CrowsToes Nail Color Well, isn’t that just f@#ing marble-ous, upcoming polish for April Polish Pickup Pack
Morning everyone! I’m sitting here with a cup of freshly ground and brewed coffee and for the moment at least, I feel like I could conquer the world. I’m sure that feeling will go away any minute so I better get while the getting’s good. 😀
Lauri, the head crow over at CrowsToes Nail Color, sent me her polish for April’s Polish Pickup Pack. I’ve been wanting to try this tutorial for awhile, so I figured why not? I have to say, I think it came out spectacularly! I will have swatches of this polish soon, but for now remember that it will be available April 6 through the 9 only at Polish Pickup Pack, and it will be $12. Continue reading
CrowsToes Nail Color Headless Bride [gift from maker], 3 thin coats plus top coat. This was a little uneven but 3 coats evened it out. It had good glitter coverage.
Fancy Gloss Denim Daze, 2 coats plus top coat. This was almost a One-Coat Wonder, I didn’t need to top coat for it to shine.
Crystal Parade Pearl/Crystal Snowfall Mix
Sinful Colors Black on Black, 2 coats (as a base to all nails)
OPI Man of La Mancha [previously swatched]
CrowsToes Nail Color Everybody Wants to Rule the World [previously swatched]
CrowsToes Nail Color the Holographic Principle
It seems I’ve lost my notes on this polish. 😦
CrowsToes Nail Color Power Stone, 2 coats plus 2 coats of top coat. This had good consistency and formula but for extra shine, I needed 2 coats of top coat. This was from January 2018 Polish Pickup Pack.
Blackheart Beauty BH White AB Flakes, sponged on bare nail with matte top coat and 2 coats of shiny top coat. This was so thick, even sponging it on. And the flakes stick up. 😦 1/10 do not recommend.
Dreamland Lacquer Dragonberry (faded), 3 coats plus 1 coat of top coat. This is from Hella Holo Customs April 2016, about time I used it. This is the original Dragonberry that was replaced because it was a fader. It’s a lovely almost sherbet orange now.
So this is my current mani and to be honest I hated it until I added that simple stripe across my nail. How can one little change make such a huge difference? Who knows. Anyway, I couldn’t get color accuracy on the CrowsToes and I fiddled with color settings until my eyes crossed. It’s a much more vibrant purple (not blue) in real life, it freaking glows.

So remember Sweet Evil? I couldn’t stop using it in nail art! I paired it with Hellhound already and this time around I’ve paired it with Darkhearted. Don’t forget Sweet Evil will be available only February 2-5 at PolishPickup.

I tried and failed at using this nail art tutorial from kombucha_witch but I still really love how it came out! I think I pressed down too hard with the stamper onto my nail and so it didn’t transfer like it should have. Nichole from Bedlam Beauty (p.s. she has swatches of Sweet Evil up as well!) thinks it looks like a seriotype!
