Quirius Erin Island

Be prepared for an outpouring of hyperbole, please.

2 coats over Bourjois Beige Sophistique which I am now using as a (brilliant) base coat.

Jenni, I haven't seen Quirius in the shops. How did you come by this?
I'd seen it around a few times on the blogosphere and looked up QRS/Quirius and thought I MIGHT get some.

Why d'you say MIGHT?
Well, I know it's a US brand but I've got this issue with things being made in China.

So what did you do?
I emailed them and asked where they make their polishes and ya know what? They got back to me within the hour and told me their polishes are made in New Jersey (or Noo Joyzee as I like to think of it). So that was fine.

And you ordered some. Doesn't that work out expensive?
Well, it was $10 for 6 polishes and the grand total was less than $26. Today that's £16.92. Expensive? I don't think so.

So you got them obviously. How long did you wait ?
I think it was 9 or 10 days. They were meticulously packaged AND they sent me an extra!

So I got 7 polishes! Ordered 6 and got 7.

Frozen Tears and Erin Island.
I have 5 more to show you. 2 foils, 2 cremes and an extraordinary shimmer. Colours? 2 blues, silver, green and pink.
Their customer service is excellent. I LOVE the bottle design. I love the range of colours and I adore the one I first tried (Erin Island).
Google QRS Beauty and take a gander.

What retail therapy has been brightening your week?


  1. I love it, what a fabulous colour (and a good price, too).
    My new TopShop boots might have been my favourite but there again the velvet jacket on today's blog comes a close second. xxx

  2. How great that they sent an extra! I've yet to try this brand but these two colors sure do look nice.

  3. Wow, that green makes you look tan, way tan! That was so nice of them to send you an extra! I've been shopping for house stuff 'cause I'm in the process of moving as well as some things for a giveaway! =)

  4. Try Quirius!
    Giveaway and a move. Major stress. Enjoy the shopping-part.

  5. Yay! You got your polishes! Isn't it great how they include such a nice surprise?
