Just about 2 weeks ago the Girly Bits Ermahgerd Flerkers Collection launched at Llarowe. I think I might have perhaps mentioned recently that I am all aboard the flakie train. I just love them! So it probably won’t come as a surprise when I tell you that I decided to take a peek during the launch.
I think the thing I find most fascinating about the flake polishes is that there are only a handful of different flake colors available, excluding the metallic type used by ILNP, and please correct me if I’ve got my facts messed up here. Yet each brand that chose to create a collection developed polishes that look significantly different enough to get my attention…and some of my paycheck!
The Girly Bits Ermahgerd Flerkers Collection
is made up of 12 polishes that are all Limited Edition. When the flakes are gone there will be no more of these beauties so I wouldn’t wait if you see something you like. I was very proud of myself that I limited my purchase to 2 bottles, so far at least. And you are going to get a good laugh when you see the names of my picks!
Enabler is a red-yellow flakie in a violet micro-flake base. The formula is jam packed with flakies and this was my attempt at applying one thin coat over a black creme so you could still see some differentiation in the flakes. I topped this one with a shiny topcoat and it went crazy flashing orange, pink, green, yellow, purple and even some blue! GORGEOUS!
Must. Resist. is cobalt blue flakes in a clear base. This one is not “shifty” like my other flake polishes, but the blue is so stunning all by itself that I just had to have it in my collection. Again the formula is loaded with flakies and this is one thin coat over my black creme polish. I tested this one with both shiny and matte topcoats and decided the flakes really stood out when matte. I saw teal blue and some purple in it at times, but the camera mainly captured the amazing cobalt blue. It’s so intense that it GLOWS! You do see it glowing in the bottle, right???
Enabler and Must. Resist. What’s a girl to do except get confused and buy both?? And I couldn’t be happier with my choices! After reading about Pam’s experiences on her website about these flakies popping over all different colors I am excited to do some experimenting of my own.
At the time of writing the collection was fully stocked at Llarowe, and I have it on good authority that it will be restocked on the Girly Bits website on February 16th, plus a few new non-flakie colors.
I would love to hear what you think of these polishes! Have you gotten hooked on flakies like I have? Or will you be happy when I stop blogging about them?? LOL! If you have a personal favorite from any brand I would love to see it! Just attach a photo in your Comment below.
Thanks for reading! I’ll see you at the next post!
