QRS Autumn Bronze and Yesterday's Prize Winner!




Above & Below: QRS Autumn Bronze...I'm oddly captivated by this shade. Outdoors, no flash.





Below: Indoors, with flash.
Below: My Greta girl, who thinks her owner takes too many pictures of her nails, but always likes to accompany me for the outdoor shots.
Congratulations, Natalie! She won the 5 piece Orly Treatment set in the daily giveaway I posted about yesterday. If you haven't seen her blog, Nani's Nails, check it out here. Out of all the giveaways during this month of Natural & Organic Beauty thus far, I think this one generated the most entries. So take note of that Orly, and keep up the great work! They make an excellent polish and an extensive line of top coats, base coats and treatments. I assigned each entry a number as I received it and used random.org to generate the winning number, which in this case was 15.

I have one more QRS polish to share with you this evening (scroll down if you missed the earlier posts today on QRS) and 6 more left to swatch from my order last month. If you like these polish colors, don't forget to use the $3.00 Body & Soul discount coupon (see details in the right hand column above) should you decide to place an order. This shade is called Autumn Bronze, and in the bottle it looks like a tarnished brass color. To be honest, I thought it was going to be one of my least favorites. It's not gold and it's not olive, although I did see touches of both when I held the bottle up for inspection. It is a shimmer and if you click the pictures you can see more detail of the shimmer hues. Now, some people may not like this shade because it is different and a little hard to describe, but I owe Autumn Bronze a big apology. It's different alright, but different isn't a bad thing! It appears more gold in some lighting, more olive in other lighting. The first coat was streaky, the second made everything fine. I don't know what it is specifically that I love about this one, but if Autumn Bronze will accept my apology, I think we'll have a long and happy friendship.

For those of you in Canada, Q-Nail/QRS will be offering shipping to you in the near future. They had a glitch in their system a while back that allowed you to order, even though they aren't quite set up for that yet. They honored the orders at that time, but will soon be ready to accommodate you on a regular basis.

  1. Wow. Mary, I am in love with this odd color! I like the olive in it, but I don't think I could categorize it either. It's GORGEOUS. As is your girl! I love looking at pics of her. She's pretty for sure! But you know I have a special weakness for German Shepherds anyway. ;) I just want to squish her.
    Congrats to Natalie! That's so cool. I'm positive she's gonna love that package!

  12. All~I'm so happy you all came back with positive comments on this shade! I really thought it was both beautiful and ugly at the same time, but there was something very captivating about it. Greta thanks you for all of the compliments on her beauty...she doesn't need beauty products, she's a natural beauty :)
