Good afternoon, dear readers, and happy Friday! I am excited to finally be able to share all the details in this post with you today, so let me skip the chit chat and get to what you really want to hear about anyway! If you've been following the indie polish community for at least a year now, you might already know that Girly Bits Cosmetics released a limited edition shade, What Happens in Vegas....Ends Up on Facebook last year to commemorate Pam's trip to Las Vegas for Cosmoprof North America. In honor of CPNA for 2014, Pam will be selling another polish: What Happen in Vegas....Ends Up on Instagram! I have swatches of both these gorgeous polishes to share with you, and you're going to want to stay for the full post because there is even MORE awesome news to share! Let's party!
What Happens in Vegas.... Ends Up on Instagram
Indoors with "Daylight" Bulb
Outdoors in the Sun
WHIVEUOIG is a bright raspberry-fuchsia scattered holographic polish, with flashes of glowy purple microglitter, and bright pink micro glitter. Very flashy and blingy, just like Vegas.
WHIVEUOIG was created exclusively for Sparkle & Wine, a blogger/brand/stockist event co-hosted by Girly Bits and KBShimmer at Mandalay Bay while everyone was attending CPNA this year. Now you can have this stunning polish! It will be available for a limited time only, from August 21st to August 31st. You do not want to miss out on this beauty!
I used three coats plus top coat for these photos.
If you missed out on last year's polish, you are in luck! Girly Bits is re-launching last year's exclusive CPNA polish for a limited time!

WHIVEUOFB is a medium plummy holographic polish, with flashes of glowy purple microglitter.
WHIVEUOFB was created exclusively for bloggers Pam met up with while attending CPNA in 2013 and was available for sale shortly after the show. It was created in limited quantities, and it sold out within minutes. Girly Bits is re-launching this gorgeous shade in case you missed it! It will be available for a limited time only, from August 21st to August 31st.
But wait, there's more! (You know I just HAD to say it!)
In addition to these gorgeous polishes, Girly Bits is also releasing a Vegas inspired collection!
The What Really Happened in Vegas Collection will be available for purchase on August 21st as well!
Too Hot For Pants
Too Hot For Pants is a glowy fuchsia-red jelly, loaded with red and fuchsia shimmer and holo micro glitter. Lit from within! Just like us while in Vegas.
CPNA is held in Las Vegas every year in the middle of July. Even though everyone likes to say "it's only a dry heat", 100 plus degree days is still hot, and definitely too hot for pants! Dresses and maxi dresses were worn by a lot of us while there!
Selfie Bomb is a sparkly gold holo micro glitter shimmer combination accented with pink and lavender microglitter.
Selfie Bomb was inspired by a humorous moment at the Sparkle & Wine event: Linda, from NailVinyls was attempting to photograph Pam and Missi from DIFFERENTdimension using her phone. She inadvertently flipped the camera app to take a selfie without realizing her error, thereby selfie bombing their picture.
Protect Your Girly Bits
Protect Your Girly Bits is a purple scattered holographic polish, accented with flashes of red micro glitter.
I think Pam tells this story the best, so I'll let her explain the inspiration for this one:
Since we were co-hosting an event at Mandalay Bay, we had a fair amount of polish there with us, and between shopping and receiving samples we somehow end up leaving with more than we came with. I did bring a fair amount of packing materials with me but I ran out, so I had to do some creative packing to be able to ship everything home. I just happened to have some… umm…left over feminine hygiene products with me that I no longer needed, and no room in my suitcase to bring home any way. Thank you Always®, for being the perfect size to wrap around a bottle of polish and protect my Girly Bits!!
Accidental Pay Per View is a silver holographic polish, accented with glowy blue shimmer and a subtle turquoise flash.
Accidental PPV is another polish with a hilarious backstory best explained by Pam:
Three polish makers, who shall remain unnamed to protect the innocent, were sharing a room while in Vegas and one evening among wine and pedicures on tired feet, they were channel surfing for something fun to watch. Somehow, they accidentally clicked on a pay per view channel and next thing you know they had subscribed to watch a movie. Not so bad, except the type of movie they accidentally ordered is not exactly the type of movie you want showing up on your hotel bill. Ooops! XXX
I love that Las Vegas and all Pam's shenanigans has been such an inspiration for her! She has come up with some amazing polishes, and I can't wait to see them in person!
The What Really Happened in Vegas Collection will be launching August 21st at noon EDT, and each polish will be sold individually at $12 a bottle. If you want the entire 4-piece collection, you can save money by shopping early: if you buy this whole collection by August 31st at 3pm EDT, you can save $4 off the normal purchase price (pay $44 instead of $48). I know I'm excited about all these and want them all!
Which polishes are you most excited about? I'd love to hear from you!
Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
