Elevation Polish & Girly Bits Bamboozled Collaborative Duo: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! For today, I have a new collaborative duo to share with you all. The Bamboozled Duo is a collaboration between Elevation Polish and Girly Bits, using bamboo as inspiration. I really loved seeing these two long time indie polishes brands use one inspiration idea and their final result of something both bright and bold and soft and neutral. 

The Bamboozled Duo will be released tomorrow, Tuesday, July 7th at 9 PM CST only in Elevation Polish's shop. It will also be restocked on July 22nd at 9 AM CST. The Duo will be priced at $22, plus shipping and Elevation Polish does ship internationally.

Elevation Polish Arashiyama
Two coats
Sandy nude with  medium density holographic pigment and charcoal flake shimmer
Meant to  represent bamboo in it's dry state. 
Presented in it's traditional Elevation Polish square bottle and label. 
A warm toned sand nude, this is an awesome neutral with a twist. I can see myself reaching for this when I want a palette cleanser that's more than a simple creme. The formula is great, it has a nice fluid creamy application with two coats. Compared to the Girly Bits counter-part this one has a lower density holographic flame.

Girly Bits BamBoom!
Two coats
Soft neon green base with holographic pigment and green holographic micro-glitter
Meant to represent bamboo in it's fresh and alive state.
Presented in it's traditional Girly Bits round bottle and label. 
BamBoom for real! It's a striking compliment to Arashiyama with it's higher density holo flame and holo micro-glitter. It's also something that I would easily recognize as a Girly Bits polish even without a label. With the micro-glitter, you will want to apply a generous layer of topcoat and application was easy with two coats.
