After the dark spooky colours of the Halloween collection that I've swatched over the past few days I fancied a change of pace. Yes it may be wet and dreary outside but that doesn't mean it cant be summer on my nails :-)
I recently got my little mitts of the Slapdash Collection by Girly Bits and its just summer in bottles!
Arctic Sunrise is a stunning sky blue colour with masses (and I mean masses) of pink shimmer that is visible in all lights and at all angles. This is the shimmer I wanted to see in Aqua Lily by RBL but didn't.
The formula is smooth and easy to work with, needing only two coats to reach full opacity. For these swatches I topped off my mani with one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Banana Hammock is quite a unique polish. I find yellow a very hard colour to wear but this yellow actually works for me. Its not quite a neon, not quite a lemon and not quite a banana (if that makes sense!).
Maybe its the gorgeous blue/green shimmer that comes out to play in the autumn sun that makes this polish my surprise favourite of the collection.
The formula is a crelly and it needs a few coats to become fully opaque (with no nail line). I found the best way to wear this polish was to layer it over a white base as it gave the true colour of the polish. The swatches here show two coats of Banana Hammock over a white base and topped off with one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

When my daughter first saw this she went nuts over it and I had to do her nails immediately, she called it highlighter green! That's exactly the colour that springs to mind with Glo Worm, its a bright lime green packed with yellow shimmer that is not shy. This colour dances in the sunlight, its truly stunning.
The formula is jelly like so it needs a few coats to reach full opacity and no visible nail line. I preferred to layer it over a white base as I did with Banana Hammock, it gives the green extra pop! The swatches here show two coats of Glo Worm over a white base, followed by a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
