Girly Bits Lost in the PATH

Nothing To Disclose

Happy Wednesday! I'm getting ready for my upcoming trip to PolishCon and realized I haven't really shown off my goodies from Indie Expo Canada that I went to this past summer! The event, held by Girly Bits Cosmetics, had some of the best brands from Canada and the US in attendance, and I was so happy with the turnout.

One of the polishes that I just had to pick up was Girly Bits Lost in the PATH. This is a deep blurple (purple/blue) with gold shimmer and silver holo flakes. There's also some red magic happening up there that just adds to the dimension of this polish.

I used a base coast of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow top coat. This polish applied beautifully and just barely needed 2 coats. I'm so in love with it.

LOOK AT THIS. I'm so happy with it and may have to keep this on a few days. I really want to do a marble manicure soon that I saw on The Nailasaurus for PolishCon but we know how my nail art turns out...

As of press time, you can still purchase this limited edition polish on the Girly Bits website. I highly recommend it.

Sun Polish 7

Press Sample

This year at Cosmoprof North America, there were plenty of new brands, and one that was walking the floor was Sun Polish - a premium line out of Southern California. Unfortunately, they left the show the day before I got there but they were kind enough to send me two polishes to try. Today I have 7, a light green leaning mint creme.

Sun Polish is 4-free and cruelty free, with 10% of their profits going to organization that empower women in Los Angeles. The brush is nice and wide.

For this manicure, I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 coats of polish and finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top. This polish was a little streaky and needed all three coats to even out but covered my ridges without any issue.



This color POPS. I seriously would love this as a pedicure but on my nails I feel like it's almost too much for me. It would be a great base for stamping though. The green is leaning mint but has lots of white in it to really pop. I really would love this on nubbins.

Sun Polish may be purchased on their website for $12 a bottle. Join the conversation on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

Dermelect Kiss 'ME'

Press Sample

Happy Monday! My #MakeupMonday is taking a break right now because honestly, I have so much polish here that I have lots to share. On top of all the indies I have floating around, I also have some great fall collections and today is Deremelect Kiss 'ME' from the Completely Classic collection.

Dermelect is a 5 free, peptide-infused polish which has a large cult following in the mainstream world. I once met with one of their brand ambassadors who was probably more passionate that I've ever seen an ambassador be - and with good reason. Deremelect has worked hard to have polish that looks good and isn't full of chemicals.

For this polish, I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow top coat. The first coat went on a little streaky because it has such a rich dark base but the second coat evened everything out and showed the glowy nature of the crimson. The polish is considered a "velvet crimson" but didn't dry matte like I expected it to.


Check this out. I love how it just glows. I'm about to have another manicure in preparation for PolishCon this weekend, but I'm very happy with how my nails are finally growing out. As you know, it's been almost a year since my disastrous acrylic nails and I'm very happy with all the progress.

Deremelect may be purchased for $14 a bottle.

Glisten & Glow Rock n' Roll & Route 66

Press Sample

Today from the 1950s Collection by Glisten & Glow, I have Rock n Roll & Route 66 which is a great robin egg blue with teeny green shimmer. This polish also is great for water marbling and stamping and self levels on the second coat. If you watched my Nail It Instagram Live "Indie Spotlight", you saw that my first coat had a bit of pulling and I think it's from the shimmer in my first coat but it was perfect in two.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow top coat. I actually was really excited about this polish and really want to have it for an upcoming pedicure.



Ugh I love this so much. The green shimmer is more hidden on the nail but it gives this polish depth and I love it for that. I really want to stamp over it with white polish so look for that soon especialyl now that I have the hang of stamping.

Cirque Cerrillos

Nothing To Disclose

After my first Indie Spotlight, Emily suggested that I swatch a Cirque Colors and while I haven't bought from them in awhile, I decided to "shop my stash" as the cool kids say. I only own 3 Cirque polishes right now, all older but I was interested in seeing how well these polishes hold up over time. Today I have Cerrillos from the 2014 Heritage collection. Cerrillos is located in New Mexico accessible from State Highway 14, commonly called Turquoise Trail so this polish is well named.

I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish, and finished with Glisten & Glow top coat. The first coat was nicely opaque but I decided to go with two thin coats for consistency and well, habit. It's good to note that this polish dried matte but since I always use top coat, it shined itself right up.

So this is what I'm calling a scattered holographic - that is, the holographic looks like tons of little rainbows all scattered around. Cirque labels this more ofa  green but I felt like it was more blue on my nails. Either way, I was super impressed with how well it's held up the past 3 years.
