CrowsToes - Gomez

FI-NAL-LY! *clutch fists* After waiting three full weeks, my bottle of Gomez arrived.  Gomez is complex glitter bomb made up of various sizes and quantities of black, blue, gold, silver and purple hex glitters and some black bar glitter.  Here it is layered over Sinful Colors, Slate, a medium gray shimmer polish. 

Right hand.  Thicker coat of glitter.

Left hand, glitter is more sparse here.



I had a much better time controlling the glitters with Gomez, than I did with, I Make the Path, the other CrowsToes polish I posted.  Gomez seems to have more clear base in it.  My right hand has one thick coat and the left hand has a thin coat.  Sometimes I really don't like my glitters so crowded but in this case they were pretty both ways. 

The mixtures of glitters in Gomez are very nicely done.  The black adds some depth and dimension. The gold, silver and blue sparkle.  Blue, I would say is the main color and the small amount of purple is a nice surprise and balance.  I think Gomez will definitely be in my top 10 polishes for 2012!  Its like crusted jewels.  Extraordinarily engaging!

I got my bottle of Gomez from shop.llarowe.com, for $14.  Expect delays, in this case, I think it was worth it.  I probably sound like a whiny, impatient child, but I'm used to store bought polish, and when I buy polish online I generally buy from eBay.  Which many times, polish ships out in one business day and shows up in my mailbox, two to three days later (domestic mail), not three weeks later.   However, I can forgive, because I did get a couple of mass notification emails about shipping delays, which is better than no communication at all.  I highly suggest visiting my other CrowsToes posting on I Make the Path. In the comments sections there's a discussion on shopping experiences with Llarowe.  Please check your bottles as soon as you get them in the mail.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. thats so beautiful and i think the base color you chose is perfect! i have been seeing a lot of indie polishes w a black glitter/hex and matte glitter/hexes look so great against really bright ones!

  4. It is gorrrrrrgeous :D *spanish accent needed* It looks wonderful over that Sinful's grey!

    Most of the times I don't have a choice and have to buy online. In Spain, practically no shop carries OPI, and none has China Glaze (!!!) so eBay saves my arse every time. I have to live with delay, but it's so worth it! Three weeks seems a lot even to me though,but now you have it you can skip that and enjoy that pretty little jewel!

    2. It's super sad, right? None of the american brands get in here, unless it is through eBay. A total drama.

      I'll think about opening that shop..!

  6. Okay I buy a lot of glitter polishes, but I don't think I've seen one as unique as this! The black glitters really seem to make a statement amongst the other glitters! You did a great job pairing it with Slate! I haven't seen a swatch of this polish as great as yours! I overlooked this one at first, now I want it!!
