Brand Challenge: Girly Bits Cosmetics Mystery & OOAKs


Girly Bits Mystery swatch

Hello readers,
The last few months have been so busy that I haven't had much of a chance to shop shades from my collection. However, I renewed my challenge to myself in July and dug into my pile of untried Girly Bits. Specifically, I aimed for polishes I received as part of Mystery Packs or Mystery One Of A Kind (OOAK) listings. These are often small batches for which there's no recipe, custom overpours, testers and concept bottles. Overall these are all perfectly good polishes that just aren't going to make it into a full collection or regular release. I can't resist a mystery and have bought several of these over the years.
