Crowstoes polishes are all made with uncut suspension base so they do tend to run a bit thicker than normal polishes. I just added a few drops of thinner to the bottle and then the consistency was perfect. I would rather have a polish that is thicker and therefore suspends all the glitter than have a thinner polish and have all the glitter sink to the bottom.
Okay, onto the pictures!
Crowstoes Triple Black Diamond over China Glaze Want My Bawdy.
Triple Black Diamond was the one I was most excited for and it didnt disappoint! Small matte black glitters with slightly larger irridescent hexes throughout. 1 coat.
China Glaze Want My Bawdy.
This is from the China Glaze New Bohemian collection. There is a very faint purple shift at the edges of your nails when you tilt your nails. If this wasn't a part of a duochrome collection, I don't think I would have even noticed the color shift.
The color is very nice and dry time is fast. 2 coats.
Crowstoes Bunny Slope over Gosh Miss Minty.
Bunny Slope is the companion to Triple Black Diamond. It is filled with matte white glitters and irridescent hexes. This was a surprise favorite! I put it in my cart at the last minute and I'm so glad I did. It has a very soft, subtle look to it. 1 coat.
Gosh Miss Minty.
A true mint green. Very nice! I did 3 coats but if I would have thinned it a bit before I used it then I would have been good with 2 coats.
Crowstoes Cheshire over Max Factor Fantasy Fire.
Named after the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland, this polish is filled with purple, yellow, and holographic hexes. This polish is fantastic. I love the large purple hexes. This polish is going to be discontinued soon so if you don't have it yet, hurry up and buy it before it's gone for good! 2 coats.
Max Factor Fantasy Fire.
This polish is only available in the UK but if you have someone who can get you a bottle, then I think it's more than worth it. The bottle is tiny but the polish is absolutely gorgeous! Normally I would layer this over another polish but I wanted to see how many coats it took to become opaque on it's own. 3 coats.
