Sorry I have not posted in a while. I had a polish drought, but recently the glitter gods have blessed me and I am flush with indies to swatch again XD So just a fair warning that the next 3 or 4 or 5... posts are going to be indie spam posts!
Disclosure: the following polishes were gifted to me by the creator!
I absolutely died when I saw Em's swatches of Crowstoes Halloween 2012 polishes and my drooling apparently made Lauri, the mastermind behind Crowtoes, want to RAOK me the collection! WOOHOO! Drooling works, guys!
These are my first Crowstoes, and they are really remarkable! I think my 2 stand out faves are Bone Daddy and Frogs' Breath. Voodoo is also amazingly versatile. I love Tangled Web too. Ok they are all pretty flipping cool.
In terms of formula, these are on the thicker side, but you can thin to your preference with clear polish (not WnW, though! apparently it reacts poorly with Crowstoes polishes!) or polish thinner. Better thick than sinkin' glitter, I always say *chews on some straw*.
I did 1-2ish coats over the base colour depending on the glitters that came out. I topped with SV to get a smooth finish.
Where to buy:
Llarowe for $13 each
Overall Beauty for $12 each.
Bone Daddy - those yellowish glitters are disco glitters, so they don't look yellow IRL (they look like the blue iridescent ones). Disco glitters just cause cameras to have the crazies ><
