First up is CrowsToes Green Thumb of Doom, a bright, springtime green that's bursting with duochrome, micro-flakie goodness. These lemon-lime, shimmering flakes are suspended in a jellyish base that I've seen build to opacity in around 3 coats, but with my stubborn VNL, I layered two over Essie Mojito Madness and then sat back and goggled at the fabulousness.
This is such a great shade of green--a little bold but still soft and refreshing--perfect for a spring/summer polish! The way the light practically dances off these shimmering particles, they could easily be glassfleck, but sure enough, they're the tiniest flakies I've ever seen, shifting from lemon yellow to lime green, even hinting at an icy blue at extreme angles. I definitely recommend this polish if you have any fondness for greens, shimmers, duos, flakies, glassfleck, springtime, or things that are awesome.
Next up is CrowsToes Season of the Witch. It's also loaded with color-shifting micro-flakes, this time flashing from bright green to vibrant violet (even throwing in a little teal at some angles). Season of the Witch will build to opacity on its own, but I'm wearing two coats here over Revlon Stiletto.
That shift is not shy in the slightest! I just love seeing a bold choice like this in a spring collection too. It may be dark, but there's nothing drab about it!
I'd meant to have this post up several days ago but decided at the last minute to re-swatch this one because I wasn't sure my first pictures really did it justice. I could
I have two more polishes to post from Spring THIS!, as well as a few others Lauri was sweet enough to send me, and my fingers are crossed SO HARD right now...like I did last summer, in a few days I'm heading to the States for about a month, and I have about 14 thousand things on my to-do list between now and then, including so. many. nail posts. Please wish me luck!!
