Girly Bits Perry-twinkle: Swatches, Review and Comparisons

Hi everyone! You may remember a few weeks ago, I showed you Girly Bits Flash Your Tips, which was included in the A Box, Indied subscription box for March. Well Girly Bits is included in the April box with this beautiful periwinkle holo, perfect for spring.

When I first saw this, I wondered if it was close to Flash Your Tips. So I decided to do a quick comparison and include a few other purple and purple/blue holos from Girly Bits.

Perry-twinkle is a periwinkle linear holo polish, which appears to also have an iridescent shimmer that catches the light at certain times. Holo lovers will really appreciate this one, it has such a strong rainbow effect - slightly stronger than I was able to capture in my photos.

Application was perfect. I did find that this polish was a tad thick, but very manageable. Otherwise I have no issues to report. This was 2 coats.

This is one of those polishes that just dazzles when it hits the light. And despite the fact that I have quite a few purple-toned holos from Girly Bits, this one is completely unique.

Comparison: I hope you can see the basic similarities/differences from this nail wheel comparison. There are two other purple holos from Girly Bits that I did not include - Ho-Ho-Hope, which is more of a warm-toned purple holo that I don't own, and Bird is the Word, which is a magenta leaning holo.

Also note, the comparison does not show the holo effects well, but is mainly to show differences in colour and shimmer. All swatches are 3 coats.

Girly Bits Purple and Bluish-Purple Holo Comparisons

  • Well Isn't That Special: A middle-of-the-road purple, not leaning towards blue or magenta. Also has a subtle flake shimmer. (my review)
  • Flash Your Tips: The darkest of the bunch. It's a blue-toned purple (or blurple) with gold and green micro glitter. (my review)
  • Perry-twinkle: A periwinkle holo with a subtle iridescent shimmer.
  • More Cowbell: Not a purple holo, but it's similar to Perry-twinkle. I like to think of it as a blue-grey version of Perry-twinkle. (my review)
  • Twitterpated: The most sheer of the six polishes, but still builds up in 3-4 coats. Has a strong pink shimmer. (my review)
  • Remembering Aja: The most saturated purple of the bunch, and for that reason has a more subtle holo effect. Also has a gold-pink shimmer. (my review)

Overall: I think this is a great addition to A Box, Indied. Girly Bits fans can get this without worrying that they will already have a dupe from that brand. If you haven't already signed up for the box, Perry-twinkle gives you a great reason to do so! And holo lovers will rejoice - all five polishes in this month's box are holos!
