This was love at first stroke for me! It applied nicely in 2 coats and was an even application with no streaking. I sometimes have trouble with cremes because I don't wear them as much as shimmers, so I was very pleased with this one for that aspect. I would describe this shade as a sky blue, the color of the sky at noon on a perfect summer day. It's eye-catching, but not too bright. I thought I caught the slightest glimpse of shimmer during the application and it almost appears to have a tiny bit of shimmer in the photos, but it's actually a creme. I don't know if I should be calling these QRS or Quirius...the box says Quirius Nail Lacquer by Q.R.S. At any rate, I'm very pleased with them so far and Lucy, I hope you like 'your' polish! My final one for you up next is my favorite of this group, no big surprise there! It's a pine green shimmer with a hint of teal. I mentioned I had done the first of 4 boxes of 6 polishes for you today, but I then realized that one in this box was the top coat, so my next post will be the last for today, using Cresskill Eve.
