It’s that time of year again! Time to share the 2015 additions of Girly Bits What REALLY happened in Vegas collection! I wish I had the pleasure of meeting Pam at CPNA last month, but my schedule was so crazy that we missed each other. This 5 piece collection is absolutely GORGEOUS! I have also included the limited edition shade ‘What Happens in Vegas.. Ends Up On Snapchat’ as well. All of these will be available for pre order this coming Friday, August 28th, at 3pm EST until Monday, August 31st, 3pm EST. All orders will begin shipping September 4th.
Blue Ribbon Cankles : Vibrant blue jelly filled with super sparkly holographic microglitter. Photo below shows two coats.
Inspiration : Travelling + heat + less than comfy shoes + being over tired + a drink or two can certainly do a job on the feet as far as water retention goes. Let me tell you, we had some prize winning cankles happening. I am pretty sure there was not one of us who had anything less than an honourable mention. Once those shoes came off, they were NOT going back on willingly.
DownTown Funk : Rosey pink crelly filled with gold shimmer, holographic microglitter and gold microglitter. Photo below shows two coats.
Inspiration : The second of two off site Indie related events in Vegas brought Indies, Bloggers, and Stockists together to Ooohh and Ahhh over all the gorgeous products displayed beautifully (and creatively!) by various brands. It was held at a slightly off-strip boutique hotel which was beautiful and comfortable, and a handful of brands called it home for the week as well. While I am sure the rooms were *ahem* ‘clean’ some of them did possess a certain questionable aroma, which definitely makes you wonder what kind of debauchery had taken place previously
It Was The FireBall : True red linear holo. Photo below shows two coats.
Inspiration : Preparing for, attending and/or displaying at two events that are across the country for most, where we wanted everything to be perfect, can certainly create a lot of stress. It’s difficult to plan an event, or a table scape for showcasing your products in a space you have never seen. You plan for months. You mock-up your display, and change your mind a million times. You double and triple and quadruple check the list of supplies you need and try and anticipate hiccups. You pack the majority of the product and display items and ship them to the hotel ahead of time, and pray they arrive on time and in one piece. You hope you didn’t leave too much to have to take with you on the plane, and you REALLY hope the TSA doesn’t blink at 50 pounds of nail polish in your suitcase. You scramble around once in Vegas to try and pick up any last minute needs, and then mock up your display in your hotel room ONE more time, just in case. Of course there were items and products that were forgotten at home, or left at your hotel, but you pull yourself together and proudly display your products and are in awe at the beauty of all the other displays and products there. The gifting suite is seriously buzzing with ooohs and Ahhhs, and hugs and laughter, and LOTS of selfies. The Indie events are by far my favourite part of the entire weekend, even with all the stress. Once the evening winds down everyone relaxes a bit and we kick off our shoes and just chill with each other enjoying the space, the food, the drinks, the new friends, the reunions with old friends, and the success of the evening. Did I mention that we enjoy the drinks? Someone, who shall remain un-named, happened to have a glittery holo flask of Fireball in her purse. And someone else who shall also remain un-named happened to taste it. Several times. The aforementioned person kept us quite entertained, and we will just blame it on the Fireball.
The Shaft : Bronze holo with a metallic finish. Also has accents of bronze flakes. Photo below shows two coats.
Inspiration : If you have ever stayed at the Luxor in the pyramid, you have most likely ridden the elevator. That is one of the oddest feeling elevators I have ever been on. It goes up and down on the diagonal, since it’s in an actual pyramid shaped building. Elevators can feel weird in the belly to begin with, but add a sideways motion to it and it really sends you for a trip. Several of my friends happened to be in the elevator with a lovely elderly couple, and they had to use everything they had to contain themselves when they overheard the man say to his wife “Can you feel it Margaret? Can you feel it going sideways? The shaft is going sideways.”
Up All Night To Get Lucky : Melon coral crelly with gold shimmer, flakes, and holo microglitter. Photo below shows two coats.
Inspiration : After lounging by the pool at the hotel of Downtown Funk till the wee hours of the morning we needed to get some food in our bellies. Directly across the street from the hotel was an all-night eatery called Mr. Lucky’s, so a few of us (including my trooper of a husband) headed over there for late night nibbles and pancakes. At 4:30 am we decided we had better head back to our rooms since we still had a long day ahead of us.
What Happens In Vegas, Ends Up On SnapChat : Light silver / lilac linear holographic polish accented with holo microglitter. Photo below shows three coats.
This collection is EVERYTHING. The application / formula on every single one of these was absolute perfection. If you are already a fan of Pam’s polishes, you are going to go nuts over these.
