Oh My Gosh Baby Blue + CrowsToes Bunny Slope

I've become a huge fan of the Oh My Gosh polishes; they're cheap (albeit smaller than a full size polish) and great quality. Definitely a good way to get a few good staples in your collection- they are all creme polishes in mostly straightforward colours, but from what I've seen, the formula is outstanding. Today I have Oh My Gosh Baby Blue to show you: probably the only baby blue creme you'll ever need. This was perfect in two coats, and application was a breeze. 



How soft and perfect is this? I love it!


I thought Baby Blue would make a great base for CrowsToes Bunny Slope, a silver/white glitter topcoat. I recall seeing Jennifer from Little J's Nail Corner do a manicure using a pale pink as a base for this, and I thought a pale blue might be similarly pretty. I think I was right!


Soft and snowy looking, like fresh powder. Bunny Slope is an appropriate name for this!



What do you think of this combination? Have you tried any of the Oh My Gosh polishes, or any lacquers from CrowsToes?

If you want to see other Gosh polish swatches, click here- I highly recommend both Baby Blue as well as Cobalt Blue, which is a real stunner. I've seen Gosh products at Shopper's Drug Mart in Canada, but I'm not sure where they can be purchased internationally. I ordered my bottle of CrowsToes Bunny Slope from Llarowe. At the time of posting, Bunny Slope is currently in stock- grab it quick if you've been lemming it!

  1. Love the color. I like it both with and without the glitters.

    1. I agree- good both ways; it's also fun to add glitter over a plain mani to give some pizzazz.

  2. I've read so many good things about oh my gosh... can't get them in the US though :( I only have two Crow's Toes, both are amazing glitter combos. I love your fluffy snow manicure!

    1. Aww, no Oh My Gosh in the states? That's too bad! I just assumed they would be available there. If you ever want me to send some your way, just let me know! ;)

  3. Wow I love how you used Bunny Slope over a pale blue! I remember you mentioned trying it over a baby blue. I'm going to have to try this too! I absolutely love Bunny Slope!!

    1. It's so soft and pretty for a glitter, isn't it? Usually I think of glitters as adding a bit of an edge (sometimes literally!) to a manicure... but in this it seems to soften it. Bunny Slope is definitely a winner. :D

  5. Baby blue is pretty! But colours like that worry me. I fear they'll get clumpy and streaky over time and will stay that way no matter how much thinner I add. Also lovely combo :)

    1. Does this tend to happen with pastels? I know they tend to be streaky, but didn't know they get worse over time. :( Hope that doesn't happen with this one!

    2. I find personally that polishes that are opaque in less coats to begin with tend to get more streaky over time. But the pastels I have that are sheer (4 coats) seem to not have that problem. Hopefully that wont happen to this one though. :/ And I don't have a whole lot of pastels so maybe I've been unlucky with the few I own.

    3. That's good to know! I was totally unaware. I'll have to go check out my pastels and see how they're fairing!
