CrowsToes - Shoot the Butterfly (and the Koi Fish, too!)

I'm back today with another review of an amazing CrowsToes polish - Shoot the Butterfly

CrowsToes - Shoot the Butterfly

Sinful Colors - Black on Black
Color Club - Wham! Pow!
Konad - Special White
Stamping Plate - A48

Shoot the Butterfly Macro - How gorgeous a jelly has there ever been?! A beautiful concoction of a black jelly and glitters in orange and white - the definition of a Monarch Butterfly morphed into a nail lacquer.

Bottle Shot of Shoot the Butterfly. The more I photograph these CrowsToes bottles, the more I become mildly obsessed with how awesome they are!

Shoot the Butterfly on the nail. Shown here at 1 coat over 1 coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black. I will get into more detail on the accent nail in a moment.

I have seen Shoot the Butterfly on its own and it layers up nicely at 2-3 coats. I wanted a much blacker appearance for this mani though, so I opted to apply it over a black base.

The glitters and formula on this polish were perfection - no digging or sinking, nothing gritty nor was it too thick or too thin - it was a dream. Shown here with 1 coat of NYC Grand Central topcoat.

For the accent I used my A48 plate to create a nail decal in black then I painted in Koi fish colors in white and orange and applied the decal over Shoot the Butterfly. Here it's shown with one coat of MASH Nails Matte topcoat.

And here is an on the nail matte macro version. I love those funky tie dyed looking glitters near the tip!!

Again - for my 2nd review of the CrowsToes line I am beholden to it's glory. I honestly couldn't find a bad thing to say about this polish!
