Ready for a little Holiday Magic?!?

In case you missed our latest newsletter...

Hold on to your seats! This newsletter is full of lots of great announcements!

Psst! There are some very exciting new products coming,
so make sure you read all the way to the bottom.
I know, it’s WAY down there, but I promise you don’t want to miss out!! 

First up, I am excited to have collaborated with Megan Edwards to bring you a stunning collection of sparkly goodness for the holiday. Megan is a spokesperson for Girly Bits as well as a model and entertainment personality, and is immersed in the fashion and entertainment scene in Vancouver, Canada. You have seen her gorgeous face on the front of our fold-overs and various promo images. She is currently with Virgin Radio, as well as a panelist on CTV news: Fame Factor.

Megan and I worked together to create this fabulous collection of 9 classic holiday colours with Girly Bits flair and we hope that we have created collection that will offer something for everyone’s taste. 
Sandy Claws

Sandy Claws is a light nude linear holo accented with pink and purple shimmer. It will fit in well at the office or be your perfect accessory at the office Christmas party!

$13 CAD
Love Your Elf

Love Your Elf is a delicate pink with lavender undertones, and silver shimmer and flakes. It’s so soft and pretty for the winter season and reminds me of cozy hats and gloves, and wintry lounge wear.

$13 CAD
Don't Tangle Your Tinsel

Don't Tangle Your Tinsel s multi sized holographic silver glitter that offers full coverage in two easy coats. The perfect bling for New Years Eve!

$13 CAD
Blazing Yule Before Us

Blazing Yule Before Us is an interesting combination of gold shimmer and gold flakes. It has a semi-metallic quality without being super reflective. It's more like antique gold and reminds me of glowing embers of a cozy fire. I think it would be the perfect accent to any of the other polishes is the Holiday Magic collection.

$13 CAD
Little Red Toque

The twinkle and sparkle in Little Red Toque is truly amazing! This vibrant red base is a jelly, but it has amazing coverage and needs only two easy coats. It’s loaded with gold holographic twinkle, and must be seen in person.

$13 CAD
Jiminy Christmas

Jiminy Christmas is another classic holiday colour with the added punch of holo sparkle! I started with an evergreen jelly base, loaded it with holographic green glitter. It twinkles like your Christmas Tree!

$13 CAD
No Peeking 'Til 7AM

No Peeking ‘Til 7AM is a vampy, sexy, burgundy wine crelly that applies like a creme. Doubles as a stamping polish.

$13 CAD
Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas is a deep dark navy, and is so chic! This crème is nearly a one coater and doubles as a stamping polish.

$13 CAD
Coal Dancer

Coal Dancer has multiple sizes of black and silver holo glitter, accented with sapphire blue holo glitter, in a semi sheer black jelly base. Buildable in 2-3 coats for full coverage. Incredibly sparkly! A perfect polish to round out the year with.

$13 CAD
The Holiday Magic collection launches Sunday, November 22, 2015 at 12noon EST.



...AND the entire collection ships FREE within North America!!

We know how you overseas ladies hate missing out, and how high shipping can be {shakes fist at Canada Post!!}
I am also very happy to introduce FREE SHIPPING on Overseas orders over $200!!! 
YAY! You came all the way down here to see the new products!

The first Girly Bits Cosmetics stamping plate...WHHAATTT!?!?
I had so much fun creating this plate full of designs that are inspired by images I am drawn to, and even one that is a replica of my very first tattoo! Some of you may know that my oldest daughter is an aspiring singer {insert shameless mom plug for Jen Knight} so I have a tattoo of music notes that form a star image.

There are also images that are specifically designed for reverse stamping and decals, as well as the obligatory Girly Bits logo because, hey why not? Your first custom stamping plate only happens once right?

I also have a few other coordinating products coming but the details aren’t finalized yet, so I will be in touch later this week with an update on that.
GBC Plate 1-01 features custom designs in a variety of sizes to suit many different sized nails.  The designs are 17 x 21mm, expertly engraved on a 9.5cm by 14.5cm plate and are built to cover edge-to-edge on even the largest natural nails. I also included some smaller single coordinating images for tinier nails, simpler looks, or perhaps a little someone wants a little design to match mommy’s manicure!
GBC Plate 1-01 will be available for $24 CAD on Nov 22nd at 12noon EST along with the Holiday Magic collection.
Happy Shopping!

