Tonight I have a special polish on the blog from Girly Bits, and her name is Julia!
Before I really get into the polish, I’m going to give you a little information about Julia that Girly Bits provided!
A 24 year old that was recently named one of Canada’s 2015 Down Syndrome Heroes. Andrew was born with Down Syndrome and has been challenged with many of the associated health issues. But that does not stop Andrew!
Together with his mom Karen Pickle, Andrew founded Group Hug Apparel, originally a t-shirt company featuring his hand drawn designs. His goal was to raise a little money so that he could go to college. His “little” company has grown in the last seven years to include totes, aprons, hoodies and baby onesies.
Andrew has also used his company as a way to give back. He donates a portion of his sales from various community festivals and events to a number of local charities. To date, Andrew has donated over $35,000 to such charities as W.E. Care For Kids, the Children’s Health Foundation at the London Sick Kids Hospital and many more.
Andrew spends a good part of his spare time working on his “Andrew’s Helping Sick Kids One T-shirt At A Time Campaign” where he sends new teddy bears and Group Hug Apparel t-shirts (or onesies depending upon how tiny his recipient is!) to kids around the world who are sick in the hospital or going through treatment for an illness. Andrew sends his love and support in a personal letter with each package to keep them brave and strong.
He also asks others to pay it forward every year for his birthday with his #bethereasonsomeonesmilesday. He sends out a request to all friends and family to celebrate his birthday with a random act of kindness for the day.
And the sweetness doesn’t stop there!
Andrew is always looking for the perfect shade of pink polish for his girlfriend… and from that.. Julia was created.
Julia is a bright bubble gum pink shimmery base with light pink microglitter, silver flakes and holographic sparkle mixed in. I used 2 coats and a Girly Bits Glitter Glaze Top Coat for these photos.
Julia applied flawlessly and looks so girly and gorgeous!
Julia is available for pre-order starting NOW!

I love Girly Bits and had every intention on purchasing this shade (just like Gentle Ginger & Roger That) so because I received this for review instead, I will be donating $3.00 for Andrew’s Campaign.
Hope you enjoyed this shade and the story behind it. Will you be ordering one? I hope so!
