Hello lovely readers! The weather is finally starting to warm up here in the South and I’m so ready for Spring! Matching my vibes is the new Girly Bits March COTM duo along with a new exclusive! Girly Bits is officially stocking Ethereal Lacquer, and this exclusive along with the duo are available now in the shop! Let’s get on with some pretty pictures!
Cyan-tifically Proven- a cyan/azure blue base with green to purple to blue shifting shimmer, and aqua to indigo shifting iridescent shimmer, loaded with tiny silver holographic galaxy glitter, and holographic prism flakes. $12.45
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a lovely medium formula that builds up quickly. This is such a vibrant blue, the base is a true brilliant cyan and the shimmer pops like crazy giving an aqua glow. The holo has a densely scattered effect appearing as very tiny and brilliant sparkles all over. No texture after topcoat.
Things Get Better With Sage- a muted grass green (sage green?) holo accented with iridescent colour shifting flakes in green to blue. $12.45
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula also applies very smooth and feels medium on the brush strokes. The base is a lovely green that seats itself happily between sage and a dusky grass green. The flakes give dimension and give off an iridescent appearance going between blues and greens. No texture after topcoat.
Lunar Love is a bright indigo jelly with linear holographic shimmer and colour shifting chameleon flakes. $12.63
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula has a glossy jelly feel during application. The base is a rich purple with an indigo lean in my opinion and the holo is perfectly linear all over. The flakes on this one are quite large, so I’d recommend using a light hand during application. Some of them may require a bit of pressing down with the brush and placement, but they pick up easily from the bottle. If taking care to consider the flakes during application I don’t see anyone having issues unless you go heavy on your brush strokes. I think my swatch video will give you a better idea of what I’m talking about here. You’ll want to dab on your second and/or third coats. The overall look is lovely as the flakes make a drastic pond effect on the nail and the background is the linear holo. I went in a little heavier on topcoat and my nails did not have any texture.
All three beauties are currently available in the shop, prices listed in this post are converted to USD from CAD. Be sure to also check out the other gorgeous Ethereals in stock over at Girly Bits, and get that COTM duo before the 10th to get your dollar off both bottles!
Thank you so much for reading! ❤
