Above: Just Take My Heart is a vivid fuchsia tone with violet blue flash (2 coats on all photos).
Below: Chapel of Love, a carnation pink, has the slightest bit of shimmer, but appears as a creme.
Below: Courtly Rose is a dusty lilac, and the blue flash adds a nice element.
Below: Rose Breeze is a toned down version of Courtly Rose, but it's more of a dusty mauve tone.
Below: J's Cappuccino is a metallic or frost shade that is not my favorite. It's a beige with slight golden undertones, but a little too 'brush-strokey' for me.
Below: Sand Castle is a light taupe shimmer with silvery undertones, but again, the finish is not my favorite.
I've always liked the polishes I've gotten from QRS, and their customer service has been exellent as well, but I'm not sure why they closed for several months to upgrade their online system. At any rate, their latest offering of shades (Fall/Winter) are nice, but nothing like some of their other shades--Paris Night, Cresskill Eve, Autumn Bronze and The Arabian Nights are some of my favorites. This collection is a nice, safe mix of colors, but I guess I was hoping for one or two that were really something unique. Has anyone else heard anything about QRS and their re-opening?
My daughter returned to school today after a nearly 2 week Spring break, so I have lots of catching up to do! I don't recall ever having a Spring break that was that long, but then again, it seems like they have a lot more days off than we used to. The first order of business is to give my poor hands and nails some attention. They've been neglected, so I'm going to try and get them back into shape.
