|Quo nail polish (L-R): Prepster, Naked, and Super Cute|
I normally don't buy Quo because I find that their nail polishes are overpriced. But there was a buy two get one free deal, and I believe it ends February 23rd (tomorrow). So if you are interested in them, try to get them asap, while the deal is still on. There were a few other new colours, but I picked up the three that were most appealing to me.
Naked is a nice pale nude creme. It's the closest I have in my collection to mannequin hands for my complexion. I can see myself using this when I need a "palette cleanser" or as a base for nail art. The formula was great and I used two coats here.
Super Cute might have a lame name (imo) but the colour is gorgeous. It's a nice dusty rose with a gold shimmer that looks like micro flakies. It was a bit sheer so I needed three coats for full coverage, but otherwise I had no issues with the formula. It's a nice girly colour, and it's a great spring and summer colour.

Prepster is my favourite colour out of the three, but I love blue so that's no surprise. It's a pale sky/aqua blue with a beautiful lavender/blue shimmer. But the formula is my least favourite. It's very sheer, and even with three coats there were still some patchy areas. I touched up those spots, so technically this is 3 1/2 coats. I don't know if I would have the patience to do 3-4 coats for a regular manicure, but I have a feeling this would be good for nail art. Perhaps another watercolour mani is in order. :)
Overall, I really like these colours as a spring line. So many companies are coming out with pastels and it's refreshing to see lighter colours that don't quite fit into the pastel category. As far as I know, Quo nail polish is only available at Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix stores and it retails for about $10.99, but it occasionally goes on sale.
What do you think of these colours? Canadians out there, have you tried Quo, and if so, what do you think of it?
Edit: It was pointed out to me by Manicure Addict on Instagram that Super Cute might be a dupe for Orly Preamp. I don't have that particular Orly polish, but based on the photos I've seen online they look very similar.