Reborn by Smokey Mountain Lacquers
a fuchsia crelly with a hint of shimmer that is black light reflective

And now for some helpful FAQ's from Philly Loves Lacquer for your reference!

Q: Why did you choose to do 8 makers and 8 polishes instead of the normal 4 makers and 4 polishes/4extras?
A: We wanted to make a special box to celebrate the BQB's one-year anniversary, so we included 2015's favorite guests, as well as two well-known Canadian indie brands.

Q: Is this a subscription?
A: No! The BQB is a pre-order, and will be available from September 15th until September 30th, or if we run out of our cap of 50 boxes sooner.

Q: Will you sell more than 50 boxes?
A: Possibly. If we sell out quickly, and there's a high demand, we may release some more sets.

Q: Where can I buy the BQB+4? Will it be available in all the maker's shops?
A: No, it will only be available for purchase at www.phillyloveslacquer.com

Q: When will the BQB+4 ship? Will I get it by Halloween?
A: The BQB+4 will ship in the beginning of October, once I receive all of the makers' contributions. You will receive tracking information as soon as the box ships. I am reasonably certain that you will in fact receive the box by Halloween.

Q: Will the polishes in the box be available individually or outside of the box?
A: All of the polishes in the BQB/BQB+4 are exclusive to the box, and will not be made available individually outside of the BQB. However, some of us do choose to sell our extra bottles in mystery bags, but we cannot guarantee this will be the case.

Q: Why can't I redeem PhLL Rewards Points on my BQB/BQB+4 orders? Will I still earn my points?
A: Since the BQB/BQB+4 is a combined effort between several makers, and the proceeds are shared amongst them, redeeming reward points specific to PhLL is not fair to the rest of the box participants. However, you can absolutely earn points with your purchase, which will be usable on future orders that do not contain a BQB, prototype, or mystery bag.

Q: Do any of the makers in the BQB use the harmful base that Mentality uses? 
A: No. We can all safely say that we do not use the same base, and can provide confirmation from our suppliers to back up our claim, if needed.

Vegas, Baby! Oh The Stories I Have For You! {LIMITED LAUNCH TIMES ENCLOSED}

*Read all the way to the end. Lots of exciting new products coming!*
View this email in your browser
Thanks to our annual trips to Vegas, this is now probably one of my favourite times of the year! Not only do I get to create gorgeous shades to add to the "What Really Happened In Vegas" Collection, but I get to relive all of the craziness that is Cosmoprof and share my stories with you.
The "What Really Happened In Vegas" Collection started last year with 4 polishes inspired by the memorable things that happened while I was in Vegas for Cosmoprof North America 2014.

It is with great pleasure, (and surprisingly no embarrassment on my part this year) that I share with you the 2015 additions to the collection.

It Was The Fireball

(This story is a long one...I promise they will not all be this long!)

Preparing for, attending and/or displaying at two events that are across the country for most, where we wanted everything to be perfect, can certainly create a lot of stress. It’s difficult to plan an event, or a table scape for showcasing your products in a space you have never seen. You plan for months. You mock-up your display, and change your mind a million times. You double and triple and quadruple check the list of supplies you need and try and anticipate hiccups. You pack the majority of the product and display items and ship them to the hotel ahead of time, and pray they arrive on time and in one piece. You hope you didn’t leave too much to have to take with you on the plane, and you REALLY hope the TSA doesn’t blink at 50 pounds of nail polish in your suitcase.  You scramble around once in Vegas to try and pick up any last minute needs, and then mock up your display in your hotel room ONE more time, just in case. Of course there were items and products that were forgotten at home, or left at your hotel, but you pull yourself together and proudly display your products and are in awe at the beauty of all the other displays and products there.  The gifting suite is seriously buzzing with ooohs and Ahhhs, and hugs and laughter, and LOTS of selfies. The Indie events are by far my favourite part of the entire weekend, even with all the stress. Once the evening winds down everyone relaxes a bit and we kick off our shoes and just chill with each other enjoying the space, the food, the drinks, the new friends, the reunions with old friends,  and the success of the evening. Did I mention that we enjoy the drinks? Someone, who shall remain un-named, happened to have a glittery holo flask of Fireball in her purse. And someone else who shall also remain un-named happened to taste it. Several times. The aforementioned person kept us quite entertained, and we will just blame it on the Fireball.

It Was The Fireball is a true red linear holo.

