Finally I can release this post!

About a week ago these 9 gorgeous polishes landed in my lap, and I had to keep quiet about them!  Now, I can show you all my swatches of the new CrowsToes One Mad, Crazy Summer Collection!  If you follow CrowsToes on Facebook you might have seen her releasing swatches of the collection (if you don’t follow her already, click the link and do so!)

My Favorite Amazon:

My Favorite Amazon over Ruby Wing Crowd Surf

My Favorite Amazon is a mix of yellow, blue, red, and white glitter in hexes and squares, as well as white star glitter all in a clear base!  I used 1 coat of My Favorite Amazon over Ruby Wings Crowd Surf!  This is an amazing glitter bomb!

My favorite glitter of the collection!  Chess… You Dog! is a clear base with royal blue, blue and turquoise round and hex glitters as well as a few black diamond shaped glitters mixed in.  I used 1 coat of Chess…You Dog! over Zoya Raven!  Love the shades of blue against a black background!
