Happy Hump Day! I hope your week has been going well. I have 4 polishes from the recently reopened Q.R.S. Beauty online store. They used to be called Quirius, but apparently people couldn't say it right or something, but they shortened it to Q.R.S. I've reviewed this brand a few times before, and I've been happy with the quality and the fact that are made in the USA with a 3 free formula. They retail for $5 each, but you can get sets that include 6 polishes and I think a clear topcoat for $30.

Up first is Candor which I picked up solely because of the name. Candor is the name of the type of soil I used for an entire year. Anyway, it's a bright neon pink with shimmer. Since it is a true neon, it dries to a satin finish, so I used topcoat. Neons are also notorious for being a bit sheer, so 3 coats was needed. The formula and application was just fine for all of these just to get that out there.

After the reopening, I noticed a lot of new glitters were posted, so Dark Chic had to be mine. It is a black jelly with silver, teal, purple, green and silver glitter. Oh, and star glitter that was hard to fish out. I love this one! It is a jelly, so 3 coats was necessary. The removal is brutal, so use the foil method.

For Juliette is basically a dupe of China Glaze's For Audrey which there is a comparison in the last picture. You can see that For Juliette is a bit more blue compared to For Audrey which is a dupe of Tiffany & Co. blue. They are a bit different, but I don't think you need both. For Audrey has a sweet spot in my heart because it has my name in it and I loved Audrey Hepburn.

And last, but not least, we have Sweet Mimosas which is a peachy coral creme. Perfect summer polish!

Overall, I really liked these polishes, and they have a great formula. They aren't as popular, but I hope they make a comeback now that they reopened. You can find more about them on their Facebook page or Instagram.
