Lit from Within: Wow, that is some Street Magic!

Wow, that is some Street Magic!

As underwhelmed as I was with Cosmic Ocean, Girly Bits Street Magic made up for it.

Not that it wasn't a little rocky in the beginning.  You really have to figure out how to make these shine. So I read reviews, and most seemed to agree that a purple with a shimmer was the best base coat for SM.   I started with a frosty purple underwear, but SM did nothing.  Sure, there were a few sparkles on the nail, but it fell flat.  I used that purple in another mani I'll show you later.

This, this... this is the Holy Grail of SM underpants, if I may say so.  This is Finger Paints Whose Hue?.  It's so pretty, I almost didn't want to cover it up.  It's a beautiful purple with a hints of pink and eggplant.  Every purple polish lover should have this. 

It's gorgeous on it's own, but I loved it under Street Magic.  This is 2 coats, no topcoat.
SM shifts primarily from green to orangey-copper, and you can see there's also purple and some pink.

I love to do nail art, but I couldn't bear to cover this up, so I got out the Bundle Monster rhinestones, and found these light green teardrops that I thought complimented SM perfectly.  I put one near the cuticle on my thumb and ring finger of both hands.

I love subtle accents with studs and stones - maybe someday I'll bling out an entire mani, but for now, this just feels right.  These were great, too - a little topcoat and an orange stick and they went right on and stayed on all day.  I was even able to take them off at the end of the day and save them for another mani down the road, if I don't lose them before then.

Are you a Girly Bits fan now, too?  I have Hocus Pocus and Into the Night, but it's been raining non-stop here in Central Florida, and I don't want to waste a holo or mega-sparkly when there's no sun...

The Bundle Monster rhinestones were given to the Central Florida Beauty Bloggers for review.  Nonetheless, my opinions are my own and as unbiased as possible.
