Review: Girly Bits Hippity Hop

I just haven't been having the best run of luck with my colour combinations lately.  First this, then this, it's all just been a little less than awesome.  This is especially annoying when both polishes are awesome on their own and then they just don't go.  Let's take a look at a classic example - Revlon Chilli and Girly Bits Hippity Hop.

First up, Revlon Chilli is the most fabulously squishy bright orange coral.  It's one of those great jellies that doesn't leave a VNL (visible nail line) but still looks glossy and awesome.  I used three coats to be safe and was happy with the result.  If I were a normal person, I'd just stop there.  It was bold on it's own and at this point, just a plain nail colour is quite the envelope pusher for me.  No, instead I added a coat of Pam's Girly Bits Hippity Hop, a gorgeous purple-based rainbow glitter, shot through with a blue iridescent shimmer.  There was something about the combination with the jelly, the glitter colours, the lot that just didn't sit.  The glitter is beautiful though, with good application, I just have to find something to put it over.  If there's something you'd like to see it with, let me know in the comments.  







The Verdict:  One day I'll learn to test out colour combos before getting all the way done.  Sigh.

The Polishes:
  • Revlon Chili, drug stores.
  • Pam's Girly Bits Hippity Hop, $10, Girly Bits Store

  1. I don't think it's that bad! I kind of like the contrast between the different polishes. I might layer it over something like Zoya Dove to get a more subtle look :)

  2. It would look good over black (of course), but for something more exciting you could try to match the teal, or purple?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!  

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
