Girly Bits Canadian Eh? - Degrassi Showdown Finale Week

Good morning lovely readers!! I am still reeling from last night's episode of Degrassi, how about you? LOL. Today I have for you a polish from one of the many indie brands out there in the nail world today, Girly Bits. I chose Canadian Eh? for one of my Degrassi posts of course because Degrassi is a Canadian show but also because I am a huge fan of Canada in general. It has been said that American Degrassi fans have Canadian pride and it really is true. I also chose these colors for this mani because they are the colors of Degrassi's new junior pro hockey team, the Toronto Ice Hounds. Since they caused THE BEST FIGHT IN DEGRASSI HISTORY on last night's episode, it's only appropriate to honor them in today's post!

I chose Etude House Black Holo as the base for Canadian Eh? and I'm so glad that I did. Black Holo is a black jelly packed with holo microglitter and it really helped set off the white and red glitters in the Girly Bits polish. Canadian Eh? is a multi-shaped red and matte white glitter in a clear base with teeny bits of blue microshimmer. I'm not usually a huge fan of white matte glitter but it definitely works here. Application of both polishes was super easy, though I wish more of the square glitters in Canadian Eh? would have come out to play on the nail. I only got three square glitters on all ten of my nails, and two of them ended up on the same nail! Overall though, both had great formulas and no major problems.

So here is one coat of Girly Bits Canadian Eh? over 2 coats of Etude House Black Holo. Sorry for the less-than-stellar shots, I was rushing and didn't get any good ones. Oh well, at least with the bit of blur you can see the lovely holo sparkle in the Etude House polish. Enjoy!




And here are some of the Ice Hounds, the only hockey team that Degrassi has had in 12 seasons and "the worst thing to ever happen to Degrassi." They may be jerks but there's a few cuties in there, eh?


Edited to add this totally amazing action shot of last night's epic brawl. So cool.

I can't believe that the season finale of Degrassi is tomorrow already! It went by so fast, but at least we will have new episodes this fall again so we don't have to wait long.

Anyways, Hope everyone has a fantastic day and I will see you all tomorrow!
