PRESS SAMPLE: these were sent to me for an honest review
Hello lovely readers! I’ve got quite a busy next few days for you all! This evening I am dropping two more posts, and tomorrow should be another nice long review. Mary of Quixotic Polish is releasing her fall collection this weekend, and we’ve got some super pretty colors to look at! Let’s dive right in!
Purple Ash– a deep muted mauve base packed with various sizes of red/gold/green/blue iridescent color shifting flakes. $12
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is somewhat crelly, but has a touch more of a jelly lean. I think some might get away with two coats, but I’d suggest three light coats to plump it out and get that base color to pop like crazy.
Love potion no. 9– A mulberry base adorned with gold holo microglitters and gold holo flakes $11
Swatches show three coats with topcoat. Formula is similar to Purple Ash so again I’d suggest three thin coats. All three crelly/jellies in this collection dry down quite flat, so I’d suggest a glossy topcoat.
Scream Queen– a brick red multichrome shimmer that shifts primarily between red orange and greens $12
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a medium feel and builds up very quickly to opacity. This is so lush in person, it’s a crazy flattering cool toned red but has a warm color roll to a lovely luminous orange with green at extreme angles.
Autumnal Bliss– a beige leaning orange base with gold holo microglitters and red/gold ultrachrome flakes $11
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. I might have gone for a third coat, but I felt that two coats popped very well. It has a similar feel to the other two crellies above.
Feeling Wicked– yellow multichrome shimmer that primarily shifts between gold and green $12 *please note, due to the yellow pigments used in this polish, staining may occur, always use a good base coat to prevent staining
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is somewhat squishy, but dense and smooth on the brush strokes. I think most will be fine at two coats. This is so pretty. The base is a medium vibrant yellow, but the multichrome shimmer gives it a strong goldenrod lean. The shimmer appears as a strong reg glow, but gold at angles.
I personally did not have staining through my latex barrier for my swatches, but it is very pigmented so I’d suggest using a good base coat.
You can grab the full set for a discounted price of $55, and the first 50 orders to purchase the full collection will receive a free mystery polish! These will release Saturday, October 24th at 10am Pacific time. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see them in action!
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
