Ever heard of CQ nail polish? I hadn’t until not too long ago when I was at Rite Aid and saw a little display with these little guys sitting quietly and prettily on it.
CQ Cosmetics is a brand that focuses on delivering quality nail polish and other cosmetics at affordable prices. They also put out the drugstore nail brands Chameleon and Petites.
These are small little bottles, but boy do they pack a color punch! These three were really saturated and has a great glow about them. All of these were just two coats.
Rustic Dream is a pink/orange duochrome color. The base is pink and then depending on the way you move your hand you see flashes of orange throughout. It’s not a super duper heavy duochrome, rather more subtle.
Golden Green is an amazing deep olive green with heavy yellow shimmer. This one glows and it’s just really hard to take your eyes off of. A great addition to my ever-growing olive green collection.
Idyllic is s warm purple/red duochrome. Again this one is more subtle, but the duochrome effect is there. I love how it’s not red, not purple, just this interesting shimmery berry type color.
I have yet to do a wear test with these, but as you know, I normally change out polish within 2 days anyway so wear isn’t as important to me as color and application. For inexpensive little polishes from the drugstore I am impressed with these for sure!
Availability: Walmart & Rite Aid
