Girly Bits Slushie Lips & Tips

Slushie Lips & Tips was released in May this year by Canadian indie polish maker Girly Bits as one-half of the brand's serial Color of the Month Duo. Creator Pam describes it as a bright popsicle pink with an intense pink shimmer and a very reflective, almost chrome-like finish.

The base color is a brilliant, cool, medium-dark pink with a rosy aspect that's a good match for Mexican pink. Superabundant finely-milled metallic shimmers in magenta sharpen the color to more of a shocking pink appearance, giving it a glowing, semi-metallic quality on the nail with a bold, purplish-pink flash and loads of scintillating sparkle in the sun.

Application was wonderful. The consistency of Slushie Lips & Tips is fluid, light and smooth with a medium viscosity and an easy, fluent, self-leveling slip over the nail. Pigmentation is excellent -- evenly opaque in one medium coat although I used two for this manicure. Cleanup is straightforward. Slushie Lips & Tips dries naturally in amazingly fast time to a smooth shiny finish.

Such a gorgeous, showy color, a power pink! Reminds me mostly of spring and petunias, but of course is awesome for summer and I think it has the oomph to hold its own amongst winter jewel-tones as well. The flashy, semi-metallic aspect gives it an almost ecstatic quality on the nail, but the native rosiness keeps it from being too shrill or flighty and imbues it with a certain affectionate, vivacious sensibility. Sweetness with substance!

love,
