Happy February, my dears!
A few weeks back I discovered that an old friend of mine had launched her own custom nail polish business. I'm super new to the world of indie polish, but after seeing her shop on Etsy and the sweet selection she's got going (and continues to add to!), I just had to get in on it.
Meet Ketlyn, founder/owner of Bitch Glitz Cosmetics.

Ket has lived all over this great, green earth - New York, Texas, Germany, Illinois - so she's experienced quite a bit of diversity in her lifetime. And I definitely think it shows in her passion to create custom polish for those of us who can't find exactly what we like in O.P.I. or Essie. Just take a peek at her Etsy shop - the options are endless and she can even mix a custom color for you!
I love nail polish, but have a hard time keeping my nails long (chronic nail-biter here!) unless I have a really good reason to grow them out. When Ketlyn offered to send me a preview of her Valentine's Day collection to review, I immediately stopped biting. No lie.
And I'm glad I did! I mean, look at these sexy things.
|Adorable packaging. :)|
|Candy Coated Innocence, Chocolate Treasure, and Strawberry Sunrise|
The day after I received them, I decided to paint my nails, even though they were still...ugly. But chocolate treasure was my favorite out of the three and I couldn't resist!
|I've always loved brown and aqua together. The aqua and gold flecks of glitter in Chocolate Treasure popped fantastically against the brown. Love!|
It held up so well too. Want to know why? Bitch Glitz's polishes are made of diamond dust, making them super strong. It's like getting a no-chip mani at home! The polish didn't start chipping off until a week later, and even then it was only because I was scrubbing pots and pans.
Something else I like about BG Cosmetics? Their polishes are 3-free, so you don't have to freak out about what's in the bottle. Safe for little hands!

|Not the greatest picture (no thanks to you, iPhone), but I LOVED the pale pink hearts in Candy Coated Innocence. The perfect flirty touch for Valentine's Day. :)|

P.P.S. Ket recently debuted eyeshadows in the shop! I'm saving up my pennies as we speak. :)
