Quo by Orly ~ Celestial Star


Quo by Orly ~ Celestial Star  
Dark blue/purple shimmery duochrome

Quo by Orly polishes are only available in Canada, and that’s a shame because they’re really beautiful. I received mine in a swap, and I love the ones I’ve got. Celestial Star is the first one I’ve tried on. It’s a deep blue/purple duochrome with tons of shimmer in it. I was excited to find out if the beauty would transfer onto the nails.

First coat was streaky and weird, and drying time was rather slow. I applied a second coat, and that helped. Drying time was on the very slow and very boring side, but I managed to sit through it without denting the mani. The beauty definitely transfers onto the nail. The main colour is blue, and the purple flashes nicely as I twist and turn my fingers.

Here it is in all its glory; two coats, no top coat:


And from another angle:



I wanted to add some stars to the Celestial Star. Cheeky stamping plate CH4 has an all nail design with stars, and I used Konad’s white stamping polish for the design. And here’s the final result:




And from another angle – isn’t it just a fabulous polish? I love it!


Here’s a close up of the bottle. It depends on the light whether the polish flashes more blue or purple. But I love both colours, so I’m good with either of the two.


I’m in love with this colour, and I can’t wait to try my other Quo by Orly polishes on. Is it a brand you’re familiar with?

    1. I'm willing to sit through the drying time for this. Problem is that it's very difficult for me :D
