enjoying it and relaxing the days away. The only thing that throws me off is the time difference - 6 hours difference between Hawaii and the East Coast! So my timing to share anything nail or beauty related is a bit wonky. But I think I got it for this post! Today I have the Girly Bits April Colour of the Month Duo for ya AND it's the last day to purchase the duo at the discounted rate of $29.50 CAD for the duo. After the 10th the prices will be $15 CAD for the creme and $16.50 CAD for the flakie polish. Great names cane out of the Girly Bits Fan group again, we have My Peony Has A First Name and Bouquet Corral. They will be available until 5/1/18. Alrighty, less talky, more looky!
First let me show you the inspiration board for April's shades...it's beautiful! So floral and Springy and elegant. Kind of like a garden party wedding!
This is My Peony Has A First Name. It's a lovely mid-toned orchid creme. It can pull more pink or purple depending on lighting and skin tone. I found the formula to be uber creamy and opaque, so fabulous! Applied like buttah! I only needed 2 coats for full coverage and it was glossy on it's own so no topcoat needed.
Bouquet Corral is my favorite of the two, surprise surprise! It's a white crelly with rose gold shimmer, scattered holo sparkles and ultra chrome flakes in pink, gold and purple. Ooooh weeee this is a beauty and so perfect for the Spring season. The white base gives it a clean, fresh feel and all the glitzy bits really amp up the glamour feel. Formula and application were both wonderful, 3 thin coats for full coverage. I finished with topcoat.
I used them both for a mani and think it was looks pretty fun! I started with a base of My Peony Has A First Name and added a thick stripe of Bouquet Corral to each nail. I skipped the thin liner brush and just used the brush included in the polish so it appears that Peony is the accent on the sides of Corral! Pretty cool, right? A layer of topcoat and I was good to go.
