Good morning all! The end of another week, phew! But I tell you what, I’m so not looking forward to next week – blergh. Too many appointments and general craziness. As long as I have time to rock an awesome mani though, I’ll be all good. 😀 Speaking of awesome manis, how about three awesome nail polishes from CrowsToes Nail Color for Hella Holo Customs month of September? Read through to the end for details on how to purchase!
First I have Your Last Breath, described as a “delicate cornflower blue base with a softened linear holo to match. There is just a touch of pale green shimmer and a bit of gold micro flake peeking out here and there.”
It has this really pretty golden shimmer that was hard to capture on camera. It honestly reminds me a bit of blue satin that’s placed in coffins. Eeep!
Formula was a bit thicker than I personally prefer, and I did experience dragging between coats. This is 3 thin coats plus top coat.
Next is Sleep With One Eye Open (man, have I had that song stuck in my head since the name was revealed!), described as “a cool leaning blackened plum, linear holo with just the right dusting of orange, gold and silver micro holo that spark with each wave of the hand!”
I adore this polish! It has this blue-black thing going on, but also kinda gray, and those orange glitters are oomph, perfection! (P.S. See that holo shimmer in the macro above? Yeah, it was seriously insane trying to get a focused shot because of the holo madness!)
Formula was perfect! I did thin first coat followed by a thicker second coat. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Last is my personal favorite, Beyond Your Fears, described as “a medium bright red/golden orange base, loaded with teal and gold micro holo and a golden orange shimmer that just pops.”
This is fall in a bottle to me. Seriously, I’d slather myself in this polish if I could. I will probably end up buying myself a second bottle, tbh. The teal glitters that I swear also look purple at certain shifts – the deep orange to red base that is a fall leaf turning colors with the golden orange shimmer. Oomph!!
Formula was thicker than I’d like, and I ended up having polish ball up on the neck while I was applying this (because this was my full mani for almost a week, y’all!). I did mention this to Lauri, the maker, who said it’s the likely the larger size glitter that’s doing that; she also let me know she’d add a bit of thinner to this and Your Last Breath. This is 3 coats plus matte top coat to smooth plus shiny top coat.
