Swatch and Review – Girly Bits Chrysalis – The Polish Pickup (September 2017)

PRESS SAMPLE

Hello friends! Today I am sharing Chrysalis – the Girly Bits Cosmetics contribution to this month’s The Polish Pickup. The Polish Pickup is a monthly themed box where a group of indie polish makers get together and create their own polish based on a theme for that particular month. You can then pick and choose which polish(es) you want to pre-order (no need to buy the whole box). The Polish Pickup Shop goes live the first Friday of each month at 11 AM EST and closes the following Monday at midnight EST.

September’s theme is Fall Foliage and Chrysalis is a stunning and unique addition!

Pam from Girly Bits was inspired by the beautiful chrysalis of the monarch butterfly.

Pam explains that she lives in the migratory path for the monarch butterfly. In the Fall, they gather by the thousands in the southern shores of Kingsville and Pelee Island. She often finds their beautiful chrysalises suspended from milkweed, or branches and outdoor furniture:

Now onto swatches. The official description of Chrysalis is:

A complex polish with a very unique multi dimensional, but surprisingly smooth finish. It contains an array of green, lime, gold and holographic particles, multichrome flakes in blue, purple, green, and gold, iridescent colour shifting flakes, and a sprinkling of sparkly holo flakes. It offers an easy application, with excellent coverage.

My swatches are all two coats plus Girly Bits What a Rush Quick Dry Top Coat.

I think Pam was spot on with this interpretation. And being a massive Fall fan, I am really enjoying the unique inspiration behind this polish! It’s Fall but not the traditional leaves and pumpkins. The polish was easy to work with and smoothed right out with top coat!

Remember you have until the first Monday at midnight EST (that’s tomorrow!) to purchase Chrysalis:
