Guest Post with LyLyNails - Nail Whitening Tutorial

Hello everyone!
First of all I'd like to thank Pam for the opportunity to guest post.  My name is Sahyly from LyLyNails on IG. Today I'd like to share a little whitening treatment I've been doing for about 2 yrs already and it has been working wonderfully for me.
It's a soak. I do this once a week after my normal nail care routine. I'm sure you can find these ingredients in your kitchen. You'll need the following:

              
Mix these in the following order:
1st water
2nd vinegar
3rd baking soda
Lastly the oil and quickly submerge your nails in it. The bubbles will work to whiten your nails. Soak for about 10 mins or less depending on the amount of staining you have. You can also do this soak each time you remove polish if your stains are bad. Once the stains are pretty much gone, to maintain just do it once a week.


Also, one thing I like to do after is scrub my nails with a hand scrub and a nail brush. Please remember like any other treatment this will not work with just one soak. It's a process, takes some time. You just need to be consistent and dedicated.
I hope you try this and please feel free to let me know how it worked for you! Thanks for reading, bye!! Best Blogger Tips

NEW! AT GIRLY BITS Vegas inspired shades and blogger collaborations!


What happens when you get a group of indie polish makers and bloggers together in Vegas? Laughter ensues, friendships are formed and inspiration happens!

Five out eight of our latest releases were inspired by a recent trip to the Cosmoprof North America Show (one shade is a relaunch from last year's trip...yep! WHIVEUOF is back for a limited time!!!)

In addition to our very sparkly Vegas inspired shades, we are also proud to present two collaboration shades, created with a couple of our favourite bloggers, Sassy Shelly andPolished to Precision.

All of our new releases will be available beginning Thursday, August 21st at 12noon EDT. NOTE: What Happens In Vegas...Instagram and What Happens In Vegas...Facebook will only be available for a limited time, until Sunday, August 31st at 3pm EDT<
What Really Happened in Vegas? Wouldn't you love to know! Okay okay, we'll tell ya! To start off with it was "Too Hot For Pants", then there was a "Selfie Bomb", a need to "Protect My Girly Bits"  topped off with an unfortunate "Accidental PPV" incident.

Shop early and save! Purchase the entire Collection of 4 for only $44 from Thursday, August 21st at 12noon EDT until Sunday, August 31st at 3pm EDT.
Too Hot For Pants

Too Hot For Pants is a glowy fuchsia-red jelly, loaded with red and fuchsia shimmer and holo micro glitter. Lit from within! Just like us while in Vegas.
I am Canadian. I am used to hot, humid, sticky summer weather. Vegas is a dry heat. But it is still HEAT. And it was definitely too hot for pants. Thank goodness for maxi dresses!
Retail: $12
Selfie Bomb
Selfie Bomb is a sparkly gold holo micro glitter shimmer combination accented with pink and lavender microglitter.
Selfie Bomb was inspired by a moment at the Sparkle & Wine event, when Linda from Nail Vinyls was attempting to take a picture of me and Missi from Different Dimension using her phone. Missi and I put on our best glam faces for Linda, as she raised her phone for the perfect shot. What she didn’t realise, is that she had flipped the camera app to take a selfie and basically selfie bombed our picture.
Retail: $12
Protect Your Girly Bits
Protect Your Girly Bits is a purple scattered holographic polish, accented with flashes of red micro glitter.
Since we were co-hosting an event at Mandalay Bay, we had a fair amount of polish there with us, and between shopping and receiving samples we somehow end up leaving with more than we came with. I did bring a fair amount of packing materials with me but I ran out, so I had to do some creative packing to be able to ship everything home. I just happened to have some… umm…left over feminine hygiene products with me that I no longer needed, and no room in my suitcase to bring home any way. Thank you Always®, for being the perfect size to wrap around a bottle of polish and protect my Girly Bits!!
Retail: $12
Accidental PPV
Accidental Pay Per View is a silver holographic polish, accented with glowy blue shimmer and a subtle turquoise flash.
Three polish makers, who shall remain unnamed to protect the innocent, were sharing a room while in Vegas and one evening among wine and pedicures on tired feet, they were channel surfing for something fun to watch. Somehow, they accidentally clicked on a pay per view channel and next thing you know they had subscribed to watch a movie. Not so bad, except the type of movie they accidentally ordered is not exactly the type of movie you want showing up on your hotel bill. Ooops! XXX
Retail: $12
You know we just had to release another What Happens In Vegas shade! After the frenzy to get your hands on our LE Facebook version last year we have changed the availability from a limited number to a limited time that our latest Instagram version will be available. Don't forget to grab last years edition as well!
What Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Instagram
What Happens in Vegas….Ends up on Instagram is a bright raspberry-fuchsia scattered holographic polish, with flashes of glowy purple micro glitter, and bright pink micro glitter. Very flashy and blingy, just like Vegas.
WHIVEUOIG was created exclusively for Sparkle & Wine - a blogger/brand/stockist event co-hosted by Girly Bits and KBShimmer at Mandalay Bay while we were attending Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas this year. It will be available for a limited time ONLY (Aug 21-31)
We are also re-launching last year’s exclusive Cosmoprof NA polish for a limited time. (Aug21-31)
Retail: $12
What Happens In Vegas...Ends Up On Facebook (Re-launch)
What Happens in Vegas…Ends up on Facebook is a medium plummy holographic polish, with flashes of glowy purple microglitter.
WHIVEUOFB was created exclusively for bloggers we met while attending Cosmoprof North America in 2013. It was released in limited quantity, and quickly sold out. We are bringing it back for a limited time ONLY (Aug 21-31)
Retail: $12
We love collaborations! Our two newest blogger collaborations, Seriously Sassy (pictured above) and Mint-al Precision are sure to impress.
Seriously Sassy
Seriously Sassy is a collaboration polish with Sassy Shelly, for her 2 year blog anniversary.
It is a royal purple jelly, with blue to purple colour shifting glitter.
Retail: $12
Mint-al Precision
Mint-al Precision is a collaboration polish with Polished To Precision for her 1 year blog anniversary.
It is an aqua-mint shimmer, loaded with green and blue shifting flakes.
Retail: $12

DON'T FORGET TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR AUGUST 21ST!

Price Increase effective July 15th

​This is the announcement that we knew would have to come some day, but truly dreaded having to say. Due a number of reasons that include the increasing cost of materials, in addition to the poor performance of the Canadian Dollar, we are so sorry to have to increase the price of our nail lacquer at this time.

The cost of day to day operation has continued to increase for Girly Bits Cosmetics since its creation in 2011, with a large jump coming over the past 6-12 months. We have been able to avoid increasing the price of a shades original launch price until now.

Part of our issue, the exchange rate, does fluctuate on a daily basis, however it has been consistently high for us for quite some time now.

We held off for as long as we could, however in order to continue to provide a quality product to our customers we (reluctantly) will have to increase our retail prices.

The price increase for our nail lacquer will be as follows:

  • PREVIOUSLY $10.00 (CAD) ~ NEW $11.00 (CAD)
  • PREVIOUSLY $11.50 (CAD) ~ NEW $12.00 (CAD)
  • PREVIOUSLY $12.50 (CAD) ~ NEW $13.00 (CAD)


All other product prices (nail care, glitter, DIY polish supplies) will not be part of this increase.

If you have any questions or concerns about our price increase, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at info@girlybitspolish.com and we would be more than happy to assist.
