Shift Happens by Girly Bits Cosmetics 

This Polish Is 5-FREE, Vegan, And Cruelty Free. Size: 15mL / .5 Fl Oz

 

Shift Happens is a dramatic colour shifting topper in a sheer red-purple base, also known as UP, or Unicorn Pee.

This particular pigment is no longer manufactured, and is VERY scarce, and hard to find supplies of. In 2011 I bought a sizable amount of this magical pigment, and when my stock got low I pulled it from the store. I have some of my original pigment left, and I was also able to purchase some on the secondary market. This is the last of this pigment I have, and once it's gone I have no guarantees that I will be able to source (or afford!) more.

Layer Shift Happens over dark colours for the most dramatic effect, but it also looks amazing over teal, green, and red. The possibilities are endless!!

 

Please note, that Shift Happens is UP in a slightly tinted base, but the base colour does not alter the look of the polish when layered over other polishes. The tinted base is purely for the aesthetics in the bottle and does not translate to the nail. Over the years the base colour has varied somewhat from a purple-ish tint, to a more wine tint but the end result on the nail, are identical from bottle to bottle. The dry UP pigment (the most important part of this polish) has always been measured by weight and has not changed from batch to batch or bottle to bottle. The colourants used to tint the base has evolved from my original formula in the early days of Girly Bits, when I mixed each bottle individually, and literally read '2 drops of this, and 4 dollops of that' to a more precise formula that is now also measured by weight. Liquids are very difficult to measure accurately in small batches, but dry pigments are easy, so as my batches got larger, I was able to measure the liquids by weight as well. While there are a variety of base tints out there, the amount of unicorn pigment in each bottle is identical.

    Shift Happens is my absolute favorite effects top coat of all time. First off the formula is an absolute dream to work with, second it seems no matter what manicure I cover this polish with, takes on a specutacular umph factor that is just breathtaking. Although Shift Happens is just mesmerizing layered on dark blues, purples and plums, it is just as magical on earth tones and french manicures. So versatile and an absolute MUST in my collection. Pls pls pls don't ever discontinue this spectacular polish!!! One more thing to note is the amazing brush the Girly Bits bottles are outfitted with. In my opinion it is the perfect width and stiffness allowing for excellent control and precise brush strokes.

    3 cheers for Girly Bits and their top notch products!!!
