CrowsToes Nail Color Pearls of Wisdom galaxy nail art

Press Sample buttonAhoy and happy Monday to you! (Ahoy? Who knows, my brain is weird sometimes a lot.) Today I have a galaxy manicure that I created with the Pearls of Wisdom nail polish collection from CrowsToes Nail Color. This was so fun to create and happened totally by accident!

So I started off with 1 coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather. (Which I don’t think I’ve ever featured by itself here on the blog but it’s just a basic black polish.) Using all the polishes in the Pearls of Wisdom collection (save one – wait for it!), I sponged them randomly over each nail. Then I sat back and went, “Wow, that looks like galaxy nails!” 😀 Continue reading

CrowsToes Nail Color Pearls of Wisdom nail polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonYo ho ye land lubbers! I think I have pirate speak on the brain because of the name of this nail polish collection from CrowsToes Nail Color: the Pearls of Wisdom. Orrrr….I could just be weird. Yeah, that’s probably it. 😉 Anyway, this collection is a 6 piece collection with a bonus 7th polish when you buy the whole shebang.  It includes: Triple-Double Standard, 3 Sides to Every Story, Suck It Up Buttercup, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, Glass House?…drop the rock, Projection Deflection & Misdirection; the bonus polish is called The Next time You think you’re perfect Try Walking on water (TNTYTYPTWOW). Each of these polishes (other than the bonus) are in a pearlescent base that has shiftiness and added glitter.

For my full 4-finger swatches, I’m showing each polish over black (sponged & painted – you’ll see). You’ll also get to see a macro collage of each polish by itself, over black, and over white. Overall, the formula on them was a little hard to get even over another color (hence why I sponged over black), but Madame Crow has tweaked the polishes’ formula to make sure they are at their absolute best!

Bad Bitch Polish water spout nail art

Press Sample buttonHello everyone! Back when I reviewed the Love Your Planet nail polish trio from Bad Bitch Polish, I was itching to do something fun with Poseidon. I had bought some nail vinyls from Polished Vino and set to work with Poseidon [press sample] and Blue Steel [press sample], and some nail gems from Crystal Parade.

For the nail art in this blog post, you’ll need: a sandwich baggie or plastic wrap, a toothpick or bobby pin (lol on finding a bobby pin in my house though), and a makeup sponge.
