Above & Below: The above photos are all taken indoors, the below ones are outdoors. I am able to notice more of a difference indoors, and very little difference in outdoor lighting. The Index and Ring fingers are Chanel Gold Fiction, while the Middle and Pinkie are QRS 24 Kt.
Below: The subjects of our study, side by side. Chanel has a coated bottle so you're not getting an accurate picture of the bottle color.
I was able to compare these two a bit better this morning and wanted to show you the pictures and see what you thought. The only differences I notice are very slight, but there are differences if you study them closely. The color/shade are almost exact, although the QRS polish is slightly brighter and doesn't have quite as fine of shimmer as the Chanel. The Chanel took 3 coats to achieve the look, while the QRS took only 2. The Chanel also took much longer to be dry to the touch than the QRS polish did. The Chanel brush and handle are much smaller than the QRS, so as far as ease of application, I'd have to pick the QRS polish. As far as the polish colors themselves, there's so little difference that I think it's safe to say that the QRS to as close to Chanel's as you're going to find. Of course the main difference is, it's not Chanel and that certainly counts for something, but it is close. What do you think?
Today's winner in the final drawing for the July contest is Tena. She does have a blog that's called NailsIt, although she has not made any posts yet. I've seen her photos on MUA and she is very talented and has beautiful nails. I added myself as a follower a while back and have been anxiously awaiting her posts, so maybe if you all check out her blog we can pressure her into posting!
