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!
