Girly Bits Hoop! There It Is! Collection - Swatches and Review

*These products are Cruelty Free 

Hi everyone! I'm back briefly with a new neon collection from Girly Bits called Hoop! There It Is!

Again I must continue to apologize for the state of my cuticles, but this time it's not the only thing for which I must be sorry. As I've mentioned before, I like polish and I do my best to show the polishes accurately but I am most definitely no photographer. Neons are just plain hard to capture anyway but for me, the hardest! So I have only one photo of most of this time and a few of them are cell photos.

The good news? They are STUNNING and they marble beautifully!

Girly Bits
Hoop! There It Is! Collection

Continued after the jump...

All 10 of the neons had the same formula and application for me. I used 2 coats of each of them except It's Hoop To Be Square and I used 3 light coats of that one. These are swatched alone and not over white. They are creamy and opaque and I had no issues with dragging or balding at all, which I was worried about based on the older neons I'd used.

Don't Paddle Break a Nail - this one is a bright neon magenta pink.


Get Indie Flow - this one is a neon purple.


Hip Hoop Hooray! - this one is a neon violet purple that I could only get with a cell photo.


Hoop There It Is - this one is a neon orange-red.


Hooperchondriac - this one is a a neon grass green that is a smidge darker than my photo.


I've Got High Hoops - this one is a neon blue.


It's Hoop to be Square - this one is a neon pistachio green.


These Hips Don't Lie - this one is a neon highlighter yellow.


Thump Your Melons - this one is a neon orange-leaning coral.


You're My Hooper Hero - this one is a neon sort of tutti fruity melon shade.


And because it's hard to tell how the greens and yellow compare, I've swatched them on the same hand for you...


And finally, the only topper in the bunch, swatched (1 coat) over the green/yellow "skittles" mani.

You Spin Me Round - this one is a clear-based holo glitter top coat.


What do you think? Favorites? Personally, I was blown away by Hoop There It Is, which I didn't really expect. Other favorites are Thump Your Melons, You're My Hooper Hero and, most obviously, Hip Hop Hooray because that's "my" color.
