It looks like every company is jumping into the Gel-like trend, how do you feel about?
Quo Cosmetics, if you didn't know works with Orly which brings us a nail polish brand called Quo by Orly. The brand is exclusively sold at Shoppers Drug Mart which is super convenient considering they're pretty easy to find, if you live in Canada. Lol, I would hate to have forgotten to include that then you're non-stop searching for one & you live in the US.
So recently, roughly in the beginning of the month they launched the Color Amp'd line which is a new, next level evolution of nail colour. Said to deliver flexible, non-damaging manicure that only requires two steps. The wear is said to wear like a gel without the lamp with the added bonus of being removed as quick as a regular polish.
The formula maintains an elastic-like flex, while being smudge proof and last more than a week. Sadly I don't wear a nail polish that long so I didn't have the mental strength to test that out for you. The press release sheet I have says that The formula contains polymers that contain Damage-Fixing Technology, which will absorb the shock when you bump your nail off of an object that would usually leave your regular polish nicked, smudged or dented. Interesting, eh?
|Quo by Orly Color Amp'd Flexible Color - Cali Swag|
Cali Swag is a deeper pink, with slight purple tones, which makes it a very interesting and beautiful shade. 2 coats for full opacity. As well the polish matches the bottles "preview" shade.
|Quo by Orly Color Amp'd Flexible Color - City of Angels|
City of Angels is a very beautiful super light blue with iridescent pink shimmers that reflect a slight orangish gold tone. This colour is on the more sheer side so I did apply three coats. Also the polish itself really doesn't match the bottle colour "preview".
|Quo by Orly Color Amp'd Flexible Color - Sunset Strip|
Sunset Strip is a eye blinding darkish, neon orange. The opacity of this polish is surprising good for it being a neon, only two coats needed. As for the colour "preview" exact match!
The instructions of use are:
- Step 1 - Being by performing a dry manicure. Lightly buff the nails and clean the nail surface with alcohol. Apply two even coats of the Quo by Orly Color Amp'd Flexible Color, which is available in 24 unique shades.
- Step 2 - Finish with 1 coat of the Quo by Orly Color Amp'd Flexible Sealcoat to seal in colour and shine. Sealcoat will set in less than 8 minutes. Smudges will continue to self-repair until the Flexible Colour is fully dry.
- Tip: For extended wear, reapply Sealcoat after 3 days. To remove, use regular nail polish remover.
