Morning everyone! I hope you are ready for the weekend. Is anyone attending any Halloween parties or Trunk or Treats with their kids? I’ll be doing neither because basically I am an un-fun person nowadays. >.< But something that always perks me up is nail polish and of course, nail polish in interesting colors from my favorite makers. Oh look! CrowsToes Nail Color has a new polish coming out for November’s Polish Pickup. 🙂 This is inspired by the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:
Read on for more about this polish and my experience with it.
Okay, I’ll be up front. I’ve never read the book Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, nor watched the movie (movies? isn’t there more than one?). I know, I know. I’m weird (shocker, right?) in that the more people love something and recommend it, the more I resist whatever it is that they love (see: Game of Thrones).
But I can tell you about polish, especially pretty dazzling polishes that CrowsToes. Now I like a lot of Madame Crow’s polishes. I mean, I don’t have every polish she’s ever made, but for the love I paid for a polish that was only available overseas – An Edgy Ocean Dream (I think the only time I have ever done that).
Anyway, Not Without my Wonderful Towel has a taupe base with a very strong purple shimmer, blue sparkly bits and purple flakes (bits? pieces? unsure). It seems like there is a very scattered holographic effect as well. At the edges of my nails, I could see a bit of burnt orange but it was super camera shy.
No complaints about formula at all. I used 2 coats plus top coat as it dries a bit dull.
I’ll be honest, in the bottle, I was a bit unsure about this but once it was on, I was all *hubba hubba* ❤ I mean, the sparkle and detail on this was insane.
So how can you get this beauty? Starting November 3 11am EST through November 6 midnight EST, you can purchase this polish at Polish Pickup. This is the only time this polish (and many other beauties) will be available. You should totally join the Facebook group (if you haven’t already) to stay in the loop of all the goings-on. Krystal of Queen of Nails 83 will have swatches of all the polishes as well. 🙂 (Here’s her instagram if you prefer that platform.)
Last thing – you’re allowed to yell at me if you wish about never reading the book or seeing the film. 😛
