CrowsToes Frogs' Breath

I spent months oohing and ahhing and totally fangirling over swatches of CrowsToes polishes before I finally placed my first order through Llarowe, for Absolum and Frogs' Breath. When they showed up I gave myself this pep talk about not setting my expectations too high, telling myself I might have to wait until they were applied and in the sunlight or my light box before I really saw the same sparkle and brilliance I'd seen online. Then I opened the package...Y'all, I squeaked. Long and loud. I fully assume that dogs on the other side of the harbour were whipping their heads around all, "What was THAT?!"

I decided to wear Frogs' Breath first, and I do not have the words for how much I love this polish. Seriously, words fail me. But I'll try to come up with a few anyway...

This is two coats (one regular, one dabbed) of CrowsToes Frogs' Breath over OPI Don't Talk Bach to Me. I chose this mustard-lime shade, hoping it would compliment both the green and the gold in Frogs' Breath while still offering some contrast, and I think it works. I never know if I'm choosing the right undies to show off a glitter at its best, and there is so much best to show off with this one! That sparkle I was hoping to see? In spades. Giant, heaping spades of sparkle and colour and holographic brilliance.

I feel like there's so much more I should be saying about all this vibrant awesomeness...hopefully I've managed to convey my key points, which are:
  1. I am officially smitten with CrowsToes polish.
  2. I have been literally stunned by this gorgeous, gorgeous glitter.

I am so excited to try Absolum now, just as soon as I can decide what polish to pair it with, and there's an envelope on my couch that I'm waiting to open until I finish my "to do" list for the day (item: obligatory giveaway mention? check!). It should contain Maxxed Out, from the CrowsToes Christmas collection. Local canines, consider yourselves warned.

  4. I'm in love with the company name alone! And I'm kind of in love with Bunny Slope/Angel Paint! And also love this glitter! I think it'd look fantastic over a deep, bold blue~

  5. It's pretty freaking gorgeous. I'm always wondering how to choose underwear for my glitters and it's always such a wonderful feeling when it works out, right? Can't wait to see Absalom =D
