Crowstoes Spamalama

Back to longer nails today for some EPIC Crowstoes Spam. So many amazing polishes here, I hope you stick around to the end for all the photos to load.

Birthday Suit - Nude shimmer polish with a color-shifting glass flecks that go from pink to copper to gold.  Such a gorgeous nude that went perfectly with my skin tone and the duchrome shimmer makes it so much more interesting. This is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.






Green Thumb of Doom - bright, but light green with gold glass fleck shimmer. Green and Gold in a bottle together, two of my favourite polish colors melded into one! This is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.





L'il Miss Cyanide - medium violet purple shimmer polish with a color-shifting shimmer that goes from lavender to green to yellow gold.  The duochrome finish to this one is very obvious and the shifting colours are so complementary.  There are some very light brush strokes noticeable because of the rich shimmer, but it is in no way frosty. This is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.






L'il Miss Sunshine - This one feels like the chunky sister to L'il Miss Cyanide, but other than the similar purple base, they are completely different. Lil' Miss Sunshine is a purple shimmer polish with color-shifting glass flecks that shift from silver to purple to green to blue. This looks amazing on the nail. This is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.





Milquetoast - A white-based glitter polish with various sizes of metallic copper hex pieces and holographic copper micro-glitter.  I'm used to my Crowstoes glitters to being very thick, chock full of glitters and needing some skill to apply.  Not this one.  Formula is perfect and smooth, the glitters spread easily and evenly and the milky base colour is just the right tint to achieve opacity whist showing the glitters through. It's one of those 'jelly sandwich in a bottle' polishes.





Season of the Witch - Oh my, this one blew my socks off when I put it on.  Actually, I wasn't wearing socks at the time, but I tell you I was so memorized by this when I put it on.  Season of the Witch has a black base with green glass flecks that shift from green to purple/fuchsia. The final look is like a polish that is layered over black, except because it's actually a blackened jelly base, this has more depth.  The colour shift is very obvious.  This was three thin coats with Seche Vite top coat.






Tequila Sunrise - A hot pink shimmer polish with color-shifting shimmer that goes from pink to green to gold.  Three coats with Seche Vite top coat.





Toxic Buttercup - A yellow shimmer polish with color-shifting shimmer that goes from yellow to pink. I wanted to enjoy the full buttery colour of this one, so I wore it on its own.  It built to a near opaque finish with three coats and was an easy yellow to both apply and wear.  This is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.

 




I hope you enjoyed that Crowstoes spam as much as I did.

Crowstoes are available in the USA from Llarowe.  They are also available in Australia from Femme Fatale Cosmetics and Shoppe Electicco in Singapore.
