Quirius by QRS Swatches in Strawberry Smoothie




Above & Below: All photos above are outdoor, no flash. Photo below is indoors with flash.
Of the polishes I've posted so far today out of this second box of 6 bottles, this is my favorite, keeping in mind I have 3 more to go and I'm saving what I 'think' will be my favorite for last. What I love the most about this one is the application. It applied absolutely flawlessly and honestly, I had near-total coverage on the first coat. It's a fun fuchsia shade, not too bright, yet summery and feminine at the same time. I thought I'd take this one outside because it reminded me of some hanging baskets of flowers I have in the backyard, and the sun is finally shining for us today. The pink petunias made a festive backdrop to this shade. If I had to tell you the one best trait of the QRS brand, it would have to be the formula. It dries quickly and I've been going about my normal household chores between trying on the various shades, and no matter what I'm doing 10 minutes after I've finished painting them, I literally can't seem to put a dent in them. I'm peeling vegetables for dinner, washing my hands and drying them with a dishcloth, doing laundry and so on. I even pushed into them with a dishcloth on purpose and nothing happened. Not only am I finding that the variety of shades available is vast, but they wear well too. The fact that they're only $3.00 and the customer service and shipping were wonderful, is just the icing on the cake.
