Girly Bits - Shift Happens

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hope you all have had a nice weekend! It's been fun seeing the different St. Patrick's Day mani's that you all came up with! Because of some of you, I now have a few green polishes I need to add to my wish list!

Today, I wanted to show you one of my newest, most favorite polish in my collection - Shift Happens by Girly Bits.

Pam, the owner and creator of Girly Bits polishes, was kind enough to send this polish to me recently for my review. I have no idea how or why I waited so long to try it! I'm so excited about this polish and all of the different layering possibilities, that I already have a few base polishes picked out to use with Shift Happens (I'm thinking a couple jellies, dark green, purple, fuchsia........  *smile*!!!!!)

I decided to layer Shift Happens over Cult Nails Time Traveler - 2 Indie brands in one mani!!!! I apologize in advance for the blue staining in my pictures below. Time Traveler (a true dark blue creme) wasn't the easiest to clean up (even with pure acetone), but the color was so incredible, I think it was worth the hassle/trouble! I wish I had taken pictures of Time Traveler by itself. But I'm sure I'll be wearing it again very soon, so I'll be sure to snap some pics when I do.

I wanted to include a variety of pictures in this review because there are so many amazing colors that come out in Shift Happens. It's THE BEST duochrome I've ever seen! No joke. 

One of the many great things about this polish is it's meant to be a polish-topper. So, you're really only using one coat for a manicure, which means one bottle will last you a long, long time! You're definitely getting your money's worth with this beauty!

All of the pictures below were taken indoors either under artificial lighting or with a flash:

These last few pictures were taken by my back door at home and outside this morning. So, kind of outdoors, with no sun:

Pam sells her Girly Bits polishes on her website. However, her shop is currently closed at the moment. Leah Ann of Llarowe has started selling Girly Bits polishes now, too. Unfortunately for polish lovers, Shift Happens is sold out on the Llarowe website. My best advice is to keep checking both websites and ordering Shift Happens as soon as you see it available! Also, check out both Pam's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/GirlyBits) and Llarowe's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Llarowe/126027514153022). By "liking" both of these pages, you're sure to be notified when Shift Happens is available again!

Mini bottles (5 ml) of Shift Happens retail for $7 on Pam's website and Full-size bottles (15 ml) retail for $11.50. For those wondering, Salon-sold Essies, Deborah Lippmann, OPI, Zoya and Cult Nails are all 15 ml in size.

I hope all of you are enjoying your Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! 



  1. Great review Katie, and this looks great on you! If you don't have it, you 'need' to get Cosmic Ocean too - it is just as amazing a duochrome - impossible to capture in pictures!

  2. Love the nails lol! I wish mine is as beautiful as that. Love the polish color.

  3. This is gorgeous!!! It's so unique!!
