It has been a while that I talked about a Quo nail polish (nor bought a new one, surprisingly), so I figured today is the day 🙂
This is Quo by Orly Prepster from the permanent line.
The colour does not need any explanation other than it’s pretty and lands somewhere between a mint and a baby blue. The aqua shimmers are pretty!
I did 3 coats of Prepster on all fingers except the accent nail (see below). It is a bit of a setback when it takes that many coats to be (almost) opaque, but I personally don’t mind.
For comparison, on my ring finger is Wet n Wild Megalast nail polish in I Need a Refresh-Mint, another favourite among nail bloggers.
I Need a Refresh-Mint is a cream (without any shimmer), and only takes 2 coats. On the nail, it is a tad darker and more green toned than Prepster.
If finishes do not matter to you, you don’t need both shades. To me, the shimmers grant Prepster a spot in the stash. Justified! 🙂 For the opacity, I will use a base with it next time.
In close up, you can definitely see the sheerness of Prepster and the creaminess of I Need a Refresh-Mint.
And if I didn’t say enough about the shimmers, see them in this pic too 🙂 It makes the baby blue look more dreamy and iridescent – like the beautiful ocean that mermaids swim in, you know what I mean? Definitely the selling point for me.
So it’s already Thursday, I can’t believe it. It is going to be a busy weekend for me and Squirt before our trip. Already saw a few sneak peeks of Black Friday promotions popping up already. I’ll miss all those, so I’ll need you guys to tell me what you get, so I can be jealous 🙂
