And I want to start with a real stunner: I indulged in buying many of Crows Toes polishes of the springTHIS Collection - just look at the gorgeous Tequila Sunrise:

I applied three coats of Tequila Sunrise over Zoya Anchor Base Coat. Isn't the greenish shimmer just mesmerizing??? I applied those three coats with a featherlight hand to avoid brush strokes. The formula is great - the first coat goes on sheer and can look patchy. A second medium thick coat levels everything out. I find the consistency hard to describe - who would want to read "perfect", "applied in a breeze" etc on and on? Well, the consistency is sheer though not runny. The soft and narrow brush holds a perfect amount of polish that is acting nearly like a cream though we don't talk glue or glop here.
I like Tequila Sunrise best at three coats - max shimmer, max saturated base color ;-)!!! For those who wonder how Tequilla Sunrise looks at two coats I added a photo showing it at two coats - while the shimmer is pretty strong the pink is less saturated and intense than at three coats:
Final thoughts: I am not into pinks but Tequila Sunrise most certainly is one big exception!!! It's green shimmer makes it über-cool (yep, one of those weird, in dictionaries not really existing words, but I swear, I repeatedly read it in American VOGUE!!!). Crows Toes is in my eyes one of the coolest - or hottest - Indie Brands out there and I am so ready to see the new shades!!!!
I ordered Crows Toes Tequila Sunrise with Llarowe.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
