My First Glitter Crelly (Orly by Quo: Redshift)

I have been a terrible, terrible blogger. I freely admit this. Apologies.
But I am ready to get back on track. I plead the holidays. That's a good one, right?

So, for my first post for 2014, it's not even going to be a fatshion post. This is about the nailpolish.

For a little bit of history, I love me some nailpolish. I've got a bit of a reputation for my nail art (in my social circles) because there was a period of time where I was doing nail art and posting it on FB, like, once a week. I haven't done much nail art lately, but I still do really appreciate a nice set of nails. I would trawl nail polish blogs, and I would see all kinds of custom polishes (that I would never order, because honestly, they are a bit expensive to begin with, and then international shipping to Canada? Fuggedaboutit) and the ones that I coveted the very most, were the ones that had a crelly base (I do believe that means a creamy jelly) with loads of glitter. I'd never seen a glitter crelly in stores. Until today... Although I generally stay away from glitter polishes because they are such a BITCH to get off, when I saw this new (I think!) collection at Shopper's today, I barely hesitated to pick this up. And I need more nail polish like another hole in my head.
I really wish I had paid closer attention, because I cannot find anything about it online. It was a galaxy-themed collection, and I recall that there was another crelly glitter (called Infinity and Beyond, I think) and a nice black glitter polish (can't remember the name) a deep blue glitter polish, and some others that I didn't really pay much attention to. I only had eyes for this glitter crelly. Not sure why I went for this one as opposed to the cooler-toned Infinity and Beyond, but I did.

Quo by Orly's Redshift is a beige-toned crelly packed with three different sizes of glitter. Large round silver, medium pale gold hex, a slightly smaller medium pink hex, and a small red hex. Really pretty. And here is what I think about it:
MUCH better coverage than I anticipated. Crellys are usually so sheer and streaky. I thought about using this over a white, but then figured I'd try it solo. And I am glad I did. These are two coats, and they are opaque enough for me.
The formula was... well, weird. Not bad, per se, just nothing I'd seen before. It was really thick, and I thought it would coat for shit, but it still flowed really well. If I had to pick a negative, its that the large round silver glitter was hard to get out of the bottle and onto the nail, but I think that's just the nature of the beast. The rest of the glitter dispersed pretty evenly (it didn't clump together at the top or bottom of the stroke of the brush). It is a bit bumpier of a finish than I would like, but perhaps a second coat of Seche Vite will take care of that.
Bottom line: Recommended. 
I'll have to go back to that Shoppers and check out the rest of the collection, maybe snag that other crelly, or the black glitter...
