Girly Bits Cosmetics Fall 2017 Collection Part 1 and 2

Girly Bits Cosmetics Fall 2017 Collection Part 1 and 2 Swatches and Review

I have swatches of Girly Bits Cosmetics Fall 2017 Collection Part 1 and 2 to share with you today. I am so excited to finally be sharing these amazing fall cremes. I am so in love with this entire collection and I'll tell you why. For starters, every single one of these apply like butter and only need ONE coat for perfect opacity. These cremes stamp like an absolute dream! It's been quite a long time since I've actually stamped and these buttery polishes made it easy peasy. I've had cremes that were made specifically for stamping and these blow them out of the water. These cremes released in 2 different parts, but I'm a bit late on these swatches so I'll be showing both parts to you in this post.

'Neodymium Magnet'



This is the magnet that will come with the Holiday duo. Please be very gentle with this magnet as it can shatter if dropped. I definitely recommend keeping it in a safe place. The Neodymium magnet will also be available to purchase separately if you do not grab the duo.

How to use magnetic polishes:

1. Apply one coat of magnetic polish to all your nails
2. Apply a thicker second coat of magnetic polish to one nail
3. Immediately grab your magnet and turn it on it's side 
4. Get up close to your polish (without touching it of course) and hover your magnet over your nail from left to right in somewhat slow motion.

Each finger should be done one at a time because once your polish dries, the magnet will not work. Because of the fast dry time, I recommend that you work fairly quickly. If for some reason it does dry, just add another coat to the nail and immediately take your magnet to it.

This is the technique that works for me, you may find a better technique that works for you.
