CrowsToes Bifrost and Nidavellir

purchased myself buttonGood morning my wonderful readers! I hope you are having the most gorgeous day. It’s going to be a hot one today, so I’m trying to hurry up and get errands done this morning so I don’t have to be out in the heat this afternoon. Onto the polishes!

Today I have two amazing polishes for you: CrowsToes Bifrost and Nidavellir. This is from the new 9 Realms collection, purchased from Llarowe. I saw so many swatches of the collection that I just had to pick up a few (okay, five!). I have taken so many pictures that having them all in one post would be impossible, so I’m going to split them into a few posts. Click through after the collage to see more pics & my review!

CrowsToes Bifrost is a multi-colored glitter that is opaque in 3 coats. Shown here is with 2 coats of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. I kept thinking of Mardi Gras colors when I looked at it, it seems like purple, gold, and green are the dominant colors; but there are other colors in there as well. This is such a sparkly color!

CrowsToes Nidavellir is a color-shifting polish that shifts from deep purple, to magenta, to blue, to teal. Absolutely gorgeous polish! I just moved my fingers around in the sunshine to see all the prettiness. This is 3 coats, with 1 coat of Clearly on Top.

First, a bottle shot. You can see all the colors here in the bottle:

Capturing the teal shift of this polish was near impossible, but just imagine the teal you see above all over the nail. There was also a very slight shift into a burnt reddish color, but again, impossible to capture all across the nail. You can see in a few shots above a bit of that color though.

I do really recommend that you use a peel-off base coat with either of these polishes. I used Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter-A-Peel for Bifrost, but not for Nidavellir, and the clean-up for Nidavellir was a huge pain. Glitters/shimmer was literally everywhere. :/

You can keep up with CrowsToes on their Facebook page or blog. Let me know your thoughts on these two beauties!

  1. These are beautiful!! I’ve been so tempted to pick up some polishes from this collection but Llarowe restocks are intimidating to me for some reason haha. Great swatches! (:
