Quo Flirt

I let my daughter pick my polish today because I just couldn't decide. With almost 400 choices, it can get overwhelming. She picked Quo Flirt for me.

I was excited to try this polish because I had never tried Quo before and I just received this polish in a giveaway win from my friend Meve. The color was gorgeous...a medium blue-toned purple metallic with lots of blue and pink micro shimmer in it. The formula, on the other hand, left something to be desired.

The polish was very thin and runny, and applied super sheer for how dark the color is. I had to use four coats to get the saturation you see in the pics. Lots of pulling at the bottom of the nail with each coat. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a 3/4 coat polish as long as it applies easy enough. But, this was almost painstaking! Even at four coats, there were still a few bald spots and uneven-ness, but SV took care of that for me.

My camera had a hard time capturing the beauty of this polish (even though it was a pain, it was gorgeous in the end!) I ended up having to take the pics outside in direct sunlight, because when I took them inside, they were coming out too blue. Take a look...

Indoor lighting doesn't do much for her sparkle, but outside, she really shines!!
