CrowsToes Holiday 2012 Collection Review: Part 2


Hey little stocking stuffers, 

As promised, here's the rest of my CrowsToes holiday polish review! As I previously mentioned, CrowsToes polish can be found on Llarowe and Overall Beauty. And although many of the holiday polishes are already sold out, I hope you enjoy looking at these pretties! 

Her Goose Got Cooked






This is one coat of Her Goose Got Cooked over Sally Hansen Haute Chocolate (index and middle) and Sinful Colors Rich in Heart (ring and pinkie). I really didn't think I was going to like this one, but I'm really impressed! HGGC is made up mostly of large gold, orange, and pink hexes. I can't tell if all of the glitter is holographic, but a lot of it is and the flashes of color are truly beautiful.

Maxxed Out






Maxxed Out is a truly holo'd out glitter bomb. Gold and silver holographic hexes of various sizes, gold bars, and small silver glitter are most of what make up this polish from what I can tell. It reminds me of Darling Diva Polish Auld Lang Syne, but way chunkier. I layered this one over Essie Going Incognito (index, middle, and pinkie) and Essie She's Pampered (ring finger, obviously).

Holly and Hellfire






Holly and Hellfire was another unexpected favorite for me! I thought it was just a red and silver glitter, and maybe not much to write home about... But damn. Those big holo hexes really pack a purple punch. Just look at that first nail picture! I counted five hexes reflecting purple on my nails. Awesome. I layered this one over Orly Torrid (index, middle, and pinkie) and China Glaze Champagne Bubbles (ring finger. Thank you Lindsey!)

Making Christmas






Making Christmas. I'm fairly certain all of the glitter in this one is holographic. Small specks of red, green, and silver flashing every color of the rainbow makes for quite a spectacular holiday mani. I layered MC over Orly Torrid (red) and China Glaze Glittering Garland (green--again, thank you Lindsey!).

At the time I am writing this, Making Christmas is still available on Llarowe and Overall Beauty. GO GET IT.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this collection. Lemme try to break it down.

What I liked:

  • Great variety in color. Not just traditional "christmas-y" red and green here!
  • Beautiful blends of glitter
  • HOLO GLITTER AAAGH
  • Black jelly? Yes please.
  • Great glitter coverage with a lot of these. Making Christmas, Holly and Hellfire, and Blue Christmas could all probably be worn alone. 
What I didn't like:
  • Nothing. o:
It is important to note that, like most indie nail polish, CrowsToes is made with uncut glitter suspension base. This means that the polish is thick, but it can be thinned out to your desired consistency. Some people may not like the initial thickness of the polish, but I don't mind it at all! I chose not to thin any of my CrowsToes.

I hope y'all enjoyed these swatches! I may or may not be back tomorrow with another post. I might do some kind of Christmas mani, but I'm not sure if I'll have time to put together a post. 

Anyway....... <3
