It’s finally time! I can show you the newest Girly Bits collection – What Really Happened In Vegas! I was so excited to receive this collection and started working on it… then had to sit and wait for the stories so you all would know how the names came about. I was in Vegas and had the chance to meet Pam from Girly Bits and she was fabulous! Wish I had had a bit more time with her though!
Let’s take a look at this 5 piece collection – and then you can find out what REALLY happened in Vegas! After each photo I’ll give the story behind the polish, and then I’ll describe the shade. Also included at the bottom of this post is the highly anticipated What Happens In Vegas… limited edition shade! 2013 brought us Facebook, 2014 brought us Instagram and this year… you’ll see at the bottom!
Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas Downtown Funk Swatch
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 rose pink base packed with intense gold shimmer and a delicate scattering of holographic micro glitter as well as gold micro glitter. I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat. I did find this shade to be a tad on the thick side and Girly Bits said she would thin it a bit before they go out. Even at this thickness, it wasn’t difficult to work with.
It Was The Fireball
Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas It Was The Fireball Swatch
It was the Fireball: 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 stunning true red linear holographic. I used 2 easy coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Blue Ribbon Cankles
Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas Blue Ribbon Cankles Swatch
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 beautiful rich blue jelly base packed with holographic micro glitter. I used 2 simple coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Up All Night To Get Lucky
Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas Up All Night To Get Lucky Swatch
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 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 an orange leaning coral crelly packed with gold and silver shimmer and micro glitter. I used 3 thin coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.
Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas The Shaft Swatch
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 rich chocolate brown base with a linear holographic as well as bronze micro flakes and a subtle violet shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
What Happens In Vegas… Ends Up On Snapchat!
What Happens in Vegas….Ends up on Snapchat! is a light silvery lilac linear holographic polish, accented with holographic microglitter. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Girly Bits What Really Happened In Vegas Collection Overview
I absolutely LOVE the Girly Bits Vegas collections she does every year! This 5 piece collection contains a nice mix of finishes and some stunning colors. I had no application issues with these shades other than Downtown Funk being just a little on the thick side, but Pam said she would thin it just a little to fix that.
