CrowsToes Orion from The Pleiades Collection

Oh duochromes and multichromes.. be still my heart.

CrowsToes is one of my favorite indie brands since the day I fell in love with Triple Black Diamond and when I saw the announcement of The Pleiades Collection – a collection of the eight multichrome shimmers Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno, Electra, Maia, Merope, Orion and Taygete – my knees went a little weak and I knew I had to order at least a few of them.
Luckily I could purchase Asterope, Maia, Merope and Orion of The Pleiades Collection the second the stock went live on llarowe. :)

As a green nail polish admirer addict I just had to wear the olive/green/teal/blue (and in some lightings even purple) multichrome Orion first.

In most lighting you will only notice the olive green/green and teal part of the multichrome finish which makes CrowsToes Orion look more like a duochrome. However in some angles – if the light hits the nail with a very flat angle – you can see the blue or even purple shimmer of Orion.

The green of CrowsToes Orion from The Pleiades Collection isn’t very saturated. It is more like a murky, toned down lighter forest green or moss green.

In indirect lighting

The shimmer flecks of CrowsToes Orion are so pretty. They make Orion especially in sunlight almost look like a borderline foil nail polish. In indirect and direct lighting from my halogen lamps Orion is a sparkle-fest as well. ♥

POST FAQ
Availability CrowsToes nail polishes
You can purchase CrowsToes nail polishes on llarowe.com, overallbeauty.com and Shoppe Eclecticco (Asian based). Please note that because CrowsToes is an indie brand with handmade nail polishes stock is little and not always available. Llarowe ships international (Italy excluded) and Overall Beauty also ships international. The countries Overall Beauty ships to can be found here.
CrowsToes also has a shop on bigcartel but it is currently closed. CrowsToes only ships within the US as far as I know.
Coats used
CrowsToes – Orion: three
Base coat and top coat
Base coat: OPI – Nail Envy Matte
Top Coat: Essence – Better Than Gel Nails top sealer

The application of CrowsToes Orion from The Pleiades Collection was good. I needed three coats for full opacity and I think next time I will wear it over a black base to see how it looks then. :)

Do you have a soft spot for duochromes and multichromes too and have you purchased some of The Pleiades Collection as well?

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
