Perfectly Painted Quo by Orly 12 Polish Set

Hey everyone!

So, last weekend, at Shoppers (here in Canada) - they had a redeem your points for extra points.. whatever it was.. point redemption program. Yeah.

Anyways. I knew of 2 items I wanted to get.. then I saw this bucket of polish and thought 'why not!? I can blog this!'

Thankfully it was point redemption. This bucket of 12 minis was... like.. $32?! 12.. minis. Gross price for what it is. Now, had I have seen the price before I picked it up, I would not have even bothered. I mean, the polish is nice - but minis. Bleh.

Anyways. Besides the price totally sucking, I still went forth and swatched the colours. Some of them are amazing. None of them were terrible. So, small bonus.

I will go on to the photos, and just tell you the nam- oh, wait.. NONE OF THEM ARE NAMED. WTF?! THAT IS THE BEST PART OF POLISH. Ok, one of the best parts.

Yeah. Zero names. The sadness is overwhelming! $32 and 12 nameless mini polish. Cry.


I mean, looking at the shades.. you get a great mix..

This is a lovely peachy-nude, I used 3 coats. Dried exquisitely! 

Peachy-pink. 3 coats. The colour is very nice.
 
This is a grey-purple shift kind of polish. I know lots of people really like these.. they are all right. 2 coats.
 
This.. this polish is magical! It is like a smoky-lilac-grey gritty polish. Huge fan! 1 coat over that grey-purple number.
This is that classic cool-tone barbie pink. I like it. A fun colour! 2 coats.
 
 Midtone purple. I feel like this colour and that barbie pink colour are too tone-ally close to one another to include both in this set. Meh. 2 coats.
The colour of the season.. a nice burgundy shade. 2 coats.
 
   
This looks quite 'red' in the photo, but I would describe it as a raspberry pink.. polish people will get it. The formula on this shade was a dream!
 2 coats.  

This one.. I like this one. These 2 gritty glitter numbers were so fun! This is a red-gold shade, and it was 1 coat over that raspberry pink colour. I feel if you went over a purple polish, the colour might pull more purple-y. It might be a shifty polish.
 
Mint green polish. Always a crowd pleaser. Nice to work with. 2 coats.
 
These teal colours.. I owned one that was identical to this one by OPI back in the day. I always find them a pain in the ass to work with. The colour is lovely, though. 2 coats.
 
 And lastly, this little orange-red gem. I quite like it. 2 coats.

As you can see, there is really no 'awful' colour in the mix. Other than that purple being suuuuper tone-ally close to the barbie pink. 

I don't think I would recommend really getting this set unless you're a major Quo by Orly fan. I feel the price for what you get isn't worth it. 12 minis for like $32?! ugh. That just bothers me for some reason. AND THEY AREN'T NAMED. That kills me the most.

I will put these to use, but again, there isn't anything that I cannot already find in my collection (basically). But hey - live and let learn!

That is all for today. See you again soon!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
