QRS Swatches of Cresskill Eve

Above & Below: Believe me when I tell you, I could not capture the many personalities of Cresskill Eve in my photos. I matted it (of course I did!), and it's one of my favorite matte shades now that I see it. I have no idea what those white dots are, because they're not on my nails!

I saved my favorite one from this first box for last, mostly because I wanted to wear it for a while and enjoy it's beauty. Naturally, it was cloudy all day and I'd already photographed it and was busy making dinner when the sun decided to come out, so I never did get to experiment with how it looked in the sunlight. This polish possibly holds a little bit of a secret duo chrome, but until I can get outside with it, I won't know. Even if it doesn't, it is a fascinating shade from what I've seen of it so far. It's a green shimmer, the shade being similar to that of a chalkboard green, only with a glossy finish and shimmer. The formula in the bottle holds some beautiful gold veining which reminds me of granite or marble. That gold then appears almost as a thin gold veil over the green shimmer color. When holding the bottle and turning it in different lighting, I see olive, gold, gray, green or teal, depending on the light and angle. If you scroll down, you can see the other 4 Quirius/QRS polishes I've swatched today, as well as my original post from Friday showing you all of the colors I received. I'll start in on another box tomorrow for you.

I'd like to introduce you to a brand new blog by one of my followers and fellow nail polish lovers, Diana. She just started her nail polish blog so head on over and show her some love! She calls her blog Painted Lady Fingers, which is a great name and makes me hungry!


  1. I love this! It's a very unique shade. Just when I thought I'd seen all of the possible colors....

  2. Wow! This is the most beautiful color. Looks fantastic on you. I just love the greens. This is a fascinating green. I also love it matted. I will also be sure to drop in on Painted Lady Fingers. Have a wonderful weekend Mary and all the rest of the readers.

  3. Well, just as I expected, this looks amazing on your nails! I utterly love it. I bet it looks super neat out in sunlight, with that gold and grey I see swirling in the bottle! That's got to be one of those manicures where you stop and stare at your nails all the time.

  4. Hubba hubba!! Now that's an interesting color! I love it!

  5. Hi Mary! All these Quirius shades look amazing. I've never heard about them. They look stunning! I can't wait to see all the other colors. And Essie's matte about you just makes it even more astonishing. I kinda want them now! haha

    Btw, the package still didn't arrive yet :( I really hope it didn't get lost in the mail! Cause that would suck!

  6. This looks all kinds of wonderful. SO nice to see something new. Love it!

  7. Hi dear - sorry for not being here in a while. I saw I had a lot to catch up :-) I've never heard about QRS, but I see they have some great colors !

    This Cresskill Eve is such a great shade of green and it looks so pretty on you :-) I also really love its matte version - it turned out very special.

  8. Wow- This is beautiful... such a neat color - I think the sunshine photo isn't really necessary, because this polish looks amazing indoors and that says alot!

    Thank you for swatching and reviewing these so thoroughly - Thank goodness that the 'Jamaica' one is tweak-able, it really is just gorgeous and will be very popular along with this!

    You are an asset to nail polish lovers and I am certain that everyone will be thankful for introducing us to this brand of polish ( $3 each ===awesome! )

  9. wow, this one already looked very special in the bottle but on your nails it's a real beauty!
    QRS's sales are likely to go up thanks to you ^_^
    I'm sure all nailpolish addicts are thankful you let us know about this brand :)

  10. I knew you would all love this one too! I'm so behind in commenting, but know that I read and enjoy all of your comments, and when I stop posting 5x a day, I'll be back to commenting back. I'm glad you are all enjoying them and Deez, it's my job to inform and make you spend more money! I enjoy doing it and I thank you for your kind comments. Tuli, always nice to see you again! Nail Fanatic, I'm going to the post office tomorrow to mail some things and I'll see what I can find out. Don't worry, you'll get them one way or another, I'll be sure of that :)
