A Box, Indied - Bad Catholic





The forth and last polish of the march "A Box, Indied" is Crows Toes Bad Catholic. This name really fits me, as I consider myself a "paper catholic": I'm baptized catholic, pay my church taxes to the catholic church, but I never attend service, unless it's for a wedding or funeral...




As base color I used OPI Incognito In Sausalito (San Francisco Collection), a very dark creme polish that looks like a muted navy but is, in fact, a muted teal. Incognito In Sausalito is very opaque, I used only one coat and it applied like butter.





Then I added one coat of Bad Catholic, a clear base with yellow, green and purple hexes in various sizes.




Like all Crows Toes glitter toppers, this one is a real glitter bomb. No dabbing needed, and absolutely no fishing for glitter, on the contrary, applying the glitters sparingly would prove impossible. For a smooth finish I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Rica Glossy Glam topcoat.







Then I mattified it using H&M matte topcoat.














The matte topcoat made it look like a print on paper...





Crows Toes polishes are available at Llarowe and Overall Beauty. Bad Catholic is exclusive to the march "A Box, Indied". The box is available at Llarowe as a one-time-only box or as a monthly subscription.
