CrowsToes The 9 Realms Collection review

Hi guys!
I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend so far!

Today I have the CrowsToes The 9 Realms collection to show. Probably one of the BEST collections released in a looong time. They're making their debut on llarowe today at 12pm MDT and again at 7pm MDT so mark your calendars alarms!

The 9 Realms collection is inspired by Norse Mythology and more particularly Norse Cosmology, something that you must be familiar with if you're a Marvel or Thor fan.

This is going to be a very picture heavy post so I'm going to try and keep descriptions short but brace yourselves for major lemmings ahead!

Midgard is a cool nude holo with coarse green shimmer particles. I used 2 coats plus topcoat. "Midgard is where we reside., riggght here on planet Earth".

Alfheim is a seafoam green holo with coarse icy blue shimmer particles. I also used 2 coats plus topcoat. "Alfheim is the home of the light elves".

Asgard is a sky blue holo with gold micro glitters. Again, 2 coats plus topcoat shown here. "Asgard is the home of the aesir gods - Odin, Thor, Loki....among many others".

Huginn & Muninn is a strong purple to green multichrome shimmer in a dark blue base. I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat, no black underneath. "Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory) are Odins' pair of loyal ravens that he sent throughout the realms every day., They would return to him and report all they had seen throughout all of the worlds".

Nidavellir is a greenish teal to purple/magenta/gold multochrome shimmer with matching color shifting glitters. This is also 3 coats plus topcoat, no black undies. "Nidavellir is the home of the dwarves., the master crafstmen of the realms who were responsible for creating many a magical item used by the gods of asgard. Thor's hammer, Odin's ring and staff are a few that come to mind".

Muspelheim is a deep blue to purple/copper multichrome shimmer with a mix of matching and contrasting color shifting glitters. Shown below : 3 coats plus topcoat. "Muspelheim is the home of the fire giants and demons., the realm of fire in the south guarded by the giant Sint".

Vanaheim is an antique gold to green/blue multichrome shimmer with matching color shifting glitters. I also used 3 coats plus topcoat here. "Vanaheim, located within Asgard, is the home of the fertility gods".

Bifrost is a deep, dense, multicolored glitter in a clear base. I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat. "The Bifrost is the rainbow bridge that connects Asgard and Midgard".

Jotunheim is a grape purple jelly with an intense mix of holographic gold and color shifting glitters. I used 2 coats plus topcoat but I could have gone for 3 for more opacity. "Jotunheim is the home of the ice giants".

Niflheim is a blackened blue base with purple shimmers and gunmetal micro glitters. This one needed 2 coats for full coverage. "Niflheim is the coldest, darkest region of all, it is the realm of freezing mist and darkness".

Svartalfheim is a midnight blue jelly with a mix of blue and gunmetal glitters as well a holo micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat but you'd get similar results with one coat over dark blue. "Svartalfheim is the home of the dark elves".

Helheim is a black jelly packed with warm toned flakies, mainly pink, purple and orange. I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat. "Helheim is the home of the dead located directly below Niflheim".

So... where do I even begin?
I love everything about this collection. They are all mysterious, complex, totally unique, not to mention the amazingly detailed research behind each color. I was all oohhs and aahhs when I unwrapped them and I can guaranty you that if you're into dark colors, you will love them too!

The CrowsToes The 9 Realms Collection will be available for purchase on today at 12pm and 7pm MDT. I can already sense a really popular collection so act fast.
