CrowsToes Winter 2015 The Holographic Principle Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Today I have a brand new CrowsToes collection to share with you called The Holographic Principle! This collection is inspired by an episode of The Big Bang Theory where Leonard explains The Holographic Principle to Penny. This collection is launching on 11/29 on the CrowsToes website, links will be at the end of the post as usual. Also,  CrowsToes is having an awesome Black Friday sale this weekend (details at the end of the post!) so if there are any polishes you've been lusting after it'll be a great time to pick them up. Check out all the swatches after the jump!

A Volume Of Space is a blackened base with strong blue shimmer that has a touch of a purple shift along with silver holographic and gunmetal glitter in various sizes.  I really like this one, the glitter is more noticeable in the sun in person than it shows in photos and its the star of the show in lower lighting like the shade. The formula was good, it was a touch patchy on the first coat but completely evened out and opaque with the second coat. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below.


Hey! Get Outta My 3-Brane! is a pink leaning red holo. The holo is nice and strong, more than in looks in photos. The formula was really nice, it was a good consistency and applied nicely with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Just Another Gravitational Wave is a blue holo. The formula was really nice on this one also, it was good consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I did not have any staining which is also nice with these types of blues! I used 2 coats for the photos below.


Monstrous Moonshine is a red leaning purple holo. The formula was good, again really nice consistency and easy application. Its a touch sheer on the first coat but completely opaque with the second. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

The Holographic Principle is a silver holo. This is suuuuuuuppppper holo, its one of those holos that is not safe to wear while driving on a sunny day :P The formula was good, easy to apply and with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Look at dem rainbows
Unified Field is a green holo. This has some teal to it while I really like! The formula was good on this one one is surprised by now, right? I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Wheeler's Bag of Gold is a super dense gold flake glitter with a healthy sprinkle of gold holo glitter. This is kinda like what you would get if you took Zoya Ziv and put it on steroids, its awesome...and thats coming from someone who typically doesn't love gold polish.  The formula was good, it is absolutely packed with glitter but not thick at all and very easy to apply. I used 2 coats plus top coat for the photos below. You may need a couple coats of top coat to get this one smooth.

The Holographic Principle Collection will be available at on 11/29 at 10am est.  Each polish in this collection retails for $12.

For Black Friday CrowsToes is having  their sale starting on 11/27 at 9am est. The sale runs until 11/30 at Midnight EST. From 11/27 to 11/30 you can get 20% off you entire order of 2 or more bottles of polish. The code you need for the sale is CROW20


  1. The Holographic Principle looks just ridiculously holo :)

  2. I love CrowsToes - especially their label! These are awesome polishes - that last photo of the gold is unbelievable! Thank you.
