Hello Girls I have 3 polishes to show you today from a new brand in India called “Stay Quirky”. To begin with I love their name, it’s funky. Luckily now we have a lot of choices in Indian market for nail polishes which is a very good thing. We are getting colours, textures and variety. Stay Quirky has launched a lot of polishes in various ranges, so you are spoilt for choice. Their pricing varies depending on the line of polish. The three polishes I have are 897 No Rules from Polish Dry Line (Rs 200 for 8ml), 816 Mean Dean from Silk Effect Shades (Rs 190 for 8ml) and 607 Sane No More from Glitter Line (Rs 240 for 10ml)
So let’s begin with the first one called No Rules from Polish Dry Effect Shades. It is a glitter bomb in itself and a textured polish too. I feel they are on similar lines of Maybelline ColorShow Glitter Mania. This is almost a dupe ‘Matinee Mauve’ from ColorShow but I find these grittier and more textured.
It is rose pink colour with mauve touch to it. Along with pink glitters there are silver ones too which make it look fancy. I was worried about drying time but they are pretty fast. I guess this I have seen in most of the texture kind polishes, they dry fast. Colours of this nature and finish would go very well with Indian attires.
Next up is Mean Dean from Silk Effect Shades. It is a fresh mint colour in pearl finish. I have not seen a mint colour in pearl satin finish. Honestly, even if I would have seen it I would have never picked it. And similar were my initial feelings when I saw this polish. But when I applied it, the story changed. It looks pretty and girly on nails.
The pearl finish gives it a very soft touch and mint colour is just so fresh. The application was smooth and it dried up glossy. However pretty, as a matter of personal choice it still looks a bit old fashioned to me. But it’s a good base for any nail art. So my mind is running marathon to decide which nail art to do on them.
The last but prettiest of all is the glitter topper Sane No More from Glitter Line. It is golden glitters and hexes packed in a sheer black base. I don’t think it can build up on its own. You will need black base if you want to avoid 3 to 4 coats of polish. The polish is stunning and black & gold never fails.
I realised I could not be just swatching this polish since it will not show on its own, so I did some minimal nail art to bring out the beauty.I applied Wet and Wild Black Crème as base on all my nails. I applied one generous coat of the SQ Sane no More. I was thinking I may have to go in again but it was so glitter packed that one coat was more than enough.I stamped with ColorShow Bold Gold on two of fingers to complete the look. It did make the polish and the look very complete. What do you say?
Overall, I would say Stay Quirky has insane range of colours and finishes, some of which have never been launched by Indian companies. Having Textured, chromes, metallic, creams, glitter toppers etc in their collection from Day 1 of their launch is fascinating. The packaging looks sturdy and the name is really ‘Quirky’. However, my biggest put off is the Unnamed Bottles, Really?. How can anyone be expected to remember the Polish numbers that also written at the bottom of polish which fades in no time. I am guessing they have already got this feedback and they are working on it. The price of these polishes seems a little higher as opposed to its competition but may be the variety justifies it, not sure. But they are worth trying out for sure. My favourite is their New Jersey Collection. I already own 3 of them and may be getting more sometime soon.
