Girly Bits Serendipity is a Box Indied Exclusive and I picked it up of one of the sales pages. It is a mix of pink and lilac glitters in a pinky golden holo base. It is very pretty although I am still not 100% certain if I like it. I am very fussy about my pinks and not keen on gold, I hadn't realised how gold it was when I bought it - shame on me for pouncing on it instead of doing proper research! I don't hate it but just not sure.
Anyway, it applied nicely as Girly Bits always do. It looked quite sheer on the first coat but gave great coverage on the second. I am pretty tempted to try it as topper over another shade before I decide whether to keep it or re-home it.
The photos are good, pretty accurate reflection of how pretty it is, more golden in the sun and pinky nude in the shade.
I had set myself some time today to practice reverse stamping as that is coming up in a challenge next week, and I was going to do roses but my Messy Mansion order arrived so I had to try the paisley plate MM48. I stayed with my plan to test the China Glaze Electric Nights- I recently bought the set of six minis but today I have just used three, DJ Blue My Mind, Violet Vibes and Treble Maker.
The reverse stamping worked so much better than last time, I didn't have to redo any so I am feeling more positive about next week's challenge. My colouring is not perfect, but the transfer to the nail went well, so I am happy!
I love this plate, I am so glad I bought it, can't wait to use it again!!
