Indie: CrowsToes the Pleiades Collection swatches

Disclosure: The following polishes were provided to me for swatching/review purposes.

Crowstoes sent me her Pleiades Collection a few weeks ago, but have been pretty busy at work recently, so apologies for posting this so late!

I am not the best at capturing multichrome polishes, but I tried to capture a couple pics of each under my desk lamp, since I normally photograph with a big diffused flash, which tends to wash out most multichrome polishes :( I think I did manage to capture some of the extra sparkle that is in these polishes, though! These are quite complex!

Formula is great on all of these. Some are a more opaque than others, but I think all can be worn with 2-3 coats on their own, or 1 coat layered over a coordinating base. Hopefully it's not too late for you to get these if you want them :S

Here are the direct links to the Crowstoes at Llarowe and OverallBeauty:

And if you are having a hard time distinguishing these from one another, I tried to group them together and compare them on the same hand:

  1. It's really hard to pick a favourite but I think Celaeno is gorgeous!

  2. I bought Maia, Asterope, Merope and Taygete, and I simply cannot say how mush I am looking forward to get my hands of them. Your swaches look lovely, all though I actually prefer them (as far as I have seen) over black.

  3. All absolutely stunning but I'd say my favourite out of the bunch is maia, taygete, alcyone and electra.
