Hello!! I am back with another Nail Friday! So far so good...I hope I can keep this up! I know that I'm not the most creative nail person out there, but I enjoy sharing my collection with you and it gets me using them. This way I'm not just a hoarder. :P
First, I just wanted to say thank you to all the ladies on the Facebook group, "Canada Beauty Box Trades Or Selling" for participating in my Nail Fridays as well!!! I love seeing what everyone has done with their nails and I hope that it encourages all of us polish
hoarders collectors to use their hoards collections!
This was my New Year's manicure. I'm actually still wearing it and only did a minor touchup! I'll probably be taking it off today. I used Quo by ORLY - Fairytale on all my nails and layered Julep - Vivien on the accent nail.
The Quo by ORLY is a mini polish. It came in a package of 18 as part of the Quo holiday collection. It retailed for $40. After Christmas it was 50% off. They sold out really quick. I got mine with Shopper's Optimum Points for free. Quo is an exclusive brand to Shopper's Drug Mart. Some of the colours are made into full size bottles, but I don't believe all of them are. The Quo formula is really good and it took 2 coats to get this opaqueness. The miniature bottle also means a smaller brush which took me some getting used to. Once you are used to it, it's a breeze! I'm so excited about the Quo by ORLY polishes because there are tons of cute colours!
The accent nail was painted with Julep's Vivien. Vivien was in the December Julep Maven box. It's a really chunky glitter with large hexagons. It does have a base colour in it that resembles Sienna. I just layered it on top of one coat of Quo "Fairy Tale" Like most chunky glitters it has to be dabbed on rather than swept on. I did sweep it the first time and didn't get much glitter on. This was a really thick smathering (I made a word!) of Vivien. I wanted it to look super chunky and sparkly!
Do you have any of these colours? What do you think of the colours I used...is it something you would try? I'm really interested in getting more Quo colours!
Have a lovely weekend!
