Collaboration Week: Girly Bits x The PolishAholic- Darkly Dreaming



Hi guys! Today I have the last of my Collaboration polishes to share with you. This one comes from Girly Bits! Girly Bits was one of the very first indie brands I ever tried and fell in love with! Pam never ceases to amaze me with all the gorgeous polishes she puts out. I always love the inspirations behind her polishes and how she brings them to life!

If you've been reading The PolishAholic for a while you probably have seen me mention numerous times that I've been lusting after a green with a copper shimmer. It's been a polish I've been wanting for literally like 2 years, I've never managed to find the perfect one! When I was talking to Pam about this collaboration I was pretty much like "I need a green version of Cu Blue in my life" and Darkly Dreaming was born! This is exactly what I've been after for so so long, it's the perfect dark forest green and it's jelly enough that the copper shimmer to shines through beautifully. It's basically everything I could have wanted it to be!

The name was inspired by Dexter! The first book in the Dexter series is called Darkly Dreaming Dexter! If you liked the show I highly recommend reading the books, they are different and so good. If you remember back a little over a year when I collaborated with piCture pOlish you might remember me saying that Darkly Dreaming was the original name of Mallard! I've been holding onto this name for a long time and I feel like it fits perfectly with this polish :)



Giant thank you to Pam for finally making my perfect green with a copper shimmer happen. I've been wanting a polish just like this for so long that it's almost surreal that I finally have it!

Girly Bits can be purchased at http://www.girlybitscosmetics.com/, you can also find them at several stockists including Llarowe, Harlow & Co, Mei Mei's Signatures, Overall Beauty and Femme Fatale Cosmetics

  13. Wow, this is an INCREDIBLE polish! And Darkly Dreaming is such a perfect name - it seems sort of fairy-tale-y, which also works well with the 'magical forest' look of this polish! I'm glad you held out and waited to use it for your dream polish :)

  14. Sorry that this is so random but do you know what color this is? http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/3b/25/d8/3b25d8edf96450f85389ceeb226d5cf1.jpg I've tried everything I can think of to figure out what it is and I can't seem to.

    I LITERALLY gasped when I saw this! It is absolutely breathtaking. I've been following your blog for over a year, but I'm generally more of a lurker and not much of a commenter. But, this! I HAD to let you know how completely in love I am with this color. Wow, wow, wow! :)
