Girly Bits Codename: Duchess Collection, Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I showed you my nail art the other day with the Girly Bits Duchess Collection. It wore really well on me! I love when I get a chance to wear my manis for a while. The polishes are so high quality, so let's check out this Archer-inspired collection. I actually watched the show for like the first 4 seasons, and I catch it at night sometimes. I know these names well though, and it definitely gave me a giggle!



Girly Bits Codename: Duchess Collection, Swatches and Review

Danger Zone: 2 coats plus top coat. This is the most duo-chrome polish of the 5. There's a noticeable orange shimmer in the red polish. Totally reminds me of the Danger Zone. I love how this red transforms outside!

Holy Sh!tsnacks: 2-3 coats plus top coat. This one depends on your nail length. Shorter nails will only require 2 coats. I actually purchased this from the collection before I knew I was getting it because I loved the color combo. Gold, yellow gold, red, purple, and holo together make up a gorgeous microglitter. It's perfectly festive but also an all year color.

Here is the polish in the shade, where you can easily see the purple, red, and gold. I love it. It's awesome for the holidays and for new years.

 Lanaaaa!: 2 coats plus top coat. Any purple will love this polish. The pink shimmer is super pretty and delicate and makes the purple glow. It reminds me of royalty.

Phrasing: 2 coats plus top coat. I love this shade of teal and it has a really pretty teal to navy shift. At extreme angles, you can see purple. I really love this shade and it's perfect for winter!

Just the Tip: 2 coats plus top coat. This is the one polish that doesn't seem like a holiday polish, but I think I proved that it totally is. I'm not a crelly fan in general, but I've been drawn to them lately. I think this color has now convinced me that I need more crellies. The glitters in Just the Tip are of the colors of the shimmers and more. I love the rainbow and the slight sparkle.

Crellies with glitter require matte top coat, as far as I am concerned. So here it is with one coat of Girly Bits Polish Matte'rs.

Sploosh: 2 coats plus top coat. This gets said a lot on the show, and while it's not about water, the color reminds me of it. It's a blue shimmer polish with a gorgeous blue shimmer.

That's How You Get Ants: 2 coats plus top coat. This is totally an iconic line from the show so I'm glad it showed up in the polishes! It's a magenta shimmer with a rich pink flask and a slight orange to fuchsia shift. This one isn't as duochrome but it's really pretty.

Outside, in indirect sun, this color is so rich!
