Girly Bits Winter Sanctuary 3 Year Blogiversary Shade Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

On December 31st I hit my 3 year blogiversary milestone!  It’s weird for me to think back on now because my boyfriend pushed me to do a blog and I resisted like crazy!  Had I listened to him from the start I would be in my 5th year, but I’m stubborn.

For my 3 year blogiversary I asked Pam of Girly Bits to create a shade with me and I was really excited when she said she would.  I sent off some color inspiration photos and she went to work on my creation.  I told her to tweak as necessary since I trust her judgement and then Winter Sanctuary was born.

Ready to take a look?

Winter Sanctuary

Winters Sanctuary

Winter Sanctuary is a medium to dark cobalt blue with a hint of purple with a scattering of holo within it.  I used 2 coats for these photos and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this turned out.  I was floored when I finally had it in my hot little hands.

Application on Winter Sanctuary was just like all of Girly Bits other creations – smooth and flawless.  I used Girly Bits Glitter Glaze as a top coat to get a gorgeous shine.

Winter Sanctuary will be going on sale around February 16th (date may change, but I will keep you updated!)

Also – stick around, I have an incredible giveaway coming in the next day or 2 that Girly Bits was incredibly generous to put together for you!

What did you think?  Thank you Pam for working with me, and here’s to another year!
