Madam Crimson by QRS
Unfortunately I'm scheduled for gray skys and rain for the next several days (at least it's not snow) so full sun pictures are not likely to happen, but it's a very pretty color and I thought you might enjoy it. .
It does have a tendancy to bring out some ruddyness in my skin but I still like it. This is three/four coats topped with a thick coat of Seche Vite. Love S.V. Look at the reflection!
It needed a good mix when I started using it, there were some rather undesirable lumps in the polish when I first started using it that also necessitated a good brush wipe. An exception rather than a rule for this brand of polish.
Now, I need to solicite some advice from you my readers. I am slathering on loads of lotion (Curel Intensive, Gold Bond, Aquaphor) as well as my Burt's Bee's cuticle cream but working with fabric and paper and washing my hands frequently because I handle money is just sucking any moisture out of my hands. My cuticles are a hot mess and I was so frustrated with them snagging on things and looking so ratty that I broke down and...I hate to admit it, but... I cut them. Arrrgh, I know, I know. Bad me!!! So, any suggestions? (Preferably something I can run to a store to get and isn't too expensive.)
