CrowsToes Green Thumb of Doom

I love the name of this polish. My husband loves to garden but I tend to kill every plant I touch. CrowsToes Green Thumb of Doom is another beauty from the springTHIS 2013 collection. It's the grassy green version of Tequila Sunrise. It has a golden shimmer as well but the particles are larger than they are in Tequila Sunrise. It's formula is a little on the thin and sheer side but it applies smoothly and is opaque with three coats. I was going to use Zoya Josie as my base color but decided to wear it on it's own. I used three coats and one coat of Seche Vite top coat. 





I have a thing for green polish so this is one of my favorite CrowsToes. What do you think about it?

CrowsToes Tequila Sunrise

I'm back and I have a lot of great stuff to show you this week. I have two more polishes from CrowsToes to show you after this. They're both from the springTHIS 2013 Collection. Alright, let's get right to it, here is CrowsToes Tequila Sunrise. 


I wasn't sure if this polish would be for me. I've been getting more used to pink polish and am starting to even like it. I know. This is more of a coral pink with an incredibly strong gold shimmer. I wore this for so long I had to add another coat to cover up the tip wear. I believe I had it on for around four days before I had any tip wear and it was minimal. 

I wore Zoya Micky as a base coat and three coats of Tequila Sunrise. I applied the third coat to cover up the tip wear, two is all you need. The formula is on the thin side but applies smoothly. It's a bit sheer which is why I wore a base coat color. You can build it up to opacity with three or four coats. 




The gold shimmer is stronger than my pictures show. It looks like it glows and is absolutely stunning.

What do you think?

CrowsToes Season of the Witch

Hello! I'm back with another amazing polish from CrowsToes. I'm going to do the rest of my CrowsToes one at a time since I don't have anymore full collections. Today I have Season of the Witch which (ha!) comes from the Spring THIS collection. It's a deepened emerald polish in a black base. The green particles (flakes) shift from green to purple/fuchsia.

 I wore two coats of Season of the Witch on top of Cult Nails Nevermore (black creme) with Seche Vite as my top coat. The formula was great. It flowed smoothly from the brush and applied without issue. I'll let the pictures do the talking now. 





Ok, I'm a little embarrassed by this picture. I had a hard time capturing the color shift and this was the best of the bunch. The duochrome effect is truly fantastic, I just failed at getting a beautiful picture of it.

CrowsToes The Pleiades Collection Part 2

Welcome back to Part to of The Pleiades Collection by the fabulous CrowsToes! I have four more amazing polishes to show you today. There are a lot of pictures so I'm going to just jump right to it. If you'd like to check out Part 1 of the collection, click here

Each picture shows two coats of the CrowsToes polish on top of one coat of Cult Nails Nevermore which is a plain black creme. I used one coat of Seche Vite for my top coat. The formulas were very consistent throughout the collection. So I'll just describe that here. The consistency was just right, not too thin or thick. I didn't have any trouble with flooding my cuticles, dragging, bald spots, etc. Each polish dried quickly and was very easy to remove. 

All of the polishes in this collection are duochromes; some have a stronger color shift than others. I'll let you know how strong the color shift was for each polish. This is a very picture heavy post so get comfortable and enjoy!

Alcyone is a blurple (blue/purple) polish with a pinkish/reddish purple color shift. How's that for a description? ;) The duochrome effect is pretty strong and is even visible indoors.

Merope is my favorite from the entire collection and has a very strong color shift. It's a deepened blue green with a purple color shift that looks almost pink in some lights. The color shift was very visible indoors and absolutely stunning outside.

What do you think of The Pleiades Collection, which polishes are your favorites? I'm a sucker for duochrome and multichrome polishes so it's no surprise that I love this collection. I'll be back with polishes from the CrowsToes Spring This 2013 Collection.

CrowsToes The Pleiades Collection Part 1

I am so excited to show you part one of The Pleiades Collection by CrowsToes. I have four to show you today and am working on the rest from this collection (and from other CrowsToes collections) to show you during the week. 

All swatches are two coats of the CrowsToes polish on top of one coat of Cult Nails Nevermore (black creme) with one coat of SecheVite top coat. The formula was the same with each polish so I'll just get that out of the way first. The formula is very easy to apply, not too thin or thick. No complaints! The brush was good, I had no problems using it. 

Each polish was opaque on it's own in two coats. I chose to swatch over black because I thought it gave them more depth. 

If you'd like to learn more about the inspiration behind this collection (The Pleiades), you can read about that, here

Each polish has a duochrome (maybe even multichrome) effect, some stronger than others. They are all extremely shimmery and drop dead gorgeous. They are beautiful both indoors and under the sunshine. I highly recommend them! Alright, let's get to the good stuff! 

CrowsToes Asterope
