CrowsToes Indian Summer


Hi guys! Today I have CrowsToes Indian Summer for you! If you remember from my swatches of the Better Late Than Never Fall Collection from CrowsToes my original bottle of Indian Summer committed suicide (RIP) so I couldn't swatch it in that post. Well...Lauri, the fabulous lady behind CrowsToes, sent me a new bottle of Indian Summer after she saw my post so today I have it for you! Yay! Thank you so much Lauri!

Indian Summer is a gorgeous purple/blue/magenta multichrome. This also flashes a bit of gold at extreme angles. I can see why everyone was losing their mind over this polish. I'm also happy that in addition to looking good all over my desk (where it still is because I don't want to clean it up) it looks all kinds of gorgeous on the nail. This is one of those polishes that's dangerous to wear while driving because you might catch a glimpse of the shift and feel the need to stare at your nails instead of paying attention to the road.

The formula was good, it was a little tricky on the first coat but it was full opaque and perfect with the second coat. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

  1. This is why I don't do indie polishes: The minute a shade gets posted on a major nail blog, BOOM!--out of stock everywhere.

    Here is the law of retail that indie polish makers need to learn: You cannot sell what you don't have. Everyone knows that store they won't go to, even though it's close by, the cashiers are friendly, it's clean and well-lit, they have nice restrooms, etc., but they won't go, because everything they go to buy at that store is out of stock.

    It's not enough to make beautiful polish. You need to sell it. If that means expanding, hiring more people, devoting more time to networking with distributors, upping your production, do it--because I would buy the daylights out of this polish, were it available.

    Sadly, it is not. So: No $13 for the manufacturer, and no beautiful nails for me. Lose-lose.

  4. soooo lovely! the only reason i've been able to talk myself out of this one is its similarity to the super amazing hits unconventional.

  5. badger, if it's any help at all - i find that crows toes either doesn't have the rabid following or DOES make a whole bunch bigger lots than some other indies. you may miss her really sought-after ones on the launch, but by the 2nd or 3rd restock, no stress to getting all of them you want.

  6. I haven't had any issues getting my hands on the indie polishes I've wanted, even the popular ones. I feel like the polish community is just so very "gimme now" and then throws a tantrum when they don't get it within five seconds. Most indie polish makers already have full time jobs with benefits and making polish is just a hobby that they happen to make some money off of. I personally think it's incredibly unfair to ask them to abandon their career just so you don't have to wait a few restocks to snag that color you want.

    I absolutely adore Indian Summer. I layered it over red undies for the red tones to pop more. Gorgeous polish!!!!
