Crows Toes 9 Realms Collection

Good morning! I have a major post for you guys today. MAJOR. This post of 32, yes, 32! photos is an introduction of Crows Toes 9 Realms Collection. I thought about breaking it up but I wanted you to get the full impact of seeing this cohesive and gorgeous collection all at once. The 9 Realms collection was inspired by Norse Mythology and you can really see the thought and creativeness that went into the colors and inspiration. These polishes will also be released with a wider style brush, which I loved. It's just wide enough to get more coverage without being too wide. Application wise, these are pretty darn perfect. I had absolutely no issues with polish formula, most of them are worn without layering just with multiple coats to achieve opacity. Okay enough talking, on to the photos....

Crows Toes Alfheim 
Three coats
Pale green holo with slight blue shimmer.
Mmmm holo, love that holo flame.

Crows Toes Asgard
Three coats
Light blue holo with gold micro-shimmer.
This blue is light but bright and the gold is a nice touch.

Crows Toes Midgard 
Three coats
Pale taupe holo with slight green flash shimmer.
The concept of a taupe holo at first comes across as ho hum but this is definitely not ho hum. 
It's got this flash of green that is so stunning in real life. 

Crows Toes Svartalfheim 
Three coats
Navy jelly base with various gunmetal, silver, and cobalt glitter.
Oooooh dark but also striking. Lots of depth with the different sizes of glitter in the blue jelly base.

Crows Toes Niflheim
Three coats
Black jelly base with deep purple and gunmetal micro-shimmer.
Another dark and lovely polish this one with sparks of purple. 

Crows Toes Bifrost 
Three coats
Rainbow of micro-glitter in a clear base. 
YES, this is a must have. It's absolutely packed with glitter and could be layered but the is better worn by itself. This is similar to OPI Mad as a Hatter but more warm and a whole lot better! 

Crows Toes Helheim
Three coats
Black jelly base with warm copper and violet flakes.
So effing pretty. I love that with such a dark base, you don't lose the flakes at all. 

Crows Toes Jotunheim 
Three coats
Grape jelly base with holo gold and green/gold color shifting glitter. 
Ohhhh yeah, another must have. So so sparkly. 

Crows Toes Huginn & Muninn
Blue jelly base with purple to green shift.
Holy shit this is a stunning polish. 
You can layer (and I did) but it's better off being worn by itself. 
You will have to apply multiple layers (I applied 3 coats) but the effect is worth it. 

Crows Toes Huginn & Muninn
Layered over American Apparel Hassid
And this is the look over black. The color shift is still visible but I like it worn solo with it's blue base.

Crows Toes Vanaheim
Layered over American Apparel Hassid
Gold to green shifting base with gold to green/blue color shifting glitter
The first of 3 high impact color shifting in color shifting polishes. 
For the following three, I applied one coat of polish over black. 
You wear them solo and you will get just as solid of a color shift but I liked how they looked over black. It just deepened the base color a bit. 

 Crows Toes Nidavellir
Layered over American Apparel Hassid
Blue to purple shifting base with blue to purple color shifting glitter
Ugh so. much. pretty. going. on. 
Again, it can be worn by itself with three coats but this is one coat over black.

Crows Toes Muspelheim
Layered over American Apparel Hassid
Purple to red to orange shifting base with gold to orange/red color shifting glitter.
Probably my favorite of the entire collection. It's just so.....well, look at it! 

Whew! That was a pic heavy post. I hope you guys are as excited as I am to see this release.
