I actually won this polish (along with Girly Bits Indian Summer) from the giveaway that Ashley is PolishAddicted had last month! I'm extremely happy that I did because I wanted both of those polishes soooo badly. This one in particular because not only do I have a thing for brown polishes lately, but also because it represents the month of November in the Girly Bits Calendar Girls Collection, which just happens to be my birth month! If you haven't checked out Ashley's blog I highly recommend doing so. Her blog is one of the first blogs I started following & it's still one of my favorites! Thanks again Ashley!! <3
Crunchy Leaves is the absolute perfect name for this polish. It's a stunning glitterbomb filled with small hexes of orange, copper, brown, and itty bitty red bars, all in a sheer brown base that has gold shimmer mixed in with it! Even people who don't like bar glitter probably wouldn't mind this one too much because the bars are so small, you don't even realize they're bars until you look super closely at them! Application was easy peasy, not too thick or too thin, and no need for dabbing. I thought this polish might be gritty & need multiple layers of topcoat because of all the small glitters, but I'm very happy to report that it only needed 1 coat of topcoat to become totally smooth. Once again another score for Girly Bits!
This is 3 coats of Crunchy Leaves topped with 1 coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.
