Indie Wednesday: Girly Bits Jelly Shoes

Today I’m going to show off one of the newest additions to my collection:  Girly Bits Jelly Shoes!

Now, I’m a child of the 80s, so I lived in jelly shoes as a kid.  But I know some may not be familiar with them, so here’s a picture:

Jelly shoes are a slightly-see through, usually neon, slip on shoe.  My favorite version was always pink, so I’m thrilled that the polish holding this name is that exact color!

I used 2 coats of Jelly Shoes over 1 coat of Julep Kate (a white shimmer).  Next time I may go with nothing underneath, but the white REALLY made this color pop!

As you can see, there’s a blue/purple shimmer through the neon pink jelly polish, which is what really makes this color a must-have.  The shimmer is *almost* dense enough to be called glass fleck- at least in my opinion!

I made the mistake of taking these photos out in the sun earlier this week, and didn’t review them at the time.  I should’ve had a few shade pictures to show you!  But in the sun, this color is just gorgeous.  These photos are very true to life for the color- it’s really that blinding when you layer it over white.

A better shot of the shimmer for you!

Application was awesome, and I am absolutely in love with this color (as well as Arctic Sunrise, which I also bought… that will be featured tomorrow with some others!).

Pam is SO sweet and I really highly recommend ordering from her!!  She also sells Franken starter kits with some bottles, base and a choice of glitters if you’ve ever wanted to make your own colors, as well as solvent resistant glitters and of course her beautiful polishes.

The *only* downside in ordering (if you’re in the US) is that Girly Bits is in Canada, so shipping takes a bit longer when ordering directly from Pam (they’re worth the wait, but it’s something that needs to be mentioned).  However, you can also purchase her lovely polishes from Llarowe and Harlow & Co– so international ladies can absolutely enjoy the pretties too!

Girly Bits can be purchased directly from Pam on Big Cartel, and you can keep updated on news by liking her Facebook page.  Most people are familiar with Girly Bits, but if you’re not be sure to check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
