Girly Bits Cosmetics Festival Of Lights Swatches & Review

Polish Pickup swatch

Hello readers,
Today I have Girly Bits Cosmetics' contribution to Polish Pickup's December release to share with you. This month's collection was inspired by holidays around the world and Girly Bits chose the Hindu festival of Diwali. Part of the celebration involves lighting candles and lights in homes, outdoors, around temples and other buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed. All those little lights coming together inspired this shimmery sparkly polish.

Festival Of Lights features a clear base filled with golden metallic microflakes, gold shimmer, fine holo shimmer, and a rainbow of iridescent and metallic colour shifting flakes. The formula was very easy to work with, though a bit sheer; I'll get back to that point in a minute. It took me three coats for 95% coverage. My nail tips still show through a little bit, but when the shimmer catches the light and takes over it's not noticeable. This dries quite smoothly but I still added top coat out of habit. Photos show three coats of Festival Of Lights with one coat of Girly Bits Cosmetics What A Rush top coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Back to the slightly sheer formula. After sending out this prototype for swatching, Pam of Girly Bits decided to add a bit more gold shimmer to make the formula more pigmented. The polish you buy will look exactly the same, just with no nail lines peeking through. Festival Of Lights, along with the rest of the other holiday inspired polishes, will be available for pre-order on the Polish Pickup website for four days beginning December 1st, 2017 at 11AM EST.
