Crows Toes Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't + 3 Collection plus Huginn & Muninn and Indian Summer: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello all! Today's post is one truly epic showcase of Crows Toes' newest collection. The Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't + 3 Collection is a sixteen polish set, broken down into sets of four. 

How this will work is: there are four new multi-chrome Crows Toes polishes and then three alternate finishes of those polishes. So if you love a pure multi-chrome, you will love the Original finishes. If you want a little bit of scattered holo, then the Sparked finish is for you. Linear holo is more your jam? Linear Holo finish is what you may want. And then the final version is the Bleached Holo, which is a higher density linear holo. Also releasing will be Sparked, Linear Holo, and Bleached Holo versions of two Crows Toes classics, Huginn & Muninn and Indian Summer, so I have those photos toward the bottom as well. 

This is a photo heavy post and I don't want to distract too much from the pretty so I will include my formula notes here at the top. Each polish applied easily and without issue. The Original and Sparked finishes required a minimum of three coats for opacity and if you preferred to apply less coats, you could layer over your favorite one coat black polish but I don't mind building up to opacity. The Linear Holo and Bleached Holo versions are slightly thicker and when I say thicker, I don't mean troublesome, like at all, just a more opaque formula, only two coats for opacity for those finishes. I loved each and every version but if I had to pick favorites, I do lean a bit more toward the Original and Sparked versions, that's just my personal preference.

The Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't + 3 Collection is now be available through Monday January 30th (til 8 pm EST) via a pre-order window. Turnaround time will 7-14 days.

If you miss this debut launch though, no worries! The Crows Toes shop will reopen soon and none of these are limited edition polishes. If you want them alllll but can't get them in one fell swoop, you will be able to buy more in the future. As for pricing, the Original and Sparked finishes will be $12 each and the Linear Holo and Bleached Holo finishes will be $13 each. And of course, everything can be purchased in the Crows Toes shop
