Hi everyone! I’m really excited to talk about the Girly Bits contribution to the November 2017 The Polish Pickup. I found this month especially interesting because the theme for November is Fandoms! And we all have our faves. Pam of Girly Bits was inspired by her favourite sitcom ever and created a polish called Wait For It …..any guesses???  That’s right, her polish is inspired by How I Met Your Mother!

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

Thedotcouture girly bits Chrysalis the polish pickup September 2017


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!

Hi everybody!!! It’s a brand new month and you know what that means – a new Girly Bits Cosmetics Colour of the Month Duo! And it’s not just ANY month. It’s September. Fall. Autumn. Changing leaves. Back to school. Sweater weather. Pumpkins and Pumpkin Spice everything. And my Birthday. Although I’m sure the fact that Pam from Girly Bits put out the most gorgeous fall colours for this month’s duo for MY BIRTHDAY MONTH is strictly coincidental. I mean, I’m not fall-obsessed or anything right?? Let’s take a look-see at these beauties!

Lost in the PATH is loosely inspired by the underground shopping walkway in Toronto. If you’re not familiar with the PATH….well trust me when I say this polish is aptly named!

Yeah the picture above pretty much sums that up!!!

This polish is super unique. There is a lot going on but it’s not overwhelming or too busy. It’s a perfectly done polish in my opinion! And when you see the inspiration picture you’ll probably like it even more:

First of all, I want to be there. Second of all, Sugar Beach is an urban beach park. You read that right!
