CrowsToes Quarter Till Today

Residing in the depths of Mount Untried, I unearthed a gem from CrowsToes' 2013 Fall collection when the man suggested purple, and ooooh the pearly goodness!

Quarter Till Today is a slightly more red than blue shade of purple that's packed with a rosy copper shimmer.  It has a jelly finish that's not completely opaque after 2 coats, but looks great that way - while I'm sure it has layering potential, I wouldn't want to lose the base color.  See, it seems to me that this color is pretty much the exact shade of Fantasy Fire and all her friends/dupes, only with a not-quite-metallic shimmer instead of the red-to-green flash (note to self: use this as a base for Darling Diva's Ringer), and I have no interest in losing that pretty.

Even in low lighting, the coppery shimmer is there, as a smooth pearly finish to the purple base.  In a lot of ways, this is the darker, more purple sister to Orly's Fantasea, including the more fiery look to the shimmer in bright light.

outdoor, direct sunlight
The brighter the light, the more opaque and darker the base color looked, with no VNL at all in bright sunlight.  QTT has a gorgeous glassy shine, and no brushstroke issues despite the pearlescent look.

Yeah, I'm yellowed out by the lighting here, but the color of the polish is accurate, and this pic shows both the sheerness of the jelly, and just how much shimmer is packed into that bottle.

Rating:  4 out of 5 stars.  This did wear like a jelly on me (edgewear and very minor chips in 2-3 days), but this color is luscious.

Where to buy:  CrowsToes is sold through Llarowe.