$13.00 CAD

Blue Ribbon Cankles

Travelling + heat +  less than comfy shoes + being over tired + a drink or two can certainly do a job on the feet as far as water retention goes. Let me tell you, we had some prize winning cankles happening. I am pretty sure there was not one of us who had anything less than an honourable mention. Once those shoes came off, they were NOT going back on willingly.

Blue Ribbon Cankles is a vibrant blue jelly, filled with super sparkly holographic microglitter.

$13.00 CAD

The Shaft

If you have ever stayed at the Luxor in the pyramid, you have most likely ridden the elevator. That is one of the oddest feeling elevators I have ever been on. It goes up and down on the diagonal, since it’s in an actual pyramid shaped building. Elevators can feel weird in the belly to begin with, but add a sideways motion to it and it really sends you for a trip. Several of my friends happened to be in the elevator with a lovely elderly couple, and they had to use everything they had to contain themselves when they overheard the man say to his wife “Can you feel it Margaret? Can you feel it going sideways? The shaft is going sideways.”

The Shaft is a stunning bronzy brown holo with a metallic finish, accented with beautiful bronze flakes. Must be seen!!

$13.00 CAD

Downtown Funk

The second of two off site Indie related events in Vegas brought Indies, Bloggers, and Stockists together to Ooohh and Ahhh over all the gorgeous products displayed beautifully (and creatively!) by various brands. It was held at a slightly off-strip boutique hotel which was beautiful and comfortable, and a handful of brands called it home for the week as well. While I am sure the rooms were *ahem* ‘clean’ some of them did possess a certain questionable aroma, which definitely makes you wonder what kind of debauchery had taken place previously.

Downtown Funk is a rosey pink crelly, filled with gorgeous gold shimmer, holographic microglitter and gold microglitter. Delicate and pretty!!!

$13.00 CAD

Up All Night To Get Lucky

After lounging by the pool at the hotel of Downtown Funk till the wee hours of the morning we needed to get some food in our bellies. Directly across the street from the hotel was an all-night eatery called Mr. Lucky’s, so a few of us (including my trooper of a husband) headed over there for late night nibbles and pancakes. At 4:30 am we decided we had better head back to our rooms since we still had a long day ahead of us.

Up All Night To Get Lucky is a melon coral crelly, packed with gold shimmer, flakes, and  holographic microglitter.

$13.00 CAD
So, what do you think of these beauties? They were previewed at the Cocktails & Colors Media Gifting Suite this year in in Vegas and were VERY well received.

The 2015 additions to the  "What Really Happened In Vegas" Collection will be launching at www.girlybitscosmetics.com on Friday, August 28, 2015 at 3:00PM EDT. Please see other important launch information below.

For a limited time, order all five of the 2015 additions and save $1.00 off each bottle. (Limited Time Launch Price $60.00 CAD)

And now, on to this years limited edition of "What Happens In Vegas...". After much consideration, and polling the members of our Facebook group, Snapchat was the clear winner of the name for this years edition.

What Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Snapchat!

What Really Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Snapchat! is a is a light silvery lilac linear holographic polish, accented with holographic microglitter.  It’s the third annual polish in the LE Vegas series.

$13.00 CAD
What Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Snapchat! will be available for pre-order at www.girlybitscosmetics.com for a 72 hour period only!

Pre-order time:
Friday, August 28, 2015 3:00PM EDT
Monday, August 31, 2015 3:00 PM EDT 

All orders containing WHIVEUOS will begin shipping Friday, September 4, 2015. Please see other important launch information below.


Stardust is a silvery/smokey blue holo, with pink and blue shimmer, and neon microglitters. It is truly a stunner and looks amazing in both low light and bright sunlight.

It was created in collaboration with Ehmkay Nails for her blog anniversary. "I wanted a holographic polish that wasn't super linear and was dusted with neon microglitters. I wanted the neon to be there but not THERE, hence the microglitter instead of larger glitter. Well, that's what you see! There's green, pink, and blue neon microglitter in a silvery lilac holographic base...I hope you love it as much as I do! It really is my idea of what dust from stars would look like!"

$13.00 CAD
The Blogger Collaborations are some of my favourites in the Girly Bits Cosmetics line. It is always so much fun to see what comes from two creatives putting their minds together!

Stardust will be launching on Friday, August 28, 2015 at 3:00PM EDT. Please see other important launch information below.
