Halloween Trio 2015

Howdy everyone - I'm back with (yay) more Halloween polishes for you! This is the Crowstoes Halloween Trio for 2015.

Catch me after the jump for full swatches and review but first, as usual, I had a bit of fun playing with them first.  Just my quick toothpick marble using all three...

First up, my favorite and the one I had to take the most photos of, for 3 reasons. It's complex in that it has a bit of a hard-to-capture color-shift,  I was able to catch just a few seconds of sun for this one, unlike the other two and because I had to matte it. Had to.

Don't Piss Off the Pumpkins - this one is basically orange, but it shifts from orange to blood orange to yellow orange to red orange and I'm not sure if it's the polish itself, the flakes or both that are doing the shifting. It's more noticeable than I was able to capture. I used 2 coats with one coat of top coat for the photos.


Polyester Chemist - this one was inspired by Beetlejuice! It is a green-leaning teal that has a bit of a doily appearance. I am SO sorry I wasn't able to wait until next Thursday for the sun to re-appear because this one has some great sparkle. I used 2 coats and one coat of top coat. I have a pretty prominent nail line so I probably should have gone with 3 light coats. Most will be happy with 2 though.


Phantasm - this one is a blurple linear holograph. It's actually just a smudge more purple-leaning than my photos were able to show but in my opinion this is a mostly blue polish. The 2nd photo is the most color-accurate. Two coats with one coat of top coat.

And in the shade...


What did you think? Great shades for Halloween and definitely wearable all year! Don't Piss Off the Pumpkins is my favorite.

Crowstoes Nail Color polishes are available at her Big Cartel Shop here and also at Harlow & Co and Color4Nails. The Halloween Trio will launch on FRIDAY, October 30th on the Crowstoes Big Cartel Site. Stay tuned to the Crowstoes Facebook page for launch time and more details.

  1. Don't piss off the pumpkins is the most complex orange that I've ever seen! I love what I think are the pink flakes in this.
