Swatch & Review: CrowsToes Absolum - I am your Potions Master

Hey everyone!

Today I've actually got a double review of sorts - not only am I reviewing this amazing CrowsToes polish, I'm reviewing my bottle of Gelous. Gelous is a product that smooths out glitter polishes under a regular TC. CrowsToes Absolum - I am your Potions Master is inspired by Alan Rickman and 2 characters he plays - Absolum from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and Severus Snape from Harry Potter. (ps. I can't be the only person who bawled her eyes out at Snape's death, right?) Absolum is FULL of gorgeous glitters: large blue glitters, medium green, blue and silver glitters, smaller silver glitters and black bar glitters.







I used Essence Date in the Moonlight, which is a really gorgeous dusty navy blue with a lighter blue shimmer. It applied really well in 2 coats. I applied Absolum using the dabbing method, and shown is 2 coats. I did find that I had to poke around the bar glitters to make sure they weren't hanging off the edge of my nail, but other than that, application was fine. I applied 1 coat of Gelous before my regular topcoat to smooth it out. Gelous worked perfectly! My mani was smoothed out and not gritty at all. It is a little bumpier now that it has dried more, but it's still much smoother than if I had used 2 coats of my regular TC. I will definitely continue to use this to smooth my glitters!

Have you tried CrowsToes polishes? What do you use to smooth glitter? Let me know in the comments below!

    2. Cool thanks! I got the Glitter Food off Llarowe a while ago but I don't use it much. I don't know if I really care about the texture. Too lazy. But I always hear such good things about Gelous.
