a few Quirius...es

OK, first I have to say that I think I hate the Quirius bottles. I mean, they’re a cute shape and all, but round bottles like this are impossible to get my fingers straight on, so my swatches end up looking kinda rotten.

OK Is Me, 4 coats.

Very streaky, so it took all of those coats to get it even, and then it was maybe a little lumpy. I really like the color though, it’s sort of a pale pink neon. Very very bright, and it dries matte. Sadly, I couldn’t capture the neon-ness of this color in pictures, so this is much brighter IRL.

Lucy Diamond, 3 coats.

I wonder if Quirius is like Funky Fingers, where when the entire polish name won’t fit on the bottle, they cut some words out? Because this name makes no sense otherwise. Anyway, this one’s awesome. It’s VERY bright blue, nearly neon. Doesn’t dry as matte as OK Is Me. I have other neon blues that are close to this shade, but they’re sheer like most neons are – this one is pretty opaque, so it wins.

Russian Red, 2 coats.

I was shocked at the opacity of this one. 2 lovely coats, it applied really well, and it is a BRIGHT BRIGHT shimmer. Very eye-catching. I really like it. See what I mean about not being able to get my fingers lined up straight? What a shitty swatch!
