Untried C: Crowstoes Cheshire - Swatches & Review

Today's Untried is the letter C - Crowstoes Cheshire. This one is basically the perfect definition of a glitter bomb. It's a lot of fun, with a mix of different shades and sizes of purple hexes, some gold and holo hexes and the occasional oversized magenta hex. It's like a lucky dip!

Cheshire is obviously based on the cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland. It's pretty much an exact match, don't you think?

I tried to build it to opacity using 3 coats on its own, but it's definitely a top coat. It was thick and gloopy, making it very difficult to build up. Even after 3 coats there were still bald spots. I vaguely recall getting a note with one of my past Crowstoes orders saying that they are intentionally thick, so you can thin them to your liking, so I may need to do that before the next time I use it (make sure you always use thinner, not acetone, to thin your polishes!).

So here are a couple of layering combos. These are all one dabbled coat over the base colour.

Base: Butter London Marrow
Base: OPI Do You Lilac It
Base: Picture Polish Tiffany
Crowstoes are now available for Australian customers at Femme Fatale Cosmetics! Like their facebook and subscribe to their newsletter to receive restock updates. You can also find them at Llarowe. Weirdly enough, they are actually cheaper from Femme Fatale, and with cheaper and faster postage, it's a no-brainer to buy them from there.


  1. Love it over BL Marrow! I ordered this one recently, can't wait to get it :)
