Girly Bits Mother May I with Shatter

Hey ho, just a quick post tonight for my NOTD. I sat down on Sunday night and decided that I wanted to do a simple mani using Girly Bits Mother May I. I started off with Ulta3 Base Coat then plopped on 1 x coat of China Glaze Light as Air as a purplish base. I decided I was going to use Girly Bits Mother May I on only 2 of my fingers and have a go a China Glaze Luminous Lilac glitter shatter on the rest for a slightly varied look :)

Left hand Luminous Lilac Shatter fail, kinda!

For a quick but relatively fun and interesting mani, I liked how this turned out. I did my left hand first with the shatter, but I didn't get it completely right until my right hand, doh! Mother May I went on really well and looks awesome and I highly recommend if you love purples and glitters. I purchased mine from Harlow & Co, and I believe you can also purchase from Llarowe. The shatter glitter did pull at the China Glaze Light as Air on my thumb to reveal a bit of nail bed which would have been rectified with 2 layers, so I would use 2 of the base polish before the shatter next time. I also think it's time to file down the nails for a bit as it's getting hard to hold the polish bottles, oh woes is me :)

Hope you liked my quick NOTD, purple is always awesome in my opinion and comes to mind first for a happy nail of the day.


  1. Beautiful! The crackle and glitter go together really well!
