Oh boy! Have I got a post for you today! I hope you are ready for the blinding beauty I’ve got coming your way because these CrowsToes Nail Color polishes for Christmas *ahem* CrowsMas 2016 are pretty freaking amazing. This is a small, 4-piece collection, but it packs a lot of punch. Instant XMAS (just add nails), Holiday Nuts, …I Need a Tinselectomy, and Sideswiped are serious must-haves for any polish collector. Enough chatter, because I have a serious amount of photos today for you!
Instant Xmas (just add nails) is a clear based iridescent color shifting glitter topper with scattered holographic glitter. I’ve used it 3 sponged on coats by itself plus matte top coat [not shown], then shiny top coat. This has a nice consistency and the glitter spreads easily.
This is 1 coat plus top coat over CrowsToes Sideswiped.
This is 1 coat plus top coat over CrowsToes Huginn & Muninn.
Holiday Nuts is also a clear based glitter topper with gold, brown, green iridescent glitter, and color shifting micro glitters. I’ve used 3 coats plus matte top coat [not shown] plus shiny top coat. This has a nice consistency as well, but maybe there is a bit too much clear base for me?
This is 1 coat plus top coat over CrowsToes …I Need A Tinselectomy.
This is 1 coat plus top coat over CrowsToes Always [press sample, previously swatched].
…I Need a Tinselectomy is a turquoise multi chrome polish with sparks of red. It shifts from a brighter glowy green to a sky blue. This is a little sheer, and dries quickly and matte. It can be a little patchy, so be sure not to go back over it while it’s wet.
This is 3 coats and no top coat. If you have shorter nails, or use thicker coats, you could get away with 2 coats, I bet.
Sideswiped is a lavender multi chrome polish that glows from within! I see it shift from brighter lilac to purple to a glowing blue to a purple-grey. This formula is similar to I Need a Tinselectomy.
This is 3 coats and no top coat.
Honestly, I adore this whole collection but my favorite is Instant XMAS (just add nails). I’ve already worn it again in another mani! It just is so shifty and purty! The CrowsToes Nail Color shop is now open for pre-orders every weekend from Friday 8am EST to Sunday 8pm EST. All four of these colors will be available through the end of the month, but …I Need a Tinselectomy and Holiday Nuts will then be retired until next Christmas. Instant XMAS and Sideswiped will remain core colors.
Please give me a holler in the comments and let me know which one (or which combo) you are loving the most!
