Quirius: Home of the Brave and Another Lemming

Quirius Home of the Brave (3 coats Quirius with 1 coat of Fingerpaints Oh My Stars)

What an appropriate color for this weekend! The pictures of Home of the Brave with Oh My Stars on top are definitely more true to life than Home of the Brave on its own. It is a really dark blue creme that doesn't look black in any light (thank goodness). For some reason I thought that the glitter in Oh My Stars was much more spare, but alas I was wrong. I thought it would be cool to have the glitter seem like stars in the dark blue night...I know, really abstract stuff. Unfortunately it didn't really work, but I think it still looks pretty cool.

Oh Deborah Lippmann, why do you tempt me with your awesome Anniversary sets that are available only from Nordstrom? And why are you sooooo expensive? Here are the latest polishes that come out in July:

Across the Universe

 Bad Romance
All that Jazz Color Trio

Across the Universe and Bad Romance? Were they going with song titles? Either way, I love them the Deborah Lippmanns.

How are the brushes on QRS?

I've been dilly dallying on them for quite some time.......I can't decide because the first polish I tried from them was not so good in the brush department. I wonder if it was just a bad bottle or something.

Lovely swatches as usual.

The brushes are a little on the shorter side, and they are circular, not flat. I've never really had an issue with the brushes though. Not my favorite, but not really a problem, either. I hope that helps!
