CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels swatch + review [September Polish Pickup Pack]

Polishes used:

CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels for September Polish Pickup Pack, 3 coats plus top coat. I would say this is a scattered holographic red nail polish with gold glow and purple sparks (shut it, I’m having trouble thinking!).

This applied evenly, with a jelly-like formula. No trouble with staining my nails or my cuticles. I thought this might dry with a bit of texture even with top coat, but it did not.

This polish is based on the book/movie Christine by Stephen King, specifically the actual paint color of Christine! First, I gotta say I’m a huge SK fan so I was stoked to see this polish in the September “horror movie” themed Polish Pickup Pack. I’m a huge proponent of reading the books before watching the movies, and I probably read this book first in high school. Shortly after, I watched the movie. Now it isn’t my favorite Stephen King based movie but the book definitely is. Stephen King has a way of writing that you can just feel the dread creeping up on you. To this day, I still see faces in the grill of cars (older cars especially) and it freaks me out!

September Polish Pickup Pack is open this coming weekend, September 7 through 10. There are many beautiful polishes going to be available and I hope you put this one on your wish list! This will be $12 and will have no cap.

Update, per Madame Crow:
My Sincere Apologies to any that were offended by her given name…I totally spaced on this one… Fear Not! Your bottle of B.O.W. will ship with BOTH labels (just like we did with the power stone & the manslut)
The “G” Rated Version will read: “B!#ch On Wheels”
The “R” Rated version shown above will be enclosed with each polish. 🙂

Side note: I was hoping to do nail art with this polish but as of yet that hasn’t happened. I’ll have more in a post tomorrow but I’ve been really struggling lately and so haven’t put together nail art.
