Review- Girly Bits Street Magic and Shift Happens

Now, if you haven't heard of Girly Bits you have been missing out! Girly Bits was created by Pam who started a blog and eventually ended up creating gorgeous polishes. Pam's business has pretty much blown up in popularity over the past few months or so. Today I am going to be reviewing both Girly Bits Street Magic and Shift Happens.

First up is Street Magic which Pam describes as a gorgeous color shifting polish that changes from gold to bronze to a beautiful emerald green, right before your eyes. That description is pretty spot on. The polish is smooth in application and not too thick and not too thin. This is a layering polish so I'm pretty sure that you cannot achieve full opacity without it looking like this

Cute! Lol. So long story short, don't try this at home kids.

Next is Girly bits Shift Happens which is described as a multichromatic shimmer that flashes green, yellow, red and orange in a sheer red base. Now this bad boy has been receiving some pretty big props from bloggers all over as a close stand in for either Clarins 230 or Max Factor Fantasy Fire, both of which are pretty nonexistent or ridiculously expensive around these parts. The only difference is that Max Factor has a very blue toned bright purple base and Clarins 230 has a very red toned purple base where as Shift Happens, has the very sheer red base. I am ok with this because in my opinion, Shift Happens seems to be a little bit more versatile than either Fantasy Fire or 230. Again this polish was smooth, spread evenly, and self leveled wonderfully. 

Now onto the awesomeness

So here are the bottle shots. Let's just got ahead and collectively sigh at the duochrome goodness in the picture without the flash

Here are the polishes with Street Magic swatched over China Glaze For Audrey and Shift Happens layered over China Glaze VII. You can definitely see the color shift in Shift Happens but I'm kinda bummed that you can't really tell with Street Magic. I'm pretty sure that was my fault for layering it over a light color. Either way it was shimmery and fabulous.

So, if you are interested in purchasing any of Pam's polishes, they can be purchased through Llarowe, Harlow & Co., Overall Beauty, or Mei Mei's Signatures.  By the way, Happy Holidays! I hope it is one that is safe and full of joy! Anyways, looking forward to seeing you ladies next time when we move onto glitters!
